      Comments about SALOMON Men's X Ultra Mid GTX Hiking Boots:

      I've tried many boots over the years, including Asolo, EMS, and Solomon, in search of the best fit for my narrow, long, high-arched, low-profile feet. Nothing was ever quite right, even with footbeds. As soon as I put these on, I knew they were perfect: relatively light, comfortable, and sufficiently durable for backpacking as well as day hikes. I have a pair of Solomon Speedcross 3's that inspired me to try these, and I was not disappointed. I haven't taken them out for a longer overnight yet, and it's a little early to say if they'll be durable, but I have no reason to think they won't be, based on the Speedcrosses.

        This is the best fitting boot/ shoe out of the box ever. I was concerned when ordering because very difficult to find correct/ comfortable shoe. I spoke with an online chat rep & she assured me they run true ~ she was right. These shoes are so comfortable I use wear them daily. They are so light and offer so much support by the end of a 16 hr shift my feet are no longer sore & fatigued.

          Comments about SALOMON Men's X Ultra Mid GTX Hiking Boots:

          I wear these as an everyday shoe. It feels comfortable and sturdy, but have not had a chance to really put it through its paces. It wasn't the shoei was originally looking at purchasing, but for my first pair of Solomon's, I'm definitely enjoying my decision.

          I do wish the toe box was a little bigger, but for having long, narrow feet, the overall fit is good.

              Comments about SALOMON Men's X Ultra Mid GTX Hiking Boots:

              I was a HUGE fan of the Salomon Fastpacker boots that were discontinued so I purchased these when the Fastpacker soles wore out. I wore these on three hikes, about 30 miles total. After the first few miles of a hike, I would experience extreme discomfort in my instep, in the soft tissue toward the top of the boot under the laces. There's a leather reinforcing piece and its top edge would dig into my foot due to pressure from the laces. Loosening the laces didn't help much. The area was painful for several days after a hike. I threw in the towel after 3 hikes and returned the boots.

                  Have not had the chance to REALY test the performance. Feels good but I could have used an "E" width. With lighter socks it will be fine! Good traction and wet weather performance and comfortable.

                    Comments about SALOMON Men's X Ultra Mid GTX Hiking Boots:

                    Very comfortable. Used as an everyday boot in New England late winter / spring conditions (snow, rain, mud). Online search for my next hiking boot had me convinced that I'd be purchasing a pair of Zamberlan 230's, but after trying both in another store, I realized the Salomon's were the better boot for me. Found them on sale at EMS and that closed the deal. I did replace the insole for Superfeet orange soles, so that ate up my discount savings, but I prefer the Superfeet soles. The left boot can be a bit noisy on my foot. I can hear the gore-tex liner with each step (like crumpling a baggie), unless I tighten the laces just right. Minor issue because the ability to adjust the laces to improve the fit works well with these boots. However, the laces are sort of slick and come untied pretty easily if you don't pay attention to them. They're new, so I can't say much about their longevity, but they appear to be very well made. A couple of minor issues keep these boots from rating a perfect 5, but so far I'm very happy with this purchase.
