SALEWA OUTDOOR -TRADITION, DEVELOPMENT AND A SPECIAL GOAL
The company's goal changed with the development of the Andes backpack in 1955. Salewa developed from a leather goods manufacturer to a producer of accessories and clothing for outdoor sports. This was followed in the 1960s by the development and production of the fully adjustable Classic light crampon. The product is still one of the most successful in the brand's range today. With the invention of the hollow ice screw, Salewa became an international pioneer in terms of innovation and thus one of the most successful suppliers for mountain sports.
Since 1979, the eagle has adorned the logo of Salewa Outdoor and has represented the quality and closeness to nature of the brand ever since. In 1985, the company developed new products in cooperation with Reinhold Messner, which he tested on his expeditions. In 2003, the Munich-based company expanded its range of equipment to include trekking and hiking boots. After many decades of a company history steeped in tradition, the brand still sticks to its goal today: to experience nature while being equipped in the best possible way.
SALEWA SHOES - FROM FUNCTIONAL TO CHIC
The newest business segment of the Munich-based company is outdoor shoes. They mainly differentiate between hiking and trekking shoes. There are also special shoes for climbing or speed hiking. The hiking shoes usually go over the ankle and thus offer better grip on rough paths. Salewa trekking shoes, on the other hand, are ankle-high but offer the same comfort as hiking shoes. The shoes are also breathable and waterproof. In this way, they meet all the requirements that outdoor tours through the mountains place on footwear. The Wildfire GTX model, for example, is a trekking shoe that is suitable for light hiking, mountaineering, climbing and also for leisure. Salewa has developed its own style. They focus on high functionality, yet the shoes are also ideally suited for leisure use.
VIA THE SHOE TO THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT
Salewa not only offers suitable shoes, but also down, soft shell and rain jackets. These are characterised by high temperature ranges, breathability and high wearing comfort. At the same time, the outdoor jackets are water- and wind-repellent thanks to the proven GORE TEX technology. Thanks to the high-quality workmanship of innovative and robust materials, the garments are particularly durable. To complete the outdoor clothing, the brand also produces trekking and hiking trousers.
SALEWA OUTDOOR CLOTHING WITH MANY USEFUL FUNCTIONS
Thanks to the generous pockets, mobile phone, wallet, maps or similar items can be stowed away easily. In contrast to sports trousers of all kinds, Salewa hiking trousers offer more wearing comfort. They are equipped with high-quality functional materials and are therefore water and wind resistant. The company uses several different materials for its outdoor clothing, such as softshell, hardshell, but also thin functional fabrics that are especially adapted to the conditions in the mountains. Therefore, the hiking and trekking trousers as well as outdoor jackets and tops are especially adapted to the special needs of the wearers.
BETWEEN HIGH TECH AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY
The Salewa brand pays as much attention to the environment in its products as it does to its corporate philosophy, to animal welfare in the choice of materials and to the environmental compatibility of its products. The brand attaches great importance to the recyclability of its products. Since environmental protection and nature conservation are close to Salewa's heart, the brand tries to give as much back to the environment as possible. In this way, you not only buy first-class outdoor clothing for your exciting mountain adventures, but you also make a contribution to making the world a little better.
