    Quality Concern

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 13

    Out of the box seemed like a nice comfortable lightweight boot. At first lace-up, rivet broke on lower eyelet rendering boot useless. Buyer beware, check product reviews on multiple sites!

    Amazing boot, does not weigh you down

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    These boots are super lightweight and very rugged. They will stand up to me waiting in ankle deep water without getting a single bit of moisture on my feet. Awesome boot that does not weight you down.

    Comfy Out of the Box

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    This is my first pair of real hiking boots and they have been great. No real tests yet, but they fit true to size and were immediately comfortable. Good traction walking on snow/ice/slush, and as a Florida transplant in Colorado this helps me not walk like a scared toddler. Two thumbs up.

    Awesome boots!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs small

    I have loved these boots. They are more comfortable than running shoes from the first day. They break in without even noticing. I wear them everyday at work or play. You cannot go wrong with this boot. This is my second Salomon and I love them.

    Great boots!

      I?ve gone on three hikes with these boots now. The break-in period was a little rough, so allow yourself some ?training? time, but now they are perfectly comfortable. They have plenty of cushion and support the ankle well. Tied tightly, they keep my heel in place to prevent blisters. The material seems to breathe and my feet stay dry. I?m a casual hiker, and for the price, these boots are great.

      Really like mine.

        These boots were the "right out of the box" comfort category. When I put them on it was one of those "oh, yea this is it" moments.
        Comfort aside a couple of things I think are worth mentioning that even Salomon doesn't put forth. One is that there is a rock plate built into them between the outer sole and mid sole. That is very important to me as I hike on very rocky, volcanic and steep terrain. My previous boots I could feel every rock. They were a European name brand boot that I couldn't wait to get out of.
        Secondly that first large open lace hook has anti slide teeth built into them. That allows you to lace the forefoot looser than the top, thereby keeping your toes from jamming without over tightening the lowers.
        Lastly there is a hard diamond/pyramid shaped stud in the center of the heel sole which acts as a brake on extreme downhills.
        These are nice boots and in my opinion unsung heros.

        Great boots

          Recently exchanged my Vasque Clarions for these and couldn't be more satisfied. Very light, great support, sure-footed traction, and my feet have stayed dry through the last week of solid rain (including biking downhill). I have lived in these boots for the past week and there has been no break in time, uncomfortability, or hot spots! I wouldl recommend these boots. I wear a 10.5 and they seem true to size.

          Great value

            Only had these boots for a few days but they are much better than expected and hopefully they will last as long as the other Solomon shoes that I've owned on the past. For light boots the ankle support is great. The only minor improvement I'd like to see is a more aggressive heal counter for downhill traction.

            nice boat

              i bought these right before winter last year and used them constantly through out the winter season. I hiked countless miles and made it a point to step into streams, mud puddles, slush or anything that might show a weakness in the boot. I was very impressed that my feet stayed dry no matter what. Pretty much these boots are the best i ever owned.

              I'm a new backpacker, and my anticipated trips in the near feature will be relatively warm weather, Sierras terrain, 2-4 day, 35ish pounds load max. Will these be sufficient? Will these even be necessary. I carried about 32 pounds on trail runners through Emigrant Wilderness recently, and at the end of 8 miles my feet were dying.

              These will definitely be more comfortable than trail runners. If you dont feel like you really need the ankle support then you could get the little brother to this

              Feel free to hit me up at or 801-736-6398.

              How are these boots for hot arid desert...

              How are these boots for hot arid desert hiking and trekking in AZ?

              Best Answer

              For hiking in a hot desert, I would strongly recommend you get a non-goretex boot. Goretex is going to be uncomfortably stuffy and warm, and the amount of suede on that boot is going to make your feet overheat like none other. I would strongly recommend a boot like the Merrell Ventilator, check it out here:

              All the mesh makes it great for hot climates--it breathes well and will take good care of your feet. Hope this helps!

              Would you recommend this boot as a multi-day...

              Would you recommend this boot as a multi-day backpacking boot? The Salomon website categorizes it as a "Classic Backpacking" the sole rigid enough, and is the rest of the boot supportive enough, for 4-6 days with 50 pounds? I weigh 190. Also, what does technically mean by "hiking", "trekking", and "backpacking" (in the recommended use category)? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

              Best Answer

              Justin, these might work but you would be pushing the limits of this boot carrying that much weight. You might want to look at a more rugged backpacking boot that offers more support for your 50 pound load. The terms are not reliable and are often labeled incorrectly.
