These boots are made....
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
For walking, hiking...heck, I even did a little "running" in them. It was one of those chasing the sunset (like dracula) scenes. "I must get to the campsite before dark".
I am in love with Salomon products. I have been ever since I bought my first Ultra Trail shoes last year. The uppers fit perfectly, lacing holds well, and I have zero blisters or hotspots. And I love that they come in a color other than pink. Although I like pink, I don't want it on my feet!
These boots do fit a little large (I wear a 9 in them, though my feet size as 9.5). But, if you've worn Salomon before, that's not unusual.
A great present for her!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift, but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I bought this for "her" after buying my own pair.
She actually first recommended this boot after trying it out at a store but thought it wasn't a necessity. I then bought mine to test her testinomial and she is right. Goretex, 4D chasis, and mudguards really help keep your feet in good shape on hikes. The boot feels good and is light that it makes me want to run in them. As a gift, I figured this will be great because she climbs as well.
It is not as light as the cosmic, but the extra weight helps justify it's durability.
Got Problem Feet? Get These Boots
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
After two foot surgeries last fall, I was on my usual quest to find supportive pain free hiking boots. I needed some that were wider through the toes but narrower in the heel. I tried on many top brands, even bought one that I had to return. If it was pinching in the house, I knew it would hurt on the trail. These Salomen's were recommended to me, so I thought I'd give them a try. They felt good right out of the box, and really good on the short mostly downhill hike I tried them out on. I like the ankle support, the ample room in the toe box without being sloppy, the stay tight laces, and the snug fitting heel. No smashed toes on the downhill either. Based on that I wore them next on a nine mile hike, and they were great. No blisters, no hot spots, just great supportive boots. Stayed dry on the stream crossing too. I did order my regular size, which fit just right. Plus Backcountry has them at a nice price. Looking forward to wearing them with no worries on our camping trip to Glacier National Park. My problem feet and I are very happy with these boots.
Wicked Awesome Boots
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have two pair of these, one I keep at work and one at home. I love them so much I bought my husband a pair for his birthday. In all 3 instances they fit perfectly out of the box with nearly no break-in time needed. I am a forester and put many miles doing field work on my boots so comfort and support are key. They are a bit wide across the toe and if you have bunions like me, you will greatly appreciate the extra room. My husband does not have the same issue but still loves the fit and comfort. (I listened to him complain about his old ones for over a year) One nice feature that I love is the locking laces, it allows you to easily tighten them and keep them snug even if you don't want to lace them all the way up. The ankle support is fantastic as well. The only one thing that I will note is that I usually wear a 6.5 women's but ordered the boots in a 7 (mainly due to the pounding my toes get during a steep down hill trot in the Adirondacks.) My husband usually wears a 9.5 but he ordered a 9. We both feel the size we got was the right one,not sure if that is helpful or not but I figured I'd mention it. My suggestion is to order your usual size to start with. (we both found them at a local retailer and tried them on before ordering from backcountry.com- gotta respect their guarantee, can't beat that!)
Great boots, fit is slightly large
I'm very satisfied with these boots. Not a single blister after spending two weeks hiking around the Schell Creek mountains in Nevada with very little break-in ahead of time. Since they're not full leather I was skeptical about how well the Gore-Tex would keep out water, but my feet stayed dry through thunderstorms when the rest of me was soaking wet. I love the lace-lock feature at the ankles, and the roomier toe box-- I have skinny ankles and slightly wider toes, so the fit was perfect to give me extra toe room yet keep my ankles secure. The sizing seems to run larger than other brands I have tried; I usually get an 8 in hiking boots, but got my normal size 7.5 in these and they were perfect. Highly recommend them!
Great Boots and no Break In Time!!
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My husband and I had planned a trip to New Zealand - the first portion being a hunting trip - so I needed a good pair of good hiking boots. In the past I've worn a popular brand for men based in Oregon - and even though they claim to make a women's boot - they will not change the 'last' they make them on which is narrow. I had purchased Salomon in the past and did like them - so I decided to try this pair. I did get the brown (not sure why Salomon would make a blue boot) - so it would coordinate with both hunting clothes and hiking clothes. They were immediately comfortable and never gave me any of that pinching feeling I usually get at the bottom of my foot due to a narrow boot. No rubbing anywhere - I am so impressed!!! The guys at BackCountry were great at getting them to me quickly as my time was running out!
Salomon Quest 4D GTX Backpacking Boot -
Great, Tough and Well Designed
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Initially I was skeptical because I have never owned a pair of Salomon boots, but now all I have to say is good things about them. I have worn these day hiking and backpacking, they have kept my feet dry in the creek crossings and walking in the snow. The feature I really like is the grasp hook for the shoe laces, once you tighten the lace and hook them it stays tight while you tie the upper lace. This feature keeps your heel in place so these is no slipping and is a great design. I found these boots true to size with decent room in the toe box.
how do these boots hold up in the snow?
how do these boots hold up in the snow?
The Salomon Quests aren't insulated so they won't be as warm a mountaineering boot or snow boot. The Gore-Tex liner at the very least will keep you dry, although not necessarily warm. Paired with thick socks they do great for snowy hikes, I guess it just depends how extreme you might get, they're not crampon compatible (no welts, no full shank). I've found the soles to do great in mud, I wouldn't suspect snow to pose any problem. I throw my pair in the trunk during the winter in case and figure if I got stuck in bad weather or need to push the car in terrible weather I'll have sturdy, waterproof boots.
These boots do size a little large. I am a size 7 and normally like to go one size larger in hiking shoes but 7 1/2 worked great for me. I broke them in by doing a 14 mi hike, and only got a small blister on the back of my left ankle (the moleskin I used moved down my shoe.) So these boots are primed for my hike up Mt Whitney next month. I was debating whether or not to go with my day hiking boots but decided to go with these Salomon boots to get a little more ankle support.
can't give it 5 stars yet as i haven't had the chance to hike in it. But it has a full toe box and feels much more substantial than Keen, the only other boot i could find as comfy for a foot with a neuroma. Runs a full size larger than my normal size so go down. Backcountry really worked with me to find these babies.
This boot is the most comfortable high-top boot I have ever owned and will ever own. It is very lightweight, but still has the support needed when carrying a heavy backpack over variable terrain. I wore these boots all summer long hiking through lots of muck, mud and water and they never soaked through- good waterproofness. The best part about this boot is that it does not have a super stiff sole like most high-top boots I have worn in the past, so the flexibility allows for better gripping over rocks and I don't feel like I have Frankenstein feet when I hike. I always got foot pain in boots that were too stiff and felt like my foot was in a steel box of a shoe, but with the light-weight and flexibility of this shoe, my feet can flex and respond more naturally to the terrain underfoot.
