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.
- Durable upper and sole
- Don't hike as well as Salewa Raven
- Heavy due to leather upper
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 in the U.S. I got the Condor, the Raven with a heavier sole and leather upper. The Condor has been very durable, but the only difference is it doesn't hike as well as the Raven.
Overall a nice boot but I am using the Rapace now and think it will be a better option for long approaches.
