I absolutely LOVE these shoes. They are the most comfortable running shoes I've ever had. I even called Salomon to see what would be comparable in a normal tread. Great support!

I love these shoes! They are comfortable, have good support, and as one whose shoe laces always come untied, I really appreciate the lacing system w/ its little toggle. No more loose laces -- ever! I also like the wide toe box and find my orthotics fit in them just fine. I wear them for boot camp and for running around on errands.

I purchased these shoes with intention of using for paintball playing. Most people wear wide receiver or soccer cleats. You have to run a lot on different terrains requiring quick stops and turns. I had a problem with my ankles in soccer cleats after wearing for 8+ hours and really cleats are not that good in the woods. I normally wear a 10.5 or 11 in shoes depending on the brand. These required me to get a 11.5. still very little room in front of my toes, just enough to not have pressure on the tips. So they ran small in my opinion by at least size. This was the first thing I noticed. Second thing I noticed was the comfort. These are probably the most comfortable shoes in general that have ever been on my feet. I am a shoe hoarder with 50+ which I am told is a lot for man. I felt no specific pressure points under my feet. Very light weight and feel as if there is nothing on my feet but a cushion under them. The material around your foot is not to a specific shape so it kind of wraps around the shape of your foot. It did not run narrow or wide for me. Third thing I noticed were the lacing system. I have never seen anything like this other than on snowboard boots and they are somewhat different using wire with a twist lock. Very easy to lighten and loosen. Only after looking at instructions did I realize that the excess lace can be tucked into the tongues small pocket. At this point I started running around my house somewhat to make sure the sizing was correct and the grip on my carpet was incredible. After actions report: So I have now worn these 2 times for 12 hours each day. These are amazing. Worth the money I spent. They never loosened throughout the day, I had no problems with extra lace flopping around. I ran on uneven terrain in the woods and in open fields. This includes grass, leaves, dirt/mud, very little water though. They held up great. The grip they get on quick stops and turns was amazing. My feet didn t hurt at the end of the day. It provided very good ankle support. The only con I could find was that on break (every 2 hours) I noticed the top of the tongue had tilted its way to the outside of my foot slightly. Not enough to notice and may have been because laces were not tight enough. I will have to try a few different things to test that theory though. Overall this is an incredible shoe and would highly recommend to anyone.

The toe box fit is snug compared to previous years. The shoes aren't too short or too narrow; however, they seem to create pressure right across the joints of your toes.

As with all hiking boots, I ordered a half-size up from my regular shoe size. I had a pair of these for a year and a half and I wore them for about 750 miles of hiking, according to my fitbit. My only complaint is that the leather area where my foot causes a crease eventually cracked and the boots lost their waterproof quality. I contacted Salomon and they sent me replacements--within a week! Now, if the boots get really soaking wet (on the outside--the new ones are totally waterproof), I use some wax on the leather to keep them from cracking!

I bought these boots primarily to wear to/from pre-dawn spin class through the winter months. The height is adequate to completely cover my legs when I'm wearing cropped leggings (without the need for knee-high socks or leg warmers), and the knit provides a lovely warmth. These boots are extremely lightweight and comfortable. I, like some other reviewers, found them to run slightly large. My usual 7.5 felt too roomy even with the thickest socks I own. So I sized down to a 7 and found an ideal fit.

Wow, these are narrow. I do not have a big calf muscle and they were quite snug with jeans on. I also felt the top of the boot was squeezing the top of my foot. The bottoms reminded me more of a sneaker than a snow boot, so they're going back!

I got these boots for walking the dog. I was hoping for a comfortable boot that I could walk a lot in. They aren't as cushiony as I had hoped, but they are fairly comfortable and they keep my feet warm.

I have a narrow foot that needs serious arch support, so it's tough to find shoes that fit right. I have purchased Salomon hiking boots in the past and I like the way they fit. Their shoes tend to be a little narrower than others. I bought Salomon's Nytro GTX boots for a hunting trip and they were great. I spent several days walking through the woods in about 4-6 inches of snow. They are warm (but not hot), have great arch support, and they fit my narrow foot.

