Product Description

Reach your hiking goals with help from Salomon. The waterproof Discovery GTX hiking boot delivers dynamic cushioning and 2D stability for all mountain traction thanks to its 2D Chassis. A protective toe cap and heel cap allows you to safely navigate the trails. Also, the boot's ortholite sockliner creates a cooler, drier, healthier and better-cushioned environment for your foot. Walk a mile in this boot and you won't want to walk a mile in any other boot ever again.

Engineered with the wearer's comfort as its key design principle, a waterproof, split suede leather and waterproof GORE-TEX lining have been implemented throughout the boot's upper to deliver unsurpassed waterproofing capabilities. A gusseted tongue allows air to enter the boot whilst remaining impervious to dirt and debris. Additionally, protective heel and toe caps offer vulnerable areas substantial protection from aggressive terrain. Waterproof spilt suede leather upper reinforces the boot's construction to give impeccable waterproofing capability, The bootie construction is weaved extensively throughout the upper therefore preventing water from entering the Boot. A Sensifit System and heel strap both serve to secure and cradle the foot to provide a more secure fit, whilst an Advanced ChassisTM located between the out and midsoles maximises motion control, energy management and push through protection. Delivering optimal traction on varied surfaces, Salomon's Contagrip® outsoles uses the ideal combination of specialised rubbers for each specific use, A protective toe cap gives toe protection in mountain and trail environments. A rearfoot heel cap provides stability and protection also, whilst a heel mud guard is a reinforced protective material used around the base of the shoe. A gusseted tongue allows air to enter the boot whilst remaining impervious to dirt and debris.

    These boots fit very well and are super comfortable so far.
    Alan Heaton
    I can't yet speak to their longevity, but so far they are solid in the construction, so I expect that they will perform well for a long time to come.
    Italia
    They're light and fit snug like a glove while also offering very good ankle support.

    First let me start by saying I am merely a day hiker, nothing extreme or expedition. That being said I have worn merrel for alot of years. So this time around I needed something a little higher for support and wow. These things do fit like a slipper they are extremely comfortable to wear. The laces are tough since I usually pull pretty hard on them and the hook lace system I have always preferred. Some people say these fit like a ski boat and I could see that perhaps as Salomon makes Ski Boots. I just got back from a weekend from leyus caves to mt. adams and goldendale area. I forgot I was even wearing these things. What I mean by that is, "there wasn't anything I noticed like heel strikes, sore foot, blisters or anything that would even have me look down as if something felt wrong. My new favorite hiking shoe/boot.

    These were the best hiking boots I ever owned for the first couple days. I had a trip to Haiti coming up and after much research and experience with other brands (Merrell, etc.), I decided on Salomon's Discovery GTX hiking boots. They performed admirably in very steep and sometimes slick/wet conditions in the mountains of Haiti. After a day or two of use, I was simply tying them in the morning, preparing for that day's hike, when with very little pressure one of the grommets/rivets that hold the laces in place snapped and popped off. Incredibly disappointing and that failure left me in a really tough spot while abroad. I'm still waiting to hear back from Amazon as to what to do. Apparently support at Salomon is very difficult to get ahold of.

    That said, for the first day or so the boots were everything I hoped they would be. Comfortable, lots of support, required no break-in period, good grip in varying conditions for the most part, waterproof as advertised, and ventilated enough that my feet didn't get hot in warm/humid conditions even after wearing them for 8+ hours/day.

    I'm really hoping this was a fluke, which is why I'm giving two stars instead of one. I will update this review depending on the outcome of this situation. My friend's $25 Walmart hiking boots held up better than the Salomons - that ain't right.

    I've worn - and worn out - many pairs of Merrell, LL Bean, Vasque, Keene, and other boots over the years. Most of them have been okay, though my bunions have split seams (Vasque) and Arizona rocks have worn treads early (Merrell). Salomon boots aren't perfect either, but they have consistently been the most comfortable boots I've ever worn, both out of the box and two years later when there's no tread left. This is my third pair, and once again they are a delight.

    Color Name: Swamp/Thyme/BlackSize Name: 10 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    I have two large dogs, a Great White Pyrenees and a Mastiff/sheperd mix. I take the dogs for long walks in sometimes wooded areas. Both dogs have high "prey drives" which means they can take off at the drop of a gat at the sign of a squirrel or rabbit. I have tried wearing "tough" hiking boots before for leverage on the sometimes wet ground, but with 190 lbs on claw and fang and muscle pulling it was sometimes hard to plant my ground in order to hold on long enough to distract the dogs from the animals. I bought the Salomon GTX hiking boots, and so far haven't been disappointed. Nice fit and completely waterproof. I like it.

    Having received these boots it was time to go hiking so I organized a hike on the Overland track in Tasmania Australia.
    It was one of the best hikes I have done and the conditions were demanding but the Salomon boots handled wet, muddy and rough conditions with ease.I would recommend this boot for harsh conditions.

    I really wanted to love these boots, but they were just run of the mill boots. They would be fine for the average trail hiker, but I was hoping to use them for hunting in Arizona desert... They just don't do the job with traction, and the materials are already wearing out due to all the scraping on brush, cactus (which goes right through the material) after about 5 days. I would have expected them to hold up a bit better as they looked thrashed (they were put through a pretty good beating though), and the material isn't as high quality as I wanted. I'll probably spend a bit more and try Lowa boots as I've heard good things...

    Seattle has lots of rain. This shoe is particularly suitable for Seattle residents. And it is cozy and tight, too.

    I purchased these boots in April last year and as all reviews state they are super comfortable. Now the bad points, they are not waterproof by any stretch of the imagination, light shower- feet soaking. They are very noisy, squeaking whenever I walk in them and finally the soles are worn down to nothing after 8 months wear- in the main light trail walking with the dog. Very poor in my opinion and Salomon are impossible to contact!
