Will be buying the shoe version.
The good: I think that trekking boots with insulated inner boots or liners is a great idea. I even bought the insulated inner liner for these for winter use. (Exrta $100) They are not heavy, seem sturdy, and can be used with crampons.
The bad and the ugly: The outside of these boots is rubber-like and they are stiff. Really stiff.That would not seem to be an issue when you are walking on flat terrain or around the office to impress your friends. But if you take them out on a 45 degree slope, they are so stiff that when you lean forward to go up the mountain while keeping your foot flat, the hardware used to keep your laces tight digs into your foot. Every step up felt like having a knife on my foot. I ended up having to undo the laces and only lace them at foot level so that this pain would go away. Going back down, the boots are narrow and did not feel comfortable at all. When I got home and took them off, my feet had all sorts of sores. The boots seem to fit fine and are the right size when walking on flat ground.
In the pictures I attach you can see how I ended up lacing my boots and also the position of your foot on a 45 degree slope and why the back of the boot which is stiff has a hard time following it and the hardware for the laces ends up crushing your foot.
In short, I am very disappointed with this product and they are not for serious trekking or mountain climbing. For a flat hike around your local park they will feel comfortable, and I suspect this is what the Arcteryx engineers did when they tested them. Check out the pictures - these are new boots! But due to their rubbery outsides, they look terrible pretty quicly.
I am stuck with the boots now (I used them for about 6 hours on a 45 degree slope in the Sierra Nevada. I am also stuck with the gore-tex insulated mid liner, although I may salvage this with Sportiva 6000's as may inner boot.
This is my first bad experience with an Arcteryx product. I think Arcteryx did not test these enough. I would not recommend these for any serious hiker, trekker, or as approach boots for a climb.
