Yodeling has never been your thing, but you're a fan of Alps-inspired hiking boots. Lighten the load below without saying "auf wiedersehen" to your high-mountain mentality when you put on the Salewa Men's Hike Trainer GTX Hiking Boot. Despite being light on the scales, this waterproof beast of a boot supports your body whether your packing for a week in the wilderness or packing snacks for an afternoon hike. Wearing a hiking boot designed to virtually eliminate the evolution of blisters means you'll be a happy hiker at the end of your journey, be it weeks-long or a morning short. This lightweight boot crafts pliant nubuck and suede into an agile upper for easy moving over steep scree fields, hard-packed dirt paths, or technical mountain trails. The Gore-Tex Extended Dry lining guarantees your foot will neither founder from excessive sweat nor shrivel up from a misplaced footstep in mountain creek. 100% Fresh Silver neutralizes odor-causing bacteria so your boot shouldn't stink after a week on the trail, even if you are less than fresh. Using the Salewa 3F system, you get a precise fit, ankle support, and room to flex your foot without risking the wrath of blisters. The Multi-Fit footbed lets you customize the fit by simply removing or adding an (included) insole: if you've wide paws, take the yellow layer out. Otherwise, leave well enough alone. Instead of standard lacing setup, the Hike Trainer uses climbing lacing to provide an exact fit through your forefoot. Combine a well-fitting boot with the super-sticky Vibram Hike Approach sole, and your new-found scrambling ability will make the mountain goats jealous.

More comfortable and flexible than the Alp Trainer, the Salewa men's Hike Trainer GTX Approach Shoe combines the grip and technical features of an approach shoe with the supportive protection of a hiking boot. A GORE-TEX Extended Comfort membrane provides waterproof protection and enhanced breathability during your high-exertion approach while the sticky outsole and Kevlar fiber rand grip and protect once you're in the rocks. Multiple footbed options (included) and 3D climbing lacing all contribute to a fit so good Salewa backs it up with their 100% Blister Free Guarantee.
