        Comments about SALEWA Men's Alp Trainer Mid GTX Backpacking Boots:

        Ok had a pair of Asolo fugitives that lasted way beyond any of my exceptation but caused hotspots with heavy loads and long hikes. Salewa won editors choice so i figered what the hell i'll try them. sizing. my nikes are size 11 and my toe touches the tip. My asolos where 11.5 but i wore thick wool socks. i just switched to smart wool socks so i went with an 11. these boots are about a 1/2 size maybe less, if thats possible, too big but not a problem because the heel wire and the narrow arch bed will not let your feet slip at all even when laced loosely. i hiked at least 30 miles with a 50 lbs pack over less then perfect terrian with no slips, blisters, well nothing not even sweaty feet. i'll be purchasing another pair of salewa boot ( the firetrail model ) very soon for approach shoes. on another note i live in ohio and everything i have purchased from ems has got to me with 3 business days just an fyi

        Good traction and stability , excellent for "via ferrata".
        Decent smearing and edging
        sticky rand and sole ( the last one could be thicker...)

          Comments about SALEWA Men's Alp Trainer Mid GTX Backpacking Boots:

          Looked long and at every boot I could get my hands on for a backpacking boot that was comfortable. Most are too narrow and squeeze my foot. I don't have wide feet - normal sneakers fit me fine. However, backpacking boots seem to be cut to a different mold. These Salewas came through for me. Fit is great. Really comfortable. Easy to put on and off. can't wait for the real test: 10 days in Patagonia. Trust me, if they fail, I'll post it right here.

            For so many features on this boot it's very reasonably priced. fits true to size, warm and surprisingly light weight. Lacing system with the heel straps are clever.
