Who should buy the Salewa Wildfire Edge Mid GTX
The Wildfire Edge Mid GTX is remarkable in both function and form. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a comfortable approach shoe built for precision no matter the weather condition.
- Prefer a built-in stretch gaiter, which promises to keep virtually all sorts of debris out of the shoe.
- Prefer an adequately waterproof shoe.
Excellent grip with a dry and wet surface
With the Wildfire Edge Mid GTX’s Pomoca Speed MTN Pro outsole, wearers can travel across a variety of terrain with sufficient traction. It is based on a rubber compound that delivers enough slip and skid resistance on the trail, whether the surface is dry or wet.
The tooth-like protrusions (a.k.a lugs) scattered all around it provide users with extra security over loose soil. Its smooth front end, on the other hand, serves as the shoe’s climbing zone—a feature that grants additional sticking power over boulder-type terrain.
The heel platform of the Wildfire Edge Mid GTX is designed cushy yet tough to give owners a combination of comfort and protection in the lead-up to their target climbing spot.
Additional edging support
It is paired with the shoe’s insole called Edging Plate, which provides additional edging support. Right on top of these two components is the shoe’s MFF+ (Multi-Fit Footbed Plus) orthotic courtesy of Ortholite. This removable insert is made up of a sturdy bottom layer and a cushy top layer.
Anti-rock heel cup
This approach boot envelops the foot in its mid-cut upper made with a combination of suede leather (at 1.6 mm thick), microfiber, and 3D-printed cage-like overlays. It has a debris-protective gaiter, which is synthetic. It comes engineered with an anti-rock heel cup for added support.
Its ability to fence out moisture and keep the shoe’s interior adequately ventilated is thanks to Gore-Tex’s Extended Comfort liner.
Fit management system
The Wildfire Edge Mid GTX’s upper is made complete with a pair of pull loops and the footgear’s fit management system. The latter is made up of combination eyelets and heavy-duty synthetic lace.
