Fast and efficient, it's the peregrine falcon of hiking shoes.
If you're more concerned with setting personal bests than lingering to enjoy the view, then the Salewa Men's Roller Mid GTX Hiking Shoe was made for you. Built with Salewa Take-Off technology and Vibram's Rollingait System, this hiking shoe is focused on speed, efficiency, and endurance above all else.
Take-Off technology facilitates the rapid, natural rolling motion of the foot during ascents and descents thanks to a slightly raised toe position and a rockered Vibram RGS outsole. The Vibram RGS outsole's curved profile supports the foot from initial touch-down with the ground all the way through your stride and increases contact area to promote a more fluid motion and optimized efficiency. Hip and knee flexation, which usually causes discomfort during descents, is reduced to help you keep going longer.
The Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane keeps water out when you splash through puddles or get caught in a storm, yet remains highly breathable so things don't get too swampy inside your shoe. Tough suede in the upper resists abrasion for increased durability, while stretch panels keep it from feeling too rigid. Cleansport NXT antimicrobial technology prevents the buildup of odor-causing microbes so your shoe stays fresh.
