Salewa Mountain Trainer 2 GTX hiking shoe a solid, but flexible alpine approach shoe built for all-day comfort and technical ability on hikes, via ferratas and treks in any terrain and all weathers with a sure-grip Vibram sole and waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex protection. Designed in Montebelluna, the cradle of alpine footwear craftsmanship, the MTN Trainer 2 is a hard-wearing and versatile low-cut alpine approach shoe with a high-quality 1.6-millimetre suede leather upper and a Vibram outsole. Its robust upper has a full protective rubber rand for 360° abrasion resistance in rocky terrain and foot jams, plus a fast-drying Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining for durable waterproofing and optimized breathability. There is a protective stretch gaiter under the laces to keep rain and groundwater out. The improved lasted construction is 15% lighter and more flexible than the original and ensures a comfortable fit, while the expanded PU midsole provides long-lasting shock absorbency and rebound. The multifunctional Vibram outsole gives agility and stability in rugged terrain. Its deep, self-cleaning grooves and aggressive lugs guarantee good grip on rock and scree and optimal traction on mud and grass. Under the midfoot, a special via ferrata tread zone has specific right-angled lugs that maximise the force applied through the foot for better grip on the rungs of iron ladders than a conventional shoe. Our signature 3F system connects the instep area with the sole and heel for flexibility, correct fit and support. A cushioning OrthoLite footbed wicks away moisture, helping to keep your feet cool. The climbing lacing can also be fine-tuned at the toe for greater precision and support in technical terrain. The MTN Trainer 2 is made in Europe and offers the perfect alpine approach solution for technical hikes, via ferratas and treks in all conditions and remote terrain.
