    Salomon Cosmic 4D 2 GTX Backpacking Boots - Men's

      Excellent backpacking boot! Very stable and comfortable with a 50 lb pack. Also more durable than first glance at the mess uppers. A few trek pole toe punches proved it. And incredibly light.

      What I appreciate most is that the toe box has more room than any boot I've previously worn. Covering 200+ miles per year, I came to think that wrecked feet were par for the course when reaching camp. Not anymore! Also, I believe boot needs little if any work-in.

      I did add a Dr. Scholls heal support simply for added comfort. The slight rise did nothing to affect my heal position against the back wall of the boot.

      Note: The boot is not the color green shown in the picture. It's lemon-lime. Initially, I thought I'd glow in the dark. That thought quickly subsided. Now I actually like looking down to that bright color while laboring up the mountain.

      Recommendation---- Solid yes!

      Too flexible in toe area.

        Although Salomon advertizes these boots as having a rigid sole that "prevents forefoot flex and fatigue, the area under the toe joints is as flexible as some sneakers. They are no more rigid than Salomon Quest 4D's that cost much less. I've enjoyed my last pair of Salomon backpackers for nearly 10 years for their pronounced rocker and stiffness in the entire sole that protects my inflamed bunions. For those looking for that type of boot, I've found it in the Zamberlan Vioz GT for about the same cost. They are not quite as roomy in the toe box as Salomon, but they minimize flex in the toe. If anyone out there has found any similar boots out there, speak up.

        I have to wear my high dollar no-toe-flex hiking boots - Alico - when I trudge through hard frozen snow...However, I will always prefer my Salomons with toe flex for any other situation. Salomon boots make my flat feet very happy.

        Not the boot I assumed...

          Along the same lines with jac5485087 sweet all around active boot. However, for me the materials seam up to my standards but the assembly is worry some. I live in northeast USA, received my Salomon's in November of 2011. These boots did not endoor the past several months as I would prefer. The longevity of the material connection points in the toe portion especially worry me. Comfort, toughness, design and construction I'm not a boot engineer but I wish the durability equalled the fit..

          Love em'

            Great all around boot. I wore these in Joshua Tree for about 3 weeks, whether it was backpacking, hiking, or even bouldering the boots held up. They're a bit pricy,BUT definitely worth the price. They provide incredibly support, awesome comfort, and are surprisingly light. I can't say enough good things about these boots, once again a great product from Solomon. If anybody has any questions ask away

            Love em'

            You list 2 pound 13 ounces for a pair of the Salomon Quests and 21.87 ounces for a pair of the Salomon Cosmics. That doesn't seem right. Could you give a weight for these boots in a comparable size?


            Does anybody know if there is a difference...

            Does anybody know if there is a difference between the cosmic 4D 2 GTX, and the cosmic 4D GTX? It appears that its just a color thing, but I am unable to find any information.
