Why We Like The Wildfire Hiking Shoe

For long slogs to the crag in mid-summer’s heat, we slip into the Wildfire 2 Hiking Shoe because their featherweight feel keeps us moving, and the breathable design keeps us feeling fresh. The 360° rubber rand is paired with a POMOCA rubber sole for optimal scrambling traction, and the mesh upper is fully recycled for a more climate-neutral construction.


  • Approach shoes suited for warm weather treks to the wall
  • Mesh lining provides optimal ventilation for long, technical miles
  • POMOCA outsole offers extra stick for tricky scrambles
  • EVA foam midsole offers consistent rebound with every step
  • Switchfit system makes it easy to tighten laces on the fly for scrambling

Fantastic approach shoes

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

My go to shoes for the crag. Great traction and surprising ankle support for a sneaker. The toebox is tight, and the toe tread is good enough for 5.9 if you're confident. Great shoes for doing leads on moderates to setup top-ropes for beginners. Good breathability, feet dried out between multiple creek crossings when wearing synthetic wool blend socks. Since the shoes are stiff comfort on trails is not comparable to softer less precise hiking shoes, there are better options for trail hikers but if you do any amount of scrambling get these! Quality is good enough I will be picking up some Salewa boots once my Solomon Ultra 3s wear out

From Unfamiliarity to Two Pairs

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
5' 11"

Away on vacation, realized I had forgotten my light hiking/approach shoes. Salewa was the only brand the local place had in my size; so I bought a pair out of necessity. Wowzers! They fit great, tracked perfectly, provide the best support I've experienced and have a terrific undersole. I liked them so much that when I saw a pair of the waterproof model on sale in my size, I grabbed them too. I don't think much of the innersoles that come with most shoes; but the Salewa innersoles actually perform better than the Superfeet Carbon/Runners I tried. The "tighter" grommet from around the heel actually WORKS to increase support and prevent your socks from shimmying down into the heel cup. Frankly, I would not get any other brand after enjoying the quality and performance of these shoes.

Great shoe, holds up better

I have had 3 different pairs of Wildfire approach shoes, these one have held up the best. I have done over 100 miles this season with a fairly heavy pack on (they show a little wear) As far as performance, they climb very well. They are lighter than previous versions and fairly cold. I prefer the leather Wildfire, I don't think you can get it anymore. I would buy these again

Great approach shoes. Lightweight and comfortable. These are my second pair and I will continue to buy these shoes as they wear out for the foreseeable future.

Great fit

The men’s wildfyre 2 fit well out of the box or with included sizers. I use the shoe for light alpine approach and also in the gym. The platform is stable on them and lends itself to a functional fitness style application, or even short warmup runs are no problem.

Fit like a glove

This is my second pair. Great for bumming around town, hiking, even working out. Solid construction and built with materials that last. Tread is trustworthy even on slippery surfaces. Insoles are modular to give you options before needing to buy third party insoles. Beginner/expert...doesn't matter, they'll work for you.

Very comfortable

My only complaint is the canvas material causes my feet to sweat

Not comfortable

Uncomfortable and not breathable, soles are rock magnets.

Love the brand … not this shoe - it!s just ok.

I ordered the shoes for a travel adventure … I wish I had returned them, but loving the brand I threw the box away & just carried on. Regardless of insert, they just don’t fit right … I posit there a few more sets of eyelets would have solved the problem. Also, the laces keep popping out of their plastic hooks when tightened - extremely annoying having to completely UNLACE to reinsert into those stupid hooks.
