Who should buy the Salewa Vultur Evo GTX
The Salewa Vultur Evo GTX rises above the competition with its set of transcendent qualities, and those who prefer it are likely to have it for keeps despite its mishap in the weight category. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a shoe that grants comfort and weather protection.
- Prefer a shoe that features in-shoe freshness and antimicrobial treatment.
- Prefer a shoe that has an aggressive profile that promotes traction on various terrain types.
The Salewa Vultur Evo GTX employs a Vibram WTC outsole. This robust material comes with aggressive treads that do not sacrifice the natural feel of the ground. Its multidirectional lugs at the center provide 360-degree traction.
The wide indentations on its surface prevent muck build-up. The forefoot (climbing zone) and the rearfoot regions are styled to be more responsive during ascents and descents, respectively.
Long-lasting cushioning and shock absorption
This mountaineering boot carries the brand-owned Blight midsole. It has an ergonomic shape that provides long-lasting cushioning and shock absorption. It is also designed to receive crampons.
Delivering support is an insole made of nylon and fiberglass (27%). To amplify comfort, it features the MFF+—a component with two interchangeable layers that accommodate various foot shapes and sizes.
The Vultur Evo GTX’s upper is made of hard-wearing 2.8 mm Perwanger suede leather. The benefits of this material are optimized by a lining, the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort laminate. This duo renders protection against water encounters and ventilation during warm weather hikes.
The Gore-Tex membrane also offers a modest amount of insulation. Durability and security on the trails are optimized thanks to the TPU toe cap and wrap-around protective rand.
This Salewa footgear has a Flex Collar which promotes the ankle’s range of motion, especially during descents. It also features an Overlap Closing, a tongue construction that securely wraps the foot without compromising comfort.
Flexible and supportive
The trademarked 3F System connects the instep to the sole and heel. It helps prevent slippage while granting flexibility and support. Also, its lacing system employs combination eyelets. To facilitate easy on and off, it is designed with a heel strap.
