Fits great and comfortable. Took them on a 12 mile hike through hiking trails, technical rocky terrain, mud and rain. They aren't advertised as waterproof but kept my feet reasonably dry for the conditions. They have plenty of cushioning in the heal and sole of the shoe for rocky terrain but not too think so you can still get a great hold on the rocks. Overall a great show for light hiking.
Absolutely love this shoe. I've been wearing multiple different Solomon hiking shoe models for a few years. Fantastic support (with Chiropractor orthotics switched in for generic inserts that come with ahoes). Fantastic grip for walking on concrete or for trails, sand, rock and wet surfaces outdoors. Solomon has hit another home run. I wear them for trail hiking, light running on trails, camping, boating and even running errands in town. I wear an 11 in my ASICS running shoes and an 11 in all Solomon model shoes including these.
I recently started to do some light hiking and did some research online then went to REI to try on some different shoes. I was originally thinking I needed a more serious hiking shoe (high/mid top). But as I watched more hiker videos on YouTube about the whole ultralight hiking community and a talk by Andrew Skurka, I quickly learned that perhaps spending more $$$ on more serious shoes may not be exactly what I was looking for. Besides, I also wanted the flexibility to wear this when not at work with jeans easily like a walking shoe. I turned to Solomon for three primary reasons:
I) I have a smaller feet, but quite wide for my size (short stubby) and these seem to be able to accommodate comfortably (although when it arrived, the right foot front toe box was a tad tighter than the left, not sure if it was the shoe or just my feet, but have not experienced this with any other shoes before. After breakOng them in for a few days, this was not an issue and they fit equally...
