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.

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

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.

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.

A gamble pays off

I've been wearing Meindl for years and didn't think I'd ever wear anything else. However when my last ones finally gave up I was tempted by these Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX. After an initial feeling of having made the wrong decision, I can now,having worn them on every dog walk over the last couple of weeks and on a beautiful walk in the Cairngorms last weekend, these shoes are SUPER comfy with loads of support. What had initially felt like an overly tight shoe, now feels like one with plenty of support and a sense of snigly hugging my feet. The Quicklace system has taken a bit of getting used to, but has proven itself to be invaluable for quickly getting the shoes on and off when heading out with excitable pooch/coming home with muddy feet. The shoes feel durable, though time will obviously tell on that front. Walking downhill on potentially slippery gravel tracks, I've felt entirely secure and confident of not slipping, especially important on those days when I'm out walking with my 3 month old son strapped to my front! Love these shoes!

A painful disappointment

I like these shoes but they hate me, I’ve had them 2 month now and I still need to wear blister plasters on both my heals to prevent them from rubbing my heals raw. I have a pair of Solomon boots which I love as they are as comfy as slippers, I was hoping that these shoes would prove to be just as comfortable but they aren’t. They are the right size (checked by Go Outdoors staff). They are well built, look good, are waterproof and have excellent grip I only wish that they didn’t want to cripple me. I may have to bin them and buy some Merrills

Return buyer

This is my second pair of these shoes. The first were so comfortable that there was no need to try any others. I like everything about them. The fit, the ease of lacing them up, their waterproofness and the grip and stability of the soles.

Even better than before

This is my fifth pair of these excellent hiking shoes just when you thought they couldn’t get any better they are instantly the most comfortable pair yet quickly moulding to your feet they feel like you have always had them perfect for my upcoming trip to the Pyrenees thank you go outdoors

I purchased the above walking shoes for my husband after he tried of at least 10:different makes.
They are beautiful to look at and very light to wear.

My first pair of Salomon and I love them, so far so good

Very comfortable and pretty tough and durable. The only flaw these shoes have is the lacing system. After a few years of use the thin laces eventually cut through the fabric eyestay
