I purchased these for hot and humid weather, and for situations that I need the support of a hiking/approach show. They seem to have enough venting to allow for sufficient air flow and the color, although dark, does not appear to attract the heat (absorb may be a good word). But it is only April and I have not had these shoes long enough to comment on fit, durability, or if they are any good in the hot weather. (If I update this it will be because the shoe impressed me).
-They are comfortable, that is certain. The softness of the sole provides great traction, even on wet pavement (which I discovered this morning).
-The lacing system provides for a very secure fit, to include heel placement in the deep cup of the shoe. When I first put these on, (before I laced them up) I thought for sure that I would be sending them back - if my heel is not secure, I will blister terribly which is not something I am prepared to deal with. (My favorite brand Lowa occasionally has a shoe with this issue - changing the insole to a filler (like Superfeet Orange) can solve this problem). However after I laced them up there was no issue. The tether lines around the back of the shoe are not just for looks, they anchor the heel properly.
-The tags call this the "Alpine Fit 100% blister free". Salewa has a manufacturer's guarantee for two years against defects and to be blister free. Pretty bold.
-These shoes come with an 'Ortholite' (Ortholite.com) insole which are surprisingly comfortable. I have no experience with these soles, I usually prefer the stiffness of the Superfeet insole. The Ortholite is very comfortable.
-The laces are slick and there is no resistance in the eyelets, which makes lacing them up a pain. (When you untie them they do loosen right up without 'unlacing' them which can be a plus').
-I prefer a thicker lace to avoid pressure pointing across the top of the foot. There is significant padding on the tongue of the shoe and so far there has not been any issue with this. (Perhaps I just prefer the thicker laces).
Initial Impression: I think these shoes are very well made and are very comfortable. I don't foresee any issues as the craftsmanship and production are excellent. Even if you are looking for a casual sneaker for a night out, I think these are a great choice.
These were not just shoes that had been tried on before. These shoes had dried mud still sticking to the worn soles. The upper portion of the shoe had actual wear creases deeply ingrained in the material. A younger sibling would have called these shoes "hand me downs".
The shoe seller: LIVE TO PLAY not only sucked on this sale but they had had to really inhale hard to suck this much! Stay away from LIVE TO PLAY
Unfortunately they are a bit shorter in length. So next time, if there should be a next time, I will order them a half inch larger.
Despite that, the shoe is very much the same as the Firetail 3. I wear it in the office. When they are a bit wornSalewa Men's Wildfire Approach Shoe,Chlorophil/Cactus,10 M US out, they will end
up as hiking shoes for shorter and easier walks and good weather, just like their predecessors.
