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

      Hiked with boots right out of the box on seven miles of very hilly and rocky section of appalachian trail. Very comfortable without any problems. Did get caught in heavy rain for half the hike with rain getting in over the top of the boot but if I had rain pants on to cover the tops my feet should have stayed dry. Traction was good on wet rock and mud. The synthetic materials helped for the boot to dry more quickly.
      Great boots.

        Will use these boots to hike 1000km on the Via Francigena in Italy. A better product than the Ultra Mid 2, which I had purchased previously.

          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.

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

            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.

                    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.
