The SPECS of the Salewa Men's MS Alp Trainer Mid GTX Boot
"Great shoe right out of the box but order a 1/2 size bigger!!!"
Walk 2.5/4.5 miles a shift so I go through a lot of shoes but so far these are my new favorite approach shoes. Have to put some more miles on them to be my favorite. I should have listened to the other readers who said to order larger but I am usually between a 9 and a 9.5 so I went with 9.5. They fit with my lighter Injinii sox but I can see, when it gets colder, they may be a little tight with warmer thicker wool socks. No hot spots as of yet and I wore them right out of the box and walked 4 miles with no issues. Much better than Asolo's approach shoes and hoping they last longer as well.
I've taken these boots out for several week + hauls loaded down, and my feet come back happy every single time! They're as confident kicking out 20+ miles in a day through rolling hills as they are scrambling up boulders. Bottom line is, buy these, apply to feet, and go. You won't regret it.
