Awra - Boreal
Arwa is an alpine mountaineering boot made with the very best modern materials and a fit honed by extensive testing with a team of leading alpinists. The result is more precision, more warmth, better comfort, and far less weight than you would have thought possible. Arwa is like a traditional mountain boot which has been on a diet. Excess weight has been lost leaving a leaner and more athletic mountain boot which will take you faster and further. A perfect choice for ice/mixed climbing and general alpinism.

The upper is constructed entirely from lightweight synthetic textiles and has a full Thinsulate™ lining which even extends under the foot providing great warmth with no cold spots. Our unique Dry-Line® waterproof breathable lining guarantees to keep your feet dry and has superior water vapour transmission performance. The innovative Bi-Flex system allows the ankle to move freely greatly enhancing walking comfort and freedom of movement when climbing and a three-layer tongue provides plenty of padding against pressure points and adds some useful adjustment.
Arwa is fully compatible with automatic crampons and uses dual density crampon lugs, hard at the rear for a secure fit and soft at the front for reducing vibration when front pointing on bullet hard ice. The advanced carbon composite midsole is rigid, yet incredibly lightweight and ample underfoot cushioning is provided by dual density shock absorbing PU and EVA layers. Finally, our choice of a deeply lugged Vibram® Teton outsole will help keep you upright on the approach.
