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.

Very happy with the performance these Salomon Discovery's provided. Just back from a trip to Montana with lots of walking, hiking, and fishing and even had them on for 48 straight hours due to the long drive and no complaints at all. Great grip while scaling river rocks, great traction. Also the most important is how they kept my feet dry while fishing river and lakeside with stepping in the water a bit. Didn't submerge them, but definitely enough to where a lesser boot would have wet my feet. Also good rock hopping on the rivers, with stepping in the water here and there...great dryness. Breathability also good...like I said , had them on two straight days and feet were fine. All in all a good boot at a great price. Would definitely buy them again. It's a tough little boot...lightweight, walking around town or hiking Glacier Nat'l Park. I used them extensively and glad I bought them.

These shoes are great so far. The are snug on my feet. Make sure you waterproof if you are going through wet grass. Good traditions. I wore them for 3 days camping and were very comfortable. No. Blisters. Shoe laces come untied easily with out double knot. Strong tread and toe. I had keen before but they were too wide and I had to pull too much of the center over to fit.
