Stylish, supportive, and ultra plush, the Salewa Women's Firetail EVO Hiking Shoe delivers everything you desire in a day hiking shoe. Designed for fast paced, high mileage day hikes, the shoe's upper material is made of Aramid and wear resistant materials, ensuring long lasting wear through thick vegetation, craggy trails, and rough terrain. In addition, the shoe's Silverized antimicrobial treatment resists funky, odor causing bacteria when you wear these shoes in sweaty conditions. 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 restricting cuff. The shoe's Multi Fit Footbed Plus conforms to your foot for a customized fit and proper support. Clawing through rocky strewn terrain and rough trails, the Firetail EVO's Vibram Tech Approach sole gives sure footed grip and stability with its rugged tread design.
