Salomon Women’s Quest 4D 2 GTX Hiking Boot Review

Salomon Women’s Quest 4D 2 GTX Hiking Boot Review
Especially when heavily backpacked on the trail... These waterproof, lightweight, sturdy hiking boots give room to the toes (and bunions also) and a great stability along with flexibility. Arch and ankles support are well taken care of. The traction is great on roots, creeks, uneven ground...you name it! And you’ll still have money in your wallet after you get them!

I have been complaining to my husband for so many years about how I can never find the right hiking boots, that he thought it was hopeless for me to ever find them.

But, we read about and finally decided to buy myself these Salomon boots and now he doesn’t hear any more complaints- not about hiking boots, anyway 🙂

The boots look great and need very little time to break in. As a matter of fact, I wore them around the house and took them the next day for a day hike and I had no blisters whatsoever. I am prone to blisters, so these boots are a bless in disguise since not even once did they give me any blisters or hot spots.

The boots are very comfortable and also waterproof- I stepped into so many puddles and streams without getting wet…

I have wide feet and the boots feature a wide toe box and my bunions (yep, have those also, lucky me…) don’t bother me anymore.

The boots are lightweight and feel sturdy at the same time. It’s great, as these boots manage to be solid, providing great stability and be flexible just as well.

The arch support is also very good (even if it felt a bit weird in the beginning) and I have only good things to say about the ankle support.

The boots are well built and seem to be long lasting.

I am able to also fit my orthotics, so you can see that width is not an issue for these boots.

I take these boots on my daily hikes, but I think they work even better while heavily backpacked. The boots give great traction on shallow creeks, rocks, roots, uneven ground and the ankle support makes it easier to hike for hours.

The price you pay for the quality is amazing, also.

My “pros”:

  • the boots are waterproof
  • they are very comfortable
  • they give good ankle and arch support
  • they need very little time to break in
  • the toe box is nice and large
  • the boots are sturdy and flexible at the same time
  • they are well made, long lasting
  • the boots have good grip and give good traction on all kinds of terrain
  • they work great for the heavily backpacked hikes

I can see that I’m satisfied with the width of the boots, but I think that a regular feet person doesn’t feel the same as me. So, maybe the boots are a bit too large.

The heel slips a little but this can be easily worked out with some heel lock lacing techniques.

As was to be expected, I found the boots a bit stiff in the beginning- this is why the break in period- but I don’t have this problem anymore.

The laces come untied pretty easily but this can also be solved with other types of lacing or simply double knotting the existing ones.

My „cons”:

  • the boots are a bit stiff in the beginning
  • the laces come untied pretty easily
  • the heel slips a little

But, all in all, these are minor issues. I would buy these boots again as they give me the best protection and comfort for all my feet problems- my husband knows the best! 🙂
