    Conquer the off-road miles.

    New to the Norvan trail series, the Men's Arc'teryx Norvan LD Trail Running Shoe brings lightweight performance to your trail races and cross country runs. Unlike the Norvan VT, driven by an urge to conquer uphill scrambles, the Norvan LD is designed for all-day comfort on distant runs over variable conditions. Lightweight mesh uppers have a low-key, breathable structure that excels over the long haul, while 3.5mm square lugs on the soles drive you forward over variable terrain, giving you good traction without losing propulsion. Knowing you'll end with good time doesn't mean much if your dogs are barking halfway through a race, though, so Arc'teryx designed a comfortable yet protective midsole; a blend of EVA and polyolefin offers springy cushioning, while anti-fatigue inserts keep your medial heel from tiring out and a 7mm TPU chassis insert underfoot guards against sharp rocks. 

    • Minimalist trail running shoe for going the distance
    • Lightweight uppers provide distraction-free comfort
    • Square-shaped lugs grip a variety of trail surfaces
    • Cushioning midsole is reinforced for rock and shock protection
    • Lace closure provides secure fit mile after mile
    • Item #ARC00SW

    Surprising durability!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I suppose it's expected of Arc'teryx, but the quality of the material on these is definitely above par. I've had many trail runners that started to rip apart with one trip on a stump, but these have handled their fair share of roots and scree fields. The midsole is breaking down like any shoe after this many miles, but the body material hasn't even torn or worn through at all. My only complaint is that the toe-box is a little narrow, this is the case for most trail runners though.

    Surprising durability!

    Grand Teton Summit!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 210lbs

    I just used these shoes to Hike/Climb the Grand Teton. I can honestly say I love this shoe. I weigh 210 and with a 50lb. pack these shoes made the trip so comfy on my feet. They grip well too, making scrambling easy over all the boulders. They will get a little wet not being the GTX crossing streams but overall they are awesome!

    With so many running shoes out there is hard to pick one that works best for you. These shoes appealed for several reasons, they're about the same weight (few ounces heavier than some) as other shoes in their class yet they have less drop than most rugged trail shoes. And the colors available were hard to beat.

    What sets this shoe apart to me is the tread and the fit. While I feel its right in line with Salomon sizing the fit feels more natural and supportive around the heel. There is a nice cushioned pocket that the heel set inside that really feels locked down!

    The sole of the shoe is quite stiff with what feels like solid rock plate combined with the aggressive but firm Vibrim lugged tread help this shoe crush loose rocky trails while keeping stability that I feel gets lost with soft rubber. When on firm packed gravel and occasional side walk the tread doesn't feel like running on marshmallows. The "rocker" shape diverts the energy from heel strikes and rolls off the toe very smooth.

    The only down side I've encountered thus far is the color, I love loud colors! The Venom (Bright green) show dirt and mud off like they're proud of it.

    All in all this is a great all round trail running shoe, quiver of one if you will. Better suited for packed trails to variable terrain than soft dirt. Think the Enchantments loops, granite slab and loose rock to packed dirt in old growth forest. In a quiver (mine anyway) I'll take the Norvan for longer run over mixed terrain at a higher cadence. While keeping my minamalist or more aggressive shoes for more "training" type runs.
    I'll spring for a Goretex pair for Autumn for sure!
    For sizing, I wear La Sportiva in 43.5, Scarpa in 43, Salomon in 9.5 and Arc'teryx in 43.5(9.5) I feel like these brands fit close to the same for me.
