    Begs to be pushed to the limit.

    From sunny days navigating ridges riddled with rocks to soggy days trudging along tree-lined trails, the Salomon Men's Quest 4D 2 GTX Backpacking Boot knows what it takes to make the journey enjoyable. Built for the long haul, this boot is built with enough ankle support to carry a heavy backpack in comfort. The combination leather and textile upper creates a lightweight, breathable fit that handles the rigors of the trail with ease. It's backed by a Gore-Tex membrane that keeps your feet dry whether you're trekking through the rain or powering through creek crossings. Designed with a stable chassis construction, the Quest provides support and great torsional stability as you eat up the miles. Salomon finished this boot with a high traction sole to ensure purchase whether you're navigating packed-out trails below treeline or loose scree in the high mountains.

    Not the best

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Had gave these as a gift for a friend and he said that he liked how sturdy and well made the boots are. He also liked how they looked and they kept his feet dry. But he didn't find them to be very comfortable. No matter what he did he just couldn't get them broken in. They kept rubbing his ankles bad and left him blisters on his ankles and his toes. Good boots, correct sizing, just skipped out on the comfort part.

    He loves them!

    These were bought for my boyfriend and he loves them. We like to go hiking a lot and he will be using these for many camping trips to come. He said they feel supportive and have great grip!


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These boots are my third pair of Salomon shoes/boots (XA Pro and Speedcross 3. The first two were made in Vietnam and while they had some materials issues they were comfortable and have been worth the money. After buying the Quest 4D and going though a break in process of daily wear and a few heavy rucks I noticed the left boot felt as if the foot bed was slanted to the outside. I have not way to tell if this is the case other than foot pain on one side vs the other. I tried three different types of insoles and still had foot pain. Salomon is selling a $75 Walmart quality, Made In China boot as a high end boot for backpacking and hiking. From my experiences with the three pairs of Salomon footwear the company seems to be relying on their past reputation and outsourcing labor and materials to third world countries and not passing on the savings from that outsourcing to their customers.

    Fantastic boot/ worth the price!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    at 5'10 175, I got 9.5.
    I've worn them on about 6 hiking trips, some tough 5-10 mile days. Some just quick 3 mile days. All different types of terrain, including mud,4 inch stream crossing, and tough big granite scrambling.
    The boots performed beyond expectation. they are true to size. Pretty light for all of the support. Super comfortable. Maxed out on a 10mile day and didnt ache one bit. Zero blisters.
    5 day trip in Patagonia really made these boots shine.
    I read some 1 off bad reviews, but just think they bought the wrong size. Just make sure your heel doesnt move and your toes don't touch the front of shoe on descent.

    Amazing. Really happy.

    Haven't had the chance to wear my most recent pair yet but my previous pair served me very well on Kilimanjaro. Can't wait to wear the new pair on my way to Everest Base Camp.

    Boot are fantastic, but a bugger brk in.

    These boots are fantastic and support really well. For me they were a total bugger to break in - painful on the ridges of my feet, but once they are properly broke-in - fantastic. No hesitation recommending them.

    Waterproof Sneakers in a Boots clothing!

    The Best Hiking boot I have ever owned, Absolutely love it, comfortable out of the box, zero to minimum run in period. I have a long Narrow(er) foot size 13. But if I buy narrow it does not fit well, the representative at backcountry com suggested these boots. High Five it was perfect fit. Perfect room in the toe box and some arch support. These fit and feels like sneakers, comfortable for slow run.
    It has the right amount of flexibility, not too stiff but enough protection. I am a heavy backpacker, I carry around 80Lbs, and these boots had no problem. You can feel the rocks and bumps a little bit also it has some cushioning, I like it this way.
    Good grip/traction generally, I had a fair amount upslope and down slopes on rocks and gravel no problem. However, treads are not enough for very slushy muddy conditions.
    The lacing works amazing, it wraps around the foot up till the ankle snuggly.
    Durability and longevity – i have used these on atleast 3 trips each 30 – 40 miles multiday trips, no problem so far. The plastic eyelet does concern me a little bit and even hearing from other ppl that it does wear out quickly. Lets see!!!!!
    Waterproofness - I have not had water entering the shoes yet (crossed a shallow stream, was in a rain)
    Accessories – I tried my Microspikes on just to try, fits perfect. Tried my Grivel crampons (well might not be using it for the climb) not the ideal fit as the heal portion did not sit in perfectly, but would work. Planning to try this for a short snow shoeing trip.
    If you are looking for a lightweight, waterproof, multipurpose hiking/backpacking boots, look no further, this is it. I highly recommend it,

