Just about the time I begin to complain about not having anything to write about something drops out of the sky and lands on my head. Today it came from the dead bird people in Canada and it is pretty big. Arcteryx footwear.
It is big for two reasons. First, I don’t think Arcteryx, arguably the finest outdoor gear manufacturer in the world, has ever made footwear. Second, take a look at what they are offering and you will see that it is special. Unique. Maybe even revolutionary. Watch this Youtube video and you will have to agree that they have pushed the concept of a hiking boot up a few levels.
Are they as good as they are different? I don’t know because I have not used them yet but we are talking about Arcteryx here so I have a high degree of confidence in guessing that the answer is yes.
