MY SALOMONS FELL APART EIGHT MILES INTO YELLOWSTONE. Do you see that grey material along the top of the sole? It disintegrated. The sole then separated from the boot. Yes, the shoes were out of warranty. So, they are great for one hike, but you never know when they are going to quit on you. The same thing happened to my son's boots that were not quite three years old. Salomon had no appologie due to age of both pair.

With 30+ years of hiking and backpacking experience, these are the most comfortable boots I've ever worn - right out of the box! After waterproof application (Nikwax), they can go anywhere. I am susceptible to pronation problems and am really happy with the ankle support. Also weight to ruggedness and strength is great.

I'd also recommend: Asolo, Vasque

In my seemingly never ending quest for hiking boots, the Comet 3D came darn close to being the one. At one point in my search I remember looking at my ever-comfortable Mizuno running shoes and thinking Why can they not make hiking boots that fit like this? In fact, they do and the Comet 3D must be one of the best examples. I love the way they hug the instep and open up in the toe box, leaving plenty of room for toe spread. The construction seems good. The plastic lace loops are a little odd on such expensive boots, but if Salomon stands behind it for two years, I guess it is OK by me. The sole stiffness is perfect for light to medium backpacking and the boots are easily comfortable enough for day hiking as well. The insole is actually decent compared to other brands that offer almost no support and padding (Lowa, Asolo for example) and basically expect you to pay some more for a third party insole. Similarly, unlike so many hard-backed backpacking boots the rear of the heel area is flexible and padded, making it a decent option for people like me who have bony heel protrusions called Haglunds. Initially I experienced some very minor heel slip but this was basically alleviated by adding a liner sock beneath my light to medium weight Merino wool socks. The real killer was that the boots were too narrow in the mid-foot area. In the store and at home I thought it was just snug, but after taking it out for a serious walk the outside edges of my feet ached for days. I really don t think this is something that breaks in - it seems built into the midsole frame. To test this issue I recommend taking out the insole and placing your foot into the boot. If the outside edge of your foot feels cramped without lacing up, that is a clue that the boot is too narrow for your foot. I had the same issue with the Quest 4D, which I otherwise loved. I am seriously bummed as this boot seemed otherwise to fit really well and gave me no perceptible heel issues.

I'd also recommend: Scarpa, Lowa, Hanwag, Asolo, Mammut

These boots did not require any break-in. I enjoyed excellent footing hiking from the summit of Haleakala down the Kaupo Gap. Others were in a hurry to take off their boots at the Paliku Cabin, but I was comfortable keeping these boots on. I had no problems walking in a narrow track through tall wet grass that others got wet from. I highly recommend these boots.
