New Boots= happy feet!
I got the GTX Outlines for a recent backpacking trip. I was a bit worried since I didn't have time to break them in, but honestly they were super comfortable and didn't cause any hot spots after 30 plus miles over the course of three days. Having the Gore-tex option was also nice since there was a few shallow spots of water to cross, in which my feet stayed dry. The ankle support I would say is average, but did the job. The grip was amazing, but I would say Salomon is known for that!! One thing that I do need to mention is that I wouldn't say they are meant for long backpacking trips. They are more of a day hiker boot, but it's not to say they can't do the job of a long backpack. Overall I would definitely recommend these boots. One last thing to add is I also love the Urban look and feel of the boots. They are great for day hikes, urban walking, and the short to medium backpacking trip.

Great lightweight boot!
Love these boots! Originally ordered the low profile version and recently ordered the high top for longer hikes. Have only logged around 30 miles but already can tell they will last.

A slight upgrade from the Merrill Moabs
(3.5 out of 5) Right off the bat, the boots are very light weight. They lasted for about six months and they are about done. I wore them regularly, but I feel as though they did wear out quick and I could start to feel every rock while hiking through Sanora desert trails throughout Arizona. I liked the boot, but the soles did not last, however the uppers maintained well. the boot performed well; it is definitely a light weight hiker meant for mild trails.

You need these, you just don't know it
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
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.