I've been buying Salomon's boots for about ten years now. They provide the best support (I don't need my inserts)and I like their waterproofing. I am also a fan of the pull lacing system, no worries about having to stop and re-tie the laces often, which I have to do with a pair of Merrel's I own. I wish, though, that they had a few colors in women's that were more muted. My only complaint, and it isn't about the shoes, is that it took about a week for the shoes to arrive. Usually with Zappos I get close to next day service.

I bought these shoes to hike Half Dome and unfortunately didn't get to wear them beforehand much to break them in. Turns out that was not a problem, I wore them for our 16 mile hike and didn't get a single blister. My feet were sore at then end but I think that is only natural after a 16 mile uphill hike. These shoes are amazing. Great grip - I felt very safe in them.

I finally decided to keep these in a size 9, 1/2 size up, and am happy with that size. I think the toe area is not as wide as the original XR Missions, although I called Salomon and was told they have not changed at all. I like the black sole and laces of the papaya color scheme with just purple and orange added. It seems fairly neutral and is fun.

I bought these shoes for walking/hiking in any kind of weather. The Gore-Tex did a great job of keeping my feet dry and the soles gave good traction. The Quicklaces work great if your feet are shaped the same as Salomon's shoe last...it seems my feet are not. If I tightened the laces to where my heel wouldn't slip, then it was too tight across my midfoot. I wound up modifying the laces so my feet were comfortable without slipping. The Ortholite footbed is too thin to provide any impact absorption and I changed mine out for a footbed of much better quality. The shoes are well made, but there was way too much fiddling with them to get them to fit my feet.

I climb up & down sand dunes on Lake Michigan. Year round in all weather. I can run in snow, ice and dry sand equally well. My feet stay dry buried in a foot of snow. Light weight sturdy. This is my third pair.

These are by far the best pair of XC shoes I have used. They are great for cross training, post cyclocross race early season as well as kicking around at work. I have 3 pairs and highly recommend.

This is the 3rd pair of this shoe I have owned. The first two pairs I bought from REI. They wear well and are water proof. I have been hard them using them for hopping on rocks and riding bikes with BMX like pedals that have short spikes. I like them and Zappos delivered with no fuss or muss.

This is a beautiful jacket. It is very warm. It does seem a bit tight across the chest, so I am ordering a medium instead of the small I got today. (I love the Zappos shipping policy!) It is super lightweight, but also super warm! So, if that is what you are looking for, along with a more updated modern style, this may be the one you need!

These are very comfortable, warm and of course, cute boots. I plan on using a waterproofing agent to make sure they do keep the water out in winter. For deep snow cover I'll probably just use my Hunter Boots (with their warm inner liner). I am a 7.5 and ordered the 7 based on other reviews. They fit perfectly except for the width around the ankle. I have slim feet and calves and they feel great with thick warm socks and leggings.

Thanks to Zappos rapid shipping I got to try these out for the very first day of Polar Vortex 2.0. Not only are these super cute shoes (lots of compliments today), I trudged around in the snow with no issues. Combined with smart wool socks, I was toasty despite the "feels like -10" weather. I first tried them on barefoot just to get a size measure as I'm a pretty predictable 7.5. The 7.5 was about a half size too big on its own. Wearing them with heavy socks, which is the way you'd likely wear these shoes, the 7.5 was a great fit for me. It was still slightly loose in the ankle, but you can really cinch these down with the lacing. I wouldn't have wanted to go any smaller as the toe box would have been too uncomfortable. Walking around in ice/snow confirmed I had a great fit. I would suggest ordering your normal size as long as you plan to wear heavy socks with them.

Love these, they are my second pair of S-Lab Sense shoes. If you don't need the cushion, they're great. Very low, you have great control. They're my favorite for trail running. You can take confidence in every stride.

I bought these at an REI garage sale. I did not know what I had until I got home and looked them up on Zappos. I think perhaps the clerk made an error in pricing. These are fantastic shoes. The first time on, I worked all day at landscaping work, up and down hills, in dirt, in mud, and they were awesome. Your foot feels so well held and protected, and I have picky feet. I highly recommend these. Try to find them on sale!
