Had to send back two shoes of another brand as they had flaws. I was concerned that these might be too heavy, but that has not been a problem.

I am writing this review after wearing a pair of these boots in almost every outdoor situation for nearly 3 years. I have put on about 200 miles of backpacking, and another couple hundred in hiking with no pack. I have narrow feet with high arches. These boots fit my feet perfectly. I have never had a blister or even a hotspot. Virtually no break-in time. The insoles are comfortable and I can go very long periods with no discomfort. The mid-soles of these boot are a bit on the soft side. More suited for hiking than carrying a load. If you are carrying a load and going over rocks, you will feel them on your feet. The boots are very light. I have done many creek crossings in them, and they have never leaked. These are the best hiking boots I have ever had. I'm on Zappos right now to upgrade to another pair of Salomons. The best advice about buying any boot is to find a brand that fits your foot well, and stick with it. If these fit your feet, you won't be disappointed in their quality.

I love these boots! The second week I owned them I climbed Mt. Mitchell in North Carolina. It was a muddy, rotten mess because it had rained for a week straight. If I wasn't scrambling over bare rock then I was stomping through a perpetual mud puddle up to nearly my ankles. 16 hours and many miles later, I arrived back at my truck with dry, comfortable feet. I couldn't believe I made it all that way without so much as a wet toe, an unduly sore spot, or a blistered heel. These boots are rugged, durable (owned them for close to a year now and they look pretty much the same as the day I bought them), and stylish. My only complaint with them is only a personal preference for laces that stay in their loops all the way to the tops of the boots, and these have to be popped back in the top two loops whenever you're putting them on. No biggie. I wear these for daily use and occasional hiking and couldn't be happier with my purchase. My recommendation: buy them.

I highly recommend the GTX. I rush ordered them right before the big snows hit Chicago. Great solid platform. Hiked several 4 mile loops. They are warm, waterproof and breathable. Even in the below zero weather they did the job without any extra socks. They look good I even wear them to the office. I get a lot of questions on Salomon as they are not as well known in the Midwest. Great buy, you get what you pay for, and you get a lot with this boot.

I'd also recommend: Keen , New Balance , Born

I'm a runner and love the salomom brand running shoes. I thought I'd give the hiking boots a try. Accustomed to ordering this brand a half size bigger for best fit. Love this boot. Very breathable with great support. Easy to break in. In the Hindu Kush right now and will be hiking the Himalayas in 2 weeks. These boots are ready to go!
