    Details

    A tough, all-weather shoe built for high-speed hiking.

    When you're traversing ridges and bagging summits at high speeds, pull on the Salomon Men's XA Pro Mid GTX Hiking Shoe and navigate variable terrain with ease. The waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex membrane and water-resistant textile upper keeps water from getting to your foot, and the gusseted tongue and mudguard keep pesky debris from getting into your boot. A removable ortholite footbed provides superior comfort over rough and rugged terrain, and Salomon's Quicklace system lets you get a comfortable and secure fit quickly. The Contragrip sole mobs through mud and gunk and bites when you're navigating exposed and rocky traverses.

    Great addition to the boot camp.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    I picked these up before a backpacking trip, down to the Cedar Mesa area in Southern Utah. I tried on some Salewas and some Scarpa backpacking boots, however I wouldn't have had ample break-in time. Then I saw these babies, and remembered how much I love Salomon shoes. They fit my feet, last for a ton of miles, and are just techy enough. The boot has a Gore-Tex membrane, which came in handy while walking through wet canyons. The sole was suited for the rocky terrain and shed mud quickly. And the lightweight construction made for almost zero painful break-in time. Even while wearing a 60lb pack, the boots provided plenty of stability.

    My only minor gripe with these, would be that they are a little tough to side on...The gusseted tongue and the closed lacing system, make for a bit of a wrestling match when putting these on.

    Overall, super happy with them, even though they do not appear to be a "true" backpacking boot.

    Good Mid Weight boot

    My only complaint is the foot opening is small and I have to really stomp by foot to get them on. Otherwise, once on, they feel great and run pretty true to size. I'm not sure yet that I like the lacing system. It stays tight but I'm not sure what to do with the excess.

    Love these boots

    I got these boots as a gift before Christmas and I've probably put about 30 miles on them so far. They were comfortable right out of the box. The lacing system is great and quickly adjustable. I have a high arch and these have been very comfortable so far. Waterproof works great (it's gore-tex after all). I've even done some trail running in these boots and they were great, if not a little heavy. Would definitely buy these boots again.

    Way too narrow and tight.

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small

    I ordered these a 1/2 size bigger as they didn't come in wide sizes. Lots of room (too much really) in the toe. Even so they were extremely narrow and frankly un wearable. They seem like very high quality and lightweight hiking boots. However I couldn't walk 100 yards in them. They need to do wide sizes like 99% of the shoe makers in the world.

    Decent... kind of.

    First off, let me say that I had the last generation of these boots. I feel like I can still give a review of them, though I hope some things have changed. Right off the bat, these boots rubbed on both ankle bones horribly. There was a seam that came together in the Gore-Tex right on that part of my ankle and it felt terrible. I took them to REI and got them pounded flat, problem fixed. I took them out on a few short hikes and they felt great. The "waterproofing" was suspect from the start. I used some Seam-Sealer to paste up some exterior seams that I thought might be leaking, and that seemed to solve that issue. Recently though, the Gore-Tex across the tops of the boots soak right through. I used these boots for hiking and also for backpacking (though that is not the intended use for them I know). I put about 250-300 miles of trail on them in two summers, many of those with a load on my back. I am a big guy, 250lbs., so there was probably about 300lbs. with a pack put on these things. They didn't stand up to it well. The tread wore out quickly, pieces of the sole/tread broke away from one another, the little tab on the heel came loose from the footbed... thank goodness for super glue and Seam-Grip. Recently they also developed holes at the flex point in the toe area in the exterior fabric.

    The positive is that they were comfortable as heck during all of that! From the Grand Canyon to Denali, from Manitou Island to state parks, these boots were certainly comfortable. They breathed well, held up to some abrasions decently, washed clean, and looked good at least. The pitfalls seem to be in quality and materials. Even though they aren't backpacking boots, I feel that they should have held up a lot better, especially since so many of those breakdowns occurred with low mileage on them. I have had two other pairs of Salomon footwear (Tech Amphibians and running shoes) and both have had some sort of issues with the tread/sole falling apart. Fix your issues, Salomon!
