Wildfire GTX Hiking Shoe

Wildfires can stay stagnant until a wind pull them faster than fire crews can control. Similarly, you'll appreciate the alpine lake you hiked to for hours, and then move down the mountain fast in the Salewa Men's Wildfire GTX Hiking Shoe. This technical hiker creates a comfortable atmosphere for your foot when you're trekking over rocky scrambles, ridge traverses, and difficult terrain. Its Gore-Tex Extended Comfort provides reliable waterproofing that's still incredibly comfortable to wear in warm temperatures, and the Pomoca Butylic compound rubber sole has a climbing zone to give the traction necessary whether you're jumping between stones in the lake or retreating back to the car during a surprise rainstorm.


  • Technical hiking shoe keeps comfy on approaches and traverses
  • Gore-Tex Extended Comfort is waterproof and very breathable
  • Mesh upper with Exa Shell and 3F for firm ankle and heel support
  • Ortholite footbed wicks moisture and cushions underfoot
  • Pomoca Butylic compound rubber gives grip on both wet and dry rock
  • Runs small, so we recommend sizing up for ideal fit
  • Item #SFW0077

Wildfires are PERFECT!!!

Salewa Wildfires are a PERFECT shoe. So what did Salewa do? They ruined them with the Wildfire 2. The Wildfires were the perfect combination of fit, form, and function. I have three pairs: one for every day, one for hiking and approaches, and a pair in black that I work in. I am SO UPSET that Salewa felt the need to change everything good about these shoes. I actually bought three more new pairs before they're all gone. You should do the same.

Happy Feet

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 11"

I have had these shoes for 4 days and have about 15 miles on them. I am a true size 11 (vans, nike, new balance for reference) and I ordered these in 11.5. Even though I ordered 1/2 size up they fit snug. I have narrow feet and these fit perfect. So if you have wide feet or like wearing thicker socks while hiking, these are not for you. These are very comfy, I like the way the laces allow you to have a custom fit throughout the entire shoe. Waterproofing is legit! The grip is great! I am super happy with these, but buyer be where! Order 1/2 size to one full size up! I was half thinking of returning these for another 1/2 size up, but I am happy with the fit.

Maybe the best shoes I?ve ever owned.

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:
6' 4"

I?ve had a pair of these for four years. Bought them on sales at a small mountain shop. As a class V whitewater guide, I use these as my exclusive on the river shoe. They?re stiff enough to hop across rocks, grippy enough on the slick surfaces, and protective for the toes. I?m back looking for another pair even as mine have many miles left because I don?t want to miss them if they stop making them. Unlike many shoes, they?ve not broken down after repeated water use and totally soaking. (Many shoes simply fall apart.) These are superb approach, scrambling, rock hopping, river shoes.

Very happy with the purchase

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 6"

I was trying to find some nice waterproof hiking shoes to use in the summer and fall. I hadn't heard of this brand but the reviews looked promising. I rarely venture away from brands that I don't already own shoes from, but I decided it was worth trying. I have been very satisfied. Even with the cost being a bit more than I usually pay for athletic (for lack of a better word) shoes, I feel I got a tremendous value. Initially, I felt like they were stiffer than I liked. But after wearing them a couple of times, they are perfectly broken in. I also had the opportunity to wear them in heavy rain and they performed flawlessly. The main things that made these shoes stand out to me were the thoughtfulness of the design and the clear quality of the product. I also really like the way to soles have great traction, unlike my other hiking shoes. I feel like you could tackle just about anything in them. And they are very comfortable. It almost feels like they were made for my foot. I don't have very wide feet, so that might be something to think about if you do, but it is worth trying even then, since the return policy is so good.

Salewa Wildfire gtx

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
10 1/2
6' 1"

This is my second pair of the wildfire gtx within a very short time... not due to anything bad but due to the fact they are a amazing shoe and I bought a second pair to wear for work and to get dirty and not worry about it too much !!! Some were saying to go a size up but if you want a nice tight secure feel which this type of shoe should be ...go with your normal size I?m a size 10 1/2 and I went with a size 10 1/2 fits my foot perfectly like it was custom-made for my foot. So a good shoe on top of a very good company backcountry Is definitely my go to source for outdoor gear and apparel fast shipping super friendly customer service what more do you want out of a company

Sticky Comfort!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 7"

Love these shoes! Been a Solomon wearer for awhile but I have to give it to the Salewa sole for being an excellent grip. I haven't tried it on wet rock yet, but I have a feeling they will do awesome! And the fit and comfort of the shoe is excellent; I have found a new brand to add into the rotation!
