Jared B.wrote a review of Salewa Hike Trainer GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on October 16, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I've had these boots for a few months now, they hike, scramble, and do everything so far quite well. My one major issue was a thick seam that runs over the outside ankle bone, on the left foot it didn't bother me, but my right ankle bone would start hurting after a few miles. After several hikes, I finally just cut out about an inch of the seam that hit my ankle bone, and the boots have been great since then. I'm sure eventually that spot will wear out more quickly, but it just seems like a poor design choice to have a thick seam in that particular spot. If it wasn't for that issue, these would easily be upwards of 5 stars. The two-piece insole also was quite helpful getting a more tuned fit.
