Get there quickly and comfortably.

The Salewa Women's Speed Ascent Hiking Shoe has the look and feel of a trail running shoe, and it'll suit the speediest hikers out there. Salewa's Take-Off Technology curves the Vibram Rollingait System for a rolling heel-to-toe transition that promotes a faster trek. Take-Off Technology also assists with optimizing motion in lower limbs, easing muscle recovery, and ensuring long-lasting comfort on long trails.

The Speed Ascent also features Salewa's MFF+ Multi-Fit Footbed that makes for a customized feel. Drawcord lacing gives the Overlap Closing a secure and seamless feel. The upper uses microfiber suede for durability, mesh for ventilated airflow, and Salewa's highly wear-resistant microfiber fabric that stays strong for seasons.

Not For Me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: 8.5

I don't know. I was adventurous in purchasing these shoes. But reluctant the moment I took them out of the box. They looked small? I ordered an 8.5 b/c that's my true size and wanted a true understanding of this brand & shoe. I probably could have gone up a half size. But what really ended up turning me off was the way the shoe distributes weight. It feels like it throws it backwards. Like you are not balanced. Which, in turn, makes me think, "I won't wear these ever." & "Sooner or later, this shoes will cause me to fall and get hurt." Returning pronto. No thank you.
