I own several other pair of Salomon boots, so didn't hesitate to purchase these, but let me tell you, the lacing system simply ruins them. After several months, the strings fell apart, and the lacing eyes are so tiny normal laces won't go through them. Why Salomon put this "system" on them I have no clue. It isn't at all convenient, since they don't lace as tight as any other boots. When you pull the strings tight, there is nowhere to put the extra string, and no matter what you do to "tuck" the extra lacing in it ends up falling out and you end up tripping over it, stepping on it. It is in a word ridiculous. The other Salomon boots I own all have great traditional laces, except these, which are high priced junk as a result. It's a mystery to me, but they are not worth a dime with this lacing "system" in place.

These boots are nice and comfortable -- like every piece of Salomon footwear I've worn, they fit my feet perfectly. And they're just warm enough for winters where I live: not big huge Arctic-grade boots, but perfectly adequate here. And they're waterproof (so far).

So why the low rating? One word: Quicklace. That's Salomon's clever proprietary lacing system. It works great when you try the boots on in the store; you can get nice snugly tied boots with a quick pull of the laces, saving whole seconds of bending over and tying knots. Unfortunately, the lacing system on my boots started to fall apart after only a few weeks of use, and failed completely just into their second winter.

The good news: the boots were still under warranty, so Salomon gave me a replacement Quicklace set. The bad news: replacing the lacing system required about half an hour, two pairs of pliers, a burning candle, and lots of swearing. Not a fun experience.

If Salomon made the same boots with boring normal conventional laces, I would recommend them in a heartbeat. But Quicklace is a disaster.

Bought these for hiking on mountains for long periods of time and they are amazing. Never wore them except right out of the box then once day went to Mt. La Plata and hiked for 17 miles and with smart-wool socks didn't have the slightest problem with them.

I have about 8 other pairs of Salomon's and these are fantastic. I took them on a 4 mile hike with elevation changes of 2000 feet. I ran in them down a steep grade for almost a mile and they felt great. No blisters and no hot spots. They are very comfortable and they breathe well. I am very, very pleased with them and am sure they will last based on how they are constructed. Well worth the dollars.

Would be a 5 star if the lacing system was better.When you cinch them tight the remainder of the laces drag on the ground,so I'm expecting them to break in the future,then what do I do being that you can not change the lace.

These boots need a bit more width.
