Comfort right out of the box

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jack from Michigan from Michigan on Thursday, January 19, 2017
I wanted an inexpensive pair of boots for walking the lava fields for an upcoming trip to Hawaii. My understanding is the lava fields can shred a pair of boots, so I definitely did not want to wear my beloved Alicos. I was about to order a pair of $40 hiking boots when I saw these Solomons on sale for $80. I respect the name Solomon, and I figured if they survived the lava fields I would have a decent pair of hiking boots whenever the Alicos were impractical. To my delight, these boots were a magnificent buy. They were extremely comfortable right out of the box and great looking. I typically replace the inner sole in all my boots, but not these. The inner sole is the most comfortable I have ever worn. The ankles do not rub, the toe box is wide enough to give the toes wriggle room, and the overall fit is spot on with no slippage in the heel. They weigh less than my Alicos, so I don't fell as if I am wearing "weight boots." I have been wearing these boots as my everyday shoes because they are that comfortable. My dilemma is do I want to risk these boots in the lava fields. I like them too much to have them shredded. I will probably spring for the $40 pair I originally intended to buy, and save these Solomons as another favorite pair of boots.
