      Great, comfortable hiking shoes. Third pair of Salewa hiking shoes that I own, (have the Firetail and Alp Trainer - which is the low cut version of this same hiking boot), and these do not disappoint. Having a low arch, the climbing shoe lacing style system down to your toe and snug at the ankle provide great support and security for hiking. Minimal break in period meant just wearing them with hiking socks around the house for a couple of days. Out on the trail, they felt great. Would definitely purchase this brand again. Super comfortable.

        Comments about SALEWA Women's Alp Trainer Mid GTX Light Hiking Shoes, Slate/Mint:

        I had such high hopes for these boots. They are perfectly waterproof, very comfortable, protected my toes and had great ankle support. Unfortunately, the metal hooks that hold the laces at the top of the boots stick out way too much and your right lace or hook easily catches onto the left hook or lace. So after a week of hiking, I almost fell - hard - four times because my shoes would get hooked onto each other as my feet were passing each other. It was scary because my feet were stuck together mid-stride and I would trip while hiking very rocky or weet terrain. At one point, the right hook actually ripped out of my boot when my left foot got caught on it. That hook ripping out was the only thing that saved me from face planting into a large granite boulder. My right lace still gets caught on the left hook, so I'll be returning these boots now that I'm home. It's too bad- I really liked them!

          I can't believe how lucky I was to buy the last pair of these today at your SoHo store at 30% off! -- during the snowstorm. I normally wear a size 6.5, but the 7 fit me perfectly with a little wiggle room, in my wool socks. I was slipping all over the place wearing a pair of slippery boots, so I wore these out of the store. And voila! I was hurrying down the snowy sidewalks as though I were on a pair of Michelin tires! The traction was simply amazing! Snow flew behind me as I tore through the streets :D. My left boot was the floor display and felt like a marshmallow wrapped around my foot. My right boot, however, freshly unwrapped from the box, felt a little stiff and painful at first. After pulling the tongue away from my inner ankle, it felt better, but still stiff. I'm sure it will soften with use. I wished I had gotten the name of my sales associate, to thank him here. He had countless customers clamoring for his attention, and yet he was was very helpful (promptly setting out the mate for me to try on without my asking), asked me how they fit, answered all my questions, and assured me that these were fantastic, high-quality boots in great demand. I'm looking forward to hiking in them in Tibet in 2014. And I hope you have a better day tomorrow ;)! Thank you SO much!!!

            Have hiked twice with these and they were great. Very comfortable, no blisters as they promised. Lightweight yet stable, I'm very happy with these boots.

            Comments about SALEWA Women's Alp Trainer Mid GTX Light Hiking Shoes, Slate/Mint:

            I was looking for a boot that could go from hiking to hunting. I specifically wanted a pair that was made with Gortex. The boot felt great as soon as I put it on. My first hike with them I decided was my break-in run. I have been a hiker and avid hunter my entire adult life. The boot is EXTREMELY uncomfortable above the ankle. It has poor pressure points and leaves/creates large swelled areas the size of quarters 2 inches above the ankle bone. I love the weight of them, the idea that they are waterproof and there is no break in needed. I just can't take the pain that they cause when my feet are in them and hiking. I hope when I return them all efforts will be made to set me up with a pair that is going to fit all my needs as these except provide comfort above the ankles.
