Salomon Women’s Authentic Waterproof Hiking Boot Review

Salomon Women’s Authentic Waterproof Hiking Boot Review
No break-in time required for these boots and no patches either- no blisters, hot spots or rubbing from these! Don’t stay away from ice, wet surfaces, slippery rocks or rough trails with these boots on- they are great lightweight performers, for so many hours, for so many seasons. You wouldn’t say by their looks, we know. 🙂

Is it a boot? Is it a shoe? Is it a hiking boot that takes you up the hill and... down the stairs just as well?

PROS:

  • the boots look nice and are very comfortable; they are versatile and I use them when I hike, walk, or work
  • they have a good grip and give good traction, no matter how icy/wet/slippery/rough the terrain gets
  • they don’t give any blisters, pinching, or rubbing

CONS:

  • the boots are not entirely waterproof
  • the area around the ball joint could use more cushioning
  • the ankle area needs some improvement for more comfort

I have Salomon running shoes and I do hike now more often than before, and I wanted for a while to buy some Salomon hiking boots.

As I thought, these are the perfect choice for me and I’m not disappointed by these boots at all.

They are very comfortable and are so versatile- I use them when I hike, when I walk, when I climb up the stairs or when I put them on in the morning and… forget to take them off until I get back home at night. Because they are great when it comes to comfort for my feet, prone to blisters, I might add…

So I didn’t need to break these boots in, and I don’t have to use any tapes to prevent blisters since they are cushioned enough and protect my feet very well.

The bottom part of the boots is waterproof and I avoid to step into deep puddles while wearing them… they don’t have super powers, you know 🙂

The boots give a good grip and a great traction on ice, wet terrains, slippery rocks or rough trails.

I use these boots on long distances also and they gave me no blisters or sore feet.

They are not too heavy and mold perfectly to my feet. Even though they run true to size, I went up ½ size just to be sure. And I wasn’t wrong- I can wear some thick socks now.

The boots keep me warm in the winter and dry in the summer time, as I use them all year long.

Even though the soles are thick, they are also flexible and give great ankle support.

The boots look nice, not clunky at all and seem to be well made.

I take these no matter the trail conditions- muddy, wet- and are very easy to clean. I just use a brush and a wet rig to do it.

I can wear these boots all day long without getting any pinching, rubbing nor heel blisters.

These boots are well made, from high quality materials. Since I used them on so many walks and hikes so far and I see no tear, no break, no hole, I can tell they are pretty long lasting.

My list of „pros”:

  • the boots are very comfortable
  • the bottom is waterproof
  • they are versatile and I use them when I hike, walk, or work
  • the boots have a good grip and give good traction, no matter how icy/wet/slippery/rough the terrain gets
  • the boots look nice
  • they don’t give any blisters, pinching, rubbing
  • the boots are cushioned, with thick, yet flexible soles

When it comes to the downsides, I would have liked these boots to be entirely waterproof.

In the beginning, I had some discomfort in the ankle area- it’s better now, though.

During long hikes, toward the end, I can feel some tightness across the ball joint- maybe this area is not cushioned enough.

The boots are great, but the laces keep getting untied unless I double knot them.

So, the list of „cons” would be:

  • the boots are not entirely waterproof
  • the area around the ball joint could use more cushioning
  • the ankle area needs some improvement for more comfort
  • the laces could be of higher quality

I am still a Salomon fan, if you ask me, and I would buy them again if the current ones ever decided to let me down 🙂
