Upgraded to these after my last pair of solomans started leaking within warranty period. Yes very comfortable but after 3 years of intermittent use and regular cleaning and waterproofing with nik wax these also started leaking. No matter how good the fit these boots aren't worth bothering with if like me you value dry feet!
Totally solved my foot problem....., 05 June 2014

Which is very tender heels.
Bought these in the Kidderminster store a couple of weeks ago, (patient and knowledgeable service by the way) Excellent comfort straight our of the box, and lack of the all-too common horizontal seam at mid -heel height seems to have totally solved my problem with soft heels. Broke them in over three x 5 mile road walks with no hot spots or any discomfort whatsoever, and did their first proper duty over The Roaches t'other day.
They're very light, the laces didn't slip at all as yet, and I note others have mentioned reproofing sooner rather than later, I'll keep an eye out, but that's easily done. Like someone else mentioned, also had to go up a size, curious but not an issue. As to tread depth, yes of course they're shallow, could the chap who criticised this not see that in the shop and chosen something else ??
So far the best choice I've ever made in well over half a century of walking. My first Salomons, and hopefully not my last!

Bought these boots a couple of weeks back - always been a fan of synthetics over leather just for the wight and nimbleness. I completed the 3 peaks challenge the weekend i bought these - straight out of the box - total comfort, obviously they became more comfortable as usage increases and they were exceptional over the 3 hills.
Strong points - Super comfort straight from box.
Expectional ankle support with the locking lacing system and higher fit - stopped the ankle rolling on a number of occasions.
Orthalite sole give great comfort in any walking
Very good waterproof properties - although i can imagine reproofing is needed.
No blisters or sore spots on the feet after hard walking.
Very grippy soles.
Weakpoints - Salomons decisions with sizing - (usually a 12 but had to buy the 12.5) slightly roomy but thick socks coupled with your feet swelling while walking -
Laces are frequently coming undone -
Struggled in the Snow (although understandable as they aren't mountain boots.)
Would highly recommend to any UK walk and similar terrain. Good for heavy walking with heavy packs.
Outstanding!!, 02 May 2014

Bought these boots only a few weeks ago, but proved to be an extremely effective boot on my Dofe Gold expedition. didn't leak once, so all those reviews about leaking are rubbish. only cons are the laces they kept undoing but replaced them with bungee laces and are perfect now. overall a brilliant boot for the price.
A Thousand Miles in, 20 April 2014

I have just purchased a new pair of boots. I didn't purchase a second pair of thee despite them being excellent.
I bought these in 2011 for the Coast2coast and they were like putting on slippers. Very comfortable straight from the box. I did around 500 miles in them prior to the C2C and then the walk. I had one small blister which wasn't bad as I was carrying close to 30kg on my back for 11 days. (My friend gave up on her 3rd day as she had no skin left on her heels) I felt comfortable at all times and still wear these boots if there is a lot of road walking. I still haven't found a pair which are as comforable to walk in. I have only one issue with them and this is why I have changed to a different boot. The grip is pretty shallow which is fine for general walking but I did find that wet rock and wet grass are an enemy and I don't feel there is enough traction and grip..
I also find that you can feel rocks through the boot if walking on stony terrain. Apart from this issue, they are the best boots I have ever owned and certainly so comfortable you can run in them.
This is a quality 3 season boot and I have read elsewhere about waterproofing issues. I can honestly say that these boots have never let me down. I have walked in some pretty rough weather, across streams and through bogs and my feet have always remained dry. I would recommend these as a good first boot for those who don't wear boots and if cared for properly, will never let you down. With a better and deeper tread, I would definately have bought these again.
I have a medium width foot but narrow heels so the heel fit is the most important to me.
