The Wildfire Edge is a technical approach shoe that can be adapted from hiking mode to climbing mode. Designed together with mountain guides and professional climbers in the Dolomites, the Salewa Switchfit system is as simple as it is smart. Simply lace and tighten the additional eyelet to adjust the fit. This way, you pull your foot forward, compressing your toes similar to a climbing shoe for better edging and smearing and increased security on technical terrain. To convert back to hiking mode, loosen the laces for a roomier toebox and greater hiking comfort.
GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort
Inside the highly abrasion-resistant suede leather and microfibre upper, the thin, extremely breathable GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort membrane provides maximum comfort in a wide variety of climate ranges and protection from wet weather. It keeps your feet dry, while still allowing moisture vapour to escape.
To further enhance climbing precision, the Wildfire Edge’s insole incorporates an additional stiff Edging Plate right under the forefoot climbing zone for extra, directional stiffness, while the rest of the insole remains flexible to ensure good comfort and a natural rolling motion.
The Pomoca Speed MTN sole is made of sticky compound rubber for high friction on smooth rock and slabs. The outsole is designed with special lugs for improved traction on mud and soft terrain. It has been studied to provide effective grip in both wet and dry conditions.
For enhanced torsional stability, the Exa Shell protects and wraps the foot preventing internal slipping. The 3F System wraps the foot to guarantee a good fit, provide support and allow flexibility. Climbing Lacing extends right to the toe for a more precise fit and greater adjustment. There is a Multi Fit Footbed Plus (MFF+) with interchangeable layers so you can fine-tune it to the shape of your foot, supporting our trademark Alpine Fit and 100% blister free guarantee.
A high-performance, adaptable shoe for scrambling and technical approaches.
