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.
- 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!
- DRY SO FAST!
- SO COMFY!
- 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.
They give me the support I need for portaging and hiking. Every now and then I get a blister from them, but lets face it, if you're hiking with wet feet 24/7 any shoes you wear will give you a blister no mater how much you've broken them in. It's part of being outside!

Price Paid: 120$
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.
Use: Short dayhikes with water crossings
Break-in Period: Never broke them in due to unsatifaction.
Weight: Feel light
Price Paid: $68
