Go 1/2 size up

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

About the fit, I would strongly recommend going 1/2 size up, especially if you want to extend the comfort range by wearing thicker socks. They seem to be a bit narrow. I'm normally a 10.5 and bought 11, which are almost perfect. A tiny bit more width would be nice when I'm wearing my thickest socks. The two piece insole gives some customization for foot volume.

Unanswered Question

I m going to be doing 12 mile days in Montana during December and January. Is this boot up for the distance and the temp around and below 0?

How cold can these boots handle? What is the insulation rating? Thanks!

Responded on

Not sure about the insulation rating but I got them last year & they've held up great snowshoeing in the teens & 20' s & also out hunting (a lot less active) in about the same weather & my feet haven't gotten cold yet.

Solid Boots

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So right now I'm living in the Hindu Kush system and I do a fair amount of walking. That said, I have crushed mountains and ridge-lines and maneuvered ...and i guess you can say quickly scrambled in these boots.

My initial impression when I first put the shoe on was that they were snug but the length was true. They were not uncomfortable, but just a little snug, so I returned them and went with a .5 size up and they fit great. For sizing reference: A pet peeve of mine is when people post about sizing and don't list there comparable sizes. I?m 5?8? and 155lbs. I comfortably wear a 9 in Lowa Zypher (my favorite boots-until they recently changed the design), a 9.5(42.5) in Salewa Snow Trainer Insulated, and an 8R in Belleville. I do not have a "high volume" foot at all. On the contrary, I have a pretty bony foot that is very prone to the cold at the slightest whisk of a breeze.

So besides needing to return these for .5 size larger, the quality of these boots are great. I definitely like them.

One complaint though, is the advertized ?Vibram Icefriction sole provides unmatched grip on snow and ice? seems a bit gimmicky to me. I have still slipped on ice and can?t say that I notice a difference in these soles and any other sole on ice?maybe it just me though. This is the only reason the boots didn't receive 5 stars.

The Vibram rubber has held up well on the rocky terrain in the mountains. The Gore-Tex and insulation have definitely been worth there reputation, since my little feet haven?t had a cold numb toe yet.

Incredible boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

First, fit is true to size. The boots are incredibly comfortable right out of the box - no break-in required. So far I've warn them on two snow biking trips of about 1-3 hours in 0 and 7 degree weather here in Minnesota. Only had a single pair of Smartwool hiking socks and my feet never once got cold. Would highly recommend these boots for winter cycling. I debated on these vs the 45NRTH Wolvhammer boots and I think it was a good choice, especially since the Salewas will work well for hiking, cycling and snowshoeing. So far I'm extremely impressed with these boots.

Can you tell me how many grams of insulation...

Can you tell me how many grams of insulation are in these boots?

Best Answer Responded on

They have 710 grams of Duratherm insulation

Responded on

They weigh 710 grams, they don't have 710g of insulation. I haven't seen the insulation weight listed anywhere. They don't seem to be very heavily insulated.
