Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I finally bit the bullet and bought a pair, best decision I've made in a while. I've been wearing an old school pair of Altama leather combat boots daily for as long as I can remember (I think they're date stamped '96) and they were the most comfortable footwear that I've ever had the pleasure of wearing...until now.
I bought the Salomons because I wanted to get back into hiking and a few other extracurricular activities that required more traction, better support, etc. than the old Altamas. I immediately jumped on a pair of Absolute Browns when I saw Tac Distributors had one pair left in stock that happened to be my size (looks like they have more in now...) Free overnight shipping can't be beat.
PROs: Almost zero break-in. Initially I had a slight hot spot on the right ankle and one on the left arch but they were non-existent after about a day of wear. I didn't intend to wear these everyday but I can't help it now. I threw the Altamas in my trunk during my...
I absolutely love this boot!! Fits true to size, and they were comfortable right out of the box. I use them for work and the shooting range. Very good traction and support. The only caveat i need to throw in here is that i dont really beat them up too much, meaning my work is more in an office setting with occasional desert hiking. I wouldnt foresee them not holding up in heavy use, but i cant honestly say that i've used them hard. In any case, they will be very comfortable while they last and leave your feet a lot less tired after wearing them for 12 hours a day.
These boots are the best for me. I have a very high arch in my foot and this brand supports the arch in my foot better then any other shoe I have ever tied. They fit perfect right out of the box. I have two pair of this brand of shoe and they both fit perfect. This pair of boot is used for camping trips with boy scouts or just regular camping and for my part time job working in a gun store and shooting range. The other pair of Salomon's X Ultra Mid 2 GTX are used as every day shoes. I can ware both of these boots all day with no concerns.
