Closeouts. Move more quickly on off-road adventures with Salomon Synapse hiking shoes. They're designed with an injected EVA midsole and OS Tendon technology that allows feet to naturally roll through every stride.

Very high quality and comfortable shoe. Feels sturdy and well made. I really like the shoe-lace system although it's not as easy to loosen but it's super easy to tighten. I haven't tested these on a long hike. I've been using them as daily shoes to break them in first. I'm thinking these might make very good travel shoes for an upcoming trip to Europe.

So far I have enjoyed the shoes. Lots of padding and good support. A little stiff but breaks in after walking around the yard. Yet to have hiked a long distance in these. We will see how they feel putting on some longer miles.

I wore these shoes the entire day and they were incredibly comfortable right out of the box. It did not seem like they needed any break in at all. The arch support is very good and the shoes provide very good cushioning from the sole. They are very light weight and you don't even realize you have shoes on. I typically go with a heavy leather hiking shoe because I have great luck with them and they are dependable. I had no issue with the draw string during the entire day, it stayed tight! I am very pleased with these lightweight hiking shoes and I would purchase them again.

I recently hiked 100 miles with not a single blister in the Synapse and I would give them 5 out of 5 stars but the tread began ripping off by around the 70 mile mark. No quality shoe should be falling apart after such low mileage. I have contacted Salomon and they are going to address the issue.

These shoes are super comfortable. They are supposed to be trail shoes but I would say they are more like a sneaker. I love them but wouldn't recommend using them for backpacking or hiking. Fit was true to size and the speed lacing is a cool feature.
