Here's what other sites are saying:
Extremely durable material with a full wrap-around rubber rand means great protection on a via ferrata as well as on mountaineering adventures or treks.
Hailing from a rich heritage of mountain-specific footwear, the Salewa Women's Rapace GTX Mountaineering Boot uses innovative design, a women-specific fit, and waterproof, breathable performance to give you everything you need to explore big alpine terrain. While trails are nice, oftentimes the most breathtaking sights aren't right off the trail, and will more than likely require some scrambling and off-trail travel--this is where the Rapace really shines. Its wear-resistant nubuck upper readily resists wear and tear and is reinforced with a full-wrap rubber rand to protect against abrasive granite slabs. A Gore-Tex membrane bucks moisture, while also providing a high level of breathability for those really hot days. The mid-stiff insole gives you the stable platform needed to work up exposed sections of trail safely, while the Vibram Mulaz sole is crampon compatible when you need to navigate a section of glacial ice.
