Professional guides and recreational alpinists alike tend to relentlessly pursue quality gear, but the hunt may be over with the Salewa Pro Guide Performance Fit Mountaineering Boot. Built with a Gore-Tex membrane, this tech-backed boot stays waterproof and breathable in even the nastiest environment. Salewa equipped the Pro Guide with an easy-to-use, integrated aluminum stay that quickly converts between walk and climb modes. Top-to-toe lacing helps you dial in the optimal, blister-free fit you need for comfort as well as power transfer through a crampon.
Get ready to rethink what boots can do. The Pro Guide from Salewa is built for life on the mountain with an anatomical shape and an incredible, adjustable sole. By turning a dial in the heel of the sole, the boot can go from being a flexible approach shoe to a completely rigid ice climbing monster. Weighing only 2.4 pounds, these boots sacrifice nothing in durability with Vibram rubber soles, a full rubber rand, 3mm Perwanger suede, and a GORE-TEX lining. Available in a wide width if your feet need the room or if you want to add an extra, insulating layer in colder conditions.
