SalewaWildfire GTX Approach Shoe - Women's

Move like a fire's chasing you.

Techy approaches and heavy hiking boots aren't exactly a match made in Heaven, so you should lace up the Salewa Wildfire GTX Women's Approach Shoe when you're adventure leans towards the scrambling side of the spectrum. With climbing-shoe-style lacing that extends all the way to the toe, a fairly stiff Vibram Tech Approach Evo sole, and Megagrip rubber, the Wildfire excels on slabby sections and technical trails, and it can hold its own if some easy fifth-class sections show up on your route.

The Wildfire won't shy away from more traditional trails, either, with a breathable microfiber and ballistic mesh upper that's lined with a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane to keep your feet cool and dry if you end up splashing through puddles or dashing through alpine showers. Salewa decked the Wildfire out with its famous Multi-Fit customizable footbed system, so you can dial in the fit to your exact specs. A 3F flexible support system keeps your foot and ankle stable while allowing killer mobility, and the Exa Shell Cage reinforcement keeps the upper from tearing on rocks, brambles, and branches.

A liitle Narrow

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I dig these shoes. They are a little narrow for my wide feet and yet I love them. I may have been able to get away with a half size up. I love the look and feel of them. I've only used them for everyday use and a little on a boat. I'm still recovering from two shoulder surgeries so I've only done some light hiking in them.

Love these shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes fit perfect and there was no break-in period. I wear and 8 and the 8 that I bought was the perfect size. They are very comfortable and feel great with my feet that have high arches. The lacing up to the toes is great for getting a really good fit.

Most comfortable approach shoe

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 8

After my feet got eaten by my last pair of approach shoes during long day in a Zion canyon, I switched to these for canyoneering. Am really happy with how comfortable they are, right amount of ankle support to still flex in weird angles, super sticky.

It fits great and love the color!!

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 7.5

I tried this pair shoes on and it fits great. I like the fact Selawa gave me a different pair of insert to try on if the shoes are a bit big. That's great thought for the product! I also love the color very much too! Very good hiking shoes

Feet heaven

These shoes are so comfy and do well on every terrain. I hike in them and even climb in them a fair bit while I'm setting up easy top ropes for my friends.
