    Salomon X Ultra Mid GTX Hiking Shoes - Men's is rated 4.7333 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly light & supportive boots I was looking for a lightweight and sub 200 dollar pair of boots. I was initially looking at the Vasque 2.0 Breeze GTX and these boots. Trying on the Vasque and then these was night and day. These boots fit my slightly wider feet and am sure can accommodate a wide range of feet (just cinch up the laces and you're good to go). I have a medium width foot that's just a tad wider but not enough to fit into wide sizes. The Vasque boots didn't have enough toe wiggle room and seemed more stiff in the sole compared to the Salomon boots. When I tried on these Salomon boots, they were really comfortable and felt like a broken in pair of comfy trail running shoes. The ankle support is phenomenal, super light-weight, excellent stability & cushioning, and break in is virtually none! My wife and I did a quick 10.5 mile hike on various terrain from fire roads to rocky areas (uphill and downhill) and the only minor gripe I have is the insole. The Ortholite insoles are horrible and will be switching them out for a pair of Superfeet Orange. The Ortholites, although have adequate cushion, lack any arch / heel support. Before I switch out the insoles, I wanted to break these bad boys in but within the first hour, they were fitting like I had worn them for years. I feel like I can run, hike, and scramble over rocks in these boots with no issues. One thing to note is that certain Superfeet insoles are not suggested for boots with a waterproof membrane. For example, the Yellow, Copper and Black have these "ridges" under the heel that will wear through the membrane at the heel portion of the boot - so be warned! Definitely recommend Salomon boots - I'll be buying more pairs from them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed flawlessly I broke these in on day one on a multi-day backpacking trip on Section "K" of the PCT. I came across various terrian and ascended and descended on loose rock with ease. They performed like ATV tires on my feet. Nice and light weight boots for light backpacking. Conditions of the day: 90+ degrees, 7,200-8,200 ft. elevation, 36 lb. backpack. Good shock absorbing and okay ankle support. The fact that they are Goretex made my feet a little warmer due to the 90+ day, but were still comfortable (no blisters through the use of these).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great general purpose travel/hiking shoe Purchased these for a trip to Morocco and Spain where I would be doing a lot of walking, both in cities and in the desert. They worked great, as they were comfortable enough for walking all day, are lightweight, and don't look like serious, clunky hiking boots, so I could wear them to dinner and such without feeling foolish. The only downside is that they are not very breathable and get quite hot; some better ventilation would make them perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Performance I wore them in the Selkirk Mountains of Northern Idaho on a 4-night backpacking trip to two different mountain lakes with 1500 and 2000 foot elevation change, respectively over 15 total miles. The terrain was forest trail and rock. These shoes were flawless and stayed dry at the end when I stepped in ankle-deep water to test them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like these boots I like these boots. Lightweight for mids. I added green super feet and now have perfect arch support. I have not worn more comfortable boots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy I purchased these shoes right before a backpacking trip through Redwood National Park. The fit great right away and didn't need any breaking in. I tried a few of the Salomon's trail shoes, but found them to be too narrow for my relatively wider feet. However, their backpacking shoes fit great and were very comfy. I wanted an athletic feel and I got it with this shoe. I can go out a job a couple miles with these shoes if I wanted to. The only con is the cushioning. They've worked great so far, however, I did have a chance to try on a Keen, which had much better cushioning. I went with the Salomon's for the athletic feel.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfortable REI asks for a review shortly after purchasing, so I haven't had an opportunity to put a lot of miles on these boots. It hasn't rained yet, so I can't comment on how well they work in the mud. So far, they are quite comfortable for day hiking. I liked these because the sole is not as stiff as some boots that I tried on.
