Leather Upper and Lightweight Midsole for Stability

The Comet's waterproof nubuck leather upper securely holds the foot in place and keeps your feet dry on wet trails. The tall shaft protects against ankle injuries, while a molded EVA midsole reduces overall boot weight. A heel strap further promotes stability.

Waterproof Gore-Tex for Year-Round Hiking

The Comet's breathable, waterproof Gore-Tex lining reduces hot spots so your feet stay comfortable in warmer temperatures as well as in cold, wet conditions.

Contagrip Outsole and 3D Chassis for Sturdy Grip

A rugged non-marking Contagrip outsole has an ascending lug pattern in the front and a braking pattern in the rear to provide extra traction for rough terrain. The 3D advanced chassis between the midsole and outsole reduces ankle strain and controls flex, enhancing your stability. An oversized tendon provides a smooth transition from heel strike to toe-off with plenty of energy return.

OrthoLite Footbed Keeps Feet Comfortable

The OrthoLite footbed is designed with cushioning foam to reduce friction, keeping your feet comfortable as you run. EVA in the heel provides extra cushion for heel striking.

Gilly Lacing System for Customized Fit

Gilly lacing on the Comet 3D GTX boots ensures a customized fit for a wide variety of feet, while a gusseted tongue relieves lace pressure and keeps trail debris out of your boots. A rubber toe cap protect toes from abrasion.

    The boots feels light on my feet for how much support they provide.
    I feel the fit was right, I am a wide toe area and the fit was snug at first but has fit to my foot nicely.
    The boots fit perfectly right out of the box and required no break in time whatsoever.

    This is my first review on Amazon because this boot is too good to not have any reviews. I wore the Salomon Comet 3D GTX on a couple short walks before hiking a 2,000ft ascent over about 12 miles. They felt great with very little break in. I would say they're ready out of the box. Grip is excellent up loose rock and dirt. I don't even bother aiming for rocks when crossing streams any more and my feet never get wet inside the boot. The only downside is that the boot will be a little warmer than a fully ventilated boot, but the trade off is well worth it to me. I did a 20 mile hike last week with a 3800ft ascent through a few snow fields along the way and the boots felt great. They did well in the snow until the slope became very steep, then I had to make quite an effort to get my footing before taking each step. I guess that's what crampons are for. They're very stable downhill in regular conditions through dirt and rocks. It's obvious that the boots make a huge difference when I see how surefooted I am compared to people with less capable footwear. The boots feels light on my feet for how much support they provide. It's been the perfect hiking boot for day hikes in the mountains. I highly recommend these boots to the recreational hiker. I'm very happy with my purchase and quite satisfied with the quality, performance and look of the boot.

    I have a pair of Vasque Bitterroot boots in 10 wide which I love, but being all leather they are a bit too warm for spring/summer hiking, so I started looking at boots with a bit more breathability. Ended up ordering the Vasque Breeze and a pair of these. My feet are a bit wide so I got the Salomons in 10.5 as they do not have a wide size.

    I received both pairs of boots a day apart. I could tell these Salomons were just better made than the Vasque (of course they are $60 more, but they seemed well worth the extra money and then some). Both boots fit well, but the higher quality of the Salomons and protective toe covering was too much to pass up. The Vasque Breeze just seemed flimsier. All my research seemed to indicate that Salomon boots were excellently crafted, and getting them verified that. Not that the Vasque Breeze were bad, but just seemed average. The Bitterroot also feels top quality FYI.

    So far I have taken these Salomons on one hike. Very comfortable for a first hike. About 70 degree weather in Harriman state park, a nice 6-7 mile hike up and down on rocky terrain and into a cave mine. no issues with temperature and comfort, or grip and ankle support. Can only get better with a little bit of break in but they don't need much to get started. Planning on taking these out quite often this year and will update review after a couple of months.

    Really my only negative comment is that these boots run about half a size smaller than my shoe size. If you tend to hike in cooler temps and wear thicker socks, I'd recommend going a full size larger than your normal size. Otherwise, these boots are one of the best pairs I have ever owned. They are supremely comfortable and break in very easily. A day or two of moderate walking will do it. They look very nice in the Moab orange-- not too flashy, but remark worthy. I wore them daily during the four months I was in Afghanistan and they came out of that experience with only the most superficial scuffs. A wipe with a damp cloth cleaned them up and they still look remarkably good. So far, the boot's waterproofing has been fairly well tested-- I have walked through ankle deep water and not a drop got through. I have walked in the rain and my feet were the only part of me that stayed dry. The boots have great stability and ankle support for moving over difficult terrain. The soles have sufficient grip for climbing and descending fairly steep grades. One minor thing: The boots do not breathe that well. For me that has meant fairly sweaty socks at the end of the day. If you are considering these boots for long term excursions in hot or humid conditions, I would factor that into your thinking. As far as I am concerned, this shortcoming is so minor that it doesn't even take away a star from the boots' rating. These are excellent, versatile boots that deserve your consideration.

    These are very comfortable after a fairly short break in; which was about 4-5 days for me, but I wasn't doing that much. They fit well on my feet, and the lacing system works perfectly well. Note that it is not Quick Lace, if that matters to you.

    First test hike: ~10 miles across heavily forested mountains. A massive amount of fallen leaves were a constant theme, which could have caused loss of traction. Especially on some of the steep sections, which clearly had not had anyone on them recently.
    Results: These boots grabbed anything I stepped on. They had a wonderfully aggressive feel: I was running alongside the trail, across more difficult/steep terrain, just for fun.

    These seem pretty great so far, I will update this once I have a couple more hikes in them.

    I bought these to replace a pair of Salomon XA Pro 3D GTX Mids size 8 that are a tad on the small side. I ordered the Comet 3D in size 8.5, but found they had the exact same sole length as the XA Pros, and an even more crowded toebox. I've had the XA Pros for a little over a year, and they are extremely light, and for the most part, comfortable. I did experience some pretty good toe-jam on longer descents, and wanted a little more support, traction, and wiggle room for the toes in the Comet. The size 8.5 Comet is no larger than the size 8 XA Pro, and the last is not nearly as comfortable. I already lost both my big toe nails on my last 14'er hike, and am not going to repeat the same mistake again. I could have exchanged for a size 9 and taken my chances, but aside from the crowded toe box, the overall fit and finish of the Comet was sorely lacking compared to the XA Pro 3D, so I'm returning for a refund and trying a pair of Vasque Talus WP's instead.

    You might ask why I didn't just order a pair of XA Pro 3D's in an 8.5? Three reasons; the lace system on the XA Pro 3D is kind of hit or miss. Sometimes it holds your foot securely, but most of the time it slips, leaving the shoe loose and unsupportive. The second reason is breathability. Although Salomon uses Goretex in both the XA Pro and the Comet, they aren't very breathable. What's the point of having a waterproof shoe, if your foot gets soaked from the inside? The third reason is the contagrip sole. I have never been impressed with Salomon's proprietary soles on any of their shoes, and the XA Pro is no exception.
