Mountain Trainer GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Superb updated lightweight hiker from Salewa. Comfortable out of the box, little break-in required. Many adjustment options to fashion a perfect fit. This is the new updated 2015 Mountain Trainer Mid GTX from Salewa. Nice looking and distinctive. Color is brown nubuk with silver, yellow and red sole trim. The "to-the-toe"  lacing system is a plus not usually found in a regular hiking boots and allows you to dial in a perfect surround fit. There are two sets of double layer insoles (the extra set… Full review

Alp Trainer Mid GTX

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Comfortable. I wear a 13 wide in most boots and these 13 mediums are snug, but comfy. I put about 5 miles on them the first day out and it rained. My feet stayed dry through small puddles and the soles held traction on wet rocks. I like the boots. I'd like them better if they were made in Italy, not Vietnam. True to size. Comfortable. It hasn't been really hot, but supposedly these boots will keep my feet cool. We'll see. Have done 5 mile walks in them on all kinds of terrain and they work fine… Full review

Wildfire Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars The Salewa Wildfire Pro is, as its name implies, an approach shoe. As such it bridges the gap between a hiking shoe and a climbing shoe. This shoe is the latest iteration of the Wildfire and it truly does hike like a hiking shoe and climb like a climbing shoe. This shoe is designed to go climbing when you get into an area where you need to go scrambling. It will take you from the parking lot to the summit. Salewa nailed it on this shoe! Recommended Use:  Salewa recommends the Wildfire Pro for use… Full review

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
