These have been very good boots for me. They've kept my feet plenty warm and are comfortable for winter hiking/snowshoeing. I found them to be true to size.
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I ordered this boot and did not receive the boot that was shown in the picture. They are sold out of this color scheme and have yet (a week later) to change the pic. What I received was next years color scheme, which is all black. No white stitching or grey part at heel. They are also considerably darker black than those shown. Two thumbs up for customer service though, very good.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
They are in that weird category of boot. It is made for snow and wintery conditions. Not overly bulky, but not a normal sized boot either. I use them knocking around whistler and playing in the snow. I still use my Sorels for after skiing, can't beat the foot orgasm of the Caribous after a long day of skiing.
I have a pair of the quest hiking boot how much lighter are the TS WP I wear size 8.5
The fit and feel of the boots are great. A little hard to lace very tight, as the fabric 'eyelets' have a lot of resistance, but it's better for circulation in the cold to be a bit loose, anyway. I spent a few days camping and doing photography in single digit F temps with deep fresh snow and, as expected by their thin walls, they are only warm enough if you keep moving. For prolonged standing still at temps below 10 degrees F, something with more insulation would be better, but these are perfect for snow shoeing and winter hiking when I'll be moving for most of the time. The soles also have good traction on rock and scree.
Great winter boots. Perfect for basically any outdoor activity in the winter from walking to the bus/train, hiking from the car to the resorts for some fresh turns, or even taking the dogs for their daily hike. Fine on ice and great in snow. As for sizing, these tend to run about a half size large. Normally a 10 and ended up going down to a 9.5 to get a better fit. May be not quite as loose if planning to wear them with thick winter socks.
my feet get cold easy. wiil these boots keep my feet warm?/
I love my Salomon Wings GTX trail running shoes - so I did not think twice while ordering the snowtrip as far as sizing was concerned. I wear a size 11.
The snowtrip is a good looking shoe - as I tried it on the first thing noticeable was the toe region had way too much room for my comfort.
First I thought of getting a 10.5 but considering my feet are super cold and I tried this shoe on with 2 pair of thick socks - still my toes were far from being snug. I tightened the laces as much as possible but could not get the boot to fit snug. Much as I liked the looks of the shoe - I am returning the pair. My final choice was Keen summit county.
Does anyone know if these boots run true to size or smaller or larger
Salomon runs true to size
Hope this helps,
This is my "good for anything" boot in the winter - from strolling around the city with ice and snow on the pavement to snowshoeing in cold Scandinavian winters. This boot has lasted through 3 seasons of constant use and is still going strong. What a great deal and two thumbs up for Salomon.
These boots rock! I bought them for snowshoeing, but I've found that they are great for the occasional Seattle snowstorm (I know, I know, all 5 inches of snow...), mid-winter trips out to northeastern Montana, and anything in between. You'll look at the plush lining and think that your feet will fry, but they really don't. I've worn them with Backcountry socks + liner socks and my feet were just right. You'll stay dry, have excellent traction, and they are easily paired with YakTrax in dicier situations.
With a nice soft liner keeping my toes warm at 7am in -20 degree weather in the depths of Ann Arbor, Michigan, these boots are more than I had expected. The high-top style keeps snow out and the liner and the aggressive traction makes it comfortable to walk in confidently. They are somewhat stylish with jeans, keeping you from having to change out of them once you get to work, these cozy boots are perfect for freezing to subfreezing temperatures. I would suggest to those who need boots in temperatures between 20 to -20. If anything above, this boot is too warm; anything below, go for something greater than 200 grams of Thinsulate.
These are the best winter boots I've owned. I had the earlier version (they were kind of a pea soup color) and wore them until they fell apart. I'm glad Salomon went to black.
I wear these daily in the winter and do everything from shovel snow, snow shoe, pheasant hunt, and snowmobile in them. They're warm, very lightweight, and durable. I've recommended them to everyone!
I liked the fit, comfort and look of these boots but ended up exchanging them for Solomon boots (name escapes me now) that were more appropriate to long days in teh snow. These seemed short and like they would not keep feet warm in serious powder. But if you're just schlepping down to the subway on a cold, wet day, these are good.
