Wear-resistant midsole of Salewa’s Crow GTX

Using an EVA midsole, Salewa’s Crow GTX provides comfort and cushioning to its users. EVA foams are also known to be wear-resistant. 

Salewa Crow GTX heel support and crampon

The 3S Combi System enables optimal performance on terrains. It has TPU inserts that are compatible with crampons. The insole, which is a combination of nylon and 27% fiberglass, renders support and flexibility. Using the Cleansport NXT, the Crow GTX is able to keep a fresh, in-shoe environment. 

Salewa’s flexible and comfortable upper

Salewa Crow GTX leather rand

Salewa’s Crow GTX upper has 1.6 mm suede leather and water-resistant fabric for its upper. This construction gives the boot flexibility. The 360-degree full rubber rand that overlays the boot reinforces its durability.

The Crow GTX's Flex Collar increases the ankle’s rear range of motion. It promotes comfort during descents while its curved shape design allows plantar flexion of the foot. When the natural movement of the ankles is not restrained, foot fatigue is prevented.

Salewa Crow GTX ankle support

The 3F System (Y-shaped string) which connects the instep to the sole and heel brings flexibility and stability to the user. It also locks the heel in place, thus preventing heel slippage. A secure lockdown of the heel prevents it from lifting and helps avoid having blisters. The three-way connection ensures comfort and foot control.

Salewa Crow GTX 3F System

The moderately insulated Gore-Tex Performance Comfort permits breathability, waterproofness and comfort. It works well in a variety of outdoor conditions. It prevents water from seeping in and allows moisture inside to escape.
