    Salomon Ellipse GTX Hiking Shoes - Women's is rated 4.5405 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfort & Support Most impressive: No break-in required at all and very light weight. I used these shoes for the first time (with no prior breaking in) on an 11.2 mile strenuous hike over long & steep terrain including uphill/downhill and over roots & rocks. The shoes remained perfectly comfortable, supportive, and light for the entire hike. I expected to have issues around mile 4 or 5 and was pleasantly surprised to be perfectly comfortable at the end of this hike. Achilles Bursitis: My previous mid-height hiking boot aggravated my right Achilles Bursa (retrocalcaneal) to the point I was not going to be able to hike even short distances in them. I was having a difficult time finding a shoe or boot that did not aggravate it. Even regular tennis shoes were problematic. The Salomon Ellipse did not rub the back of my heel or aggravate my Achilles bursa issue at all. There seems to be a wider opening that avoids the Achilles bursa area. This was a big relief and the primary reason I changed hiking shoes in the first place. Stability: The Salomon Ellipse kept my arches and ankles well supported over very steep rocky root-covered terrain. Traction: I noticed approximately 15% less traction with the Salomon Ellipse vs my regular mid-height hiking boots. I slipped over some of the dry rocky areas where I do not recall ever slipping in my mid-height boot. Traction is the only downside to this shoe I have noticed so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty dandy shoe It's made from synthetic leather - so you're wearing a cruelty-free shoe. And it feels like you are walking on a cloud. Just no comparison with any other shoe! The toe box is larger than most shoes - and I like this as well because my second toe is longer than the others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great shoe This shoe is great. A lot of shoes you have to work in when you get them. I used this shoe the first time and they did great. They were super comfortable and very light, great for a long distance hiker like myself. A bit about my feet: I have wide, flat feet, and this shoe worked well with my feet, not too narrow as I find most shoes are, and the lightness makes the long distance feel even less. Love the lace tie-ups and the sturdy feel over all. Finally a nice light hiking shoes that fits and looks good as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hiking shoe Very comfortable hiking shoe. Have done a couple of day hikes on trail,rocky one as well as asphalt walk and no break in needed. Will use for my next long distance hike/walk on the Camino de Santiago Compostela in Spain.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Shoe! I decided on this shoe compared to the Vasque Mantra GTX shoe. Love the roomy forefoot and light weight relative to the narrower Vasque. The Solomon laces easily and more comfortably secures the shoe for a great fit and improved arch support for my high arches. The removable inner sole could provide a little more cushion, but a gel heel cushion does the job for me. Comfortable out of the box. All around- a great shoe and value for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing hiking shoes! These shoes are great! I go hiking twice a week and I finally needed to replace my Merrell shoes. I knew I was going on a long backpacking trip when I was searching for a new pair of boots. I'm not a fan of boots being above the ankle, but that's just my thing. I wanted a pair that would be waterproof because I new I was going to be crossing some creeks on certain hikes. During my trip I slipped by a creek that was literally ice cold and my feet were first into the water. My feet and socks didn't get wet! These are also breathable on warmer days, which is hard to find with waterproof shoes. They also gave great support while carrying a lot of weight in my pack. I wore them on 2 warm-up hikes to see if I needed to break them in, and it wasn't necessary. These are super comfy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe! I was getting ready to travel to the UK. On my previous trip I started out with bad shoes and was limping by the end of the first day because I tend to power walk on vacation. Wanting to avoid that, I knew I needed some great, sturdy shoes. The problems I run into with shoes are that my narrow feet easily slide around the extra wide toe-boxes of many hiking shoes on the market these days. Also, I dearly wanted a shoe that didn't have any leather on it. I searched for two days and couldn't believe it when I found the Salomons! The shoe does not feel too roomy inside and my heel was staying firmly in place. I did have to go down a half-size, however. The arch support felt strange at first but I think it was because of how unsupportive my other shoes were. I suffered a severe back strain injury recently and while wearing these shoes, I did not have any additional serious problems with my back, which to me is a HUGE deal. They are very comfortable and are probably the best pair of shoes I have ever bought.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First pair of low top boot! This was the first pair of low top hiking boots. We do section hiking of the AT yearly and my last pair of boots tore my toenails up due to my foot sliding forward. I was VERY concerned that I would not get ankle support on the Trail. I did not miss the high top boots. These were amazing boots. They were lightweight and my toes had room to prevent rubbing. My feet never got wet either and we had rain everyday. I took a ton of time trying them in the store and I hope you will too. I would purchase this pair of boots again.
