    All-mountain boots.

    The Salewa Men's Alp Trainer Mid GTX Hiking Boots combine the lightweight comfort of hikers with the technical features of approach shoes. Their split leather upper maintains a flexible and comfortable feel when you're putting miles of rolling trails beneath them, while their 3F support system locks your heel in place when some extra rigidity is needed in exposed terrain. Climbing-style laces allow the fit of the boot to be customized, and with a Vibram approach sole between your foot and the ground, you can step with confidence when the trail turns slick.

    • 3F support system
    • Climbing-style laces

    HIGHLY AND WITHOUT RESERVATION recommend

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:Runs small

    My customer wanted me to spread the Salewa cheer, on his behalf. Here is what he has to say:

    For anybody looking to buy Salewa boots, I have always had to go a size up because of the European cut, but they always fit perfect by doing so. I have the last generation Alp Trainer GTX that served me extremely well in Afghanistan through winter and summer, in some of the most unforgiving terrain imaginable.. I would HIGHLY AND WITHOUT RESERVATION recommend Salewa boots/shoes to anybody that is serious about a supportive, comfortable, and hard use boot. I just ordered a replacement pair, today. Thanks for the customer support and keeping great products in stock and fast delivery times.

    fantastic boots

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    I'm not much of a boot guy. Always grabbing my trail shoes before boots, however these are quickly making me a believer. They are very comfortable and supportive. For me they also provide just enough insulation for summer/fall use on cold alpine routes in the Tetons and winter trails around the Wasatch. The sole is super grippy in all conditions, and the sole is just stiff enough that I wouldn't hesitate to throw on some light strap on crampons.

    I think these run true to size if not a touch on the small side. If you have wider feet I would probably size up.

    Awesome Quality, Awesome Comfort!

    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    Bought a pair of these years ago in Austria which I out grew, but I
    put them through the ringer and they held up perfectly. They are now in the hands of my brother who still uses them. But these are awesome boots! They fit really well and are the most comfortable pair of any type of shoe/boot that I own. Have yet to do any proper hiking in these. But I know they will exceed my expectations! Highly recommended. Only part I was sad about is that I got no Goat sticker. Being from Canada almost no items are allowed to ship here anymore, so that made me sad. And sticker requests internationally are not being worked on hahahaha I've shopped here for 3 years and its always said that.

    Great boots

    • Size Bought: 11

    Didnt have time for break in, climbed 2 days in Utah Wasatch, 7 hours each. The boots were comfortable, no blisters, very good support but flexible enough for large rock stability. Held up well in a lot of loose rocks and messy terrane.

    I agree with all of James' opinions. I have never been so pleased, and so confident, with new hiking boots. In the rocky terrain of Mt. Washington (New Hampshire) and nearby hikes, I felt like I had some magic in my feet wearing these boots -- the traction and control are that good, including in the wet. (I'm 5'10", 170, size 10).

    Are these shoes good for winter hiking? Is there any insulation?

    These will work for winter, for some active people. However, they are not insulated, specifically for the winter cold. Something like Merrell's Polarand boot, would be better, as it is very insulated, for winter use. So, if you really need a lot of warmth, go that route.
