      This pair was my 2nd pair. Had to get a second pair because the first pair wasn't waterproof. They changed the color but not the faulty waterproofing. These boots should be billed as water resistant instead. Will be taking them back.

        I have about 25 miles on these boots in Pennsylvania wooded trails(rocky). Very comfortable, good traction and support. All my boots/shoes I wear a 9, these were too big in 9 but the 8.5 feels great.

          Comments about SALOMON Men's Discovery GTX Hiking Boots, Swamp/Thyme:

          After about 4 years and hundreds and hundreds of miles, I retired my first pair of GTX Discovery boots and bought the same boot again because I liked it so much. Very comfortable with a very quick break in period. I can not comment about the arch as the first thing I do with a new hiking boot is put in a new set of SuperFeet insoles. My hikes are typically 2-5 miles at a time with the dog, 12 months a year. Trails often contain rocky areas where you are stepping from one rock to the next. These boots do great on this type of terrain with the firmness of the sole and the traction they provide. Great all around hiking shoe!

            Comments about SALOMON Men's Discovery GTX Hiking Boots, Swamp/Thyme:

            First time out with these was in a complete downpour and walking through shallow streams. Had no problem with rain getting in. They are warm even with regular wool socks on with temps in the mid 30's, and my feet tend to get cold easy.

            I wasn't too worried about traction since most of my hike was level but they don't have the best grip on wet rocks. I'm sure a few more hikes will help soften the sole to grip better.

              Took them right out of the box and spent a weekend hiking 10+ miles with a 45lb pack and they were great! Was a wet weekend and the boots dried right out. Highly recommended.

                Great purchase. I use them for everyday wear and sometimes I am very active and on my feet all day. Comfoirtable, war, sometimes too warm if its hot out, break in time was in the middle. The lacing system takes a little getting used to but, once you do, its great. Water proof with excellent traction. Clean up easily.

                I saif low arch but, I used an orthodic so, its not a fair assessment.

                I recently used these boots on a backpacking trip in the Adirondacks. The trail conditions were pretty rough and VERY wet. Most of the other people who were with me experienced wet socks because of leaky boots, but not me! I walked through bogs and rushing streams and my socks stayed dry throughout it all. VERY pleased with the waterproofing! They were also quite comfortable and required no break in. My only concern is that the treads will wear through as they are already showing wear after minimal usage. But other than that I am super pleased.

                    The are light and comfortable. The best seems to be no break in required.

                    I took a chance and ordered these boots online without ever owning a pair of Solomon's... and I'm glad I did. They're great! I was looking to upgrade from an uncomfortable pair of non waterproof boots, and these are working out very well so far. While I have not yet tested these in rainy conditions, they have been used on wet trails, and trails with stream crossings, and the Gore-Tex liners have kept my feet dry. I'd also like to mention that on descents my toes bunch a lot less than than other boots I've owned in the past. Break in time was almost non existent. After wearing them for a couple hours around the house I felt like they were ready for trails.

                    I've rated these boots four stars. I dropped one for traction. In dry conditions, they've been excellent. But when things are wet I recommend paying close attention to your footing, especially when traversing rocky trail sections. This probably seems like common sense, but I feel like better traction is obtainable, and probably the only way this boot could get any better.

                    Overall, this is a great boot and I will certainly consider buying again when my current pair gets worn out. Highly recommended.
