Everything other than actually getting these onto your feet is excellent. The elephant in the room is the built in sock/gaiter. The opening is far too small, noting the material doesn't stretch enough and is very restrictive. If, like me, you've wide feet then you'll find it challenging to get them on. The strange thing here is the foot bed within the shoe accommodates wide feet. I'm having to use two shoe horns to get them onto my feet and only able wear thin liner socks. I'm still a fan of Salewa products but more R&D required on this particular shoe.
- Price / performance
- Good grip
- Stabilizes the foot
Bought these shoes 6 months ago used like 15 times max for hikes of age 15 km each time in dry hot weather they grip well , BUT they are NOT Waterproof - even walking on wet grass makes them soaking wet sent them back to Salewa and their response was that the boots had been well used (6months old) and they have been not dryed properly and that's why the goretex failed which is nonsense the boots got wet 2 times they were used in wet grass vegetation and yes Cyprus is hot and dry
- Good grip
