The Salewa Men's Ramble GTX Shoe is perfect for long Euro trips due to its casual style and technical features. The Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining and Gore-Tex Surround sole provide waterproof protection that's still highly breathable so you'll stay comfortable during the wet days as well as the warm ones. Perforated suede keeps this shoe fashionable and breathable, and the TPU midsole provides a lot of support for trekking through cities daily.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 11.5
I bought these shoes for backpacking across Europe for the summer. These were highly recommended to me by a friend who has previously used Salewas. I've had the shoes for three days but have worn them everyday and have to say that they are very comfortable and breathe very well. They are a little heavier than I had anticipated but the weight is due to the thick rubber siding and bottom grip. They were comfortable when I put them on three days ago and they have already begun to mold to my feet. Usually when I break in my other shoes, they are uncomfortable for the first few days because my arch is not supported but these Salewas have been comfortable since day 1.
On a personal note, I really love the style and and feel of the shoe. They are suede on the outside and the yellow really pops off of the brown for a nice looking contrast.
** Important note for first time buyers, you are going to want to buy a 1/2 size smaller than your normal shoe. I am usually a 12 in all shoes. I got an 11.5 and the Salewas fit with a little bit of room at the top.
Great pair of shoes
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Wore these shoes for about 6 months, very comfortable after a couple of wears and it's nice to have the gore-tex protection in case in rains. Would definitely recommend.
Salewa Ramble GTX Shoe - Men's
There are mixed reviews about the fit of this shoe I have found out on a few websites. When I measure my feet, it is an exact size 11, but I wear a 10.5 in Salomon X Ultra Mid GTX, Salomon XA Pro GTX is a size 11 and Merrell Moab, I wear a size 11. Should I go up/down a size or is it true to fit?
