Have had these boots all summer, and have loved every mile I have hiked in them. The boot is very forgiving when it comes to lacing up, giving you the ability to loosen and tighten up where you might need depending on your feet that day, letting you expand to accommodate swelling on long hikes. Longest single day hike I have done with this was right at 16 miles, up 2 mountainsides, not a single issue with my feet the next day, no blisters, feet have recovered almost entirely! My favorite feature is the support on the heel, giving you that extra leverage for incline hikes. Backpacker magazine recommended these to me and did not miss the mark. Fantastic boots.

Great boots!

These boots were comfortable right out of the box. I wore them all over the National Park near my home and hiked various trails. I found them supportive, waterproof, light and great for power hiking too. I had a older pair of Salewa’s that were smaller in the toe box , but these offer more room. Finally, I feel that these would do well on some shorter backpacking trips. I would recommend there to anyone looking for a great boot!

I've only had the Salewa Mountain Trainer Lite for a few weeks. Compared to most mid-level priced boots, the Mountain Trainer is a forerunner. The boots have more ankle and lateral support than most MID height Salomon boots. The Salewa Mountain Trainer definitely are lighter and breathable then many other Gore-Tex boots I have tried. Sizing was almost spot on for my foot at 9.5 mens, my foot did slide a tid bit, but with a thicker insert that solved the problem and gave me more cushion, which I was looking for in a Summer style non-leather boot, but still Gore-Tex. These will be widely used on the AT this summer and fall, along with many short day hikes. The Mountain Trainer seemed to be well built with quality materials, as Salewa has seemed to hold to the test. I like the added toe protection for rocks scuffs, etc... My only complaint so far is the laces. I would like to see Salewa beef up the thickness of the laces, at least 1mm or 2mm to add some girth to the size of the laces. This would help the boot feel more true and snug, along with stabilizing the foot. More colors please.....

Have done a few hikes in the Smokey's with them, coming from several pairs of La Sportiva Trango GTX's which I've put through the wringer on many multi-day treks over the years. These are a bit lighter and have more room in the toe box. My feet were not as tired at the end of the day. First day I wore them the heavens opened up mid way through, my feet got wet. I was wearing shorts so I think it was from water running down my legs. Rained the second day I wore them, had rain pants on. My feet stayed dry so I do think they are truly waterproof but need some more time in them. Hence the 4 stars. The insole is a joke - as are most. Very comfortable with a pair of Superfeet inserts.
