The road to backcountry climbs is paved with large rocks and characterized by steep ascents and descents; the Salewa Women's Wildfire Hiking Shoe is ready to take it on. The Wildfire gives you a close, sensitive fit with its narrower, women-specific anatomical last and the Exa Shell system that includes the 3F heel retention, Power Grid forefoot support, and Hexagonal Support Rand, all welded directly onto the ballistic mesh upper. Combine this with a durable but tenacious sticky rubber Vibram outsole and a flexible forefoot, and you're ready to tackle a wide range of terrain from a rocky approach to the crag, to the navigation of a large scree field in front of your trad route, to a day of boulder-hopping by the river.

  • Anatomical last with a spherical heel conforms to your foot, supports your arch, and creates a blister-free fit
  • Ballistic mesh upper with padded microfiber tongue is breathable and highly durable
  • 3F System wraps around your instep and heel to offer unmatched heel retention so you enjoy a friction-free, blister-free precision fit as well as excellent ankle support
  • Power Grid exoskeletal support in forefoot offers two-way load transmission for optimal forefoot balance and support
  • Multi-Fit Footbed+ technology enables you to adjust the internal fit by switching the footbed, offering narrow and medium feet a custom feel
  • EVA midsole and PU Shock Absorber cushion your foot on descents
  • Hexagonal support rand protects the shoe from impact and abrasion and provides grip
  • Microfiber and rubber toe bumper adds protection
  • Silverized antimicrobial treatment inhibits the accumulation of odors
  • Climbing-style lacing extends further towards the front to allow you to dial in your fit
  • Proprietary Salewa Vibram Approach Evo outsole provides maximum grip and edging on rocks and helps you put on the brakes on steep descents

Better than expected!

  • Fit:True to size

I bought these shoes as a general hiking/camping shoe. I wore them to work a few times to break them in, and ended up wearing them for work permanently. I loved them so much, that I bought a second pair! Being on my feet 12+ hours a day, up and down ladders and walking on average 13k steps In a single shift, these shoes have been put to the test. They give you great grip and control, as well as incredible support from heel to toe. I would recommend these for anyone who needs an everyday hiking shoe, or anyone who needs a solid pair of work shoes. They come with two insole options, one for wide feet and one for narrow. This really helped my feet set in correctly. Salewa makes an amazing shoe!!!!

excellent women's approach shoe

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:Runs large

I'm writing this shoe for my wife. I've owned the male version of the shoe for two years. I've just replaced the original with a new shoe after two long seasons of abuse. Prior shoes have never lasted me more than 1 season. That said, my wife loves the shoe. It is a little narrow, but that is to be expected for a shoe that is made for approaching climbs and with sticky rubber. They do not roll on the foot when pressed into edges. They stick well and offer great support. It is worth noting however that their sizing scheme differs from many companies. Their EU sizing is one 1/2 size less relative to US sizing than many manufacturers. My wife for example normally wears an EU 36 and size US 6. In this shoe US size 6 is EU 36.5. The shoes run a little large as a result.

Versatile and Progressive

Unlike the review below, I found these shoes to be pretty average on width. I have a wider foot for a woman and sure, they were a little snug at first but pretty typical of most shoes. They stretched out in no time and I'd say they're comparable to a Vasque or Patagonia fit in terms of width. Narrower than a Keen for sure though. They're rugged, stick well, I like being able to take out the extra material in the footbed for a custom fit, and they're beautifully made. I'd definitely recommend these to someone looking for a more minimalist, aggressive hiking shoe.

Very narrow shoe.

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I have narrow AA width feet and this shoe is too narrow, particularly across the ball of my foot. These shoes feel best when I'm taking them off. Too bad because they are so stylish!
