It’s offseason here in Big Sky. The G.O. crew has been hard at work setting up for a stellar summer season. We have all kinds of new and exciting merchandise for your outdoor pursuits.
We are psyched to be carrying award-winning footwear from Salewa. As a company, Salewa is best known for it’s backpacking, climbing, and mountaineering equipment. It has created a line of approach and running shoes offering a 100% Blister free guarantee.
That’s right: SALEWA = 100% BLISTERFREE GURANTEE
How can a company be so bold? Salewa’s design focuses on what they call their 3 Functions System. In their words, the system “…offers an unbeatable combination of ankle flexibility, lateral support, and perfection in fit.”
The highlight of the fit system is an anatomically positioned cable that achieves perfect heel retention, which Salewa explains is crucial in blister prevention. Shoes also come with a “Multi-Fit Footbed” which easily adjusts to suit higher or lower-volume feet. Salewa footwear boasts great flexibility while retaining stability. Drawing on climbing shoes as inspiration, laces extend down to the toes for the best fit.
Salewa also drew on its climbing/mountaineering past to develop unique designs that save weight and preserve durability. The line utilizes the industry’s best materials, including Vibram rubbers, Kevlar, and Gore-tex (depending on the model). The result is a line of footwear suitable for a professional mountaineer, a part-time trail runner, and every athlete in between.
Here at Grizzly Outfitters, we are carrying: the Alp Trainer Mid GTX, M’s Fire Vent, W’s Firetail, and M’s MTN Trainer. Other styles are available by special order.
