5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent out of the box wear
By Amazon Customer on August 15, 2018
Amazing boots. I initially tried these on at a local REI store in order to figure out the correct fit. For myself, my Brooks GTS 17 tennis shoes (size 13) and these boots (size 13) were in sync with sizes. The boots were comfortable right out of the box, and I wore them around the house for a couple of days before wearing them on a 45 mile hike. I wore boot socks, no sock liner, and at the end of the first day, no blisters. I tried a couple of different lacing configurations before finding one that worked for me. Second day, we did another ten miles through some pretty rocky ground and heavy vegetation. The boots gripped well in almost all circumstances, with the exception of some pretty extreme angles. I crossed logs over a couple of streams, grip was great. No blisters the second day, either. The last day we walked 25 miles out, averaging about 19 minute miles. At the end of the day, I had a nickel shaped blister forming on the ball of my foot, that was it. Afterwards, I looked the boots over and there was some small (dime sized) gouging out of the soles, but nothing major. Fabric held up great, they are Gortex so they're on the warm side, and they performed extremely well, in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars They don’t hold up & they are not waterproof. Colorado elk hunt gone bad due to new boots.
By Erik on October 2, 2020
I bought these for a Colorado elk hunt and they came highly recommended. I put about 20 miles on prior to my hunt and they fit incredibly well and the comfort and sturdiness and traction on these boots are unparalleled. Unfortunately I have to write a two star review because on my six day hunt my boots failed miserably in 2 areas. First my feet get wet from walking through wet grass with gator on (which covered the majority of the boot except for the toes and bottom sides) But the tow portion of the boat going back about 4 inches got pretty wet and it’s soaked right through into the inside of my boots and my socks. I could understand if I was crossing a stream or walking through a lot of puddles and saturated them that way but these boots should never get wet soaked through the toe to the inside from walking through wet grass. The second issue I had is that the rubber starting to delaminate from the toe portion of the boot. These boots were not cheap by any means and I intentionally bought extremely high-quality boots so that I would not have issues. I have only owned these boots for two months and I have only used them for about 50 miles of hiking and they are beginning to rip out. And they are not waterproof.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the cost. Durable and dependable!
By matt on January 3, 2019
Had the prior version before this and trail run in SpeedCross4s.... love Salomon...In 3 years I took them through Yosemite, Big Sur, Colorado rockies, Banff, Glacier, North Carolina, and many many rocky wet trails in PA. Stayed waterproof until the end. Held together so well I didn't realize how broken down they had become. Tread is improved on the new ones and they are significantly lighter than the old boots. Fit feels just as secure and comfortable. Will update on durability. If you watch certain colors will magically go from 230 to 180.. I'm not particular about color. But saving $50 for camp food and beer money is a big deal!
