Salomon Men's Cosmic 4D 2 GTX
Hold you upright in vertiginous times
Dream boot for novice climbing of snow covered Karwendel alpine region - particularly the coming down. Felt steady as a rock, great ankle support, warm, dry and worn-in from day one.. and day five - still felt good. Always glad to be putting them back on. Much admired by more fashion conscious too!

Solid lightweight boot
Bought these to use when skiing because I was trekking later in the tropics. They were good in the snow, light weight and comfortable. Should be ideal in tropics

Walking boots as light and as comfy as slippers!
Having used North Face Hedgehogs for the last 8 years I thought it was time to get a proper boot. Having tried on a couple of different pairs these were the lightest and most comfiest boots that I tried on. These are lighter and more flexible than salomon men's quest 4d gtx that I orinally went to purchase. I for one love the styling as I like to stand out.
A great boot made even better by the xmas discounts.
The staff as Snow and Rock Chertsey were excellent as always.

Excellent boots in all weather
Wanted a pair of these for ages but couldn't justify buying them until my old ones had worn out. Had them for a few weeks now and now they're properly worn in they're brilliant - comfortable, hard wearing and loads of grip in snow, ice and mud.

Great looking boot
I have read reviews about these that say that they split on a pinch point, i wasnt put off as salomon have a 2 year guarantee on everything anyway. A friend of mine has had his pair for 3 years and hasnt had any problems. very comfortable boots.

Very light, comfortable and flimsy
These boots are among the lightest and most comfortable I have ever used. They perform really well, and the break-in period is negligible when compared with other boots. Apart from that, they also look very good.
If my review was to stop here, we could probably say these boots are nearly perfect.
The problem is that they seem to have a design flaw: the fabric on the upper part is a bit stiff, and over time, it somehow "cracks" or "breaks" in the crease that is generated in the region where the boot flexes while walking.
For this reason I had to return a pair of boots that apart from this problem were nearly brand new, and get a refund for it.
After I encountered this issue, I started observing and noticed quite a lot of people with the same problem on these boots.
It is really a shame, because other that, these boots are amazing! Lightweight, comfortable and with great ankle support. But, ultimately, flimsy on the upper part.
It was really frustrating having to return them, and even more not being confident that a new pair of the same boots won't have the same problem.

I wore these on the 5-day Salkantay trek in Peru and they were perfect. They were amazingly comfortable and extremely sturdy, standing up to the rigours of the terrain with ease. Ankle support was exceptional also and I know they prevented me rolling my ankles a couple of times on the downhill sections. I'm really happy I went for these boots.
