Verified Buyer Reviewed by morinikmd from State of Jefferson on Saturday, July 22, 2017great looking boot-usually wear a 12, but 11.5 fits fine. Light weight too.
Reviewed by Avi from Israel on Monday, June 26, 2017Bought these shoes after many recommendations online. Was 160€. In first glance the shoes are great catch - comfortable, not too heavy, and string structure.
In reality, after 3.5 months of use I can tell that water resistance isn't working well, was crossing low level rivers and water ran into my shoes. Also the shoe sole isn't solid.
Bottom line: good for light trekking, not for rough terrain (or as my friend says it's good for basketball)
Also, wanted to write to salomon, but it's kind of impossible to get them online.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by BackpackingNorCal from California on Monday, June 5, 2017I just put about 10 miles of higher-intermediate terrain on these boots and they are a rock-solid product. Great traction, great support, I feel they will have a good amount of longevity. A few things to note: 1) I have an exact-size 13 foot but I had to go with 12s for this boot (thanks STP for great support!), 2) I have a narrow foot and can't say I'd recommend these for similar - these seemed to be designed for a bit wider foot, and 3) the heels are very hard - as I have narrow/skinny/bony feet, I'm getting a lot of pressure on my heel, particularly left, to the point where it's a smidge painful on incline.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Average Hiker from New York on Tuesday, May 30, 2017Boots appear to be well made. However they were oversized. Size 10 more like 10 1/2 or 11. Thought I would try them anyway and made the mistake of removing the tags and wearing to the store and back.Advised by phone, by Sierra that I could not return them for a smaller size. Guess I have been spoiled by dealing w/ LL Bean & their return policy. Now I am stuck with a pair of oversized boots.

“I would like to ask what is the difference between mens and womens boots (salomon quest prime)?
I know that mens boot size is bigger than female boots but will a size 9us women boots fit a size 8 us men size?
There's typically 1.5 - 2 sizes difference between women's and men's shoe sizes.
I have a narrow heel and normal width forefoot, and because women's shoes are somewhat narrower I occasionally wear them.
I think the sizing difference averages 1 1/2....ie, a men's 10.5 (me) usually needs a women's 12. Occasionally I can wear a women's 11.5. So 1 to 1 1/2 size difference.
The general differences between Men’s and Women’s hiking boots:
Last size. Men’s boots are usually made on a larger last, to account for the additional size and volume of a man’s foot.
Weight. Men’s boots usually weigh more.
Higher ankle support. Usually the men’s version comes up higher on the ankle.
Colors! Designers tend to make men’s boots earth tones, and recently they’ve started to add some unique colors to women’s hiking boots!
