Salewa designed the Men's Fire Vent Shoes with lightweight, liner-free uppers to keep your feet cool and all of the technical brilliance you need to get you to the wall. They'll keep you stuck to the trail on the approach, you'll barely notice them on your harness, and then they'll see you home in shock-absorbing comfort.
The Salewa Fire Vent Men's Shoe is a super-ventilated summer version of the Salewa Firetail shoe. It can be used on the most technical trails to approach the wall. They are light enough to be easily hung from a harness while climbing and are perfect for the return thanks to a precise fit and dampening of the EVA midsole with a PU heel shock absorber. Extended climbing lacing and MFF footbed make a true customizable fit possible. Also perfect for daily use in warm climates thanks to the fully breathable unlined upper.Climbing Lacing: Adjustment to the personal needs is provided by the extended technical lacing towards the front of the shoe.
