Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I was very excited to get these boots until I actually used them on a short over night. the heel rubs when going up hill. so much so that even mole skin didn't help me out. Tried to tie them differently and contacted salewa to get their feedback. I used the insole how it came, with just one layer, with an aftermarket insole, with sock liners, with thick socks, with thin. When moving down hill, i feel like I am punishing the ground beneath me but any incline and the cable digs in the heel. I haven't given up, still trying to break my foot in, I may just cut the upper cable or just keep them for car camping.
