Delivering a supportive fit and sure traction, the versatile Salewa Men’s Wildfire GTX approach shoe offers technical top-of-the-mountain performance with comfort and nimbleness to tackle technical day hiking.
The microfiber Ballistic mesh upper has an Exa Shell “cage’ that wraps around the midfoot to maximize stability without inhibiting breathability. This design also increases durability as does a front rubber cap that protects your toes from rocks and roots. A waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX membrane keeps feet dry and comfortable. A climbing-style collar-to-toe lacing system allows users to get a more custom fit.
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 shoe, less internal rubbing, and, in turn, reduced overall potential for blisters. A “Y”-shaped connection spreads the lacing three-dimensionally to hug the entire instep and better control the movement of the heel.
Underfoot, an EVA midsole and a cushioned footbed combine to provide all-day comfort and reduce fatigue. The shoe's performance-oriented POMOCA outsole delivers the sticky grip you'd expect from an approach shoe while also offering reliable traction for surfaces other than rock. The unique compound and lug patterning ensure that you stay upright and moving on wet or dry terrain.
Sold in pairs, the Salewa Men's Wildfire GTX shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
- Salewa 3F System connects the instep area of the shoe with the sole and the heel, ensuring flexibility, support and the correct fit where it's needed
