The Salewa Alpine Trainer Mid GTX is the most supportive member of the company's Hike Approach family, a line that's designed for the place where hiking meets climbing. With the comfort a hiking boot and the climbing performance of a technical approach shoe.
Climbing performance starts with the outsole on the bottom of the boot, so the Alpine Trainer Mid uses a Vibram Hike Approach sole with a sticky rubber climbing zone in the toe for better smearing when scrambling up rock slabs. Working up from there, you have a unique kevlar fiber rand to protect the suede upper from abrasion, climbing-shoe style lacing that extends right up to the toe for more customizable fit, and an elastic collar at the ankle to keep trail debris out.
