    • Great shoes
      Reviewer: W Ragas

      12/13/2018

      I have had the cross trainer/running variations of the Salomon shoe line and they are great. I decided to get a pair of these for hunting and they are great. The only negative I can say is they seem to run a little bigger than expected, but it works out so there is room for cold weather layering.

      Reviewer: Marc A

      12/7/2018

      Best shoe I have ever owned by far. Two year warranty. 2018 version has strength upgrades to make a great shoe even better quality. Kevlar quicklace is the future. It is amazing. Just weird getting used to using the new lacing feature for about ten minutes. Better than a perfect shoe.

    • Good, but not the most comfortable.
      Reviewer: AD

      11/2/2018

      I was introduced to these boots from one of my other teammates. I was pretty impressed by the reviews however, once I got my very own pair, I was a bit disappointed by the fit. I have been wearing them as often as possible to break them in, and hope they’ll come around. Another thing about these boots is that the tongue keep popping out, despite trying different ways to lace them up. If you need to bend or get on your knees, this issue becomes a big of a nuisance as the pants get caught behind them and feel/look terrible. I may have to modify them myself to prevent this from happening. Lastly, if you lace up too tight, your feet will feel it. It is a bit cumbersome to have a proper fit. Again, a bit disappointed! I’d probably go to back to Underarmour again.

      While some boots do require more break-in time than others, if you feel this isn't the case please give us a call. We'd be more than happy to offer recommendations for other boots to better suit your comfort needs.

      I loved the boots and the way they feel, however I only have wore them for about 8 months and the sole has already busted on the sides. I am very disappointed as I thought Salomon had a much better quality product than this.

    • Response from TacticalGear.com

      We're sorry to hear that you're having issues with the soles! This may be due to some sort of defect. We encourage you to reach out to our Customer Relations team, they'll be able to look into this and make this right! Thank you for the feedback.

      I've been around a loooong time and had every boot worth mentioning these however are far FAR superior! First day with these on the job got into 3 foot chases through houses into yards over fences and down the street. (With 40lbs of gear on) Not even a stumble! After a 12 hour shift my feet weren't tired or hurting at all...... ( my body was) You get what you pay for and for me that means going home at night. Highly recommended.

      This is my first Salomon boots. I've worn Asolo boots and these ones are very similar in fit. The Gortex is an excellent addition. The materials surrounding the boots seem durable especially the tongue portion going forward. I've received compliments that they cool and unique in color. Of course, I got the Ranger Green ones which aren't common. Overall a great set now that they're broken in. This site shipped quickly and the overall experience was excellent. Thank you.

      I previously purchased the Salomon Quest 4D GTX and they were by far the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. I wanted to get back in a mid too so I bought these with the same expectations. They are sturdy and good quality but I don’t feel the same comfort as I did with the other boots.

      Got these in two colors for my husbands birthday and he loves them! He actually ordered them in black also. He said they are a little stiff at first but give you the support of a boot but fit like athletic shoes.

      Extremely well constructed, however, the arch support was extremely painful on my feet. I wore them two days and a bruise developed on the arch of my feet!!

      Have yet to be disappointed by any Salomon product! Solid quality, fits just right and doesn't fail where most would. A really outstanding company for above average prices when standard quality/needs just won't do. This is my 5th pair of Salomon and I rotate them heavily between colors and styles, always seem to get positive comments about them as well!

      Reviewer: Robert

      Selected this tactical boot based on product description, appearance, style, and color, in addition to a nice pricing discount and free shipping. The fit was the only unknown. The boots appear to be very well made and in everyway met my basic expectations. The only issue I have is comfort. I was expecting a higher degree of comfort than I am initially experiencing. The arch, esp on the right boot is uncomfortable. For me it is too high. I am hoping that after I have worn them a few times, my feet and boots will adjust to each other and the degree of discomfort will dissipate.

      My husband's feet will only tolerate certain shoes-this is one of them! He says that there are some modifications that were made compared to previous shoes of the same make/model. All in all, they are sturdier than previous ones.

      These boots fit true to size right out of the box. After a few hours of wear they seem to have loosened up and are very comfortable. I would definitely recommend.

      The midsole is a little narrow but the toe area has plenty of room. I wear 10.5 they were true to size for me. Im use to wearing UA boots which are comfortable out if the box, these are not quite so. Need breakin time. I do believe they will hold up much better than the UA boots. That was the reason for the purchase. Several in our department have switched to Solomon.
