    Details

    For flowing in the alpine.

    The Salewa Women's Alp Flow Mid GTX Hiking Boot boasts the most innovative features found in boots. Gore-Tex's Surround midsole offers waterproofing superior to the competition, with a laminate that wraps around the entire boot. Unlike most waterproof boots, Gore-Tex Surround includes a specially-perforated footbed to provide true breathability underfoot, resulting in an entirely comfortable hike whether you're trekking in hot, muggy weather or cold, wet weather. Salewa paired Gore-Tex's Surround with Gore-Tex's Extended Comfort for even more waterproof breathable protection.

    The Alp Flow also features Salewa's 3F System Evo for a surprising amount of flexibility and mobility in a supportive mid-cuff boot. Ballistic mesh makes the upper very breathable and durable, and Salewa added nubuck leather reinforcements and a 360-degree rubber rand for rock protection. Climbing-style laces give a snug fit from toe to foot. Vibram's Hike Apparoach sole gives the grip, flex, and durability that's ideal for the most demanding excursions.

    That Gore-Tex, though...

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I used my Salewas for a week long hiking trip in Norway in early June. I subjected my boots to lots of knee deep post holing in snow fields, creek crossings, boulder scrambling, 14+ mile days, and up to 3,000 feet of elevation gains/losses on some hikes. Here is a bulletized list of pros and cons on the boots since no one likes reading a novel for a review:

    PROS:
    -Dear, sweet, baby Jesus... The Gore-Tex surround footbed was amazing. My feet sweat profusely when I hike, and the perforated footbed made the shoes incredibly breathable, so my feet stayed cool and did not reach prune consistency by the end of my hikes.
    -Gore-Tex Surround struck again with keeping unpleasantly cold substances such as glacial runoff and snow from seeping into my boots (except for that one time I tripped and submerged my whole leg in the water... That one was my bad).
    -Technical approach sole was very grippy, and I always felt sure-footed on slab.
    -Good cushion and support, and plenty of room in the toe box (I did go up half a size from my normal shoe size since my feet tend to swell).

    CON(S):

    -Especially when trudging uphill, the backs of the boots dug into my heels, and I ended up with some bad blisters. I adjusted my laces several times to see if maybe I just had them tied too loosely, but it did not help.
