Brianwrote a review of Salewa Firetail 3 Approach Shoe - Men's on January 9, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I had heard about Salewa quality so when I saw these shoes on sale, I bought them. My wife and I hike and scramble around the foothills and mountains of Colorado and there is no other shoe more capable than these. After our first hike, I went and bought my wife a pair as well. The weird thing about these shoes- we find ourselves talking about them... which is weird. My wife or I will most probably never buy another brand of hiking shoe. I've beat the hell out of these shoes, including hiking to the top of Loveland resort in the spring with a backpack water and all of my snowboard gear on it through rocky fields, streams and snow fields to the top of Torrey's and everywhere in between. It is worth noting that I "post holed" into hip deep snow with these shoes on a long hike and WALKED THEM DRY. I have never experienced hiking in a shoe (and a good pair of wool socks) that was completely submerged in water in wet and rugged conditions and walked them dry. I couldn't be more happy with these shoes.
