Its been many years since I bought a pair of hiking boots and based on reviews on this site I finally decided to get the Comet 3D.
They are amazing - absolutely no break in needed, extremely comfortable - (just been dianosed with gout so comfort was essential) no cold toes either while out in the snow and freezing temperatures. I had thick socks and there was still enough comfort space around the toes that my feet didn't feel constrained. The padding under the foot was in just the right places.
I can highly recommend these boots.

I have some pretty horrible and long term planters fasciitis and have found that wearing the salomon boots has really helped. These ones have been the best so far. I wear them all the time. For hiking and every day. If only they made these in evening wear, I'd be all set.

I have tried many hiking boots from Teva to Keen and at the end of the day my feet were always killing me....Not in these ! Rugged, yet comfortable, plenty of toe room and doesn't feel too tight with heavy socks.. Very stable in wet conditions and they will keep your feet dry. I wear them for hiking, hunting and chores, just about anything involving the outdoors these are my go to boot. Love them, well worth the money.

I've had several pair of hiking boots over the years and this pair is, by far, the best pair I've ever owned! From the very first afternoon, these boots have been comfortable and I haven't had a single blister! What a relief, since I was getting blisters every week even though I was alternating between different pairs of shoes/boots prior to getting these boots. I couldn't be happier! I have about 40 miles on the boots at this point. I haven't made it into the mountains yet, but have about 10 miles in fairly hilly terrain.
This boot is lightweight (~1/2 the weight of my previous boots) and very stable. The boots were true-to-size and the toe-box is roomy enough for my foot. I have high arches and these provide good support.

I bought these and another pair of boots at the same time because both boots received good reviews. The Comet 3Ds blew the other boots out of the water. The fit was awesome right out of the box. I will be returning the other brand of boots because they just did not compare in comfort and stability to the Comets.
I'll admit I have a hard foot to fit: narrow heel and wide forefoot. This boot was comfortable out of the box. My memory was I used to size down in Salomon, but after reading the reviews I bought my "normal" shoe size of 6.5 and they fit. At first I was afraid the heel was a bit loose, but that turned out not to be a problem at all. I wore them around the house for a couple of hours and took them on a 12 mile hike today with 2500' of elevation gain. They did amazingly well. Great support, tread is very sure-footed. I did a few sidehill scrambles and mucked through a slimy creek. My feet stayed totally dry. They were truly inspired on the downhill. My toes didn't run up against the end and the extra "cush" in their 3D chassis felt really good after a few miles. Maybe my only nitpick is that, like all goretex lined boots, they get warm. Today was a relatively hot day, though. Close to 80. So they had every right to feel a tad on the warm side.
They lace easily and are easy to slide on and off. A plus if you like to dip your feet in streams at rest breaks.
I have not done a multiday backpack trip in them yet, but they seem to be working for me so far. Salomon boots seem to fit me "true to size," as in, I have had two different pairs now where I fit the 7.5, which is the same size I wear in tennis shoes with thin socks. Other boot brands, I have to get an 8 to accommodate the thick hiking socks.
How do the Salomon Comets W-GTX compare with the Salomon Discovery? I have only seen that Comet is recommended for 1-2 day backpack trips, but what about the Discovery? I saw a review that Discovery was slippery like banana peels, but that's it.
The Comet is a much more stable boot. It is also just a bit wider through the ball of the foot. I have a pair of Discoveries boxed up for a return trip to Amazon. I was trying to save a few bucks, but it's not worth it. I hiked for close to a month in the UK (just got back) with the Comets. Most waterproof boot I've ever owned. Also mud/muck stable.
