These boots saved my feet and allowed me to finish my 1000km Camino.
- Solid construction
- Good support
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 from Seville to Santiago de Compostela, over 1100 km.
I could not buy the Exit peaks as they were discontinued. I opted for the XA Pro Mid GTX.
To my pleasant surprise they were even better than my previous Salomons.
These are (for me) by far the best hiking boots I have owned. I'm onto my third pair now and will likely stock up on another pair in case they are discontinued. :)
