It's surprising that the Salewa Men's Firetail EVO Hiking Shoe is packed with many protective and durable features, and yet remains so lightweight. Its 3F Evo System includes steel cables that run along the external sides of the shoe in order to ensure a full freedom of movement without compromising safety. By utilizing aramid fibers, the Firetail's upper resists abrasion, water, and mud while the breathable mesh lining utilizes a Silverized Fresh treatment to reduce odor. Inspired by rock climbing shoes, the laces provide a snug fit from toe to heel, and the MFF Multi Fit footbed forms to your foot for customizable comfort. The grippy Vibram Tech Approach sole sticks to the trail to help prevent slipping, and Salewa wrapped the edges with rubber for extra protection.
