I bought these for biking in the summer. They feel great and are very cool and light. I haven't tried the fold down heel, but I plan to do that when the need arises.


  • Lightweight
  • Good ventilation
  • Quick adjustable lacing
  • Lace pocket
  • Reinforced lace loops


  • Lacing material is thin

I bought these on eBay. The shoe fits my foot well. I wear a size 7.5 in regular shoes, so the 7 fit perfect and there is room for a sock. I love the easy adjustment with the lacing and the reinforced lace loops look like they'll last forever.

I got them mainly for biking and hiking in the warmer months and they are great for that. I have not worn them in the water yet. They are cool, as the air can breeze through the mesh and cool the foot.

Can't live without these!




  • The mesh will tear over 5 years! :P

Love these shoes! I'm a canoeing/portageing guide and I couldn't live without these shoes! I've worn mine for 5 years now and the mesh is completely gone on them, but I still wear them for their comfort and for how fast they dry.

Very disappointed in these shoes. They rubbed the back of my ankle and slipped very easily on wet rocks. My husband also bought a pair and was disappointed. His $15 sandals were less slippery on the wet rocks then the Salomon shoes. I do not recommend these. However, they do look pretty cool and were lightweight, but I don't think that outweighs the negatives.
