This is a ridged shoe. Toe area felt good. Heal would slip and slide causing irritation. Had to return shoes.

The shoes are great and as the other reviewer mentioned, they are squeaky. Particularly where the tongue meets the leather eyelets it squeaks pretty loud. Going to get some foot power on the tongue and that should quiet it down a bit. Other than that, the shoes feel great and fit like running shoes meant for the trail. I have a pair of the Gore-tex version and those are just as good when the weather becomes the enemy. These also seem to be fairly water resistant although I'm not sure of the watershed capability just yet, but, from walking in the wet grass to work I didn't have an issue. The color of the leather is almost a realy dark hunter green and not a brown. Really nice colors. The laces are very vibrant and I think I may switch them out but they are good to go as well as they have yet to come untied like some other laces.

These shoes seem more a light hiker than a trail running shoe, so seem a bit clunky. There is an aggressive tread that looks like it would do well on icy terrain. Surprised no one has mentioned how hard it is to get into this shoe! Even when laces are loosened, it's a struggle, at least for me...and I have a narrow foot. I generally wear a 7 in running shoes and hikers, 6.5 or 37 in street shoes. These seemed a tad large for a 7. All in all, a well-made, tough shoe, but must go back. Too large for me, and too difficult to put on.

I ordered my normal size and could hardly fit my foot in. Not sure what the problem was but am willing to try it again in a size larger just haven’t had the chance. Zappos was awesome as usual with the return. I have a few pairs of the low top version so I really want to make these work.

I have been wearing size 12 Salewa's for a few years now and this is now my third try to find a new pair, but all three were too small. Not sure if they changed anything, but no where to go but a full size up. Be warned.

I wanted a GoreTex trail running shoe. This is built more as a hiking shoe. Build is too stiff for any feel of the terrain. Otherwise a great design and well fitting shoe.

Finally found my perfect shoe! I was looking for fully waterproof GoreTex trail running shoe. With plenty of room in toe box for winter weight socks. Not so stiff as a hiking design so I can feel the trail but enough support to handle rocky terrain. Cut around ankle bone is a bit high as rubbed a teensy but breaking in nicely. Ordering a second pair !

I have been eyeing this brand for some time, finally went for it. One of the best decisions in shoe's I've made in a long time, use to wear altra, but no more. After a few steps they broke in very nice, I realize Salewa can get pricy, but my first pair gives in to the idea they may be worth it. Solid buy!

Colors and style appear as shown on website. The fit was smaller than the stated size and smaller than the same size in a different Salewa shoe I own. To me the fit was narrow and tight across the top of the foot. Length was on the short side of adequate.

I ordered these shoes because they were recommended for feet with a narrow heel, prone to blisters. Because of my narrow heel, I have never been able to find a pair of hiking shoes that I did not get blisters from. At first, I thought I had finally found a shoe that I could wear hiking without pain and was super excited. But after only about 20-25 miles of hiking over 2-3 days, I ended up developing awful achilles tendinitis. The way the shoe is designed is great for preventing blisters because it’s got a deep heel cup that cradled my heel but that also put a tremendous amount of pressure on the attachment point of my achilles to heel bone. I am so sad to have to send them back.

These shoes are awesome. I’m currently using them hiking around Norway and will be off to Iceland soon and am so happy with my purchase decision. They look great, keep my feet warm and dry in the wet weather, and are light weight and comfortable for the 8+ miles I’m covering each day. The bottom tread is very tacky so i feel sure-footed even on slippery surfaces. I highly recommend them to anyone who looking for a shoe that performs great on the trails as well as looks cool around town.

This is the second pair of Salewa athletic shoes I have purchased, which is a statement itself. They are comfortable, which is a challenge for me because me feet are two different sizes. They feel good and they look good. What else could I ask for? Arrived earlier than expected and I have ordered from Zappos for years without ever having a problem. I trust them.

