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 Chassis™ located between the out and midsoles maximises motion control, energy management and push through protection.

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.

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.
***Edit*** All the above was true, until the rubber sole began disintegrating. While the ankle support remains firm, on both shoes the heels and forward soles have lost rubber, exposing the underlying plastic base. There is a noticeable squeak when walking from both shoes. I've used these on house floors, yards, some sand and stone, some forests, but not under heavy loads nor particularly sharp terrain (e.g., hard lava fields). I'm now looking for other shoes.
great boots! very confortable.
