Description of Salewa Men's Wildfire Edge Mid GTX Approach Shoe - 8971 poseidon/cactus


Approach shoe with gaiter

A men’s mid-cut tech approach shoe with innovative Switchfit system and Pomoca sole that combines climbing precision with walkability.

Walk in, climb with precision and walk out in comfort – in different weather conditions and all in one shoe. The Wildfire Edge Mid GORE-TEX® is a unique technical solution for alpinists, climbers and scramblers who want an approach shoe with enhanced climbing performance. It’s based on the smart and simple Salewa Switchfit system that allows you to quickly adapt the fit from hiking to climbing, by offering compression at the toes similar to a climbing shoe. Simply tighten the laces to pull your foot forward into the toebox. Once you’ve finished climbing, return the laces to the original position, for a wider toebox and more hiking comfort.

To further enhance climbing precision, the Wildfire Edge’s insole also incorporates an Edging Plate below the side of the foot and big toe – for additional, directional stiffness – while the rest of the insole remains flexible and responsive to ensure good comfort and a natural rolling motion. The 11 mm drop is also ideal for fast mountain approaches or superior grip when traversing. The lightweight, flexible mid-cut upper is made of high-quality 1.6 mm suede leather, while the Exa Shell provides enhanced torsional stability and works together with the 3F System to wrap the foot for better flexibility, fit and support. Inside, the GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort lining is durably waterproof and breathable, so that precipitation and groundwater are kept out, but perspiration can easily escape from your feet. For greater protection against snow, scree and trail debris, there is a stretch gaiter.

You can also customize the inside volume, thanks to the MFF+ footbed. Underfoot, the Wildfire Edge Mid GORE-TEX® is equipped with the Pomoca Speed MTN Pro sole which uses Pomoca butyl compound rubber for better grip and friction on rock in both dry and wet conditions. The sole has a precision climbing zone at the toe, good edging performance and well-spaced tread blocks for improved traction on soft ground, such as mud and grass.

Key Features of Salewa Wildfire Edge Mid GTX Approach Shoe

  • 3F System: The trademark SALEWA 3F System connects the instep area of the shoe with the sole and heel; ensuring flexibility, support and the correct fit where it’s needed.
  • Climbing Lacing: Climbing Lacing offers accurate adjustment in the toe-area of your shoe, giving you more support and performance when tackling technical terrain.
  • EXA-Shell: The EXA Shell grid structure wraps around your upper foot, providing you with a precise fit and perfect frontfoot balance. The shell also minimizes abrasion of the upper material.
  • Gore-Tex: GORE-TEX® fabrics lead the industry of technical clothing in the provision of waterproof protection, breathability and durability. The GORE-TEX® membrane is completely water- and windproof and at the same time allows sweat to pass through it. The membrane is formed by pores (over 9 billion pores per square inch) which are 20,000 times smaller than a drop of water, but 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule preventing water penetration and helping the skin breathe. Resistance tested in the lab, simulating the most extreme atmospheric conditions.
  • Ortholite® footbed: Durable cushioning, high breathability and unique moisture management. The lightweight, washable OrthoLite footbed ensures unparalleled comfort.
  • Anti-rock heel cup
  • Pomoca outdole
  • Switchfit adjustment
  • Anti-debries stretch gaiter
