I just finished a 20 mile backpacking trip in the Kolob Terrace section of Zion's National Park, bringing the tally of miles I have on these boots to over 150. Fifty of these miles are heavy backpacking miles. These boots have held up to my weight (I've lost 50lbs since I bought them) and all types of terrain. I've had them muddy, wet (more on that later), in light snow, sand, sharp rocks, slick rocks you name it. I'll break down some of the great things about them:
1- Light but strong. These boots are light and breath well yet they are fascinatingly strong. The side grommets lock the laces to keep the your foot right where it needs to be. The materials have held up to serious and continuous beatings. The toe guard has held up well to rocky terrain.
2- Ankle support. These boots provide excellent ankle support without an over zealous reduction of range of motion. This has saved my ankles time and time again as I've slipped or tripped on uneven terrain.
3- Traction. Superb is all I can say. These boots grip when they have no business gripping.Read more ›
I couldn't find a store local to me to try these so I went to a couple stores to try on Salomon trail shoes to get a reference point. Here's what I can tell you. I wear a street shoe size 11.5 and I was able to get into the trail shoes with both 11 and 11.5 wearing running socks very comfortably. I decided to go with 11.5 for the Wings Sky GTX 2 to accommodate for the size of my hiking socks. They fit perfectly. I think I could've gone with an 11 but I'm glad I went with the 11.5 to have that little extra room/cushion.
- Light. When they arrived I couldn't believe there was anything even in the box.
- Comfortable / No break-in - I wore them out of the box on a moderate 10 mile and they felt like I've been wearing them for years. We camped in the catskills and hiked some of the 3ks there and I left them on my feet all day (except to sleep) and couldn't have been happier
- Lacing system - They lace up nice and snug and with the mid lace hold, they don't slip even when wet/damp
- Ankle support was great. Couple instances coming down hill where I normally would've rolled an ankle these held strong
- Traction - Has been great so far. Haven't had a chance to test in really muddy or snowy conditions yet, but will get the chance in the next coming months.
Haven't had any yet but will update as I log some more hours in them.Read more ›
I bought them a year ago in preparation for the 77 km experience of the West Coast Trail in Vancouver BC (look it up, then find time on your calendar to hike it - it's awesome!). I needed boots that were tough, waterproof, and agile/lightweight. These Salomon fit the bill. To break them in (which turns out to be completely unnecessary, as these things fit perfectly right out of the box), I took them on a few day hikes in the Cascades, a multi-day in the Sierra, and a multi-day in the Uintas. I figure I put less than 100 miles on them.
They lived up to the hype. Comfortable, incredibly light weight, excellent traction, and presumably waterproof (other than splashing through a couple of creeks rock-hopping across, they really didn't get tested).
Three weeks ago I started the West Coast Trail adventure. The first two days were fantastic. Long distances over fairly easy terrain and hard-packed sand. The boots allowed me to make good time. Day three brought more challenging terrain and lots of water crossings. I had my Salomons laced up tight, wearing full length water-resistant pants, with 100% waterproof knee-high gaiters. At the end of the third day, I was surprised that my socks were wet.
Day four brought more surprises, as I could actually feel and hear water inside my boots as I walked (all praise goes to SmartWool socks for making this tragedy bearable). I inspected them that night and saw that a hole had worn on the top of the boot where it creases as I step, allowing water to literally pour into the boot.
I dried the boots every night, but no sooner did I get water on the boots, the feet would be immediately soaked.Read more ›
