The new Salathé approach shoe, stable, precise, lightweight, has been developed to meet the needs of all those who have always dreamed of a "from the car to the top" shoe.
Named after one of the most iconic climbing places, it was created for via ferrata and technical approach, but its extreme comfort and versatility make it perfect for trekking and hiking.
The unique height, called "up-cut", combines the freedom of a low shoe with the protection of a mid shoe. The fit is wrapping and precise thanks to the inclusion of elastic materials and an innovative construction with “to toe” lacing.
The upper, in embossed suede leather, is protected by a 360° rand to increase the protectionagainst rocks and stones. Salathè is water-repellent thanks to the specific Hydroblock® treatment, and its waterproofnees is guaranteed by the GORE-TEX Extended Comfort lining.
The elasticat and breathable gusset exponentially increases the comfort, as does the pre-shaped collar made with a new technology that provides support while optimising the use of material.
The microporous midsole has two different densities to provide shock absorption and torsional rigidity at the same time: its construction gives the shoe cushioning and protection, while the Vibram® Pepe outsole with Megagrip® compound ensures ultimate grip on different types of terrain.
