The Bora² Mid Leather hiking boot combines the advanced benefits of Arc’teryx Performance Footwear with the durable comfort and unique feel of leather. Arc’teryx Adaptive Fit technology employs a separate inner liner that stretches for custom fit that molds to the foot. The rich nubuck leather upper is single piece. This eliminates seams and stitch lines that can add weight, create weak points and irritate the foot. The unique outsole is the result of a deep collaboration with Vibram® to create a platform that delivers durability, agility and security on varied terrain. The injected EVA midsole and custom formed Ortholite™ footbed combine for comfort, stability, support and shock absorption. Every component of the Bora² is carefully developed and selected to provide performance and protection for hikers and backpackers that push the limits.


Comfort is confidence, and is especially important on long trips in big terrain. The Bora² Mid Leather GTX employs an exclusive design featuring a separate internal GORE-TEX® liner that conforms to the foot for an instant custom fit. The technology delivers best fit adaptability, helps eliminates irritation and hot spots, and improves breathability and weather protection. The unique stretch GORE-TEX® liner uses minimal seams and adhesive to secure the membrane, maximizing its breathable surface area. The separate shell and liner construction also allows the GORE-TEX® to extend to the very top of the collar, considerably higher than in traditional boot constructions, further increasing waterproof/breathable protection. An insulated GORE-TEX® liner, sold separately, is available for colder conditions.


A hiking sole needs to be durable, supportive and work with the foot as it strides, but this too often means sacrificing agility and traction. Partnering with Vibram®, Arc’teryx worked to create an outsole that could adapt to shifting trail surfaces and topographies, while still providing support and long haul durability. The result, the Vibram® Arc’teryx Hiking Outsole, is a custom patterned design that provides traction with grip. A zone at the forefoot delivers the friction to stick on hard rock and slick surfaces. The sole’s perimeter is modeled after a mountaineering boot for durability and grip, and the lugs combine bite with friction. The spherical heel design facilitates a smooth stride, and employs “Y” groove split heel technology for improved braking and agility.
