The MS Vertical Pro by SALEWA is the newest masterpiece from the SALEWA footwear division in Montebelluna in northwest Italy. This center of excellence sets new standards when it comes to mountaineering. The Vertical Pro is yet another example. SALEWA’s alpine competence together with broad, industry-specific expertise headquartered in Montebelluna has come together to bring you this boot. The result is a lighter-weight Pro boot for winter alpine endeavors and icefalls.
Roger Schäli, member of SALEWA’s alpineXtrem Team, explains his personal expectations for his footwear: "My pro footwear for winter alpinism in mixed terrain or on vertical walls of pure ice must combine light weight and insulation. In addition, I expect the ability to place my foot precisely, especially when using crampons.“ Footwear designers at SALEWA have succeeded in fulfilling these demands with the Pro Line. After two years of intensive R&D plus testing by world-class athletes, the Vertical Pro was born – just one in a complete Pro Line of mountaineering boots that reflects the results of this development expertise.
Attributes of the Vertical Pro that speak for themselves include the "superfabric“ used in the uppers made of Perwanger suede leather. In addition the boot has a 360-degree full rubber rand to keep out snow and ice, as well as an absolutely waterproof GORE-TEX lining plus an additional aluminum membrane that provides outstanding insulation from the cold. The Vibram-SALEWA Pro outsole that guarantees maximal grip has been designed especially for use on snow and ice
