Published by under Gear,Reviews

Salewa GTX Mid Hiking Boot Review For the bulk of the spring and summer I have lived in these shoes. I love them and they love me back. I decided on this shoe based on a couple of factors. They struck a nice balance between a low-top approach shoe with sticky rubber and a high-top […]
