Salewa Wildfire Vent

posted in: Gear Reviews | 106

Salewa has been a relatively new name in the US market but given their unique, quality product they have the approval of the Skinny Ski’s team. The Wildfire Vent, available for both Men and Women, is a versatile but technical approach shoe great for everything from The Grand Teton to Lookout Point. The sturdy sticky rubber Vibram® outsole gives you the ability to be sure footed on technical rock approaches, wall climbs and in open boulder and scree fields. The, Salewa exclusive, 3F System EVO (a fancy name for the exterior X structure below the ankle) allows for better flex and mobility of the shoe while still maintaining the necessary support for those never ending Teton approaches.
