User Review: Salewa Men's Alp Trainer Mid GTX
Price Paid: $179
Despite some early reservations about the fit of this boot (found toe space fine, midfoot quite narrow), I took it on a rugged Catskills hike yesterday despite minimal break-in. I wanted to test the "Blister Free" promise, and must say i found them to be generally comfortable.
Once the grips were scruffed up and not as slippery, I found the running watery trails, slippery leaves, deep mud and loose rocks were no match for the Alp Trainer. The reinforced heel area stopped many an ankle roll, that i had experienced from other, lesser boots.
Let's see how they hold up over the next few months! More to follow.
