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.

Ordered, it never arrived. Eventually, after chasing, told it never left the warehouse and was just credited (a few days later)

I’m on my feet all day and these are really comfortable and waterproof. This is my fourth pair so they must be good

Pure excellence.

I have had three pairs of these shoes they are superb. Comfortable as soon as you wear them no breaking in period, I use them on the tarmac and across the moors mostly on the tors and they never fail.

Very comfortable walking shoe...

Very comfortable walking shoe gives good grip and ankle support. Able to walk good distance with any discomfort. I particularly like the tightening mechanism that does away with laces, which can be adjusted easily for comfort. No more flapping shoe laces!

The shoes are probably...

The shoes are probably great but unfortunately they are much too narrow for size and I could not put them on even though I ordered half size too large - I do have wide feet but in case of these models it appears a common complaint even for people with regular feet.

Very comfortable, light and...

Very comfortable, light and seemingly grippy (not fully tested yet!). Slightly narrow but very stable. Lace system is neat. Worn all day for several days at an outdoor event and remained comfortable once adjusted.

Never again!

I'm so disappointed by my experience with this shoe. I've tried two pairs and both, after a very short time, split between the upper and the sole, exposing the waterproof liner. Such poor construction

Dry feet and comfortable to wear, what more can you want from a walking shoe..

Never again, awful construction

Initially these were amazing, comfy and awesome on trails, light hillwalking and on the bike. But I've tried 3 pairs now and each and every one of them soon have split where the upper meets the sole.

Excellent shoe, comfortable from...

Excellent shoe, comfortable from day one, and once moulded to your foots shape brilliant. If you walk regularly (5-6 miles a day) they will give you a good 12-18 month wear.
Waterproof to boot!

As good as it gets.

I purchased these 2 years ago absolutely brilliant shoe, hiking, old man running, use them on the bike, and even golf.

You will be hard pushed to find a better all-round product.

Be aware

I think Salomon stopped making these due to fault in manufacture, they split at the side. Salomon have removed them from their site and agreed my set were faulty. A newer leather version is available

Utter per cent waterproof.

On way back to Coatbridge store as I type this. Worn for first time on a short three mile walk this morning. Light rain...completely soaked feet. Absolutely useless, crap. Don't waste your money folks

Great looking pair but did not last very long

After 3 months the soles started to wear out on the ball and heel. Then after a few more months the side just above the ball of the foot split on both shoes exposing the waterproof liner.

Fell apart

After a few months of having these shoes they developed a noise, like a flapping.slapping noise from the shoe. Just recently, the sides of the shoe have split at the ball of the foot. A shame.

I got a pair of these three years ago and they were so comfortable and hard wearing that I bought three more pairs (in case the design changed). Wear them every day and walk 40-60 miles per week.

Very disappointed , expected longer lasting.

Had these 5 months unfortunately the uppers split in the exact same position on both shoes Went back to go outdoors but unfortunately had lost receipt & paid cash told nothing could be done.

superb shoe all the time

I have purchased these shoes every year for 4 years straight now and they are fantastic! I use them for everything as i am an outdoor activity instructor leading groups on walks, mountain biking, roped activities and general day to day outdoor work. They are super lightweight which i love for when i take them to altitude in Wales or France and also pretty breathable through the hot summer season. The nylon quick lace system is so easy just to pull tight and tuck into the special pocket on the top outside of the tongue. Also really comfy. I replace them every year because of the fact that unfortunately any lightweight breathable synthetic is just not as hard wearing as leather or similar with less mesh type fabric. Im willing to spend the money on the performance on my feet.

Quality all round walking shoe

These are an addition to a previous pair of Salomon's from Go Outdoors. These are good quality, comfortable and value for money compared to the full retail price. I thoroughly recommend them as a general all rounder walking shoe.

Strange noise

Very light and looking forward to some miles in these. The quick lase system is strange at first because it is different to normal laces.I should imagine there is a tendency to not tighten enough leaving the shoe loose. I have the habit of just pulling a shoe off without undoing the lase. This combats this by just pulling on the tab and the shoe is loose.
Now getting onto the noise. It started on the left shoe as i was walking there was what can only be described as a slap like wearing a flip flop. Now its on the right one as well. So it can get annoying. ive only wore these a few weeks so if the noise carries on ill take the shoes back. Shame as the shoes are comfortable. The ankles did feel like they were going to get blisters but this has now gone. If your are into hiking and camping, walking the dog they are ideal. Just the annoying noise.
