    4.5 stars. Loved these sneakers. I realized after researching/prepp'ing for my first Mt. Washington, NH hike, I couldn't use my nike free's (5.0 with Sorbothane Ultra Graphite Arch Insoles) and needed a pair of actual hiking shoes especially for rock paths and the snow.

    Overall, so happy to report that these shoes not only held up (the ortho insoles are heavenly) but I also didn't need to break them in at all. Mt. Washington was my first hike in them, taking me 6hrs to reach the summit and I bought these a day or two before my hike! Naturally, my legs needed to get accustomed to the "extra" weight (which wasn't too much at all considering what these shoes were sparing me from) after only hiking in nike free's for so long. Only minor drawback is the drawstring laces. It felt a little loose at the end of the lace where you tighten (where my ankles are) and a bit snug around the flat top part of my foot. I could see this leading to chaffing if people have different socks. I wore thin drymax socks with these sneakers on the hike and I was okay. Also, the small plastic mechanism that they have you use to loosen the laces is very stiff. I'm also afraid that the plastic mechanism will wear out the laces over time. Only time will tell.

    These fit perfectly right out of the box. There is more cushioning than In my previous pair. I have a very narrow foot and these fit without thick socks. There is plenty of room in the toe box to wear my thicker wool socks though. The sole is thick, rigid and has just the right amount of traction. The best part is they are waterproof. The laces take a bit of getting used to, but the metal lace holder is well designed. There are less expensive hiking shoes, but these are the best overall. Time will tell if they last like my older pair.

    Best hiking shoes ever! Fantastic bottom tread makes for downhill hiking a lot more fun. Love the tie strap instead of shoelaces and never came loose during hiking. Comfortable. No blisters. No painful feet after hikes. Highly recommend!

    Warmed these babies up with a trip up Mt Mansfield in VT. They were super grippy for the rock slabs and breathable enough for a hot and humid day. You can feel the slightly stiff sole and good arch support as soon as you slip it on.

    Bought for my girlfriend for when we hike. She was always slipping going up hills or trails. These helped SO much. She loves wearing them but like most shoes, they need to be broken in to be super comfortable.

    Love these shoes. This is my third pair of this line of Salomon gortex shoes. Change them out every few years due to thread wear. Comfy, waterproof and great tread. A little hot in summer weather but great in all other temps. I have stuck my feet in a stream almost completely submerged and my feet stay dry!

    By far the best hiking shoe I’ve bought in a long time. I wear these in the garden so they take a serious beating. I’ve ruined other brands like Keen and Merrell within months. I think I’ll get a second season out of these. No problems whatsoever!

    Love Salomon and got these for a great price. Great sturdy shoe

    went to Rome just after buying these and really glad I took them with me. It rained constantly for 4 days and my feet were bone dry the whole time. My husband has Merrels which he loves but no gortex so feet were wet (and smelly). These are a more narrow fit than Merrels which I had last time.
    Very supportive shoe, I was walking 30,000 steps a day in Rome according to my pedometer and I didn't have one blister. Winner!

    These were advised by Salomon for me due to having a knee replacement and I needed good trainers for work as a postwoman walking 8 miles a day. So I got the black and red ones for work and then these blue ones for leisure so my joints are always looked after. Absolutely love them.

    You need to buy a larger size than normal. Other than that - they are very comfortable. I’ve had similar Salomon walking trainers before and they are very hard wearing.

    I’d already purchased a size 6 which I am and they were too small...reordered 6.5 and they are perfect. Good comfortable walking shoes. Advice -go up a half size.

    These are super light extremely comfortable and yes best walking pair of shoes the wide fitting makes such a difference. Plenty of breathing room 5 stars and more

    Great walking shoe, very comfortable and waterproof

    Unfortunately these were smaller fitting than other Salomons I’ve work for the past few years and a I had to return them.

    I am a size 4.5 but bought size 5 for 4.5 is a bit too tight with thicker socks. Like the look and colour. Shoes are quite stiff so will need wearing in.

    Purchased these for my wife who seems extremely pleased with them


    Had several pairs of Salomon women’s ultra . Comfortable, reliable .

    Neat, fits as expected, great value shoe

    Have worn them several times now very comfortable,supportive and kept the water out

    Extremely comfortable and look great.

    Ottime per il trekking, hanno la caviglia abbastanza alta (per questo possono risultare un pò scomode per il trail), hanno un ottimo grip ed una buona tenuta termica.
    Bisogna stringerle bene perchè altrimenti in discesa il piede scivola troppo in avanti e tocca sulla punta della scarpa.
