The Mtn Trainer GTX is an alpine approach shoe designed for technical hiking, via ferratas and trekking. Its versatile and multifunctional Vibram Mtn Trainer Evo outsole provides confidence and stability in difficult terrain. The deep, self-cleaning grooves and aggressive lugs guarantee good grip on rock, scree and via ferratas and optimal traction on mud, grass and snow. In the midfoot tread area is a via ferrata zone with specific right-angled lugs that maximise force applied through the foot. They ensure better grip on the rungs of via ferrata ladders than a conventional flat midfoot section.
The robust suede upper has a 360° protective rubber rand and a GORE-TEX Extended Comfort lining for durable waterproofing and optimized breathability: water stays on the outside while perspiration can easily escape from the inside. Inside the shoe, the Bilight TPU midsole provides improved and long-lasting shock absorbency and rebound.
Salewa´s signature 3F system connects the instep area with the sole and heel for flexibility, correct fit and support. A cushioning OrthoLite footbed wicks away moisture, helping to keep your feet cool. Climbing lacing provides a more wrapping fit at the forefoot. And 3D eyelets allow customized three-zone lace tensioning – you can also fine-tune the toe-area for greater precision and support in technical terrain.
The Mtn Trainer GTX is made in Europe.
The Salewa 3F System combines the lacing system, sole and heel for the perfect combination of fit, flexibility and support.
Climbing Lacing offers precise lacing in the toe area of the shoe for more support and performance in difficult terrain.
All the outsoles of both the technical mountaineering shoes and the Approach shoes are exclusive to Salewa. They have been developed in collaboration with Vibram's technical department with the aim of achieving the highest possible level of support, durability and comfort. The soles are the point of contact between the athlete and the surface.
In the technical apparel industry, Gore-Tex laminates are the first choice when it comes to waterproofing, breathability and durability. The Gore-Tex membrane is absolutely waterproof and at the same time allows perspiration to be transported to the outside. It consists of pores 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water and 700 times larger than a molecule of water vapour, so water cannot penetrate from the outside and moisture can escape from the inside.
Durable cushioning, high breathability and unique moisture management. The lightweight, washable OrthoLite footbed ensures unparalleled comfort.
