Employing a unique design concept that offers flex, fit and support along with a multi-fit footbed system and GORE-TEX weather protection, the Salewa Alp Trainer GTX trail shoe offers technical performance and lightweight comfort for long day hikes or ultralight backpacking trips.
A full suede leather upper combined with Kevlar protection rands around the base of the shoe, offer excellent protection on rough and rocky surfaces while GORE-TEX XCR keeps water out of the shoe while allowing your foot to breathe.
The Alp Trainer GTX utilizes Salewa's unique design concepts for fit and flexibility. The Fit Function creates an anatomical fit that works with the asymmetry of the human foot and results in less movement in the heel of the shoe, less rubbing and less potential for blisters. Salewa's Flex Function allows the collar of the shoe to move more independently from rest of the upper which results in unbeatable flex at the ankle for an agile stride and better performance on the trail or on rocky slopes.
Salewa uses their Three Functions System, which consists of Fit, Flex and Support, to offer a more precise fit. The connection of the Salewa "Y" to the 3D lacing spreads the lacing force onto the whole foot and controls the movement of the heel better and the lace-to-toe design allows users to get a more custom fit at the toe of the boot. The Alp Trainer GTX also offers a unique footbed that allows individual adjustment of the fit through Salewa's multi-fit foot bed system. The bottom layer can be easily removed from this two-part foot bed to increase the volume within the boot for wider feet or left intact for medium to lower volume feet. A Triple density, microporous rubber midsole creates stiff yet flexible support underfoot, creating better performance when climbing steep, rocky slopes and the Vibram Hike Approach outer sole provides the ideal mixture of durability and grip for on-and-off trail travel.
Sold in pairs, the Salewa Alp Trainer GTX trail shoe is available in full and half sizes.
