Verified Buyer Reviewed by kubotaman from ohio on Thursday, May 25, 2017These 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 $$$.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cal_Buyer from Calgary,AB on Thursday, May 25, 2017Used 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.
Reviewed by Cctus Jon from Austin, TX on Thursday, May 18, 2017This 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.
Reviewed by Sunil from Wilmington on Wednesday, March 29, 2017I 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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by PaOldGuy from Pa on Friday, January 20, 2017Since 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.

I can't find size 5.5 for Men's boots on Salomon's size chart. Would you be able to share with me the EU size equivalent? (It would say on the toungue of the boot and/or on the box.)
My pair is size 9 men's US. The UK equivalent is 8.5.
I hope this helps you.
The EU equivalent to a US men's 5.5 is generally 37.5

My wife and I both love these boots. It is true they have a very large toebox. Your hubby's feet sound like my wife's. Plus, Sierra I will always love you exchange or return. I'd say go for them, they are wonderfully made boots, I'd wager they'll fit just fine.
I have a black pair and these browns are the top of this line, and I think have a sligh edge on comfort.
