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

Speedcross 4

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, tough, comfortable. I have put over 500 miles on these in technical mountain terrain. Would not trade them for the world, except for a new pair. Full review

Quest 4D GTX

rated 1.5 of 5 stars My Quest boots started collapsing in the heel construction and popped out this sharp tooth of some sort of composite material from the sole. It is sharp and has cut me on hikes, and sliced my Goretex pants. Beware! I don't like bleeding on hikes due to the risk this creates with bears. Beware! Full review

X Ultra Prime CS WP

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very comfortable, well built, good looking, hiking shoes.

But as an everyday shoes they are perfect, very comfortable, not too stiff, but not as flexible as running shoes, giving them, in my opinion, the perfect balance between flex and support. I… Full review

Evasion CS WP

rated 4 of 5 stars These were on sale for C$95+tax at Atmosphere (Canada) and I needed a pair of trail shoes that would be fine for road walking. These are the largest size (11 US) I've ever bought, as they must fit on small side but very comfortable on trails and roads. Waterproofing does well and grip is good. Comfortable right out the box. No problems with heel-slipping or pressure points. Grippy sole with deep cleats and slipping was never a problem on trails, but likely not built for rock climbing. Full review
