Boots arrived within two days and I've worn them for the first time today. The actual boot is quite high and seems to offer good ankle support. When laced up the boot seems to hug your foot and feels really nice and snug. I have just walked a few miles in the snow and they felt very comfortable without any leaks. Time will tell but first impressions they are an excellent product with a super fast delivery service.
Fantastic service as usual from the team at Outdoorkit. The boots are amazing too, wider fitting with great ankle support. This is the second pair of Salomon I have bought and won't be the last. Great products and great service, perfect.
Fantastic service from Outdoor Kit (as usual). The boots are excellent; waterproof, stylish and more importantly, comfortable. I have recommended these to everyone I know. Thanks Outdoor Kit!
Got these boots back in March, first trip was up a very snowy Snowdon and they performed fantastically. I have covered many more miles up many more mountains and flat walks with no problems. They are getting their biggest test in a few weeks up Kilimanjaro. I don't foresee any problems. Five stars are not enough for these boots.
Got a pair of these before Xmas and have been really impressed. Initially I was worried because the upper cuff appeared to be creating a pressure point just above my ankle bone, but walked up and down a few flights of stairs and they appeared to adjust themselves to provide a much more comfortable fit... no looking back since then. They've done one weekend trip in North Wales where they were dry and comfortable in almost all conditions (until I stuck my right leg knee deep in a bog and the boot filled with water... note to self, buy gaiters).
The grip was excellent apart from over one icy section where I really need spikes/crampons - most of the time it felt like I was wearing my most comfortable pair of running shoes.
My only concern is the long term durability... a lack of stitching on the upper makes me wonder what will happen after a couple scrambles over rougher terrain leads to wear and tear, but we shall see, but that might be because I'm used to my old Scarpas that were bomb proof.
All together an excellent light weight boot that seems to me like it will do the job in all but the must tricky of conditions.
My Salomon Cosmic 4D GTX Boots are the best investment I have made for a long long time. They are unbelievably comfortable and give me all the support I need. I have made several purchases from Salomon since buying these boots as I now know the quality will stand me in good stead for many years.
