It's surprising that the Salewa Men's Firetail Evo Mid GTX Hiking Boot can offer so much protection and support while only weighing one pound. Gore Tex Extended Comfort guarantees waterproof protection in a highly breathable package for active pursuits. Salewa's innovative 3F System Evo places aluminum wires along the heel to give more flexibility and mobility without hindering the mid cuff's support. Wear resistant aramid keeps the Firetail's upper highly durable, extremely breathable, and incredibly light. Salewa wrapped rubber around the upper's bottom for 360 degree protection from rocks and twigs. This boot also features Cleansport NXT's odor resistance, a conforming Multi Fit Footbed for customized comfort, climbing style laces for a secure fit from heel to toe, and Vibram's heavily lugged Scrambler sole for reliable grip on rugged terrain.
