Johnwrote a review of Salomon Comet 3D GTX Backpacking Boot - Men's on April 13, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I'm very disappointed: after hiking in these for less than six months the left boot began pinching the outside of my foot to an excruciating degree during an 11 mile hike. I'm still not sure what happened, but I'm out $200. My only advice is to try on multiple pairs of hiking boots before settling on one, and if in doubt be willing to spend a little to take care of your feet - you won't regret it.
In the future I'm willing to spend more if necessary and have the return policy of one year through REI vs. backcountry which requires one month.
