The shoe could have been awesome, and probably would be for others, but I neglected to take into account that I cannot accomplish a more complex lacing that protects my bunions that I otherwise can with traditional lace hiking shoes. To cinch this shoe up tight enough to not roll on my foot I had to cinch that sensitive area as well. I was very much looking forward to this shoe. I have to say the fault was more the foot than the shoe.

These are great day hikers. Bought them to take to Glacier National Park for day hikes. Hiked 15 miles and 3500 feet up and back down and they worked great. Better than any other hiker I've ever had. Stable, too. They fit my narrow foot very well. Lacing system works great.

Oh, my gosh, I LOVE this shoe! To begin with, my feet are very hard to fit, but these shoes fit perfectly right out of the box! I wear a size 11 and have a medium width foot with a somewhat narrow heel. I have gone to running stores and specialty foot stores to be "professionally fit" for a good athletic shoe, but have never ended up with a good quality shoe that fit. Nike and New Balance are usually my best bet in terms of fit. I typically have to order a 12 in an athletic shoe for my size 11 feet, but size 11s and 12s seem to vary so much and are often uncomfortable, too big, or too small in one spot or another. Not these Salomon's! They fit perfectly and are oh, so comfortable! I read the other reviews prior to ordering and chose NOT to order a size up. I wear an 11 and I ordered an 11, and they're perfect. They're very breathable. They are somehow water repellant, though they look and feel like mesh. They are super cushiony and comfy while walking, jogging, and hiking. I have worn them all day long with total comfort. They are super grippy on most surfaces, but I've also found them to be more slippery than my standard-bottomed running shoes an wet, smooth-surfaced sidewalks. I love the colors (I got the aqua), and I love the look. They don't look like boats on my big feet. Yay! I love the easy "laces!" These shoes are great! I highly recommend them!

I purchased these for my 11-year-old son for a lot of walking around New York back in May. They fit right out of the box, and have held up through a busy summer (hiking, rough-housing) pretty well so far.

This has become my favorite shoe, not just for Day hiking and light overnighters but as my daily knock around shoe. It fits great, is true to size, looks good and I love the cable lacing system. Quick of and off but able to get just the right amount of tension when needed. I will get another pair in the darker color just for change sake. Zappos had them to me faster than expected...I love their service and will always try to use them first.

This is a great waterproof trail shoe; fit is very true to size, and comfortable. I trail run in this shoe several times a week, often in wet, and humid conditions, and it performs well. So, let’s address the big issues: Waterproofing and over all weight and features. The “Climate Shield” waterproof lining is outstanding and comparable to an equivalent Gore-Tex lining. Online reviews complain that this shoe is not as cool as a mesh upper, and that is true of any waterproof liner. However, a mesh upper will admit any and all water, whereas in rain, puddles, and mud this shoe keeps your feet dry. I have dunked my feet in a running stream and my feet kept dry. It’s a trade-off. From my perspective the support and features are well balanced with the weight and scale of the shoe. There are loads of trail running shoes out there that are lighter, and this shoe can feel over-featured by comparison. One online reviewer actually refers to this shoe as, “a boot”, likely because of its robust heel control. The Speedcross 3 is not a bare-foot style shoe; it is a fully featured running shoe. The aggressive tread offers good traction on all sorts of surfaces - wet and dry - and the cushioning is very good even on exposed rock, gravel, and roads. The Ortholite insert offers good arch support, but this is a wafer thin insert. If you are planning on putting in your own orthotics, there may not be enough room in this shoe. The speed-lace system holds the shoe on very effectively, and, when tightened, really gives the feeling of wrap-around support from the shoe. One of my pet-peeves is laces that just feel like they press down on the tops of your feet, but the speed-lace distributes the tension very well around the whole foot, and the sole feels well connected to your foot. The shoe squeaks very slightly, and I think it’s from the speed-lace, but this doesn’t stop me from really enjoying this shoe. If you are considering this shoe for an ultra light hiker; I just completed a 30 mile hiking trip in Yosemite's high country, and this shoe held up exceptionally well. Due to the necessities of guiding the trip, I ended up carrying a 45lb pack, and the shoe was still comfortable and adequately supportive.

These are the best tennis shoes I have ever had...colors are awesome...just got second pair of these. I love the wider toe. I'm a medical technologist and I wear these all day long. Get compliments all the time! Definitely try 'em...you'll love 'em! Well made and worth the price!

