Professional guides and recreational alpinists alike tend to relentlessly pursue quality gear, but the hunt may be over with the Salewa Pro Guide Performance Fit Mountaineering Boot. Built with a Gore-Tex membrane, this tech-backed boot stays waterproof and breathable in even the nastiest environment. Salewa equipped the Pro Guide with an easy-to-use, integrated aluminum stay that quickly converts between walk and climb modes. Top-to-toe lacing helps you dial in the optimal, blister-free fit you need for comfort as well as power transfer through a crampon.
  • Salewa 'Y' distributes lace pressure and support evenly throughout the boot
  • Vibram Salewa Pro sole grips even the trickiest terrain and features when this boot is used on approach
  • Duratherm insulation traps heat to keep your toes comfortable and in communication with the rest of your body through critical footwork sequences
  • Abrasion-resistant Perwanger suede leather upper adds longevity and takes season after season of at-altitude beatings
  • Durable, grippy Vibram Salewa Pro outsole features aggressive lugs that offer a high level of grip on mud and snow when you're not stepping into a crampon, while climbing toe profile offers edging performance

Not completely thought though...

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

The mode change on certain models of this boot is a hex key. The hole in the boot gets packed easily with snow and ice. Then when you go to switch the modes it is VERY easy to ruin the hex key slot. I have done it, and I know a couple people who have done it. I ended up buying an properly sized hex key and marked on it how deep it should be to know that I had inserted it enough. I also am trying to figure out some modification or other tool to throw in my kit that lets me clean out the hex insert to make it easier. I have no idea what this is made of plastic when it is so clear that this part should be made or at least reinforced with metal.

I have a borderline D/E width foot. Will this boot work for me in terms of width. I just bought a pair of Mammut Mamook's and they are just too narrow for me.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I've used these for alpine climbing as well as ice climbing. Function and fit were excellent. My feet stayed warm and dry while providing the expected performance on ice, snow, and rock one would expect from a high end boot. Sizing will differ as this is euro sized. Go up one half size for best fit.

My understanding is that there are three lace locks on these boots and are designated by a yellow dot adjacent to the lace hook. However, on my boots the uppermost lace hook does not lock ... but it is designated by a yellow dot. Anybody else notice this? Not a major deal and I will not return them because of this, just curious.

However, I have noticed that the adjustment screw in both boots is very easy to turn, maybe too easy. Hiking for a few miles in walk mode the screw in the right boot somehow went over to the climb mode. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Needs plenty break in time

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used them on few gut bust'n hikes and so far the left boot performs as advertised in walk mode but the right boot is still really stiff. I continue to work with them on the trail and in the garage to get it lose but the right boot is very stubborn. The 9 performance is a good fit me so I hope they will come around soon. I did one hike in snow and was warm and dry. I had to insert a cushy footbed because these are stiff hard boots. I hope to get them in shape for next season ice.

Responded on

they look like they would be more suited for high altitude mixed hiking...what about for mostly low altitude 5,000-10,000ish ft? overkill?
