Thank you for your feedback.
No problems at all, received when expected, really nice trainers fit very well, very comfortable, very pleased.
well worth the money, very well made, the tightening mechanism is great and preferable to laces.
Used to be a big Merrell fan but last couple of pairs have just fallen apart in the same sort of time frame.

I bought these after reading and watching numerous reviews, which convinced me to give them a go even though I've found Salomon footwear to be a bit narrow in the past. These shoes are no exception, but as my feet are pretty wide to begin with and they weren't 'pins and needles' tight, I figured I'd give them a go.

Straight out of the box, with a brand new pair of 1000 mile socks, I went on an 8 mile hike across fields and through woodlands, and had no troubles whatsoever. No rubbing, no water creeping in, and no throbbing feeling. I should, at this stage, inform you that I weigh 139.6kg, which is around 22 stone. Being able to walk any sort of distance off-road without some soreness is pretty rare even with well-worn shoes, let alone new ones!

I'll admit to being skeptical about the lacing system, but it really works. I had to tighten the 'laces' up after a couple of miles, then loosen them after a couple more, but that's normal. The great thing is this system makes it very quick and easy indeed.

The soles grip very well, the shoes are comfy and easy to adjust, and they let your feet breathe without letting water in. I can't think of anything else that's needed from a shoe like this.

I highly recommend these shoes for anyone that's into rambling/hiking/walking and doesn't need/want ankle support.

I have something to say on this matter. I walk for about 4 miles every day, not really a hobby but a part of my own treatment for diabetes and have been doing this since 2011. When I started I went to Blacks who strongly recommended an earlier version of this Solomon shoe. I have since bought several Solomon shoes and swear by them for all the good reasons, they are light tough good soles and the lacing system is awesome for a lazy git like me. The last but one time went to Blacks to replace a shoe to find that the 8 was to tight and they didn't carry half sizes so went for the 9 which gave me problems, this March I went back to Blacks and bought an eight (the again did not carry a half size ) So wore this shoe up until last week and it was tight to the extent that I developed a corn.
When I thought of replacement this time, I thought about going on Amazon because I knew the shoe I wanted but I knew High street retailers in my experience don't carry the half sizes anymore, I guess its matter of so many styles and their storage space. Anyway, I have since received my 8 and a half size Solomon from this company via Amazon and all is well in the world, I have the shoe I wanted at the right size, my corn has disappeared and it cost £13 less than I paid in Blacks. Hope this helps half sizers !

Gore-Tex (so they're waterproof), comfortable, light, thick but flexible sole and they're easy to put on and take off. I use them frequently - my "default" casual footwear as well as for sports.

For £100+ and Goretex, I would have expected these shoes to be waterproof. But unfortunately, after 30 mins in the rain, they let water in at the front, around the toes and top of foot. They are dry at the tongue and around the foot. I have heard that they have a problem stitching in the Goretex and they have in the past leaked around the stitching under the insole. I will be returning them. As a lightweight, dry weather walking shoe they are excellent, very comfortable. But as a waterproof shoe, they are awful.

Great pair of shoes for low level and trail walking. Would even be useful on some grass/heather free dry mountain tracks if you don't mind lack of ankle support. Nice shoe and love the speed lacing!

Had mine for 6 months, the Kevlar laces have worn through a lower fabric eyelet on the left shoe. Also, the grip on the soles has worn flat on the rear of the shoe.

I have had a pair of Hi-Tek leather walking boots for 18 months now, with no deterioration of the sole.

It's likely you will need to return these within a year, so make sure you buy from amazon direct or a local reseller, otherwise you will be paying for the postage to send them back....... at this price level I expect a minimum of 18 months use, otherwise you are better off buying several pairs of cheaper shoes and throwing them away every 6 months.
