As expected-outstanding!

Very happy indeed with this purchase, two pairs of X ULTRA 4 GORE-TEX (different designs) and they are both as good (and comfy) as expected.

Different fit!!!

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

Solomon recently changed the fit of this shoe radically. Much narrower in the forefoot. Tried on same size of regular fit and wide fit and the current wide fit is narrower than the old regular fit. My older pair did not last as long as expected so I communicated with Solomon USA and they approved my warranty so they do stand by their shoes.

Very comfortable - little break-in period needed

I subtracted a star because my last pair did not last as long as I had hoped.

Solid performance

Had a pair of the of the X Ultra 4 for a while now and so far they are holding up, fit comfortably and are very light. I have not done a serious hike yet but they seem like they will be good. Long term durability will be the test…

I’ve never had a problem when ordering a size 12 (us) shoe or boot from any manufacturer, or any style of footwear. I bought these for a trip I was leaving on the day after I got them so I had to take them. Luckily the trip was not hiking or a lot of walking! I had to cut off the outer edges of the insoles to keep my ankles and outsides of my feet from hurting. Even with the thinnest socks I could find my toes are jammed into the front of the shoes. Honestly, they feel like a 11-narrow instead of a 12-regular. Since I had to wear them I can’t return, but they are now throw-away/donate items and I’m back shopping again.

Poor Quality

Look great BUT after only 3 months of very light use parts of the material are peeling away from the shoe where the glue isn’t strong enough to hold it together. Have proceeded down the warranty route after seeing similar reviews else where.

Comfortable but not Impressed

Bought my first pair of Salomon not knowing how comfortable they would be. They’re comfortable but at the same time they’re not either. They hit me in the arch of the right foot on the left side of my right foot and I’ve noticed there not really breaking in to make it more comfortable. Must be how the boot/ shoe is designed. Other than that they seem like a decent shoe and they look great. Just not to sure if I’d purchase again.

Solid, durable, lightweight, waterproof

They last well, are comfortable, lightweight and properly waterproof. They also look pretty good. However, they do tend to come loose after a few km and require regular re-tightening which can be frustrating.
