The Salewa Men's Alp Trainer Mid GTX is a hiking boot made of strong, tough suede, featuring PU reinforcements and an elasticated tongue. GORE-TEX lining for feet that stay dry. The Multi Fit footbed can be removed and, together with the Climbing Lacing system, allows the boot to be adjusted to suit the exact shape of the wearer's foot. Premium Vibram sole with a coarse tread and a gentle heel-to-toe transition.
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.
