My favorite boots.

First Salewa product, and I am actually really happy with then. Will be purchasing more Salewa gear, like a down jacket and some pants soon.

Great hiking boot

Great fit and very comfortable. Minimal break-in period and sizing is right on point. Lightweight enough for long hikes and the sole is great for aggressive terrain. I got these for a hiking trip in Alaska and they did not disappoint. These were great on everything from hard-pack and dusty trails to loose rock, ice, snow, and water. I would recommend these to anyone.

I have and wear alot of hiking boots for work, casual and outdoor activities. Wore these for 9 hours today and my feet and ankles felt totally secure on multiple surfaces. Definitely recommend for active people. I would definitely say these aren't for everyone and are stiff so if you are going to be wearing something on rough terrain these are the boots.

Wore to Badlands

Wore these hiking around the Badlands National Park and they were amazing. Phenomenal grip, immediately comfortable. Always a Salewa fan

Good features

This is my fourth pair. They are a good value overall, I especially like the heel drop. It helps prevent reoccurring tendinitis in my achilles. My only complaint is durability. I only get about 200 mile per pair before the sole integrity and mesh breakdown.

Solid boot, great for inclement weather. They have a short lived break in life. Always been comfortable, even through the break in period. Be sure to know your boot size and have a plan for sizing into this boot. It’s doubtful that you will go back to another brand. This is an all around boot from beginner to experienced. The support and stability are unrivaled for this class of boot. Will buy again.

Great boot, one tiny opinion.

Solid Overall boot have had the low top version for years and went on man missions with them. my only complaint about the mid version is that they have a tenancy to make you very very hot which is the opposite of the advertisement. Still a great boot and I'm going on a year of gun drills and they're holdin up.

Great mid-weight boot

I like this boot because it fits me and works extremely well for its intended purpose. I use this boot for mountain trekking, hunting, and backpacking up to about 40 lbs. It’s flexibility and sole make it great for scrambling and general trail and off-route use. I would use a stiffer boot for side-hilling or when carrying heavier loads. Locking lace eyelets let me keep my forefoot loose and tighten up around the ankle - a must-have feature for me. One gripe: the outboard lowest eyelet snags on things.
