S-Lab XA Alpine

rated 4 of 5 stars Hyper specific shoe for fast scrambles and technical running. Overall these are a pretty hyper specific shoe. If you're looking for a lightweight approach shoe that has superior weather resistance that you can run in for sky running, or fast and light scrambles this is the shoe. For everyday use it's not much good, but nor is that what it was designed for. I've used this in summer, hiking, fastpacking, and scrambling a variety of trails and running in light snow. I've taken them on glaciers and… Full review

Quest 4D GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Perfect backpacking boot. Purchased in 2013 as my first backpacking boot. Lots of research done. Though quite expensive, $230 at the time, they have proved to be well worth the money. First of all, given the sturdiness and protection, they are very lightweight. Many have ditched the boot for trail runners to cut weight, but this is the solution. Great ankle support with important sole protection. Will buy another pair once these have worn down. Full review

Quest 4D GTX

rated 5 of 5 stars Best fitting boots I've ever owned. I'm on my second pair of these and love them. For how light they are, they offer great support—good enough for when packing heavy loads. The Goretex is great in cooler, wetter conditions, but I don't like it when it's warm and dry outside. The boots don't breathe well enough to keep up with sweating and my feet get damp and hot (I hike with extra socks to swap out). The newer version has a slightly narrower toe box than the older model, but even so the toe box… Full review

XA Pro Mid GTX

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These boots saved my feet and allowed me to finish my 1000km Camino. In 2009 I was walking the Camino de Santiago, Northern route. The shoes I had (which are a highly rated Italian brand) were not working well for me. After two weeks of persisting I was almost crippled. I spent almost a full day in a Decathalon store trying on shoes that would work for my feet. Salomon is the only one that seemed to do the job properly.  I bought a pair of Exit Peak II and my life was changed. In 2014 I walked… Full review

X Ultra 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These shoes are comfortable and supportive; stood up to a 65-mile backpacking trek with 35-40 lbs pack; could use a little more toe room. This is my second Salomon trail-hiking shoe. I initially tried the XA Pro 3D, but it just didn't offer enough protection in the sole against rocks. The X Ultra 2 has that extra bit of cushioning that keeps my feet from feeling like they've been beaten with a hammer after miles on a rocky trail. Salomon sizes run a little small, so I had to get a 9 1/2, compared… Full review
