Aim for the top.
Designed for intense forays into rugged high-mountain terrain, the Salewa Men's Mountain Trainer Mid Leather Backpacking Boots provide the support, comfort, and aggressiveness you need when hiking above treeline. Their durable and wear-resistant suede upper is reinforced with a 360-degree rubber rand to protect against wear when hiking across rock-strewn trails, and they sport elements of approach shoes to ensure they're up to the task of near-vertical climbs and scrambles up scree fields.
Their laces extend down to the toe to guarantee the precise fit you'd find on a pair of approach shoes, and Salewa's signature 3F System connects to the lacing to wrap around your heel and mid-foot as you tighten the laces in order to lock your heel down and reduce fatigue and friction. Vibram's rugged Lynx C outsole provides the sure-footed traction you need when you're traversing razor-thin ridges. And for those long backpacking trips when your socks may see multiple days of use in a row, the boots are treated with Cleansport NXT, which naturally neutralizes odor-causing microbes while you sweat.
