Best hiking shoes I've ever worn! I bought these shoes based on other reviews that mentioned a narrow heel and a roomy toe box - just what I was looking for and the minute I put them on my feet I was in heaven. After wearing them daily for a couple of months I ordered another pair so I'll have a backup when these wear out. I ordered my regular shoe size and they fit perfectly.

Bought to wear outside to do yard work, especially in the morning when wet. Excellent shoes. Keep my feet dry and are very light and comfortable. Probably buy another pair to keep for when these were out and may no longer be available then. Highly recommend.

I've been wearing these 6 months now and I'm going to order a second pair before they go out of stock. So comfortable and supportive with no break in time. I wore a different pair of walking shoes yesterday and today the soles of my feet hurt! These are going with me to hike the Inca Trail in Peru next week and I know I can trust in them. So far they are waterproof. I wear a quality hiking sock with these and my feet are never sore or tired. Highly recommend!

I love these shoes! I was skeptical, but they really are waterproof. I hadn't intended for these to be my everyday shoes either. Now I find myself wearing them more and more because they are so comfortable. I would buy these again in a heartbeat.

These are the best shoes I have ever had! I can't express enough how hard of a time I have buying shoes! Highly recommend! These are well worth your money! I read reviews about your feet getting wet. I live in Washington DC and a couple of snowstorms ago...I went out to shovel in these. My feet were warm and dry! So I'm not sure what other reviewers were talking about. I can also attest to saying that these shoes are a very stable shoe.

I had a pair of Salomon hiking shoes that lasted years and years and they finally had too many holes. I tried on some other brands but Salomon seem to fit me best. I bought these a week before a hiking trip, didn't get any blisters and found them to keep my feet dry while hiking through shallow streams. In some brands I need to order size 10.5 but the 10 fits very nicely.

My experience is also that the shoe runs 1/2 size large. I ordered a 7.5 and an 8 (which I usually wear) and the 7.5 was perfect. What a great shoe; great support and comfort.

I bought these for my daughter for two-week walking trip in Scotland. She had to exchange her normal size (8.5) for an 8. She received them the day before departure, so there was no break-in time. She commented several times how comfortable and dry her feet were, and we walked in rain or wet conditions almost every day. She loves them!

I purchased these because I like the rubber protected toe, the style/color, and the brand has been consistent in my view. I am a consistent 6.5 in almost all shoes, I don't have concerns or problems with aches or pains, or wide feet etc. When I received this shoe and tried it on, it was everything I wanted except one size too with too much room in the toe. Recommend for a slightly wider food need good arch support--order smaller by a half size. Great shoe, well designed.

I needed shoes that were comfortable and versatile. These not only met, but exceeded my expectations. I bought the Thyme/Asphalt and absolutely love the color! I get compliments on them all the time. These shoes required no breaking in and were super comfortable from day 1. I spent 10 days on my feet walking from morning to night and never had one problem. At the end of the day my feet felt great! The soles are thick and rugged yet feel so light on my feet. I typically wear an 8 in most shoes/sneakers/boots. However, when I received the 8 they seemed just a bit too loose. I could feel my heels slipping in the back. I ordered the 7½ and they fit perfectly! I could not be happier with this purchase!

from Born in upstate NY, lived in Seattle area for 20 yrs, just moved to Eugene OR. I'm a Certified Occuapational Therapy Assistant, so my work shoes are very important.

This pair is my second pair of Salomons from Zappos. This pair is a different style than my original pair. I like them because they fit like a glove and I have been able to discontinue using my Ortho inserts in these shoes. I do a lot of walking 3+miles daily and they have hurt my feet occasionally. The Zappos representatives have been helpful, courteous, efficient and I will place more orders through Zappos with confidence in the future.

These shoes were exactly what I wanted -- a walking shoe with excellent support and a wide and deep enough toe box. I have a hard time finding shoes that are roomy and have the right support both. I usually buy Keen's, but these are way more comfortable!

These shoes are excellent! I was really looking for a tennis shoe to wear to to watch my son golf when it was cold and wet conditions. I found these instead and was a little wary when I ordered them. It turned out to be one of my best purchases ever! They are so light and comfortable. They have kept my feet dry and warm. They did not need to be broken in at all. To top it off the first 5 tournaments have been cold and wet and the last one it even snowed a little, so you could say I was the best dressed because of Zappos! I have gotten compliments on them and I am sure they rushed home and ordered them too! I love Zappos and I love these shoes!

I got these shoes so I could walk my dogs on trails during our rainy northern California winters without my feet getting wet and cold. I got what I wanted. These are good, comfortable, solid shoes. They have tough soles that will take on more rugged terrain, and they are very supportive. I even like the pretty turquoise color, which is a bonus, because I usually do not care what my walking shoes look like!

I have trouble finding shoes that are comfortable. This one is comfy from the get go and it keeps my feet dry and warm. I also like that these tie like regular shoes rather than the 'pull and tuck' lace.

I bought this shoe as a replacement for my Merrell waterproof lite hiker. It works well for day hiking and trips to the grocery store. The upper is lighter than the Merrell. It fit immediately, has a roomy toe box and is comfortable.

These are great shoes, hard to run in but they are really for the trail more than running. They are a little hard, so I had wear thicker socks.

Love the look of this shoe. However, shoe is pretty stiff overall. Not one you want to leave on all day. Got it for the Gore-Tex, but wasn't as warm as I thought it would be. Wind and waterproof, yes.

I tried on a number of hiking shoes before heading off to Maine. And I so wanted these Salomon shoes to fit. Although they were comfortable enough padding around the house, the moment I took to the streets, it became excruciating to walk. Too narrow I think and not enough bounce. I even bought an orthotic to insert but that really didn't improve the fit. Of course I wore them outside so they're mine. Ultimately I bought a Brooks Ghost trail shoe which has proven to be just what the doctor ordered. Plenty of support and I feel as though I'm walking on air.

I feel this shoe ran a half size smaller. I normally wear a 7 and had to reorder a 7.5. I love Salomon shoes. I own an older pair of hiking shoes and they do not wear out and offered great support. These, though much lighter in weight, weren't the solid hiking shoe I'm looking for. Also, I could feel the edges of the sole on the bottom of my foot, which was odd. Maybe the footbed isn't wide enough?
