Some samples of our footwear stock:
Salewa Rapace GTX
Is a lightweight mountaineering boot that features a very hard-wearing nubuck and fabric upper with waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® protection.
Secure grip meets comfort and support – SALEWA’s solution for via-ferratas mountaineering. The Rapace GTX features our 3F System for ankle support, flexibility and a perfect fit, and an improved rear ankle mobility thanks to the patented Flex Collar. Its Vibram WTC outsole has an aggressive tread pattern that gives good grip, yet provides a natural feel and secure grip on rock, and it's coupled with the Bi-light TPU midsole providing a long-lasting cushion compared to the traditional sole packs.
Inside the boot, SALEWA’s Bilight technology in the midsole ensures an ergonomic hold and long-lasting cushioning for extended comfort. The Rapace GTX is also stiff enough for use with semi-automatic crampons. In addition, the GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort lining delivers optimized climate comfort should the weather close in on you and there’s a full rubber rand for protection against rock and scree.
Dynafit Alpine Pro Trail-Running Shoe
This 300-gram light Alpine Pro shoe promises trail runners comfort, versatility and protection for middle and long distance runners. The "Alpine Rolling" midsole construction of this especially lightweight shoe has a double compression-moulded EVA midsole that increases running dynamics and comfort. It also provides a very noticeable evenly smooth roll-through from heel to toe. A drop of 8mm guarantees good support on middle- and long-distance runs on demanding, variable terrain. Additional protection when the going gets rocky: An integrated carbon plate between the midsole and outsole keeps your foot protected from stone bruises or rock push-through which can be a major discomfort on rocky trails. The "Carbon Shield" protects as well as adds responsiveness and durability. The new "Rubber Tension" concept of a diagonally placed reinforcement across the heel provides an even more precise heel hold. The Vibram® Megagrip sole promises the best grip on alpine terrain as well as in wet or dry conditions.
Dynafit Feline SL Trailrunning Shoe Ireland
This Trail Running shoe is an all-purpose weapon and ideal for the Irish trail runner. With its deep and aggressive POMOCA outsole, it ensures traction even on very soft and muddy terrain. The Feline SL combines a quick lace system with the protection of the "Invisible Lacing" system. That provides a fast and precise fit adjustment that is covered by a stretch fabric lace cover for increased protection against dirt and stones. Engineered with a supportive and dynamic midsole, it is the complete package for your multisport adventures.
Salewa Wildfire Edge GTX
The Wildfire Edge is a technical approach shoe that can be adapted from hiking mode to climbing mode with a simple lacing change. Designed together with mountain guides and top climbers in the Dolomites, the Salewa Switchfit system is as simple as it is smart. Simply tighten the laces at the rear eyelet and then do them up. This way, you pull your foot forward into the toebox, compressing your toes similar to a climbing shoe and giving you much more contact with the rock. Once you’ve finished climbing, loosen the laces at the rear eyelet for a roomier toe box and greater hiking comfort. To further enhance climbing precision, the Wildfire Edge’s insole also incorporates an Edging Plate right under the toes for additional, directional stiffness, while the rest of the insole remains flexible to ensure good comfort and a natural rolling motion. For enhanced grip and friction in both dry and wet conditions, the Pomoca Speed MTN sole is made from Butilic Compound. The sole has a precision climbing zone at the toe, good edging performance and aggressive lugs for improved traction on mud and soft terrain. For enhanced torsional stability, the Exa Shell works together with the 3F System to wrap the foot for flexibility, fit and support. Climbing Lacing extends right to the toe for a more precise fit and greater adjustment. The Multi-Fit Footbed Plus (MFF+) uses interchangeable layers so you can adapt it to the unique shape of your foot, supporting SALEWA’s trademark Alpine Fit 100% blister-free guarantee.
Salewa Mountain Trainer Mid GTX
Our number 1 best seller: the MTN Trainer Mid GTX is a lightweight trekking boot with a robust suede leather and fabric upper plus waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® protection. Designed to provide extra flexibility and increased comfort on both ascents and descents during alpine trekking in mixed and technical terrain, the MTN Trainer Mid GTX has a midsole with dual-density Bi-light TPU Technology which is ergonomically shaped to cradle your foot and provide all-day comfort on longer hikes. At the ankle, the Flex Collar allows natural movement and adaptability during descents for extended comfort, even when carrying a heavy pack. Underfoot, the lightweight, compact Vibram® WTC sole delivers solid yet forgiving walkability. And SALEWA’s 3F System provides flexibility, support and a blister-free fit from day one. In addition, the GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort lining delivers optimized weather protection and climate comfort, and a cushioning OrthoLite footbed wicks away moisture, helping to keep your feet cool and comfortable.
