Why We Like The Salewa Dropline Leather Hiking Shoe

Take your pick, the Salewa Dropline Leather Hiking Shoe is either a speed hiking shoe or a casual shoe—or, better yet, both. Lighter than most Salewa shoes, the Dropline can tear up the trail without weighing us down or give us a high-performing everyday shoe to wear off the trail for work and play. The EVA midsoles provide light and comfortable cushioning for all-day comfort while the rubber rand and suede leather uppers protect our feet against rocks and other hazards they might face from the summit to the sidewalk.


  • Hybrid speed hiking and everyday shoe
  • Suede construction is comfortable and durable
  • EVA foam for a more cushioned ride
  • 3F fit system locks feet into place
  • Pomoca rubber provides great grip on the trail

Salewa Dropline Leather Hiking Shoe

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 10"

My favorite footwear ever! I wear a size 12 and have relatively narrow feet with a high arch. I have some plantar fasciitis going on, but I get all day comfort with these shoes. The tongue stays straight, they stay tied, they feel incredible. I purchased them for the trail, but I wear them everyday, and I plan to get a second pair. No sure how these would work for wide feet?

Salewa came through again!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 8"

This is my third pair of Salewa hiking shoes --after wearing out two previous pairs. This is a new model for me and I was not disappointed. The shoes are very supportive, yet comfortable. One word of warning: They are sized smaller than any shoe I owned. I normally wear size 10 and had to jump to 11 to get the proper fit.

Fantastic for me!

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

Super light, great fit. Very comfortable and fantastic price. Runs a little small, with a light cushion sock order 1/2 size up. I have a medium wide foot and didn’t need the additional insoles for a narrower tighter fit. Break in is minimal, they are leather. Laces stay put and hold the heel down well. Great for trecking and casual wear. Such a great low shoe I had to buy two pairs. Thanks Backcountry for the deal.

I returned this product before using it

I love Salewa, they work very good for my feet, which are quite low volume. However, this style is the first I have found that I do not fit me in my normal size. They are considerably smaller than my other shoes of the same size. I am returning and going to try the next size up. and hopefully they will fit for me.

Very comfortable and great traction!

These shoes run a slightly small so I had to go up from an 8.5 to a 9. The fit is perfect and shoes are very comfortable. I bought these for casual wear and would wear my hiking boots on the trail. However, I think these would be a great trail shoe.

Comfortable and Fragile

These are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I have worn. The thin rubber outsole wore out pretty quickly, though. The rest of the shoes look lightly used and yet they are done because of one critical component with a short lifespan. I walk with a fairly neutral foot placement and haven’t done anything high-wear in regards to what they designed to do. I just ordered Pedroc’s to replace as I have otherwise truly loved wearing Salewa’s.
