Salewa

Salewa is a company founded in Munich in 1935, specialising in the production of leather and fabric articles, as well as being the first to produce backpacks with frames made of steel tubes and ski poles made from the wood of hazelnut trees. In the winter of 1952, thanks to the growing demand for ski poles, Salewa entered the sports market.

Their assertion in the mountaineering sector happened in 1955 with the Andean expedition on the Cordillera Blanca sponsored by Salewa. Ice equipment, ice axes and crampons became part of Salewa's range of mountaineering products. In 1962, a fully adjustable lightweight crampon was conceived and manufactured and Salewa affirmed its supremacy for the first time in the field of mountain and outdoor equipment. 1978 marked a great change: the range of products was expanded with the production of functional clothing. In 1979, Salewa grouped all its products under one single logo: branded with the Salewa eagle, godmother of the unparalleled quality of their products.

After the birth of Salewa in Austria in 1982, an international structure and a dense distribution network of products was created throughout Europe, in the United States, in Japan and even in New Zealand. The Italian importer Heiner Oberrauch of the Oberalp group acquired the Salewa brand, leading it to success.

With the start of the new millennium, the Salewa brand entered a new dimension, as shown by the creation of its own group of athletes and the Salewa alpineXtrem international team, in addition to the constant development and improvement of its main products.

In the winter of 2009-2010, the brand launched a line of clothing, with the aim of establishing itself in the world markets: alpineXtrem Pro, designed by and for professionals, for extreme, daily and professional use in the mountains.

In 2011 Pomoca, the leading Swiss manufacturer of ski skins, joined the Salewa group of brands at the beginning of the year, reinforcing their role as market leader in cross-country skiing. The merger of these two traditional companies and family management was a clear sign that the concepts of security, trust and reliability in the mountain would continue to be reinforced in the future.

In 2012 Wild Country became a part of the Group, meaning the South-Tyrolean company specialising in mountain sports and the leading British manufacturer of rock climbing equipment sealed a new synergy of expertise in this discipline. The name Salewa has been synonymous with alpine specialisation for more than 75 years. The acquisition of Wild Country allows the mountain sports brand to incorporate the deep expertise of the British company in the world of climbing, in addition to its many years of experience in mountain sports.

Salewa Rapace GTX boots red orange
Great boots.
I'm a huge fan of Salewa products and this is the fourth pair so far. These Rapace GTX boots are basically a stiffer version of the Mountain Trainer boots. I'm still breaking them in, but they are instantly comfortable and I look forward to putting them through the paces this hunting season.

Salewa Rapace GTX Mountaineering Boots Black
Break them in!
Good sturdy boot. Stiff for long hikes especially the first time out. Good for a front strap style crampon and very aggressive tread design. Hiked the Tetons and then climbed the Full Exum route in them and I would not recommend doing that. (Use climbing or approach shoes) The boots are sloppy on rock with not a lot of feel. But they do support your ankles when trudging through a lot of loose rock. They’re also slippery on rock when wet. I did get blisters on my heals and toes after only about an hour of hiking. I wasn’t supper happy with that for obvious reasons. However the quality of the boot is really good and should hold up very well over time. I think they will do really well for shorter hikes and ice climbing.

Salewa Ultra Flex GTX Trail Running Shoes Black
I Love Salewa hiking shoes
I currently own 5 pairs of Salewa hiking shoes and Love them all as they fit and feel very comfortable, roomy and waterproof for wet or creek crossing hikes. Also, I live in the United States and originally thought it would take a while for delivery since ordering from Spain, but I was wrong as Deporvillage expedited my shipment and I received my shoes within a week. Excellent order, turnaround and delivery time!!!
