Vito L.wrote a review of Arc'teryx Acrux AR GTX Mountaineering Boot on February 14, 2017
I unfortunately live in an area where mountaineering boots are not sold, so finding the right boot is tough, to say the least. After signing up for an ice climbing trip in Ouray, I realized some new boots might be in order. After hearing great review about the Batura, I purchased a couple of different sizes online but they just didn't seem to fit, mostly due to heel slippage. So I decided to give the new Acrux boots a shot. They arrived 2 days before my trip and seemed to fit very well so I brought them along.
These boots were seriously warm for the weight of them, even while standing around in Colorado in December while belaying. They are waterproof on the outside with a zip up system that is bomber. The double boot system is very easy and being able to pull the liner out at night to dry the boots is great. While the lacing system may not be as advanced as the Batura, there is a velcro strap at the top which makes tightening a cinch. The only real issue I had is I felt some slight cramping in my feet which may be because of my low arches, so I took the liner out which fixed the problem, I think i'll look into a flat insole.
I definitely recommend these due to the weight and quality of the materials. Everyone was very interested in how they performed and the only negative feedback someone gave is that they looked too much like they should be worn with a tuxedo. I'll take it.
