Salewa Boot Hooks

Posted by Professional Tree Climber on 7/1/2015 to Tree Climbing Gear
Have you ever had your heel come loose in your boot when hiking or climbing? A quick and easy way to ensure that your heel doesn’t lift is with a boot tying technique called the “The Heel Lock.” Something cool about the Salewa Mountain Trainers is the bottom lace hook on the boots. These hooks are much tighter than the top hooks because they are meant to grab your laces and not let them go.
