Product description
There's something about forbidding, towering, wind-hammered, frigid, and snowy peaks that just makes you want to stand on top of those suckers. The feeling's tough to describe, but it's powerful nonetheless. The thing is, tackling serious alpine objectives requires serious gear, not just your favorite sweatpants and a good attitude, so you'd be well served to sport footwear like the Salomon X Alp Pro GTX Women's Mountaineering Boot.

The X Alp is a relatively lightweight mountaineering boot, at about 2.5 pounds per pair, but it packs tons of support, protection, and comfort into its relatively slim package. The upper, made from tough and waterproof leather and Cordura, resists abrasion from rocks, ice, and crampons, and the textile lining helps wick moisture away from your feet to maintain a dry, comfortable, and blister-free microclimate around your feet. Even better, the upper is laminated to a waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane so extended time in the snow won't lead to wet feet, which can in turn lead to more serious issues than just discomfort--frostbite's really not fun.
To keep rogue snow, ice, and debris out, Salomon topped the X Alp off with a stretchy hook-and-loop gaiter and gusseted tongue to form a snug seal around your ankle and forefoot, which is finished with the boot's self-locking eyelets for easy fit adjustment and a pinch-free fit. Underfoot, Salomon used a combination of EVA foam and Ortholite to support your arch and cushion your feet against the pounding of long climbs and rugged descents, and gave the X Alp a sole made from tough and ultra-gripy Mountaineering Contagrip rubber. The rand is designed to interface easily with hybrid crampons, and the 3D Edging chassis provides firm support when you're using French technique or trying to use small footholds on near-vertical terrain. A heel strap and additional foam stop your heel from sliding, thereby preventing blisters, and 360 rubber rand protection keeps your toes, arches, and instep from being smashed by rocks and abused by tough winter conditions.

Der richtige Schuh für sportliche Touren

Seit langem suche ich nach einer Bergschuhe, welche steigeisentauglich, robust und trotzdem leicht ist. Für Alpinwandern, Schneeshuhlaufen, Klettersteige und leichte bis mittelschwere Hochtouren eignet sich der Salomon X-Alp Pro hervorragend.

Nach dem Kauf habe ich es an einer leichten zweitägigen Hochtour getragen, und es hat sich gewährt. Sehr bequem, sitzt gut, bietet im Fuss- und Knöchelbereich einen guten Halt und ist ca. 4-500 Gramm leichter als richtige Bergschuhen. Dadurch kann man längere Touren mit einem höheren Tempo ohne Problem durchziehen. Da die Sohle nicht ganz steif ist, bedeuten auch die lange Abstiege im Geröll und schwierigem, steilem Gelände kein Problem mehr, die Dämpfung ist sehr gut und die Schuhe hat praktisch den Komfort einer Wanderschuhe.

Die Sohle ist genau im richtigen Mass flexibel: Steigeisen kann man schon befestigen, im Schnee kann man Kante geben, aber auch zum Klettern bleibt es noch genug flexibel. Die selbstblockierende Schnürösen sind ein Luxus, die Gamaschen halten Steinchen vom Schuh fern, falls man in kurzer Hose unterwegs ist.

Der Schuh ist gedämmt: bis zweistellige Minusgraden bietet es genügend Schutz, aber es hatte auch in 20-25 °C Komfort.

Über die langfristige Nutzung kann ich noch kein Bescheid geben, aber der erste Einsatz war sehr positiv. Negative Punkte sind mir noch nicht aufgefallen.
