The best of both worlds.
With the lightweight design and comfort of a running shoe, and the support and performance of a hiking boot, the Salomon Outline Mid GTX Hiking Boot gives you the best of both worlds so you can make the most of your time on the trail. It's flexible, slim, and close in weight to a running shoe, but gives you mid-rise support and a slew of other trail features. A Gore-Tex membrane keeps your feet dry for rainy days and river crossings, a protective toe cap keeps your forefoot protected from unexpected roots and rocks, while a Contragrip outsole with 5mm lugs gives you dependable traction for steep slopes.

- Q & A
You need these, you just don't know it
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 11
- Height: 6'1"
- Weight: 175lbs
These boots filled a big void for me and are now my go to for just about everything. The Salomon Quest 4D has been my do everything trail boot but are often overkill for everyday use. The Outline gives you incredible versatility allowing me to wear them to the office and head straight to the trail after I finish for the day.
The GTX liner keeps you feet dry while still giving you great breath-ability. I find that they also work a little better with micro spikes because of the trail runner profile.
Light weight and comfy
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Very supportive for only a 3/4 boot. Light weight is great, but not the most robust sole so can feel the rocks on the trail. First hike on these was a 12 mile backpacking trip and they didn't give me any blisters. Gore tex is nice, keeps the feet dry.
These boots are light weight and well constructed. I have worn these on multiple hikes is the Arizona mountains. PROS: lightweight, excellent grip, breathes well, well constructed. CONS: seams on each side of the ankle; I often wear super lightweight ankle socks because my feet have a tendency to get hot. When I wear ankle socks, they rub a raw spot on one of my ankles. If I wear socks above the boot itâs perfectly fine.
The One Shoe You Need For A Weekend Trip
If you have to bring one shoe on a weekend trip where you'll be hiking and hitting the town, this is the shoe for you. As a Salomon employee, I was looking forward to trying out this shoe and was excited when they came in right before a weekend trip to the Tetons. Putting 25 miles in over two days, I had no issues. They're lightweight, breathable, and perfect for wearing straight from the trail to dinner in Jackson.
I'd recommend going down a 1/2 size, i'm normally a 7.5 and wear a 7 in these.
