Sweet shoe overall. At first was hesitant about the toe box, because it was bigger than I was used too, I have a narrow foot, but that hasn't been a problem for me overall. I found it to be super comfy both uphill and downhill. Also the lacing system seemed weak, but have held up quit nicely. Nice adjustability within the lacing system which makes for a personalized fit. Great all around traction. Overall, a nice breathable, light weight shoe. My first, but not my last Salomon.
