The look of the Norvan LD is deceptive. There isn't a lot of visual impact, but this is a
very comfortable and effective trail shoe. The upper looks very simple but the fit is very good, and the comfort matches this. You get a grippy outsole that works on a fair range of terrain, in particular harder ground and slippery surfaces, and is combined with a midsole that offers a smooth and comfortable ride.

While this isn't a lightweight shoe, there's a well cushioned midsole that comes with a 9mm heel drop. Fans of the brand will appreciate Arc'teryx's move towards more competitive running shoes.

Verdict: 8/10
Good cushioning and ride – will log plenty of miles.
