I really liked this shoe. Solid, good support, and nice looking. I especially liked the way the lacing worked -- perfect with one tug. But a bit too short and too wide for my narrow foot. Had to return.

I wanted these to work, I really did. They are more green than gray, and the front (around bunyon area on foot, these are HELLA tight fitting. I wear a 9.5. Length was ok, maybe a 10 would have worked better. Shoes/boots don't fit me well these days. Who are these companies fitting these shoes on? Ended up returning them.

I bought these for a Mudderella race. I wasn't sure of sizing so I ordered the 7.5 and 7. The 7 fit great and I generally wear a 7. They worked great in the mud, slop and water. Drained well, and no blisters thankfully. I had hoped to clean them up and continue to use them afterwards but unfortunately Maine mud smells like... Well poo. And nothing is getting that smell out! I've saved them for the next mud run/event (tucked away wear noses don't venture). I also decided to keep the 7.5 as they are just a tad too big. With heavier socks I think they will work well for walking the dog in the winter on slippery roads. I would definitely recommend! Also people had warned me about the lacing system and that it would loosen during the run. It did not. Although the plastic piece did pack up with mud and was very hard to get them off at the end.

I wore these on my 16.5 mile round trip hike to Half Dome and they were absolutely perfect. Very grippy and my feet only started to hurt at the very end - at that point my whole body hurt and no shoe could have changed that.

These are my first pair of Salamon's. I love them! They are very comfortable for any sort of activity you do. Your feet sit a little lower in the shoe than in others. The laces are also a little tricky at first but are easy once you get to know the shoe.

I love these shoes. I'm exchanging them for a 1/2 size larger. Based on reviews from a variety of sites, I thought these shoes ran large and so I ordered a 1/2 size smaller than I normally would with an athletic shoe. This shoe runs just like a Nike for me. But I love the style, the color, the way they feel, and can tell they'll be great when the larger size gets here!

Love these shoes! I tried Merrill's and others and they just weren't comfortable for my feet. When I first tried these on, I was a little leery because the arch area was really tight but it loosened up. I wore these in the Rockies two days after purchasing and my feet never complained!! Will be buying Salomon's from now on!

These shoes are amazing! they are so lightweight and waterproof also! This is my 1st pair of Salomons and I bought them just because of the excellent reviews. I know I will get a lot of wear out of these this winter. The sole is not as tready as a Vibram sole that you get on other hiking shoes but it really is self cleaning. No dirt packs in the treads which is real nice.

While this shoe is highly rated and comfortable for me, I had little confidence in the tie method because of my hiking experiences so I returned it.

I have tons of foot problems and this is an ideal shoe for me; it's comfortable and reasonably fashionable - though not colorful - but I am grateful that I can wear these. I just wish they ran in more normal sizes - I normally wear an 8 - 8.5.

I use these as walking shoes, five miles a day and they are truly perfect. They are comfortable, not"cushiony" which is good as I need more structure for long walks. I do not find them to be over-sized, I wear my exact size. I have wide feet and they are perfectly accommodating. I cannot speak to the arch support as I always use my own Walking Company insoles.

So far they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever bought. I'm even thinking of buying another pair to put in the closet so when these wear out I don't have to worry about finding they don't make them any more!

Love Salomon hiking boots. I have small, narrow feet and they are the only boots that fit me, plus they are extremely gel-like and comfortable to hike in all day. Most boots have such a hard sole and if you have small feet, you can't get the foot bed to bend with your foot. These boots do bend and conform. Love love love them.

These are my favorite shoe. All my friends make fun of me for wearing them so they are clearly not fashionable. However, I don't care about looks -- I care about function and these shoes are all about function. I travel regularly and never leave the house without these. I have been in the rain, snow and sun with these and they are amazing. I rarely use my heavy duty snow boots anymore as these have adequate protection from moisture. I also exercise with them roughly 4 miles a day (usually walking/hiking sometimes running). I've also played tennis in them (I know you're not supposed to do that but they are great for even tennis). Awesome show with hard wear they will last about 9 to 12 months.

This was an attractive and comfy shoe with one huge flaw. There is a ridge of plastic on the inside of the toe that caught my big toe nail every few steps. I did buy a half size down, so I might not have noticed has I not. However, I suspect it would rub going downhill. I have two pairs of Salomon shoes and the others needed a half size smaller. I like both of them a lot, so I think it's just this style.

I ordered six pairs of shoes to compare, and these won. I have bunions, so toe room is important. I like the quick lacing. The very of leather that that attaches to the lacing point at my bunion is slightly irritating, but not to bad. Also it is a bit stiff around the top of the shoot, which might rub some people on the ankle. Salomon also won my hiking boot comparison, so I'm a new fan of the brand. The footbed seems to fit my sole shape. I think it could have more padding and metatarsal support, so I may replace it. I ordered a half size shorter based on previous reviews.

I liked my first Salomon's better than these - they seemed to have more cushioning and were better looking. But these have been good hiking shoes - I always order a size up when getting these type of shoes and it works.

I'm a Salomon junkie when it comes to hiking boots -- I haven't worn anything else since 2000, hiking in the Grand Canyon annually. Salomon combines good styling -- I wear a size 10! -- with out-of-the-box comfort and serious ruggedness in their more expensive boots. Their proprietary Contagrip outsole is also fabulously tenacious on any surface but ball-bearing gravel. Two complaints: this is my third pair of the same exact boot, but these required buying a 1/2 size larger, though a different style I bought at the same time fit fine. Also, their Ortholite insole is worthless. You'll most likely need to replace it right away. But they're still great boots for any terrain.

Shoe runs a little big and I would exchange but the laces on this shoe are awful. Very thin like thread. Returning.

The first time I wore these shoes was in Yosemite on a three hour hike and I was comfortable the whole time. I didn't need to break them in. I normally wear a size 6 but I ordered a 6.5 to compensate for the swelling of my feet due to the hiking.

Don't think I'll be buying this shoe again. Runs large. I was looking for a shoes with more cushioning in the heel. Definitely not this shoe. I put some power steps insoles in and they helped. Just not what I was looking for!
