Comet 3D GTX®

My boyfriend is an avid hiker and outdoorsman, and he typically wears out a good pair of ($200+) waterproof hiking boots in a year's time. He decided he was ready to try a pair of Salomon to replace his beloved Danner and Meindl boots. The Salomon boots showed up quickly and in excellent condition (as always, thanks Zappos!) and he was eager to try them out. He took a short 1-hour walk around the farm on a rainy day, and upon his return to the house he discovered that his socks were soaked in the toes, and the outer material of this hiker had actually ABSORBED the moisture rather than repelling it, as any waterproof boot would normally do! If you get your nerve up to try the Salomon, keep in mind that if you're going for the waterproof feature, it's an absolute FAILURE for the money, and you will spend your money better on a Danner or Meindl product (these have withstood 2+ years of daily hard use). On the upside, these fit perfectly like a sneaker, straight out of the box. Since there isn't a way to return these after the wear and tear the boots have taken, they'll be kept for dry day use only! Good luck!

Pros: - Lightweight (nice change from heavier hikers) - Quality stitching/construction (better than most in this price range) - Waterproof Cons: - Too flexible for moderate+ hiking - Laces don't stay tight - Size was slightly big, but sizing down by half was too small (subjective Con) They're described as a light waterproof hiker, and they are truly light, however I think they are more flexible than an appropriate mid-height hiker should be. If the ankle is too soft, you're not getting much support, and coupled with the flexible sole, I don't see much point in even having a higher cut here. I suppose if you want the ability to splash through deeper streams/puddles it makes sense, but really how often is that situation going to come up? Additionally, I found in both sizes I tried on, that I had to really crank down the laces to prevent heel slippage. This isn't a major problem in and of itself, only it becomes one if the laces won't remain tight. Due to the raised metal-bar eyelets, the laces don't have enough friction to stay in place. This means they glide easily when tightening, but as soon as you hit the top hooks and try to tie a knot, they slack up. I think all Salomon would have to revise to prevent this would be to change the second eyelet from the top into a second pair of hooks, and maybe set them below the the other eyelets. A hook there would lock your lower lace setting in place and also pull your heel in. I came really close to keeping these, because they felt more comfortable than most of the boots I tried on previously, but ultimately I felt these few issues outweighed their positive attributes. These are boots that don't really know what they want to be or do. They're like everyday-wear high-top shoes that are trying hard to be hiking boots instead. Only, you can get everyday walking shoes for less money. That being the case, I don't think these fulfill a proper role in the shoe "quiver", so I decided to return them. It's still a well-made shoe though (love the Salomon brand), so you might want to try them (Zappos makes that easy).

These are very comfortable but NO breathability! Three miles into my run and my feet felt like they were running in swimming pools. Total bummer! I always have bought the gortex shoes and loved them. I'm now ordering the gortex ones. Think I'll save these for walking.

More than I would normally pay for a pair of trail runners but worth every penny. These shoes fit so well, have incredible lateral stability and are built to be punished. The perfect fit has a lot to do with the tricked out locking lacing system.

I have worn Salomons for years and always loved them. This is the first pair that haven't worked, and they didn't work big time. My normal size of 8.5 was too small so I ordered a 9 and then saw what wasn't apparent when my toes were squished. These sneakers are very uncomfortable! The padding is pretty non-existent, but it wasn't billed as nor does it look like a minimalist sneaker (which I also wear). Just walking around the house I could tell immediately that they were going back. This is Salomon's first foray into road sneakers and they need a few more iterations before working, at least for me. Their trail shoes are awesome, so far I'm not a fan of this new venture .

If you're looking for Grass Volleyball Sneakers... these are the best ones I've ever tried. The comfort is amazing and the traction is hands down the best i've tried (without using bulky cleats).

Took 'em for a 4 mile walk upon arrival- was impressed with overall fit and besides, their wild and crazy colors make it fun! The lacing system is fast and the heel foam area near the Achilles isn't too high, which irritates on other styles of shoes. Highly recommended!

These shoes were comfortable from the first time I put them on. Very roomy toe box and perfect for me. Very hard to find. I need the cushioning and the good arch support. Love the color!

I just got these and love them. I haven't had a pair of athletic shoes that I really love in a long time--these are really fun and stylish, and also feel great. I was planning to buy Asics because they are so comfy--but my feet always felt tight in those--and would fall asleep after wearing them a couple hours. These have lots of support and space in the toe box which is great for my wide foot and frequent ingrown toenails with pressure from shoes. I have only wore them running errands and stuff--but I am sure they will be great with exercise. I like the laces--super easy and fast. My husband liked them so much he just ordered him a pair. :)

I have worn these shoes on gravel trails in the mountains for a month. The sole is very grippy and keeps my feet from slipping. The fabric covering the shoe is thin and has already torn. But the sole is perfect and that is what matters most to me.

First time I've ever returned a shoe because of comfort. This new shoe was broken in on the cobblestone streets of Prague but broke my feet. I love the cable lacing system, yet this system with its deadend lace lashed across the big toe knuckle to little toe knuckle is a killer. No way this shoe can ever be my everyday go-to shoe.

I bought my first pair of these to wear on my hikes and loved them so much that I bought a pair to wear at work. I am an OR nurse and these are the first shoes that were comfortable right out of the box, and my feet never hurt even after walking 10-12,000 steps per day at work. They do have a wider toe box which is awesome for me since i began to develop a bunion from Danskos. I just ordered 2 more pairs...a new pair for work and one for everyday wear. Oh, and my first pair for work was the bright blue and I got compliments on them from almost everyone at work. Best shoes ever!

Awesome traction, almost like spikes. Felt very light with great support. Wish Salomon would make a wider width shoe, the Speedcross 3 GTX seemed narrower that D width. definitely buy a 1/2 size larger. Here's hoping someday Salomon realizes there are Americans with wide feet.

I have been plagued with sharp pain in my right food from osteoarthritis and lowering arches due to aging. My son in law is an Army Ranger and told me his colleagues strongly recommend Salomon shoes for long hikes and comfort. I got these shoes and 75% of the pain went away. They are the best walking shoes I have ever had.

Same old reliable and comfortable Salomon fit -- just a bit stiff which I assume is because of the waterproofing. They did not take long to break in and they are my go to shoe this "Spring" in Maine (i.e., freezing temps, snow, mud).

I really wanted to like this shoe based upon the numerous positive reviews and the fact I own a pair of Salomon boots that I love. The style of this shoe is great. The problem I had was the sizing. I started with a size 9, which I normally wear, but my toes were crammed into the front of the shoe. I exchanged them for a 9.5 but my feet were absolutely swimming in those. I'm really bummed these didn't work out for me. Thankfully Zappos has a great return policy. Now, back to my search for the perfect shoe.

I loved the Salomon 3D Ultra 2 because of the excellent arch support. I wanted summer shoes and chose this model thinking it would be similar. If I had not worn them a full day the first time, I would have returned them. I was very disappointed; there is limited arch support. Though attractive, I feel they are over priced and over rated.

I love the shoes, but hate the laces. I don't get why there's any need to make tying shoe laces easier, is there an adult who's having difficulty tying their shoe laces? Anyways, in order to tighten them so the shoe doesn't slip off, the really thin lace digs in and causes some discomfort. The support is otherwise excellent. I couldn't wear them for the full 12 hour shift because the top of my foot hurt from the darn dental floss shoe lace.
