Streamlined and technically sound, the Salewa Hike Trainer is ready for tough climbs but low-key enough for around town. The lacing system stays snug while forming to the foot; sticky rubber edging aids tricky scrambles. A nubuck upper keeps it soft near the ankle while a Gore-Tex membrane wards off the elements.
