Great for backpacking.
Bought 3 pair of these shoes for my daughters to use to backpack into the high lakes in Colorado because I have a pair of them in the men’s shoes and I love them. Perfect fit right out of the box. No need for to break them in first. Good ankle support and great traction on the wet slippery trails. Light and they last a long time.
Good, but not perfect
I did extensive research on hiking boots before purchasing these based on the many good reviews and good balance of weight to features. They wear very comfortably, and I like that the tongue is connected to the boots, which seems like it would do a good job of blocking out water and dirt. Great price point.
After trying these on, I ended up returning, because I don't feel that they provided the ankle support that I was looking for in a boot. First, it's hard to get the laces tight, which could potentially be improved by changing the laces? It also seems that the tongue of the boots is a little too thick to snug up the ankle area.
love them from the moment I put them on
These Salomon boots were ultra comfortable from the moment I put them on; they offer support at the bottom of the foot and the back and sides of the ankle, but they aren't restrictive or clunky like some of the ones I've tried while searching for hiking boots. They feel lightweight and there is a lot of cushion ..... I've taken them out for one longer hike up a rocky hill and off trails, and I feel like they are really helping me move more easily through that terrain. I went for waterproof knowing that they might be a little warmer (I live in TX), but so far, so good, my feet aren't overheating .....I 100% love them!
I read a few reviews saying the top lacing hook can catch the laces of the other boot while walking and trip someone, so per those reviews, I have double/triple-knotted my laces to make sure that doesn't happen. Otherwise they are perfect!
