User Review: Salomon Men's Quest 4D GTX
Price Paid: $169
I bought these boots for a trip to Kilimanjaro. So I needed a very sturdy boot with good ankle support and water resistance. I have fairly wide feet, and prefer a roomy toe box.
I did some warm up hikes in Colorado the summer before, and summited Kilimanjaro on the 7 day Machame trek in January. I experienced very rugged and sometimes very wet conditions. These boots did a very nice job, and are still in battered but serviceable condition.
The boots kept the water out and kept my feet safe from any injury during my travels. The boots felt good right out of the box, and I never had any problems with blisters or any other problems.
The footbeds were not that great (normal) so I replaced them with a new set of green Superfeet. As a single criticism, the tread could be a bit 'grippier,' which caused a problem from time to time. However I am still very satisfied with my boots.
After the trek was over, one of the guides actually asked for my boots. And he was very persistent! So they still look good, even after all of the rain and abuse.
