Whether it’s a crisp method, a fresh pow slash, or a creative line through the trees, the best riding comes from the soul. United by this belief, DEELUXE and AREth have teamed up to create the AREth Rin. Armed with a classic appearance, it pairs clean design with rich materials and sophisticated technology. And thanks to its ability to ride any terrain, it’s Kazu Kokubo’s boot of choice. Combining the best of both worlds, its traditional laces offer a timeless look and familiar feel while the boot’s BOA® Fit System allows you to quickly and effortlessly secure your ankle and heel. The boot’s Stage 3 liner provides a truly custom fit while its Remedy sole offers exceptional traction and cushioning. Inspired by the boot’s refined design and impressive performance, Japan’s Freerun magazine honored the AREth Rin as one of the top picks in the freeride category of its 2021-2022 Best Gear Awards. If your riding comes from within, consider the AREth Rin your soulmate.
Since 2001, AREth has quietly forged its own path in Japan—and beyond. Guided by a deep commitment to clean design, the brand has earned a reputation for crafting footwear that’s as authentic as it is original. And with a down-to-earth approach, AREth inspires others to live bravely and creatively.
Stage 3 Liner - For enhanced comfort, the liner features a roomier toe box with a four-way-stretch material that can be thermomolded with or without toe caps. And to further boost performance, the liner’s external heel harness cradles your foot to provide exceptional heelhold and quick and secure lacing.
Traditional Lacing - Provides a classic look and feel.
BOA® - Dial in to a fast, effortless, precision fit with the BOA® Fit System, which delivers more explosive action and unparalleled accuracy. Boots with a dual zone BOA® configuration provide zonal adjustability so you can create a truly customized fit for even longer days on the hill. The BOA® Fit System is engineered with high quality, durable materials and rigorously field tested—guaranteed to perform under the toughest conditions.
Power Strap - This strap provides extra support for your shin to enhance your boot’s response.
Free Flex - Thanks to forefoot and shaft panels that overlap near the heel of the shell, this construction creates a supportive, surf-like flex.
Rockguard - This layer of rubber wraps around the toe box and sides of the boot, maximizing durability by providing protection from rocks and ice.
Remedy Sole - The Remedy sole provides the perfect blend of traction and cushioning. It offers exceptional grip while hiking and when it’s time to send it, the sole’s free-floating heel cushion ensures smooth landings. And thanks to a reduced footprint, it minimizes toe and heel drag.
