They’re okay but wouldn’t recommend for tactical shoes.

They’re good for walking and just wearing but don’t even think about running in them. They will make your calves lock up immediately. But they’re okay boots.

Boots are super comfortable and no issues there yet. I have about 50miles in them now. My main issues are with how thin the laces are which makes them annoying to tie and untie such a small knot and the eyelits kind of cut into Your ankle when making it real Tight. Also that when fully submerged I don’t quite trust the water proofing; as water rolls over the top of the boot you can feel the coolness of the water but somehow still is dry. I have not tested submerging my foot in it for more than a second at a time. Overall very good and comfortable for the value and they seem rugged so far.

As Usual Salewa Roccks!

Great boot right out of the box. Lightweight and comfortable, feels broken in after the first mile. I've depended on Salewa for work and play for a long time and have yet to be disappointed.

Excellent construction and fit

I've been wearing these at work at a tire shop where I spend the whole day standing on concrete. I am very impressed at the build quality and the support they give. Recently I took them on a short day hike and they performed as expected on Rockey terrain. I recommend these boots and they are true to size for me

Great hiking boots!

Overall these hiking boots are extremely comfortable, living up to the high standard of Salewa! They have excellent grip, and as this model should hybrid level sole flexibility/good Vibram grip. The one complaint I would lodge is that the laces are oddly extremely thin, making them at least appear flimsy. Not sure why this has changed from the thick laces on past Salewas.

Great fitting boot.

Great boot. Very comfortable. No breakin required. Only problem, the color of the boot isn’t walnut. It is gray.

Salewa boots

Perfect for my job and hiking. I would use them through the mountains of Iraq/Syria on missions but also back home in the states to hike and travel in. Perfect all around boot!

Solid boot

I haven’t worn these on long hikes. Mostly at 8-16 hour training days. Very comfortable boot out of the box with zero break in needed. Wore these during a series of intense rain, flooding and mud. No water got in and feet were dry. Tread works well in the mud. Would recommend these. They are replacing my Solomon’s and I’m not looking back.

Great boots

This is my third pair of Salewa boots. I’ve had plenty of other brands but for the comfort, durability and cost, these are my favorite.
