I have worn these daily for the past 4 months so now feel comfortable commenting on my first pair of Salomons for the past 8ish years. IMO Salomon lost their way around 10 years ago with quality, sizing and longevity issues and to be honest these haven't wholey disapeared.
I live on the edge of the New Forest so use them for walking most weekends plus wear them daily in a fairly physical job involving outdoors, office, walking, lifting plus the odd 10+ mile walk along bits of the souhwest coast path.
The boots are back to their old levels of comfort and this pair at least have stood up to all manner of abuse. Tread is good and decent for most day to day conditions including rocks, shale, flint, grass, town, puddles (just) but asa you should expect has issues with rougher terrain. They are not without fault though having developed an annoying squeek when walking and they definatley are not waterproof. Regular puddles, wet grass and as I now know snow and you can expect wet feet. The upside is they dry out fairly quickly being man made material.
No problem recommending these boots for general purpose and summer walking but I will be will be keeping my waterproof boots for wet or harder conditions.
