Aerios FL GTX Mid Hiking Boot
The Arc'teryx Aerios FL GTX Mid Hiking Boot blends the lightweight comfort of trail running shoes with the protective, rugged properties of burly hikers for a fast and light hiking boot to tackle rugged, unpredictable environments on day-long hikes. The run-inspired design minimizes friction on long days while the taller collar adds ankle support that also helps seal out trail debris. Gore Invisible Technology keeps your feet dry through inclement weather while maintaining a flexible and breathable fit so you'll barely notice it's there.

Seriously in Love

These shoes have been amazing. I used to wear a standard trail shoe for trail running. I was not sure if these would be a replacement for a running shoe, or if it would only be useful as a light hiker. For me, they are good for both! Everything I run is off-road, w some steep stuff built in, and hammer down descents. These things are just comfortable. The tread on the shoes are like glue, and can handle pretty good angles. I typically wear a 12 in running shoes. I bought a 12, and it is a tiny bit long, but I just wear a slightly thicker sock and have no issues. The Euro size on a US 12 shows up as 46 2/3. One other note, I have a narrow foot. Wide feet may very well not work with these shoes.

I ordered an 8.5 US, and have narrow feet (not exceptionally, just average width never requiring wide shoes.) However, the EU size I received was 40 2/3 while I usually need a 39 EU. So I think their conversion is pretty far off. I'd need an 8 if I were to keep them. Also, zero arch support. The heel drop sinks in to cup the heel, but gets lost in the totally flat arch- it just stays low and flat throughout the foot bed. I do, however, love the fixed tongue and the goretex sole was grippy yet semi-flexible. Lastly, the laces are too skinny to get a snug closure- again, bony ankles. So while I loved the padding in the tongue, the laces still made it uncomfortable. So in all, not up to snuff for $185. They're going back.
