I recently ordered a pair of these, and they are the only shoes I've worn since they arrived. I heard that they run a little larger than average, so I ordered a half size smaller than what I normally wear, and the fit is perfect. The purple and black is very pretty, and the overall design and shape of these shoes looks fantastic. They really are waterproof. I soaked the toes under running water (while wearing them), and not a single drop of water seeped through.They are very comfortable and sturdy too, but not too heavy. I plan to use them for hiking and trail running on rainy/wet days, and I am very much looking forward to it.
These shoes cemented me as a Salomon customer forever. I hike super rocky trails and i also have stupid, weak ankles. They are high enough to provide enough support and wide enough to accommodate the kind of swelling you get from having said stupid ankles after 10-15 miles. The tread is unmatched in wet weather... these are the best trail shoes I've ever had.
