    Bora Bora.

    Combining the unbeatable waterproofing and toughness of the original Bora with a supple and durable nubuck leather upper, the Arc'teryx Bora2 Mid LTR GTX Men's Hiking Boot is a bomber boot made for tough alpine rock hopping, scree-covered passes, and marshy high meadows. Unlike most boots, it sports a fully removable inner mesh-and-foam bootie that Arc'teryx decked out with a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex membrane to provide killer comfort in soggy conditions without turning your feet swampy when the weather warms up.

    The Bora2 also utilizes Arc'teryx's Adaptive Fit design, which foregoes a tongue in favor of a slip-on construction designed to eliminate pressure points and hot spots. The inner bootie has an elastic collar to keep debris and water from slipping into your socks, and the Bora2 is also built on a solid TPU chassis to provide a solid feel on treacherously uneven terrain. An EVA midsole provides solid underfoot cushioning, and the Vibram Arc'teryx Hiking sole is made to keep you upright on trails that would have a mountain goat reaching for his trekking poles.

    Sole failed at 3 miles

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 200lbs

    Same issue as the reviews below. Right at the MTP, after a 3 mile easy hike, there was separation. Highly disappointed in my favorite company's boot.

    Returned at 3 weeks when sole failed.

    Bought the Bora2 3 weeks ago because I love arcteryx quality and design. Have their big backpack, snowsports shells, pants, etc etc, and all have exceeded expectations in function, durability, and asthetic. I got the leather Bora2 because I heard the synthetic ones creased and failed at forefoot (level of MTP joint) with heavy use. After 2 weeks i began taking pics and getting ready for an awesome review because they looked rad, and handled all terrain i put them through. Hiking 10-12 miles in steep Calle Valdera reserve in northern new mexico, with temps ranging from 20F at night to 65F and sunny in daytime, carrying medium loadout, they were stellar. Then last week i hiked about 20-30 miles total at Moab, Canyonlands, and Arches in Utah. Temps were 40s at night, 80s in daytime. Feet got a little moist but no more than with any shoe I've worn, I'm not a sweaty person in general. But they did stink more after each day use than my other shoes during that trip perhaps because of decreased air circulation in bootie. But what really floored me was when I noticed the rubber lip that comes up the side of the boot from the sole was separating. I thought, "well I'll just shoe goo it when I'm home". But felt weird seeing as I just paid 350$ for them a few weeks prior, and i would classify their use as "moderate". Comfort and grip were so amazing, I didn't want to admit failure. Then the sole started to crack and peel away. I showed my girlfriend and she immediately told me to send them back. I looked at her 2 year old Asolo hikers, and she had just hiked everything I did, and they still looked pretty much brand new. So, I contacted Arcteryx and they told me it would be faster to just exchange through the website i ordered them from, which i did and that was easy. So now i have a new pair and they look great. But here's the deal: are these going to break down again after a few weeks or months? We will see. At least i know arcteryx will replace or repair if needed, but i wonder if they got a little too far ahead of themselves when they got in the boot game.

    Not your typical boot

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I was able to put these boots on straight out of the box and do a 5 day backpacking trip in the canyons of the San Rafael Swell of Utah toting a 60lb pack with no blisters or foot pain at all (22 miles). I was surprised at the amount of support they provided while also being able to "feel" my foot placements while scrambling. The heel of the boot has a unique shape that works very well for steep descents as it grips tight and naturally rolls your foot forward. I had no issues with getting these boots on or off, you just have to understand your foot is in a bootie inside a shell and use the loops accordingly. I did find removing the liner was a convenient way to get them to dry faster (from sweat).
    The only concern I have with the liner concept is the lacing portion of the boot is exposed, so stepping into a weak ice puddle allows water to enter the boot and get between the liner and the boot shell. This is not an issue with normal boots that have a tongue to seal your foot off. With that said, if I know I will be hiking through water hazards, I will wear gators (which fit very well on these boots).
    They are pricey, but I am happy with the money spent, I just hope they stand up to the test of time like the 10 years I got from my last pair of Asolos.

    As one who is also an Asolo user I would like to ask you how alike or different you find the Bora2 to be in stiffness from Asolos. I've always liked the stiffness level of Asolos on rock and am considering the Bora2 as my next pair of boots. Thanks!

    For the Asolo guy: these boots are quite a bit softer in the sole than the Asolos that I punished over 10 plus years in the Sierras, but they provide better ankle support and way better with rocks and dirt getting into the boot. If they had a better breathing liner, they’d be perfect but brutally hot as is.

    Awesome Boot

      These boots are great because they don’t look like every other hiking boot on the market. I bought these for a friend and ended up returning them. His feet sweat a lot and the boot liner just didn’t work out for him. The traction on these amazing!

      Awesome Boot

      Pretty comfortable on a long hike I did while carrying 50 lbs. The booty and its ability to be interchanged is definitely the best part. The booties are great around camp or for some added warmth in a sleeping bag. I havent really used it that much but, it seems as though its incredibly durable and will last a long time.

      If you have any questions contact my friend Ben Rabinowitz, brabinowitz@backcountry.com. Hes on the expert team and can help you out.

      Another Great Arc'teryx Product

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I took the leap and would gladly do it again! I love just about everything about the boot. The removable liner has come in handy a few different times around camp to use a slipper, or even cold nights it can act as a bootie. To this point too, is the insulated liner that is available separately. Now the boot is extended to be used almost year round. The vibram sole has great traction, even on the wet rocks of the Adirondacks that I used them on several times, and out West here in the Northern Rockies, Wasatch & Uintas, and Southern Utah/ Northern Arizona.



      The only minor issues I have experienced with these, was the first speed hook can actually do its job too good. When untying, my laces have gotten stuck and takes a bit of some pulling the get the lace out.



      The fit was true to size for me. I typically am an 11 in majority shoe brands, and was the same case here too. I didn't experience any blistering with these boots at all, however, I am not typically one to get blisters from new footwear.



      I would definitely recommend these boots for hiking/ backpacking. If you have any questions about these boots, or any other gear, feel free to reach out to me directly!

      Per your description it appears that the hooks are like the ones in the salomon quest, when untying you need to pull up the cord and then do an outward movement. If not the hook will catch into the cord, if you pull straight away outwards with time the cord will get eaten away.

      These boots were incredible right out of the box. Hiked Mt Timpanogos for their first time use and my feet were very happy. Was a pretty rocky trail and the grip and support were very good. Went through streams and water did not come through. Usually I come out of this hike with blisters but with these boots I had none. Definitely recommend

      I'm so excited to have ordered these boots yesterday. I'm wondering if you have tried the (sold separately) insulated gore tex bootie in cold conditions. If these fit I'm strongly considering ordering the insulated bootie for cold weather camping/hiking.

      Unanswered Question

      Leather Conditioning?
      Hello just got these although the liners are Goretex would you still recommend treating the leather? I can't find any info about this and I have always treated my Scapa boots
      Thanks RMP
