From a brand with a rich alpine heritage, Salewa built the Women's Mountain Trainer Hiking Shoes to deliver the performance you need when you take to the hills. Maintaining many of the same features you'd find on a big and burly alpine boot, this light hiker combines the rugged durability of Salewa's mountaineering oriented boots but in a more nimble design for quick day hikes and lightning fast summer ascents. On their uppers, the shoes utilize a combination of suede and Cordura, and they're reinforced with a full wrap rubber rand to protect against wear from rocks, logs, and brush. A breathable mesh lining provides a high level of comfort on those really hot days in the hills, while their mid stiff midsole delivers the performance needed when scrambling up scree fields and climbing up those exposed sections of trail just before the summit. A durable Vibram sole give these shoes the solid grounding they need to function in a high mountain environment.
