SIG SAUER - Never Settle

Outdoor Retailer – Salewa

We’ve covered most of Salewa’s boot offering in the past so we thought it would be cool to mention a couple of their shoes.

Ramble GTX


New for Spring 14, the Ramble is Italian made with Italian leather and the new cutting edge Gore-tex Surround Membrane. This offers something never seen before; a waterproof breathable sole. The membrane is protected by a Kevlar mesh weave.


You’ll definitely see some Mountain DNA in the Ramble GTX, but it’s a casual shoe. There’s lacing to toe, I can’t believe that they are offering an Italian made shoe with Italian leather and a Gore membrane for only $149 retail. Amazing!


Firetail Evo

Redesigned for 2014, the four-year-old Firetail was Salewa’s tech approach shoe. They’ve lightened it a bit and updated to the new three-piece insole. Offered in Gore-tex and non-Gore-tex models in two colorschemes each.

    GEOX company made memrane outsole boots long time before this

      Thank for that Stephan. Several companies have integrated the Gore Surround technology in lifestyle shoes. The Salewa application is the first in the outdoor space.

    It will be interesting to see how the Gore membrane in the sole holds up. I like the idea, but durability might be a problem even with the Kevlar.

    IT would be nice if they would make a damn 14
