If only these fit better

    I really wish I could have kept these shoes. I put in about 20 miles of hiking through Zion, Arches, and the Wasatch Mountains, but, invariably, the top lace mount would dig into my foot—-a discomfort I wasn't willing to endure.

    This is a solid, lightweight shoe that performed very well in nearly all aspects (traction, puddles, etc.) except for the foot digging and a propensity for pinky-toe blisters.

    I ultimately returned them and went with the Columbia Pagora Hiking Shoe...thanks BackCountry for a seamless exchange!

    great for wet, rocky terrain

      I just finished a 4 day trek on the Inca Trail in Peru and these shoes were perfectly suited for the task. Great traction on the rocky and sometimes wet terrain and plenty of comfort and support while I carried a 25 lb pack roughly 8 miles/day.

      I can't comment on longevity yet but they show no signs of deterioration after my first thrashing.

      Disappointing quality

        I purchased these shoes to replace a pair of Salomon Elios LTR shoes that I'd had for over 2 years and while they are every bit as comfortable as my old shoe, the quality of this shoe is not nearly as good. After less than one month of moderate wearing the stiching in the rear heal came away.
        Hats off the Backcountry who sent out a replacement pair of shoes straight away. Hopefully these will stand the test of time...we'll see.

        Unanswered Question

        I've had multiple Salomon hiking boots in...

        I've had multiple Salomon hiking boots in the past and always wore a size 11. Do the hiking shoes run true to size? I often fall between size 10.5---11 depending on themake of shoe.

        Does this shoe compare to the Lowa Renegade...

        Does this shoe compare to the Lowa Renegade GTX low ?Tks. RK

        RK,Renegade II - Gortex (waterproof), 3/4 synthetic shank (stiffness), all leather and metal eyelets (durability and abrasion resistance). Elios - Gortex XCR (waterproof and more breathable), 12.6 ounces (vs 2 lb 2 oz. lighter), mesh uppers (cooler).If you want something for day hikes that can handle a little weight on your back the Lowa will work perfectly. If you want something you can do day hikes with, prefer lighter weight gear, and want something you can wear in town, the Salmon is the way to go. Mahalo, Sumo
