Salomon Women's Quest 4D Gore-Tex
Superb all round walking/trekking boots
My last Salomon boots lasted 10 years and I have every confidence that these will do the same! I use my boots for everything from Geography field days in the North York Moors to trekking expeditions in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. These boots have been supremely comfortable from the word "go" and so far, have coped perfectly with everything that's been thrown at them. The Goretex ensures that my feet don't overheat, but remain dry (even after wading through ankle deep water!), and the robust sole gives good grip, but is thick enough not to feel the rough ground through them. The ankle support is solid too. In addition, despite their appearance, they're really quite light, so I don't feel as though I have great weights strapped to my feet, and it helps luggage allowance too. A little wearing in would obviously be recommended, for even greater comfort, if you have the time.

These are great boots
These boots were great, I came away from a 30mile walk without a single blister, a big thank you to the shop assistant in Bristol who spent ages helping me to choose the best pair.

Very comfortable and sturdy boots - happy feet!
I bought these to replace a much loved pair of leather boots and recently took them on their maiden voyage to Switzerland.
They hold my heel and ankle very well, have plenty of room in the toes and are extremely stable and sturdy underfoot. I was walking all day on Alpine tracks and my feet were really comfortable on both uphills and dowhills.
I usually suffer a lot from painful feet, but these boots allowed me to really enjoy my walking.
Many thanks to the Covent Garden store for ensuring I got the right boots for my needs - they are great and I look forward to many miles of comfort!

Great product, very comfy and light
I was impressed at the quality of these shoes. Although they look bulky, they are very light. They are very comfortable - I thought I had made a huge mistake in not wearing them in before a 3 day hiking trip in Snowdonia but they were absolutely fine. I was surprised at how dry my feet remained after tripping into a river... And they provide great support for feet and ankles (walking down steep hills felt like a piece of cake!). Great purchase.

Pretty much spot on boots really. These are my first ever pair of walking boots.
After a year of my boyfriend telling me I needed a pair of walking boots I finally gave in and got some.
I got these in the sale at a steal of a price at just under Â£95. The cheapest I'd seen anywhere. They're not like other boots that I'd seen. Most of them are pretty unsightly so I wanted a nicer "prettier" pair.
I was pretty amazed when I went through a deepish stream that they came out completely dry and I was paddling for most of our walk that day.
I'd very happily recommend these to any girl/woman looking at getting walking boots. Great material and so comfy too! And they don't feel like massive space boots when you're walking either which makes it all more enjoyable.
