Outside Magazine named this shoe Best Low Hiker for its superior stability, uncompromising fit, and trail performance. The Arete has a no-sew breathable upper that will keep feet comfortable on the warmest of days and its women’s-specific midsole delivers support in a lightweight package that is ready to go.
Length runs true to size. Form hugging heel cup, sculpted mid-foot, and a wider forefoot & toe box.
O FIT Insole® Our proprietary insole is what we’re known for. Molded to match the specific shape and construction of every pair we make, this purpose-designed technology delivers the kind of fit, feel and performance that’s unmatched in the industry.
A3 Chassis™ - Integrated Shank & ESS Plate The integrated shank reduces weight while providing proper support and flex points. The ESS forefoot plate mitigates over-flexion and protects from stone bruising.
A3 Chassis™ - Two Piece Suspension Independent TPU stabilizers provide torsional flex and allow for natural articulation while the single density EVA throughout provides cushioning and comfort.
Tempest Outsole Our Tempest outsole reduces weight without compromise, featuring multi directional and perimeter lugs for traction, and active flex grooves for freedom of movement.
Width: Standard - Women’s standard width is B in the heel and C in the forefoot (according to Brannock Device®). Patterns and materials in a given model may influence fit. We always recommend trying our footwear on to ensure the best possible fit.
Volume: Standard — Medium-High volume feet tend to be wider with higher arches and insteps.
