Work and play

I bought these shoes for my job working out in the field 40+ hrs a week doing geo tech work because I needed protection against the elements and stable footing. They have far surpassed my expectations. My work involves walking on and testing various soils ranging from very moist clay to large rock. These shoes handle it all and I know I can trust them while climbing down into a trench or verifying subgrade in inches of standing water. Outside of work I have done some moderate to hard hiking and trekked a few hours through the snow with very minimal dampness. Basically I wear these all week long, into my weekend recreation. In fact, I’m going to purchase the mids for the wetter and colder seasons.

The laces on these shoes will break well before the shoe is worn out. You can buy replacements but good luck putting them together. Otherwise a very good shoe. But laces are a nightmare.

Great shoe, well constructed. However as a consistent size 11, my pair was noticeably a half size too small. Returning them for the next half size up.

Dry feet, dry feet and did I say dry feet? We recently moved to Lake Country Minnesota. If you're not dealing with heavy dew each morning, you'll be walking through puddles of rain. Short walks with the dog are much more enjoyable as well as several hour hikes. Comfort level is excellent as this is still a lightweight shoe. The speedlaces are terrific and operable with gloves on and they stay tight.

This is a very nice hiking shoe. I find it is perfect when I want a little more than a trail running shoe but don't think I need a pair of boots. These shoes have good durable traction and are comfortable for a hike right out of the box. Salomon built the right shoe for this niche.

I was looking for a replacement shoe for my Salomon XAlp for banging around the foothills and this shoe works very well. I wasn't sure of the lacing system at first but have found it to be reliable and holds securely all day. It did take a couple of short walk arounds for these shoes to really feel comfortable, but since then they are very comfortable and have very good traction. Another great Salomon product.

Thanks for the awesome review, Dennis!

Just picked a pair of these for summer hiking and trail running. I send back way more shoes than I keep because of hard to fit feet. These were comfy right out of the box. I wore them around town for a few days and then took them on an 8 miler in the wet woods with lots of ups and downs. My feet stayed dry and comfy the whole time! I’m thinking about the boot version for Kili next year.

I have never had any problems with any pair of Salomons and these have been no different. Just a great shoe brand.

Painful

I have the non-gtx version and it was great, so I also ordered the gtx for the wet weather. Unfortunately the shoe eyelets have not enough padding under it, after a few days' hiking in Utah's mighty five, the top of my left foot about 4.5 inches from my big toe(which is right under the 2nd eyelet) developed a bruise, and that was painful which killed the rest of my vacation. After I went home, I compared the gtx and the non-gtx version, the padding under the shoe eyelets of the gtx version is much thinner. Thank goodness I bought this pair from Backcountry.com, the CS was so understanding and supportive, even though it was two months after the purchase, he put me on-hold and talked to the warranty department who gave me the full refund. Got to love Backcountry.com.

I've only worn these a few times so far but right out of the box they were super comfortable. They were a bit stiff so a week or 2 of breaking in wouldn't be terrible if you're intended use is to go straight to hiking with these. But It's not super necessary. They have Salomons ortholite foot bed which is killer and the lacing system is superb!

Broke these over the last week doing stage hand work. Comfortable out of the box, bought a 1/2 larger than normal due to reviews, but feel my normal size would have been fine. Not sure the quicklace system saves any time, but it keeps the shoes tight, and there are no pesky laces to come lose and trip you up. They run a bit warm in high heat, but i will get plenty of use out of the waterproof feature.

These hiking shoes are hands down the best pair of hiking shoes I have ever owned. After years dealing with serious discomfort in my feet during/after long hikes I found Salomon. I have worn these shoes for the last three years (two pair lasted three years all seasons but winter...pretty great for what I put my shoes through) and I have been pain free the whole time. I just ordered a pair to wear on my honeymoon and they showed up in just a couple of days, just in time to make the trip and save my feet. I would and have recommended to hiking friends and even strangers on the trail.

Hi there, I am looking for a pair of hiking shoes for men. Ideally, I hope they can be waterproof, good ventilation, and lightweight, However, I have very small feet (6.5 - U.S. size). I found your Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX Hiking Shoe/Boots - Men's, but the smallest you have seems to be 7. I am wondering if you have anything similar that is 6.5 in size? Best, RH
