Salewa Spring-Summer Speed Hiking Shoe Collection Launch 2023

February 15, 2023

/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – With the Pedroc Pro Mid PTX, Salewa is offering a sporty, versatile and hardwearing boot that will cope with a wide range of scenarios, including more urban contexts. Thanks to its Speed Hiker Pro outsole from friction specialists Pomoca and Ankle Protection System, the Pedroc Pro Mid PTX is an agile, technical shoe engineered to provide safety and surefootedness.

“Speed hiking means moving fast, but setting your own goals. Speed hikers see the mountains as an open-air gym and need lightweight, comfortable and protective footwear. The Pedroc Pro Mid PTX speed hiking shoe is a versatile, fast- moving and robust all-rounder with a sole package that works well on wet mud, grass and steep rocky slopes, yet still offers good energy efficiency thanks to its EVA midsole. The fresh, contemporary design will appeal to progressive mountaineers with an athletic mindset,” says William Starka, Senior Product Manager Footwear & Technical Equipment Salewa.

The high TPU rand and PFC-free Powertex membrane protect the feet and keep them dry in all conditions. Salewa’s proprietary Powertex technology also ensures high breathability for hot, summer days and everyday use.

The Pedroc Pro Mid PTX Boot is designed specifically for speed hikers who enjoy fast- moving mountain activities, yet also want versatile, reliable footwear that doesn’t look out of place downtown. “We combine the clean, engineered design and distinctive speed hiking look with functional details that also highlight the energy efficiency performance that played an important role in its development. And they come with two great lace options: colourful and more neutral, so the user can adapt them according to their own personal preference,” explains William Starka.

Available for mountaineers from specialist retailers from Spring/ Summer 2023. This boot is also available in a low-cut version – the Pedroc PTX Shoe.
