Extremely poor quality/ not durable.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Size Bought: 9
I'm extremely picky about the shoes I buy, and I tried on every Approach shoe I could get my hands on before settling in these, they fit my foot like a glove.
After using them exactly how Arc'teryx intended, to approach alpine climbs, they began blowing out on the sides and delaminating after only a couple months of use, weekends only.
I sent them to Arc'teryx for a warranty replacement and they refused to honor it, telling me "they seemed to be used for more of an intense use." I reiterated several times in greater detail how they were used, and they changed their story for why they couldn't honor it each time.
