Great shoe; light weight, generous toe room and the extended outter sole is fab for ankle support, took 3 tries to get right size, but backcountry staff was great! Free return for size exchange... I was 1 & 1/2 to 2 sizes smaller than usual. Was worth the 3 tries! They were on sale last time around AND a free runners cap...TY BC :)

I read the reviews that this shoe ran big, so I hoped that it would fit my rather wide foot. No such luck. I had to send them back.
They don't fit!

I am disappointed that these shoes are too big. I have ordered Salomon in the past and 7.5 was right for me. Not so in this shoe. Too big. I needed to add a insert and even then its not working out so well. I did see a similar post about this and should have listened!! Bummed.
Love these but...

size down! I bought these same shoes a few years ago and was replacing them with a new pair. However Salomon has changed up the sizing. Now a size 8 is too large for me so I had to return them. Backcountry.com does not have my color in a 7 1/2 so I ended up purchasing elsewhere.

These were too tight for me. I should have ordered a half size larger. So, I gave them to my daughter, who wears an 8 1/2 size shoe. :( This was a real dissapointment to me, since I have previously bought Saloman hiking shoes and love them.
Love, love, love these shoes!

I bought these hikers before a trip to Havasupai, AZ. They felt like I was walking on a cloud from the moment I put them on! I hiked 45 miles in 4 days and never even thought about getting a blister. Even wore them through the river and they dried out and were fine for another 10 miles the next day. The lacing system is a snap. Awesome shoes.

This is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. It is very sturdy, offering protection for my foot and support for my ankle, while being wonderfully lightweight. Thanks for Backcountry.com's amazing return policy I ordered this shoe in a 7.5 and 8 and Salomon Exit Aero 2 Hiking Shoe in an 8. Many Solomon reviews have said order a size/half-size down, I completely agree. I didn't even try on the Exit Aero 2 because just looking at it in the box I didn't like the way the toe area was shaped. (Which is why I was drawn to trail runners in the first place, but because of the return policy I decided to go for some hiking shoes just in case.)
These shoes didn't need to be broken in, but I wore them everyday for a week before my trip. These shoes were first tested at Yosemite on the Mist Trail (to the top of Vernal Falls) on very steep, wet, steps and steep dirt paths. The shoes provided great traction and breathed well to keep my feet from getting soaked while stopping for numerous photos on the wettest part of the trail.
Two weeks later I was in a completely different environment hiking through Arches National Park. In the 100 degree heat and sand these shoes breathed well to keep my feet from getting too hot and the traction was amazing for crawling up and down smooth rocks. Hiking though sand was incredibly though, especially in the heat and sun, but these light weight shoes helped out a lot. My only complaint is towards the end of my hike on the they're-not-kidding Primitive Loop from Devil's Garden, I was collecting a lot of sand in my shoe. I read that the Gore-Tex version prevents sand and little rocks from entering your shoe, but living in Southern Nevada I cared more about breathability. I ended up stopping twice in a mile to pour sand out of my shoe, but I think that was because I was too tired and just shuffled my feet though the sand at the end.
Long winded review, but I hope It encourages others to purchase this shoe. Thank you Backcountry!

This is a very sturdy shoe. I love slipping them on because they are something my feet can rely on for comfort and stability. The quick lace system is awesome now that I'm used to it. I got them to take with me on my 11 month, 11 country backpacking trip. I'll report back in a year or so with how they hold up! :)

These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. They don't give my feet pain and blisters like many other shoes do. LOVE the quick-lace system and how well these shoes breath. Never thought my feet could ever be so happy.
