Fall Preview: Salewa

Italian mountaineering brand Salewa is focused on function for fall ’10. The brand is turning to styles that combine the lightweight and supportive attributes of trail runners with the sticky Vibram outsoles, full rands and toe shape of approach and climbing shoes. The men’s and women’s collection also features the brand’s “Three F” focus on functions: fit, flexibility and support that allows for easy edging and what the brand touts as a blister-free fit. Salewa shoes retail for $109 to $179 ($279 for the men’s Alpine boot) at outdoor independents and Backcountry.com.
