I just got back from a trip to Arizona and the Grand Canyon, and I wore these Salomons for the first time on the trip. I was expecting Arizona to be dry and hot, but instead it was cold and very rainy. The locals said it was the rainiest May they remembered. It rained more often than not while we were there. I went on an excursion to see the slot canyons, and it POURED. To get to the canyons, we had to walk through big, deep puddles, mud, and nearly torrential rain in the desert. It also rained the whole time I was at the Grand Canyon, and also for the first half hour of a rafting trip on the Colorado River. I wore my Salomons for all of these excursions, and my feet stayed dry and warm the entire time. Not one drop of moisture seeped through these puppies! By contrast, my traveling companion wore regular hiking shoes and his feet were soaked. Not only that, but the mud and sand that accumulated on my shoes in the desert magically disappeared once we left the desert to go on to other things. My shoes look as good as new. Oh, and they were comfy too. I rarely write reviews of products (in fact, I can't recall writing any!) but these shoes were so great that I just had to let folks know.

A good-looking shoe that's comfortable immediately and has plenty of toe room. So much arch support that I don't need to use the orthotic that I put in other shoes to treat plantar fasciitis.

These are nicely made shoes that look like they would wear well. They have a generous toe box. Several people have commented that they run narrow, but when I put these on, I walked out of them with my first step. My feet have small bones, and narrow heels. If your feet are like mine, these may not fit you well. I had to return them.

The following is based on getting these specifically as a hiking shoe, not as an everyday tool-around-town sneaker. I originally tried the Salomon Ellipse GTX based on its "Editor's Choice" designation within the rigorous testing of the Outdoor Gear Lab's Women's Hiking Shoe review. I also tried on their pick for "Best Buy" along with another pair that they tested. Ultimately I chose these because of the fit, excellent arch support, waterproofness, weight, breathability, and style. I'm generally turned off by the busy visual style style of hiking shoes, I wish they could all be a bit simpler. But I appreciated that these came in a subtler neutral color combination (Thyme/Asphalt) that didn't pander to the ridiculous notion that outdoor gear for women must be wholly restricted to large swaths of purple, pink, or baby blue. Although they had great arch support to begin with, I gave the shoes a slight upgrade by immediately trashing the thin insoles for Superfeet brand Green ones. With a slightly thicker insole and medium-cushion wool hiking sock, I found that my regular size that I buy all my other shoes in was a perfect fit. To note: I have regular (medium?)-width feet, they are neither especially wide nor narrow. As recommended by the other reviews, I also tried a half size down, which I found to be incredibly tight (even without an insole change). So when used as an actual hiking shoe, I find that they are true to size and do not run large at all. Though if you have an especially narrow foot and only plan to wear them with a thin cotton sock, I can see how they would seem too large in that context. After a long weekend of hiking around Zion National park, I'm super pleased with the purchase. Although I wore them for a few days beforehand, they truly required no breaking in. We were out on a rainy day (not torrential downpour, but definitely more than a sprinkle) and they kept me feet comfy and dry. When descending down steep trails, my toes were never uncomfortably jamming against the front of the toe box. The soles felt grippy whether the terrain was wet or covered with loose sand. The laces stayed tied, and tightened with ease when tying. The last eyelet made of metal seems like a great idea. They were breathable yet kept dirt and debris out.

I'd also recommend: Merrell, Anhu

Great shoes! They are a little stiff when you first put them on, but they break in very quickly. Also they run a bit large, so order a half size down. They are very comfortable and very waterproof- I step through creeks and walk in the pouring rain in them all the time and my feet stay totally dry. Also I just hiked 6 miles on the Appalachian Trail in them and my feet were comfortable all day!