These shoes are probably over and above what I need for my daily walk, but I do walk on hilly, wet, sometimes slick (moss covered) sidewalks and streets. I wanted non-slip shoes and these seem to be just what I want. The Oregon winter rains are yet to come, but I have walked in somewhat slick conditions and the shoes are as advertised so far. I read reviews on adventure websites and these shoes get stellar reviews everywhere. I am not overly sold on the climbing lacing system but once I figured it out I am ok with it. (I am wondering what would happen if a lace breaks, but considering the expected quality of these shoes I hope that will not happen.) The jury is out on whether or not I would purchase shoes with this lacing system in the future. For now, I am sold on these very comfortable walking shoes. I am also not sure I would pay full price for them. They are expensive, but I got them on sale. I fluctuate between 7.5 and 8, depending on brand, and the 8's fit perfectly. (I had a bit of an issue with my order and, as always, Zappos customer service came through!)

I’ve ordered a half size bigger, cause they didn’t have my size... turned out to be 2 size bigger. I was committed the purchase based on I’ve had a Salewa shoes before. Still think Salewa is unbeatable in hiking shoes!

I have been wearing a lot of Salomon brand shoes. I've good experience but tried these on recommendation of a friend. Fit: They feel about a half size small. Still comfortable but they just fit. If you are close go a size up. Comfort: I'm impressed with how comfortable. They have a little stiffer sole than the different Salomon I have tried. Breathability : this is my only real gripe. They make my feet sweat like no shoe I have ever owned. After one 8 hour day of use they began to smell terrible. I have to spray them every day with something to try to kill the smell. I've tried several things and nothing really works. Never had that problem with any other GTX shoe I have owned. (been through 10 pairs of Salomons, 2 pairs of Merrill, a pair of Asolo, and 2 pair of North face, over the years) I'll probably end up wearing them for yard work because it's getting to the point I can't wear them in public due to the smell.

These do run small. With the size I normally wear, the arch didn't feel substantial at all. As soon as I got 1/2 size larger, the arch felt perfect. Great shoes if you make sure you take the time to get the right size.

Love the look of this shoe on the foot. Laces come up high enough to cinch foot to back of shoe when going down hill. Great feel of heel on the ground and support. Disappointed it is more narrow than their other shoes. Would have bought it if it was wider or was available in wide.

Ordered these after researching and trying a couple other styles by Salewa and others. Was still searching for what seemed to be an elusive replacement for Lowa Tempests (which don't fit me like they used to... 4 pairs later). But, on to the Mountain Trainer GTX: Fit and finish are excellent, with solid construction and intelligent design. They do feel a little short in length, but that seems to be changing as they break in and the heel pocket and upper collar soften a bit. Really like how secure my feet feel in these! The lacing and 3F system lock my foot in place -- no slop, no sliding and extremely stable while hiking some rocky trails near here. They are very stiff when new and have a slight forward rocking motion on the move; which is very like my old Tempests and something I like. The Mtn Trainer is not a lightweight shoe, but I don't honestly notice the weight. Also, it probably is not for the wide or thick of foot! I have an average width foot which is somewhat thin, top to bottom, and these fit very nicely with a lightwight merino wool sock (Smartwool Phd) Trying to get them broken in before a honeymoon trip to do some serious hiking on the Isle of Skye and the West of Ireland next month. So far, so good -- they feel like winners!

I normally wear a 7 or 7.5 shoe, but had to get a full size larger in this model of the Salewa, but it was worth the hassle of returning not one but two orders (first a 7 then a 7.5) before landing on the 8 which fits perfectly. For a very sturdy hiking shoe, this one is comfortable right out of the box. It looks and feels great and is a perfect shoe to go from city to country to trail. Very happy with this purchase now that I've gotten the correct size. Happily Zappos makes returns very easy!

These boots are bomb proof. I have hiked a bit In them and out of the box prime comfort. I would recommend that you take the time to break them in. I had a few hot spots on my feet the first 10-20 miles of hiking. Now they feet perfect. These boots aren't hot, flimsy, or uncomfortable. The waterproofing has been spot on all the way up above the ankle. I plan on wearing these for two elk hunts this fall. I look forward to how stiff these are so I can carry 40+ lbs. Will more than likely buy these for my father.

I have had these shoes for a few months now. I wear them for daily work and hikes. They are extremely comfortable. I have the Gore-Tex version and they aren't hot at all. I am 10.5 true and I went with the 10.5 for the tight snug fit that an approach shoe should have. The 3f system has been great for keep my heel locked into the shoe, and reducing the chance of blisters. I tested the waterproofing multiple times and it was perfect. My feet felt wet, but it was just my sweat the cold water making my feet cold. (I pulled the shoes off to check). I am for sure going to be purchasing another pair!
