With the Vaya's extreme comfort, get ready to roll on and off the trail as you please without even noticing you haven't switched shoes. Upon arrival, I was stunned at how light these hikers were. Their weight combined with instant comfort (I didn't really need to break them in at all!) and goretex outer makes them a great option for those shoulder season mud hikes as well as in-town slush-slaying moseys. I've come to love the color gradient of the shoes. Fit is true to size and if I had another pair I'd surely give them to my best friend.

Fits like a sneaker - Rugged like a boot

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

First, these boots out of the box are incredibly cozy. The moment I put them on I felt as though I was wearing a pair of running shoes but with ankle support and toe box protection. The sole of the boot seems to have a enough support for long miles along rugged terrain. Since there is still snow in the mountains up here I was only able to test these out on a local 3 mile hike. No hot spots, great traction even on wet leaves/muddy terrain, and I cannot emphasize enough on the support and lightweight components. I actually was able to jog in these for a bit. I can't wait to take these out on some backpacking trips this summer!

HYPER Light Shoe for Hikes

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Things I love: -extremely lightweight, yet sturdy -true to size -waterproof capabilities -ankle support -wide toe-box Does well in: Snow, slush, long hikes, gravel/dirt I cannot rave enough about this shoe. It is extremely lightweight, rugged, and waterproof. It fits my foot super well, as I have narrow feet but require a wide toe-box. The ankle-support is solid, I need it with skinny ankles! I feel very comfortable on any terrain. The shoe grips well on rock and gravel, I did use traction on slick ice (that is a given). I've taken them out quite a bit and I love that I am confident in whatever terrain I come up against on a trail in the Rockies. The last hike took me to 10,000 feet and the shoe performed better than any hiker I've ever owned. I'm excited to use them on longer hikes this summer at higher altitudes.

Great Lightweight Boot

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My favorite new lightweight boot! The Vaya Mid GTX checks all the boxes for me. Bright and unique look, lightweight yet stable, mid height, and great traction. These shoes do great on a flat trail or on wet, rugged and rocky terrain. Great for someone looking for a multi use boot for warmer weather.

Secure and Safe

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was pretty blown away when I put these on. I'm used to boots feeling really rigid or restricting but these felt like a Cinderella slipper. I kept thinking, "my foot feels safe in these." No weird rubbing or bunion issues for my feet.

Perfect Winter Hiking Boot

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I mainly hike in trail runners, but for winter hiking these are perfect! Not only do they fit like a trail runner, they also are very lightweight for a boot! I have been wearing them with snowshoes, and the Vaya's remain comfortable even under the extras straps and weight. They fit true to size for me, which is exciting because I have a wide forefoot! These boots quickly became a staple in my gear closet!

Waterproof & Comfy!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

With all the rain we've had lately these have been great. Literally walked through streams and the water runs off the boots. They are also lightweight and super comfy. While I have mostly done training hikes in them, I am looking forward to backpacking in them this summer!

These are my jam!! They are so comfortable but incredibly durable. I was surprised with how lightweight they are, which is really important to me! They are a mid height, and GTX, which is another important necessity. I have already been recommending these boots to everyone I can! Who doesn't want a boot that is: lightweight, durable, gtx, doesn't rub in weird places, comfortable, and can withstand tough terrain!

I’ve been using the Salomon Mid Vaya on my daily hikes and I really enjoy these boots. They’re super light weight for a mid boot which is a huge plus (to me there’s nothing worse than heavy footwear). They’re also very comfortable, you can lace them up and go- no rubbing in weird places or blisters. I would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a comfy (but sturdy) hiking boot that does well on all different terrains.

First impression...I absolutely love the green hombre. They’re a great looking boot. I love how lightweight these are and the toe box is a little wider than my previous pair of Salomons. I love the mids, I am prone to rolling my ankle and I love the support these offer. The traction on the trail is amazing and Goretex is a must have the the Pacific Northwest!

After years of bad experiences with boots and backpacking, I gave up on hiking boots. That is, until I found the Vaya. The Vaya is everything I've always wanted in a hiking boot—it has the ankle support and stability of a traditional hiking boot but without the bulk and weight. It fits like my favorite Salomon trail runners and is cute to boot (pun intended). I've used these boots on the rocky trails here in Virginia's Shenandoah National Park and have had no discomfort while climbing or descending. Highly recommended for ladies who want a lightweight boot that looks good, feels solid, and is comfortable right out of the box.

I love these boots from the color to the comfort! They didn't need to be broken in the way a lot of boots need to be. They are gore-Tex which makes hiking in all different seasons awesome. I was surprised and stoked by how light (yet supportive) they are! I am excited to use these for some big treks I have coming up!
