Men's Salomon Footwear Size Guide

Measuring tips

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.

Feet: Measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two. 

  1. Place a sheet of paper on the floor and against a wall
  2. Make sure you are wearing the same socks that you would normally wear with this type of shoe
  3. Wearing these socks, stand on the sheet of paper with your foot perpendicular to the wall and your heel against the wall.
  4. Then use a pen to draw a line just in front of your big toe. Repeat for both feet and take the longer distance to determine your size.
  5. Using a ruler, measure the distance between the wall and the line you drew to find your size.

Remember, feet can expand over a quarter size during a full day's walk so ensure you get the right fit.

Very comfortable and lightweight. 20+ miles daily without any problem.
Perfect fit for narrow feet.

Poor grip on wet.
Lacing could be better.
Hard to clean up.

Thumbs up from me.

Great boots super comfortable but never waterproof.

Now on 6th pair, super comfortable, a pair lasts for about 2500 miles, not waterproof at all. I would like to write more but with only 200 characters its pretty pointless really .. Great Boot.

Poor grip in the wet.

Light comfortable boot but wet weather performance on rock and hard surfaces is very poor.

Problem with split, but no problem obtaining refund

The most comfortable boots I have owned. Unfortunately the upper started to come away from the sole after 15 months of moderate use. Salomon have a simple online system and have given me a voucher.

starting splitting

the sole started to come away from the upper after around 10 months of wear and they start smelling after getting wet a few times, I cannot recommend these at this price point

Fantastic comfort straight from the box

Only had these boots for a short time but walked 10 miles with no discomfort straight from the box!
They seem very well made and they have a lot of cushioning, this does make them warm though.

Great boots

I've had these over a year now and they are excellent boots, lightweight and very comfortable.

Design flaw.

After a six mile walk my small left toe was rubbing on the bottom lace attachment. If you run your finger along the inside you will feel it. Never had that with any boot. Lesson learned, avoid.

honest review

purchased these boots on the 08/02/2019 used them for a week of dog walking 3 & half mile a day just to get the feel of them, saturday 16/03/2019 first over 10 mile hike roseberry topping , captain cooks kildale, guisbrough (13 mile walked in total) good points regarding the boots, very comfortable indeed, did not suffer any rubbing, or hot spots whats so ever, when walk was complete no foot fatigue at all, bad points,on damp, moist, or wet, (pavement, rock, stone slabs) the grip from these boots is none existent i must say i really struggled ascending & descending on any form of wet rock surfaces , however on wet compact mud surfaces the boots performed very well indeed as they did on DRY rock surfaces such a shame salomon need to address the sole situation, will continue to use boots oniy in dry weather, back to my trusted scarp delta gtx for wet weather hiking

Comfy but leak

These boots are very comfortable but started to leak after about 20 months. Didn't get round to taking back till after the 24 months deadline for Salomon. Apparently Goretex doesn't last beyond 24 months.
Back to leather boots for me next, meanwhile I'll get a bit more wear out of them using waterproof socks.

As you would expect from Salomon.

Brilliant boot.
I have used these boots for about 10 Munro’s and I haven’t had any problems with these boots and have remained waterproof.

I would recommend a wee walk first to walk them in as they put pressure on the instep part of my feet for the first few hours but once walked in they fit well and are very comfortable.

Utilise the Go Outdoors price promise and save yourself around about 30 quid.

Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 GTX® Men's Hiking Boot

Had Salomon trainers before and decided to get a bit more protection/comfort for winter walking. These mid height boots with GTX membrane keep feet dry all day, puddles and saturated fells are no problem. The boots fit well, are much lighter than leather competitors and the grip/traction is great. Will buy Salomon replacements when necessary without hesitation.

Not waterproof

Very comfortable, light-weight walking boot. I was very pleased with them until I walked in them in the rain. They're not waterproof and I returned from my walk with wet feet; very disappointing.

On a positive note, the staff at Go Outdoors were excellent and exchanged them to a different pair of boots without any problem whatsoever; excellent customer service.

Have exchanged them for a pair of Scarpa leather boots, which although need regular waxing, can't be beaten in wet and muddy conditions.

Great comfort but not waterproof

I have had 4 or 5 pairs of this style of Salomon boot. i find then incredibly comfortable but there is no way they are waterproof. I did the C2C last year in a older pair and a the Cleveland way this year with the newer design, not a single blister on either walk even when my feet were wet or damp ! If only a waterproof version could be made they would be perfect. Still the best fitting boot for my awkward feet, Going to combine a pair of seal skinz on my next long distance walk hoping this may resolve the wet feet problem ! A pair usually lasts about a year ( 2000 plus miles ) which in my mind is ok.

Good lightweight summer boot

A decent light weight summer boot. Feels more like a trainer than a heavy boot.
Would recommend for summer hikes carrying little or no weight.
Would not recommend for winter or if carrying weight as not a huge amount of ankle support.

Great boot

Very comfortable, breathable and waterproof, nice and light and non clumpy like most boots

Lightweight boots

Robust, lightweight and comfortable walking boots. Have completed many miles in these now and really impressed. First pair of Salomon boots and highly recommended
