Mountain Trainer GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I am a seasoned boot user, but after reading a number of opinion blogs I thought I would try a hiking shoe. The Salewa Mountain Trainer has turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. While not as comfortable on my foot as my Aslo boots are, they have proven to be a very solid shoe and I really appreciate the lighter footwear compared to my boots. The shoe fits great. While it did require a good deal of time to break in, the shoe is relatively comfortable now. I have about 100 miles on the shoes… Full review

Rapace GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, good fit, should be a sturdy backpacking boot that also climbs well. I just purchased these and have yet to put them through a full season. I was seeking a backpacking boot with a firm but not rigid sole that will walk and handle long approaches well, and that will also take crampons and climb and handle off trail work well. I expect these to be a lighter and more comfortable alternative to a pair of old leather Garmonts that had fit the bill for many years, but that needed to be retired. Full review

Alp Trainer Mid GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Maximum support in a lightweight but sturdy package! The Ozarks are a rocky place.  An up and down place.  A hot and humid place. The Alp Trainer Mid GTX by Salewa handles all this well. Despite the "no break in" guarantee, I did wear them around the house for several days to make sure fit was good before putting a pack on the trail. The most surprising thing about Salewa is that their shoes and boots have an insole that is adjustable. This is accomplished by having a 2-piece insole that uses… Full review

Condor EVO

rated 3.5 of 5 stars I had the Salewa Raven which had some durability issues. Got rid of them and got these for the beefy sole and leather upper. These are much more durable, but they are not as easy to hike in. The fit on these is the same as all Salewa. Medium foot volume and width. I wear a 12 in Salewa shoes and I can go either 12 or 13 in these. 12 feels short while going downhill, 13 feels a little roomy. Wish a 12.5 were available. I had the Salewa Raven but had issues with durability. Once they became available… Full review

Raven Combi GTX

rated 4 of 5 stars I have used this boot in summer 2012. The rocker was not to my liking and I wore completely through the rubber on the toe (just my stride). Since then I have tried many other lightweight boots (Salewa Condor, Asolo Titan, La Sportiva Glacier), and none have been as good. I used this boot all of summer 2012 to climb in Germany, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, and the UK. I planned to do more technical stuff than I did, but since I only brought one pair of boots I did some very long hikes in these. For… Full review
