The Salewa Women's Firetail EVO GTX Hiking Shoe fuses a colorful design with maximum support and waterproof performance, allowing you to trek through virtually any terrain and weather condition with ease. The shoe features a waterproof breathable Gore Tex Extended Comfort lining that keeps your feet dry and well ventilated when you slog through wet, mud caked trails. This day hiking specialist excels at fast paced, high mileage hikes with its ultra tough Aramid used in bullet proof vests upper that's reinforced with wear resistant materials. In addition, the shoe's Silverized antimicrobial treatment resists odor causing bacteria. Designed with the innovative 3F Evo System, the shoe itself uses a steel wire brace, extending from the middle part of the sole to the laces and back around the heel. This provides excellent support normally found on mid or high top hikers without the restricting cuff. The shoe's Multi Fit Footbed Plus conforms to your foot for a customized fit and proper support, and the Firetail EVO's Vibram Tech Approach sole gives grip and stability with its rugged tread design.
