360-degree traction

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.

Responsive forefoot and rearfoot

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.

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.

Weatherproof

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.
