Gear Institute and Salewa are offering you the chance to win a pair of Firetail 3 women’s high tech approach shoes right now. Click here to enter the contest, and see below for more information on the Firetail, as well as two other new boots from Salewa.
Designed for technical rocky paths, the Firetail 3 offers excellent climbing performance due to its Vibram Reptail sticky sole with Megagrip compound – a high-performance, sticky but durable rubber compound also used in rock shoes that gives 25 percent more friction. Salewa technologies ensure a very precise fit, including Climbing Lacing which extends right to the toe for accurate adjustment; the brand’s proprietary 3F System for firm ankle and heel support, and a cushioning Ortholite footbed to wicks away moisture.

Ultra Train GTX
Specifically designed for speed hiking and mountain training, the Ultra Train GTX is focused on offering excellent traction and stability, so you can fully concentrate on your training, whether long runs on mountain trails or uphill intervals. The shoe is built around Michelin’s performance outsole, exclusively developed with Salewa. Its special compound is combined with grooves and sculptures for outstanding traction and stability over hard and uneven terrain. This works together with the midsole’s Motion Guidance technology to support the foot’s natural movement, while the Gore-Tex construction will keep you dry in the rain. More Info
Alp Flow Mid GTX
The Alp Flow Mid GTX is a mid-cut hiking boot with a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining and Surround technology for additional breathability and temperature regulation in moderate and warmer conditions, whatever the weather. Gore-Tex Surround uses a patented open construction to allow moisture and warmth to escape not only through the upper, but also downwards below the foot through the laminate. The boot has a nubuck leather and ballistic mesh upper with a protective rand, while the durable and versatile Vibram Hike Approach sole covers a wide spectrum of mountain terrain. More Info
