Started wearing the quest boot about a year ago. Love the boot, great support ,looks and comfort. Good grip on pine needles hiking in the Colorado Mtns. It's the top of the quest line, I thing the liner is better than the lower priced (originally at list) pair I have. Could feel it the moment I lac... Read More

    These seem to be a well made pair of boots. I've only had them a short time but they are quite comfortable and the soles have good grip. Good buy for the $$$.

    Used to hiking about 20 km with over 700m elevation in rocky. Stand in the creak to help other hikers to get over with a single wood 'bridge'. It kept my feet dry for the 7 hours hking. Others got feet wet due to the snow melt on the top of their shoe - not this one.

    This is full (hi-rise) gortex boot, with great foot and ankle support, and great out-of-the-box comfort. It has good deep treads, but its supple (maybe delicate?) mid-sole that emphasizes springiness over protection from rocky surfaces. The cushioned insert is likewise too thin to offer protection. I substituted some firm-bed inserts I had in the boots I was replacing and, viola, a perfect boot for day hikes on rough terrain.
    Not an expedition boot, but excellent for light-to-moderate hiking.

    I ordered these about three months ago and usually I'm really happy with Solomon products, but these felt kind of strange when I put them on. At first they felt kind of lumpy in the arch area and they also felt about a 1/2 size too big. I figured they just needed to be broken in so I walked around in them for a few weeks and they still felt strange. so long story short, I replaced the insoles with a $14 pair of Dr Scholl's Heavy Duty Support insoles. They feel like a $500 dollar pair of boots now. The original insoles were not supporting my arches enough and my feet were not sitting forward enough. I'm very happy with them now.

    I've read a few other reviews about Solomon shoes and I would tend to agree that Solomon has not been keeping up on their quality control, especial on the insoles. I have another pair of relatively new Solomon boots that suffer from the exact same thing- bad insoles.

    I would recommend these if you don't mind swapping out the original insoles for new ones. The originals are paper thin and have no arch support. But they breathe well, keep my feet dry and are very comfortable after wearing them for hours.

    Since they're made like sneakers, I thought maybe I could get by with the same size that I wear in dress shoes (the largest size STP had available). Not happening. Well, maybe with dress socks it could've worked, but hard to conceive of hiking in real thin socks. With heavy socks it would've taken at least a 1/2 size larger, if not a full size.

About Salomon

The legendary Salomon outdoor equipment company was founded more than 60 years ago in the French Alps by Francois Salomon. After developing the world’s first self-releasing ski binging in 1966, the company continued to grow and innovate new products. By the early 1990s, the brand had taken the wintersports market by storm with Salomon skis made using cap construction, a totally new innovation at the time. Salmon boots quickly became famous for their balance of performance and comfort on the slopes. By the turn of the century, Salomon snowboards were helping athletes push themselves in the park and powder. Today, Salomon continues to be an industry leader, with products that range from skis and snowboards to hiking boots and trail running shoes.
