Jason Taylorwrote a review of Salewa Mountain Trainer Mid GTX Backpacking Boot - Men's on December 7, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small
These boots can take you to the mountain, and then drive on for the summit bid. Backcountry never had my size in these, 48.5/14. I had to actually go to Germany to buy these. Ok, maybe I was in Germany already, and bought them, but anyway it's good to see Backcountry have the a full range of sizes in these, though maybe not mine. I wear 13s in normal shoes, but I had these fitted at an outfitter in Germany, and add in a good hiking sock and I need that extra room. . So far I haven't put these through the wringer or anything, but the few hikes I've been on they inspire confidence in tackling terrain, while being a comfortable boot.
