LOVE. So comfortable!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These felt like a miracle when I tried them on and after a test run today it seems to be true. I hiked a moderate trail with some ups/downs (not super steep but enough to feel what the shoe is like on an incline) crossed creeks and got a general feel for the shoe on a dry cool day. These are hands down the most comfortable hiking shoe I have ever owned. I am SO happy. I wear a 10, I am tall with long skinny feet and long toes, these have plenty of room in the front so my toes are not jammed up, even going down hills.

They have a very comfy arch support, which I don't need but can't deny it feels really good on the sole. They aren't 100% waterproof, but they are up to about an inch, so cool for shallow creeks and mud if you lose your footing. They are ventilated, so my toes were a little cold while we were just hanging outside. It's DEC and a little cold out. I wore thin socks because it was a short hike, but I think with thicker socks they are fine for colder dry days. I won't be wearing these if we do any snow hiking- which I usually do in low tops with gators.

I wanted something light weight for long hikes and these are perfect. I also usually don't go for super vibrant "girl" colors, but the color scheme on this is a nice change from black and still not too showy. To me the size and shape are the most important and these are pretty perfect for my foot. No break in time needed.

    Gave these as a gift, but here's what my friend had to share!

    These are my first hiking shoes, and all I can say is that they are AMAZING! I have Salomon snowboarding boots and they are comfortable, so I decided to try their hiking shoes. I took these with me to Utah on an 8-day trip and I didn’t have to break them in. I was really nervous at first because of an injury to my left knee [torn ACL, torn patellar tendon, and torn lateral meniscus] and I wasn’t sure if the shoes were going to help, but these hiking shoes didn’t let me down! I love that they are lightweight, not bulky at all, and I felt safe when we were hiking, and they’re breathable too! It was my first time hiking, and we did a total of 80 miles after visiting 5 national parks and that wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for these shoes! Salomon has exceptional products, and I highly recommend these!
