Delivering flex, fit and support and incorporating a multi-fit footbed system, the Salewa Men’s Rapace GTX boot offers agile performance and sturdy, lightweight comfort for light mountaineering, technical alpine routes, or multi-day backpacking trips.
A 1.8mm Nubuk leather and Cordura upper provides a combination of durability, comfort, and breathability. A 360-degree, sticky rubber rand encases the base of the boot, offering excellent protection on rough and rocky surfaces and improving traction on steep, technical climbs or Via Ferrata routes. In wet or snowy weather, a GORE-TEX performance comfort membrane keeps water out of the boot while allowing your foot to breathe.
Salewa's 3F system 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. Flex around the collar of the boot allows more independent movement from the upper which results in the ability to flex your ankle for an agile stride. When moving sideways on steep slopes your ligaments are often pushed to their limits, but Salewa’s built-in support provides full ankle support while still offering freedom of movement.
A “Y”-shaped wire connection spreads the lacing three-dimensionally to hug the entire foot and better control the movement of the heel. A climbing-style lace-to-toe design allows users to get a more custom fit. The Men’s Rapace GTX also offers a unique footbed that allows individual adjustment of the fit through. 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 MID-STIFF nylon midsole creates a stiff yet flexible platform for full underfoot protection when descending or climbing rocky ridges and the Vibram Mulaz outer sole provides the ideal mixture of durability and grip for on and off trail travel.
Sold in pairs, the Salewa Men’s Rapace GTX trekking boot is available in full and half sizes.
