Arc'teryx Norvan LD 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe - Men's


Why We Like The Norvan LD 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe

When we're out running trails for hours at a time we're subject to the fickle weather that mountains can bring. No one wants to be turned around by a sudden storm, so we grab this trail running shoe and keep cruising over puddles, mud, and slick rock. It's built using GORE-TEX Invisible Fit technology, which seamlessly integrates the waterproof membrane into the upper, so it can maintain a light feel and comfortable fit while being as breathable as possible when we work up a sweat.

  • Waterproof trail-running shoes for long runs in any conditions
  • GORE-TEX membrane shuts out moisture as you run through the rain
  • Vibram MegaGrip outsole offers reliable grip even in wet weather
  • Midsole cushioning reduces impact for long runs on tough surfaces
  • Air-permeable upper delivers super-cool comfort even in hot weather
  • Vibram LiteBase technology helps shed weight for an easy stride
  • Durable overlays resist abrasion on rugged or overgrown trails
  • Protective toe cap guards your forefoot in rocky terrain

It performed well both on the trail as well as on pavement. I bought this so that i could carry only 1 pair when traveling and wore it pretty much non-stop for 10 days while on vacation. It went from hikes or runs during the day to bars and restaurants at night. I haven't taken it on hard trail runs yet. It is fairly comfortable but it could use a little more padding. I have had to add an additional layer of padding for comfort. In terms of features, the waterproof lining works well and saved me a lot of headache during a few torrential downpours. In terms of sizing, i usually wear 11US or 11.5US. I tried both and went with 11.5 .
