Design Features

Features

The Rapace GTX is a boot for via ferratas and summer mountaineering, featuring a hard-wearing fabric and nubuck upper plus waterproof GORE-TEX® protection.

Its (semi-automatic) crampon-compatible Vibram Mulaz sole offers effective edging stability, grip on rock and traction in mixed mountain terrain. The GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort lining delivers optimized climate comfort should the weather close in on you and there’s a full rubber rand for protection against rock and scree.

Salewa's 3F System, Climbing Lacing and MFF+ footbed ensure that the Rapace GTX fits perfectly around your foot, providing the Alpine Fit 100% blister free guarantee.
  • Vibram® Mulaz outsole
  • Mid stiff nylon insole with fiberglass reinforcement
  • GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort to keep your feet dry
  • Cordura, 360° full rubber rand upper and 1.8mm nubuck
  • Cleansport NXT® for odor control and freshness
  • Innovative multi-layer MFF+ allows for more customization on the forefoot by using two interchangeable layers to accommodate a greater range of foot shapes and sizes
  • Climbing Lacing technology
  • 3S Combi System; multi-density microporous rubber midsole for ultimate edging performance on rocks
  • TPU insert at heel for perfect compatibility with semi-automatic crampons
  • 3F system's flexibility to an athlete is like fuel for an engine
  • Adaptive memory foam closes all gaps between your heel and your shoe to provide a snug fit and support the ankle and lower foot

Salewa Blister Free

How the SALEWA Blister Free Guarantee works:

SALEWA footwear is designed with comfort in mind, and we have numerous independent features which work together to help prevent blisters. A good three-dimensional fit is achieved through half-sizing in length and a multi-fit footbed that allows for volume customisation. The climbing lacing and 3D system (lacing zones) allow precise forefoot control without compromising comfort. The 3F "Y" Frame System supports the entire foot and thus reduces friction thanks to unmatched heel retention.

With the right choice of socks, proper fit and lacing, and appropriate use of the footwear, SALEWA guarantees our footwear to be 100% Blister Free.

This guarantee is valid for any customer who meets the above criteria, and returns the shoes withing TWO WEEKS of the original purchase date.

Excellent summer moderate mountaineering boot; narrow to medium feet.

Dave Brash, 20/11/17

I don't do much alpine climbing these days, but took some friends up the NW Ridge of Aspiring in March, and couldn't face torturing my feet with my old plastics so bought a pair of these for the occasion. They were absolutely brilliant for the purpose - good grip on rock, both on slabs and edges, and my old Salewa strap on crampons fitted securely. For moderate routes such as this they were perfect. The big comfort test was the 10 hour walk out the next day (we had flown in to Bevan Col). My wife's feet were suffering by the end of the day, and I would be careful with the fit; if you have narrow to medium feet these are great boots.