    Very capable boot

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    After a few day hikes and light overnighters I am impressed thus far with these guys. Very supportive without feeling stiff and absolutely lighter than they seem like they should be, also comfy right out of the box. They should easily handle multi-day loads. Some reviewers said they felt bulky but for me they felt nimbler than I thought they would. You do give up some durability to heavier boots, but its worth the trade off to me. A pound off the heel is two off the back!

    Versatile, tough, comfortable, adept

    These boots are really impressive. I've used them mainly for hiking, but also for snow shoeing. After a year of recreational use, they show no signs of wearing. I have slightly wide feet and the boots are comfortable even after wearing them all day. I find the fit tight, but that also makes them less clumsy when trying to rock scramble or negotiate slippery terrain. This boot really gives you a lot of the advantages of a backpacking boot without the weight. As they are described, they are like a backpacking boot that moves like a running shoe. The boots are completely waterproof in my experience. I've used them in deep snow without any issues. They are fairly breathable, but like any leather/GTX boot, it's not going to breath like an athletic shoe. The sole sticks to wet rock well. It also sticks to wet metal and artificial surfaces too. You don't think that's important until you walk indoors after a hike and start sliding around. I haven't had any issues with being cold in the boots until about 10 or below. Between that and the solid waterproofing, I think they are a true four season boot. If I had to pick the downsides, they'd be the following. The soles are trail shoe like and this means you feel the ground very well. This can be nice for agility and speed, but you can also feel the small rocks that you walk across too much at times. They are also not so breathable that I'd want to use them in 80+ weather very long, but I doubt you'll find a backpacking boot that does work well in those conditions. I found the boot broke into my slightly wide feet, but I don't think they'd fit well if you were a EE or wider. Finally, they look technical and can't be passed off as a casual boot like a Danner or Zamberlan or other all leather boot (though they are by no means ugly, just wouldn't wear them casually). Overall, great boot. In the zombie apocalypse, I'd roam the earth in these.

    Quality and Comfort

    It's been years since I bought a boot for anything other than alpine climbing or skiing. With hunting season just around the corner, I decided to pull the trigger on something that would be appropriate for hiking long, loaded miles on trail, and scrambling around in the deep nasty corners where elk live. I've only worn them a few times, but I'm happy with the fit and comfort while hiking. No hot spots or problems so far. I'm a fan.

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 12.
    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 235lbs

    Absolutely love them but they run a little narrow for my foot. Tried to wear around the house and hoped they would stretch a little but no luck. Had to sadly send them back. Couldn't find them in a little wider size.

    Unreal Comfort

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

    These Salomon Quest's are by far the most comfortable boot i've ever worn in general! They fit like a glove, and form to your foot so perfectly with no extra play to spare. The footbed is so comfortable, and because they fit so great they do not slip in the back at all (which is usually the main thing that causes blisters). Super durable boot, with top notch comfort. I've been out hiking and backpacking a handful of times in them now and I still can't believe how comfy they are every time I put them on! They run super true to size (as long as your wearing a thicker style hiking sock), but do not run very wide. So if you have a pretty wide foot they may not be the best fit for you.. Overall, would highly recommend to anyone looking for an awesome hiking/backpacking boot that will offer maximum comfort and still be really durable and supportive.