This shoe runs quite large. I wear a 6 in another pair of Salomons (6.5 in other shoes) and thought I was safe ordering this in a 6. I'd exchange them for a smaller size, however, I use a small lift in one shoe and I can't lift up the insole to place it under. Therefore, I'm returning these and getting a different pair of Salomon shoes.

This pair of Salomon’s has a very stiff bottom; it is not the normal soft and comfortable running snickers that you are used to. It is really a stable shoe for rough terrain. I had many pairs of Salomon’s in all different styles. I love this one in particular because they are roomy all around it and very helpful for when your feet swell up from a long trail run.

Great sneaker. Solid feel, great support. Use to walk my two Greyhounds every morning. Well worth the cost. You can't beat Zappos service. It's not your average Internet store. Look forward to dealing with Zappos on a regular basis.

These are absolutely amazing! I am on here looking at other colors to purchase after about three months of wearing these shoes for daily speed walking, as well as an additional 2-4 hours of running errands around town. I have wide, flatish feet and am traditionally hard on my shoes and these are holding up extremely well. They run true to size. I always get compliments - I love the bright colors!

I am a 7.5, and that is the size I ordered. However, it felt like an 8 or an 8.5, even with thick socks. I am returning for a smaller size and hoping those work. Love the colors though and they felt really comfortable!

I wanted shoes for short runs. I am not a long distance runner. It turns out that if I could wear them with my dress suits to work I would. They provide total comfort.

Excellent all-terrain shoe for running and/or hiking. Bought these specifically for a GORUCK Challenge, and they performed beautifully. They literally arrived minutes before I got in my car to go to the challenge, so right out of the box they were awesome, and kept my feet comfy and secure (they offer great support) throughout the night over all different kinds of terrain, including in and out of water, all with great traction. The lacing system is awesome; I can't believe more manufacturers don't employ this kind of design -- so easy to use, and you never have to worry about it coming untied. Maybe a tad narrow in the heel area. Regardless, would definitely purchase again!

This is my third pair of this exact shoe! I just keep buying it over and over and probably will until they stop making it. Very comfortable and I love not having to tie laces! Who has time for that?

Having had the Salomon XR missions before, I fell in love with Salomon shoes. I was slightly disappointed with the fit - narrow compared to the XR's. They have loosened up with a few weeks of wearing, but not as much as I would like. I did order and try a 1/2 size larger but my heel would slip out. Other than the narrow fit - I really like the shoe. Comfortable, good support and traction. If you have a wide foot, I would caution.

I have had three pairs of these boots. I have been suffering with Morton's neuromas for about two years now and these boots literally kept me walking. When no other shoe offered any comfort, these boots have the superior support that I needed. The winters here in Louisiana aren't harsh, but the constant rain is hard on shoes. These boots were a huge asset when crossing flooded streets on the way to work (or to the car after work). Worked great when I needed to walk through road construction to catch a ride too. Great performance, great comfort and stability. By far a superior winter boot for weather that isn't frequently below the 20s. And lasted me comfortably through summer, as my feet tend to get cold in air conditioning when sitting all day.

Well what can I say...Awesome. I drive a car hauler for a living and had to have a boot that was tough, durable, stable, with great traction and above all WATERPROOF! I do alot of walking and climbing and driving so these had to feel like tennis shoes and they do. Lightweight and very comfortable.These boots ft like a glove right out of the box true to size for me anyway.I have been wearing them for more than a month with no problems. Even loaded my truck in some wicked rain storm that flooded the road with my feet submerged from time to time and the only part of me that was dry were my feet.I love them and would recommend to anyone.

Love the footbed on these but get blisters if I run more than 3 or 4 miles. Even after I broke them in I can't seem to break the blister plague these shoes cause. Would love these without the hot spots for blisters, wish Salomon would please fix this problem. My Salomon GTX shoes I wear for winter runs have no problems, what's the deal?

Love them! They were so comfortable as soon as I put them on. At first, they felt a little big (I ordered my normal size), but after I put smart wool socks on and tightened the laces, they were fine. I wore them on a short hike and they were great! My toes had plenty of room and my feet didn't hurt. Can't wait to go out for another hike in these! I indicated that these felt a half size larger, but that isn't a bad thing. My heels never slipped and I had plenty of room.
