Size and fit

The Vultur Vertical GTX is a men’s mountaineering boot that comes in regular sizes and standard widths. Salewa also incorporated their fit technologies in this gear. One feature is called 3D lacing. It allows the user to customize the fit on the forefoot, midfoot, and cuff. Another is the Climbing Lacing. It renders a precise fit on the toe area. Finally, the 3F system which connects the instep to the sole and heel helps maintain an accurate fit and support.

Enables to bite on surfaces and prevents slips

The Vibram/Salewa Pro outsole has a mountaineering tread that grips on mud and snow. Its aggressive lugs enable it to bite on surfaces while preventing slips through its self-cleaning profile. The climbing toe zone assists wearers on steep slopes.
