A relaxing challenge.

Every impact of your foot against the trail brings you closer to mental clarity. While some people can sit still to meditate, you find your zen by running in the Arc'teryx Women's Norvan LD GTX Trail Running Shoe. 

Designed to get you through the harshest conditions, the Norvan LD GTX is equipped with Gore's new technology, the Gore Invisible Fit. This membrane offers complete protection in inclement weather while also giving a more flexible fit and feel, similar to what you'd expect from a non-protective running shoe. It's also perfectly matched to the upper material, eliminating wrinkles, folds, and reducing pressure points for a true-to-size forefoot area. In addition, Invisible fit also reduces weight in the shoe and dries faster than previous Gore membranes, which means you can find your zen even when the forecast isn't ideal.

To aid in traction on those messy trails, the Vibram MegaGrip outsole grips any terrain whether it is wet, dry, or muddy. The 3.5mm lugs dig into the ground so you're not skating down the trail. The midsole and footbed provide support and cushion, absorbing shock and helping your foot strike in proper alignment. The Norvan LD has a 9mm drop, optimizing it for heel-strikers without making it unfit for midfoot-strikers. With the Norvan LD, The only thing keeping you from finding mental clarity on the trail is that you're still sitting at the computer.

Happiness on the Trails

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently started trail running again and wanted some new shoes that offered better protection from the elements since it is wet a lot when I go out in the PNW. I also hike in trail runners normally so they tend to get a lot more overall use. These surpassed any expectations I had.
My feet were comfortable from day one. The ortholite insole really adds some great support and comfort. The toe box is roomy so my toes never get smashed down when running or hiking downhill.
Feet stay dry too!! Fully dry and I have taken these out in some storms and stepped in some puddles just to be sure.
They offer great traction on wet and rugged terrain. I haven’t found I have slipped yet and I like to climb and explore on rocks and through the bush.
Went with black for just a classic murdered out look and while I love color I love the subtle ness of the black. They look really good on too cuz part of performing well includes looking good :P

Great shoes!

Really impressed with these shoes!

It is still pretty early in the hiking season here, most of the trails are still covered in snow or wet, but I couldn't wait to take these out, so I went for a jaunt in the foothills! However, I still ran into some ice/snow and lots of mud in the drainage of the trail. The MegaGrip sole really saved me here and I didn't slip once going up or down which was really impressive. The tread on these shoes are really great and noticeable when hiking, and being made with Vibram you know they are really durable and will last for a long time.

I found the toe box on these to be wider than expected and they were very comfortable. My toes weren't swimming but were comfortable enough to not feel restricted or like I wanted to take them off as soon as I was done hiking. It feels like these shoes run a half size too big so be sure to get a half size smaller than normal. I range between 6-7 and got a 6.5 in these, and would fit bitter in 6. However, I was fine with wearing thicker socks and tying the laces tight.

While these shoes offer premium protection, they were still very comfortable and flexible. I am going to try trail running in them.

Great shoes!

These shoes are awesome! My first time buying Arcteryx shoes. Hubby and I love to travel and we walk ALOT, so we know 2 main factors are a MUST, comfort and GORETEX. These replaced some old Montrail ones that are about 15 yrs old and I still have. Wore them 2 weeks straight in Italy all day. On and off trains with 45L backpack in tow. 2 days to break them in. Very comfortable. No blisters anywhere. I did put some gel insoles just to be safe. You do have to make a double knot on the shoelaces because they come undone. Didn't get a chance to try the GORETEX feature on these, but my old Montrails had them and never had a problem. They are a little bit pricey, but investing in a quality shoe that I hope will last for many years is sooo worth it. Plus you don't have to worry about your feet on your trips just have fun. Ohh I also used them all day on a weekend trip to Philly last week, no issues.