    Comfortable Boots

    Ended up getting these boots cause my brother purchased these and had so much positive feedback about them. What I like about them is that they are lightweight yet have great ankle support. I've used them from walking trails to hiking and camping. Very comfortable and durable for me. Haven't had any problem with them so far.

    The best boots!

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

    These are definitely the most comfortable hiking boots I have ever owned...they feel very sturdy and really grip to all different terrains.

    Poor durability

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

    Most people giving reviews on this boot are either employees or people who used them a couple of times.
    My boots are now dead: multiple holes, get soaked with water just by walking in wet grass and so on.
    Their would be good if it did not happen that soon: I trekked with them 35 days in total. I am right now in Patagonia and have 1 more 4 day trek to do, but since a week each river crossing and rainy day is a nightmare. The holes appeared because of flexing the boots when walking, it just rips the tissue on it.
    Also, after 2/3days walking with them 15 miles a day, be prepared for a lot of pain from the thinner base compared to other trekking boots. They also get very hard to dry once soaked.

    Overall they are really poor boots. They are great for walking on well maintened trails (but in this case why have bulky boots??) but for real wild trekking their are too poor quality, and the waterproofing is good only for a couple of days walking. Even after reapplying DWR.

    I suggest buying heavier stronger boots for hard hiking and trekking or lighter shoes for basic hiking.

    awesome boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Not a lot more that i can say that other people have not already mentioned.
    These boots are great in every way. I have not found anything to complain about yet.
    They were flawless for 4 months of pretty hard hiking last fall.
    I would buy these boots again any day

    Great boots

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

    Great boots for hiking or just walking around. I tend to twist my ankles (kind of a klutz) when walking on uneven terrain and this guys have helped me with that. The support they provide makes it hard for you to do that. Comfortable and helps keep feet dry.

    Great boots

      I love Salomons Boots. I have used mine on countless trips guiding, on the Mountain Rescue Team, and everything in between, and they are killer. I have absolutely zero complaints about them. They Rock.

      Unanswered Question

      Went hiking in wet grass and brush today- no actual immersion, but after 4 miles my feet were so wet that I could wring water out of my socks. They were kind of dirty to start. I have now cleaned them, but do I need to treat them and if so, with what? Thank you.

      Unanswered Question

      Looking at most of the q&as here, i would like to ask if this shoe is an all season boot or more for the colder temperatures/winter. Was thinking of finding something that i could wear for the warmer weather in the tropics as well.

      I know this isn't a mountaineering boot or one specific for winter but with that being said could you slap a pair of crampons on these? I'll be doing an early winter summit and there will be some snow maybe ice? Just trying to figure out what I'll need!

      Other sites say these weigh 1lb 3.5 oz. NOT 11-12 oz as posted here.

      The weight spec is important, what's up?

      Hey Chris,

      Salomon's website shows the Quest 4D 2 GTX Backpacking Boots as 640 grams which I am guessing would be the per boot weight. Looks like we might have the wrong weight listed but I will verify with one of our Gear Gurus (who can actually weigh the boots) and get back to you.

      Feel free to contact me directly if you have any additional questions about Salomon Boots.


      Expert Gearhead


      Will you have these in a size 13 U.S. anytime soon? I've completely worn out the older version after hiking hundreds of miles in the Montana backcountry.


      We have a bunch of size 13's on order that should be to us by the end of the month. Want me to watch that inventory for you?

      Shoot me an email anytime you have questions!

      Expert Gearhead


      Hey Jared, Thanks for the reply. If you want to let me know when you get them in that will be great. I am definitely leaning toward a new pair of these as I really like the previous version, however, I've been looking at the Arc'teryx Bora² Mid Boot because of the seamless upper for added water resistance. Also the lifetime warranty they offer is very appealing.

      How do the two compare? Will the Bora² last longer and be more waterproof?

      Unanswered Question

      What updates have been made to Quest 4D 2 GTX boot from the previous model? I freakin' love my old pair of Quest 4Ds, but they have finally been used up.
