Brian B.wrote a review of Salomon X Ultra Mid 2 GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on January 16, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I am not a big fan of boots in general, and prefer to hike in running sneakers or approach shoes. However, sometimes a boot is the best option... and this is a great pair, feels more like a high top trail-runner. For me these required almost no break in. They performed well on a 4 day backpacking trip in really challenging conditions in Patagonia and kept my feet dry with no blisters.
