Versatile for spring conditions.
The Salewa Men's Condor Evo GTX Mountaineering Boot handles springtime in the alpine, from ice climbs to snowy treks and rocky summits. Gore-Tex Performance Comfort includes the breathability that active endeavors call for as well as reliable waterproofing, and Vibram's Teton sole gives you the grip and performance fit for the grand mountains Vibram named it after.
Salewa's 3F System Evo uses wires on the upper to balance mobile flexibility on the trail with stability on ice routes. Salewa built the Condor Evo's upper out of strong suede leather from Perwanger, and there's a 360-degree rubber rand for rock protection. The 3D lacing system uses speed hooks to ensure a quick-and-secure fit. The stiff midsole offers hybrid crampon compatibility.

- Q & A
perfect incredible boots
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: 12
I bought these boots about a month ago and I went hiking on the ice of Michigan West coast, on its frozen sand dunes.
The boots are warm, as comfortable as a pair of tennis shoes, and very light. I bought them one size up, a 12 when I usually wear 10,5 for normal shoes and 11 for boots, and they fit perfect. I do not recommend to follow my decision as I am wearing an insole : buy them only half a size up. This is my second pair of Salewa boots and they are all professional products. I invite you to buy Galewa.
I own 2 pairs and recommend.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size

I have owned numerous pairs of top name brand mountaineering boots, these are the best ones yet.
I have hard to fit feet that don't match each other, a pair of these will fit on both feet.
Delivery was on a Wednesday, I wore them around the house and short walks with the dogs, then a 10 hour climb the following Sunday. No boot pain of any kind.
These boots grip well on most surfaces and give confidence that when you place a foot it will stay. They're comfortable when side hilling. They edge well when needed, even on steep beargrass when everyone else is slipping and falling I stay on my feet.
They're nice to hike in and climb in, I put them on when I leave home, tighten them when I start, hike and climb and am comfortable even if I wear them after the hike is over.
Bought a pair of last year's, wore a hole in the rand, (possibly burned it by a campfire) got a pair of this year's since I needed boots and Backcountry would get them to me in 2 days where resoling takes longer. I will have 2 pairs when the older ones are back from the resoling. I'm glad I'll have an extra pair just in case.
I was not sure I wanted this year's because of the colors but I got rid of those ugly orange laces and replaced the laces with black so they look better than the ones you see in the picture.
Can anyone suggest some good hybrid crampons (suitable for general mountaineering) that fit well with these particular boots?
