Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After putting over 200 Miles on them I feel like I can talk about these boots a little bit. First off they are the most comfortable boot I've owned, glove-like fit. They are super lightweight compared to most hiking/backpacking boots out there, just a bit heavier that a trail running shoe without sacrificing stability. Totally waterproof, the only moist that builds up inside them is because of my profusely sweaty feet. The grip is ok, I prefer Vibram all day long but they get the job done. Breathability is pretty decent, it's getting HOT out here in Texas so we'll see how they behave in temperatures over 100 degrees. Overall you can't go wrong with these, they're just awesome!
This really is a great boot. Unlike other Salomon products they do need to be broken in. I'm giving them 4 stars because I don't like the tread on them. They don't grip well in slippery conditions.
What I like is that they wick away moisture very well. I wore them during a thunderstorm for about 5 miles. There was no chance of keeping them dry. I didn't get a single blister.
I have flat feet and these boots provide great arch support. I also require a wider toe box which these boots have.
If you buy these, try replacing the boot laces with gutted 550 cord. You'll feel the difference.
Ordered this boot because of the advertised Gortex lining. It was comfortable and fits my feet right out of the box. There were no problems with hotspots or friction problems that I had with this shoe, making it superior to the Vasque and Hitec Boots that I had previously. Wore the shoe to hike in Nepal (Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp). However, the gortex lining of my boot did not prevent water ingress into the boot after the 4th day and a few seconds of stepping into a shallow stream crossing (not deep enough to enter via the top of the boot). I was wearing gaiters and was walking cautiously and not splashing around. Needless to say, some more R+D needed to be done to improve the boot's waterproofing. It would have been the perfect boot otherwise. Lightweight, good shape, no friction spots and no blisters or black toes. However, I suffered from dampness in my feet and every evening, had to dry my socks, boot and insoles.
