Why We Like The Alp Mate Winter Mid WP Hiking Boot

When the weather gets cold but we don't want to stop hiking and backpacking, we slip into our Salewa Alp Mate Winter Hiking Boots and hit the trail. The Alp Mate offers strong support and weather resistance with mid-cut ankle collars, sturdy soles, and a waterproof-breathable membrane to keep our feet warm and dry. The winter version adds a wool lining to insulate our feet against the snow and slush, along with Pomoca rubber outsoles with specialized rubber and lugs made for winter traction.

Incredible comfortable protection

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this shoe for my 12 years old son. He appreciates the softness and flexibility of the shoe when hiking and playing in the mountains, and I feel confident that he is well protected from getting wet and getting cold. Furthermore I could experience that the shoe is offering a great grip on different rocky and snowy terrains.

Great (almost) waterproof winter boot

I really like the Alp Mate Winter Mid. It’s quite warm even though the boot material is barely thicker than a regular boot. Even though it’s not a mountaineering boot it was still robust enough to kick steps. And it is very, very comfortable. It’s now my boot of choice for snowshoeing and winter hiking. Even without spikes (mini crampons) it has a pretty good grip on ice, although of course spikes are preferred. My only quibble is what other reviewers have said: It’s not 100% waterproof. After a long day of snowshoeing and kicking some steps, my feet were blister free, but my socks were damp (not from sweat). I wore gaiters so I’m confident no snow got in over the tops of the boots. I never stepped in any puddles, just snow. I did apply more waterproofing to the outside after this trip and hopefully that will help some. The other aspects of the boot are so exceptional that I’m keeping them,
