Very happy tramper
This was my first purchase of 'real hiking boots' after many years of undertaking a variety of walks, making do with runners initially and then lighter walking shoes. As a petite, more mature woman with small, narrow feet, (usually a EU36), I found these Salewa boots fitted well (and I loved their look). The included innersoles of different thicknesses also helped with getting the right fit. I initially purchased a 37, but decided the toe box was a little cramped and Macpac staff readily swapped the boots for a 38. Great decision. Excellent ankle support, good grip when walking over rocks and rock scrambling, great waterproofing which has been invaluable when stepping through snow. It is a rigid boot which may have a little downside on more regular walking tracks, but it is early days as yet. Overall my boots and I are looking forward to many future adventures together.

After almost 2 years of hard work the laces are a bit frayed and the leather is more grey than blue but we’ve seen some things
I’ve been stomping around in these bad boys for two years now and as with all good boots I’m equal parts emotionally attached to them and repulsed by how bad they smell wet. I’ve taken them through the jungle in Vietnam, walked on Lake Baikal in Siberia and climbed Vi Ferrata in the Italian Dolomites. Throw in some classic New Zealand scree running and just recently a photo shoot on the Abel Tasman and they’ve really had to handle a lot of different terrain. From a Kiwi perspective the Salewa Mountain Trainer Mids’ fall into the 3 season category nicely for both warmth and durability. The full rand provides plenty of hard wearing protection for the toes as well as the nubuck suede upper. The rand is definitely my favourite feature as I have a habit of stubbing my toes on all sorts of barely visible sticky outy things and I’m yet to put a hole in it. The 3F lacing system is designed to lock your heel down and prevent the foot slipping forward meaning lots of ankle support as well.

The Gortex lining is still waterproof which I’m impressed with as I haven’t looked after the nubuck with a conditioning product – I do clean them with warm water after most trips though. Lastly, the vibram sole has started to wear down in places, especially along the inside edges but there is still visible tread over the whole foot. In terms of what I brought them for (alpine tramping, scree running and rock scrambling) I think the Salewa boots have performed exceptionally. As they are a bit on the more rugged side for a tramping boot I wouldn’t recommend them for anyone sticking to perfectly groomed paths as you don’t really need the rand or the heavier sole. The biggest fail was that I went a size too small when purchasing them when I should have known to go a size bigger than I normally wear. I have to tape the tops of my toes when going down steep hills as they just hit the end of the boot. It’s turned out to be a frustrating lesson as the boots look like they’ll do a couple more years at least and I want to upgrade just to get the fit right.
