I love this shoe. It is a bit heavy compared to other hiking boots but it is meant for longer backpacking trips. Salomon has the 3D comet if you want a backpacking shoe that is a little bit lighter. That being said, I love the sturdiness. My feet are blister prone, maybe it's because I haven't found the right shoe for me until now and I have been on a Quest (sorry for the pun) to find the backpacking boot that wouldn't make me wish I was walking barefoot through the forest for a long time. The goretex waterproof feature is great, I was able to stand in stream to pump water without them getting wet. I have a really wide foot and these were completely fine, even after hikers swelling. I been told with Gore-tex to go up 1/2 size but I did not because they do run somewhat large.
I ended up buying them from someone other than Amazon because at the time I found them way cheaper somewhere else BUT I do love the shoe itself. I have a wide foot and I've...
I bought these shoes 2 months ago and have hiked 149 miles in them. I like them so much, I came back and bought a second pair for the future.
It normally takes me a couple years to find shoes of any kind that work for me. Somehow I could tell by looking at the picture that these were going to work. I tried them on locally to be sure, and then had to be convinced by my husband that high tops really were the way to go. SO glad I listened, as we hike all day on rocks and roots and uneven ground, and the great ankle support these boots provide is vital for avoiding fatigue and falls. We also walk across shallow creeks, and so far they have been water proof. Traction is fantastic. Arch support is excellent. Between these and my Sole flipflops that I live in, my PF is controlled.
I do have to double knot the laces, as then tend to untie. For me there was a little bit of a break in period while my bony ankles got used to having contact with the side of the boot...
It took me a while to buy this boot because I couldn't figure why the Amazon photo was lighter than the Salomon photo. After waterproofing with Nikwax (recommended by Salomon), my boots are now the deep blue/navy blue that you see at the Salomon website and no longer the turquoise blue you see on Amazon and at REI. The arch support may be good for many, but I have plantar fasciitis and high arches, and I was hoping that the Ortho-lite in the hiking boot would feel the same way that it felt in the Salomon XA Pro 3D W trail shoe but it doesn't, and that's okay because I can get another insole. I expect hiking boots and trail shoes to have extra room because I think feet have a tendency to swell during hikes, especially lengthy hikes. I also need the extra room for hiking socks. In terms of comfort, I had no problem wearing the boots all day, but it will require a bit of time for the stiffness at the top of the boot near the shin to loosen up so I'll make adjustments to how I lace...
