Looking for a lightweight, versatile hiking shoe that you can approach and climb in on exposed, technical terrain? Look no further. The Wildfire Edge is a nimble tech approach shoe that switches quickly and easily from hiking mode to climbing mode. Designed together with and tested extensively by professional climbers and mountain guides in the Dolomites, the Salewa Switchfit system is as simple as it is smart. By lacing and tensioning the additional eyelet, you pull your foot forward similar to a climbing shoe. The result: better edging and smearing and increased security on technical terrain. To convert back to hiking mode, simply loosen the laces for a roomy toebox and hiking comfort.
- The Pomoca Speed MTN sole is made of sticky rubber for extra grip and friction on smooth rock and slabs
- The outsole design offers a balance of grip and traction and has a special lug profile that has been proven on mud and soft terrain. It provides effective grip in both wet and dry conditions.
- For enhanced torsional stability, the Exa shell protects and wraps the foot preventing internal foot slipping
- 3F System wraps the foot to guarantee a good fit and provide support whilst still allowing flexibility
- To further enhance climbing precision, the Wildfire Edgeâ€™s insole incorporates an additional stiff Edging Plate in the insole right under the forefoot for extra, directional stiffness
