Scoboawrote a review of Salomon Solaris Low Day Hiking Shoe - Men's on December 2, 2004
To start out I love the shoes including fit and function. As usual with the last 3 pair of "hiking" boots that I have gotten the strings that come with the shoes are the hard slick round nylon type that as the description implies are almost impossible to keep tied. It is hard to enjoy a walk if you have to either retie your shoes every 100 yrds or tie them in knots to keep them tied. A choice of strings, even with a small fee, would be a great alternitive.
