Product Highlights

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 Women's Alp Trainer Mid GTX hiking boot offers technical performance, lightweight comfort for long day hikes or light backpacking trips.

A full suede leather upper combined with Kevlar protection rands around the base of the boot, toe and heel, offer excellent protection on rough and rocky surfaces. GORE-TEX XCR keeps water out of the boot and allows your foot to breathe.

Salewa's footwear is based on their Three Functions System which consists of Fit, Flex and Support. 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 boot, less rubbing and less potential for blisters. Salewa's Flex Function allows the collar of the boot to move more independently from the upper which results in unbeatable ankle flex for an agile stride and better performance on the trail or on rocky slopes. When moving sideways on steep slopes your ligaments are often pushed to their limits. Salewa's Support Function provides full ankle support while still offering freedom of movement.

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 while the lace-to-toe design allows users to get a more custom fit at the toe of the boot. The Women's Alp Trainer Mid 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 Women's Alp Trainer Mid GTX hiking boot is available in full and half sizes.

    Likes: Good looking boot that has many lacing optoins

    Dislikes: This boot is very narrow compared to boots from different manufacturers. If you have a very narrow foot then this boot may be for you. However, if your foot is normal to wide there are no lacing options that make this boot fit. Returned boot.

    Likes: I bought this product primarily because of the ankle support. Previous choices were good quality but heavy and stiff. These were light and flexible, and offer excellent support. Also I always have blisters on back of ankles with previous boots - none with these.

    Dislikes: So far like everything about these boots. Time will tell how well they hold up.
