Rated 5 out of 5 by from No issues except tight fit at higher altitude. This review concerns the last generation Mid GTX. I just completed a 200km trek in Nepal mainly in a range between 14,000 - 18,000 feet. These boots performed well with very little sole wear and no issues whatsoever. Very comfortable fit with good traction over lots of uneven surfaces. The only critical thought about the boots have to do with sizing. Bottom line, I should have picked 1/2 size larger. I purchased true size 10 and at lower altitudes, sizing is perfect. However at higher altitudes with swollen feet and a narrow toe box, I found the size too small to use both a liner and wool socks, therefore i could not use wicking quick-dry liners which I normally use to minimize sweat. For my next pair I will size up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable, but NOT durable. I was impressed by these boots initially, then disappointed. They were comfortable from day one and broke in nicely. However, I didn't even get a full season out of them before they were wore out. The outsoles wore VERY quickly. I got the boots at the end of June and by August/September there was hardly anything left of the outsole. I would consider these a mid-stiff boot out of the box but they softened up a ton. I can fold them in half without much effort now. I brought both of these issues up with Salewa directly and their customer service rep offered no help and recommend I buy a new pair since mine were "well loved". If Salewa were to use a better outsole and put a shank in these boots I think they would be great. But without either of those things, I wouldn't consider buying another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great boot. Light and comfortable fit. I bought last year's model of this boot from REI. I was so pleased with the fit, that I purchased a second pair. A minor defect: The boot lace hooks stick out a bit too far and catch on things, bending outward (see photo taken after a few hikes). After taking the photo, I bent them back.

Are these in UK sizing or US? I've seen mixed information. I'm a 14 US which equates to a 13 UK.

Asked by: BGFwap
These boots are in US sizing. If you are a US 14, you will want to select a size 14 when ordering.

Would these be acceptable for a Rainier summit?

Asked by: JBarnes3rd
These boots are a great choice for technical hiking or alpine approaches, but they are not designed to be a true mountaineering boot. For a Rainier summit, we recommend looking for a mountaineering boot instead:

Will these boots accept crampons?

Asked by: phlcpa
Yes, the heel welt allows for a use with a semi-auto or hybrid crampons, however, the fit may be most comfortable if you were to use strap crampons instead.
