    Tremendous winter boots

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    I took these boots out of the box, put on a pair of darn tough cushioned socks and took em out for a hike. They were super comfortable and fit me perfectly with the narrow foot option (they have adjustable insoles). I initially thought the built in gaiter was a bit understated and couldn't see how it would do much good but they are perfect for keeping snow out of your boot tops when snow shoeing or when your relegated to plunge stepping or post holing.
    My first real trip with them was up the Colchuck Lake trail in light snow, compact snow, and ice. I found they were as good or better than any boot I own with respect to traction. I then donned a pair of New-Matic Grivel Air Tech light crampons for the climb up Colchuck Glacier and Colchuck peak. Initially I had a bit of a problem getting the cam locks to adjust and hold the crampon onto the boot but finally got them dialed in. Since that time I've always used the strap on crampons when wearing this boot; I do not recommend the cam lock crampons even though there is a snow shoe holder on the heel of the boot.
    I've since logged a lot of miles in all sorts of hiking conditions having climbed up Asgard pass in snow, and a host of other hikes in winter conditions. I've always found them to be warm enough for my purposes in temperatures down to about zero degrees.
    I think, but I'm not certain that the extra grip for snow/ice is supposed to be a result of the twelve round circles on the soles that have some sort of furry substance in them. I wasn't sure they'd last but the soles now have significant wear and those little circles are still there and still seem to be working well. Another feature that I like is thesharp edge on the heel block that actually faces forward side at greater than 90 degrees; these really dig in for slowing down on snow, and compacted snow in the downhill portions of your hike.
    One thing I do NOT like is the suede finish on the top and sides of the boots. Out of the box they are very water resistant; over time, not so much. I've used a number of different waterproofing spays for suede type leather but they still soak up water like a sponge. Once wet in the field they tend not to dry. I finally gave up and now use a wax based water proofing material (Nikwax waterproofing wax) to solve that problem.
    Bottom line: I like these boots so much that I paid full retail for a second pair to keep in reserve when i thought that Salewa had discontinued them. I'm glad to see they're back.

    Really Nice Boots!

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

    Having worn these only a few times I've got a few initial impressions. Great fit, love the built in gaitor, and so far they've kept my feet warm down to the single digits. After some digging I found out these are rated down to 14°F, since I've had them colder I'm confident that combined with a good sock will serve me very well. They seem to have a thicker overall foot bed than the Garmont boots they're replacing, which I think will come in handy when I'm standing around on snow in zero degree weather photographing. Then again, I run hot. So others may not feel as comfortable wearing them below their rated temp. Added bonus, the two piece foot bed insert will allow me to fit them while wearing thicker or extra socks if needed.



    As for fit, I normally wear a 12, but opted for a 13 to accommodate the thickest sock combination I may choose to go with.

    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.

    Solid Boots

    • 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.

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

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