Precise, grippy, comfortable, and tough.
Salewa's Firetail 3 Women's Approach Shoe is the latest offering in a long line of genre-blurring footwear, and this scree-conquering, rock-crushing, trail-smoking legend is just getting better with age. True to the Firetail's approach-first heritage, it comes with to-the-toe climbing-style lacing for a secure and precise fit when you're toeing in on tricky fifth-class pitches and a super-sticky Vibram Reptail sole with MegaGrip rubber that's optimized for traction on rocky terrain.
The Firetail loves steep rock, but it's also plenty capable on loose dirt and slippery roots. Salewa's famous 3F flexible fit system connects the heel, laces, and sole to provide unparalleled support without limiting mobility, and the EXA shell boosts stability, improves balance, and protects the breathable mesh upper. Better still, the Multi Fit footbed lets you adjust the volume of the shoe to perfectly adapt to the shape of your foot.

- Q & A
These shoes have changed my. Life
After my knee replacement I was constantly placing my foot to short to hold me on the stair on the curb but with this shoe my falling and lack of sure footing has ended. They were great for traveling, hiking and living in. I recommend this shoe for anyone over sixty that still wants to hike bike and travel the world sure footed.
Running true to size, or are they running long?
