Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2014)

£140.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX is a very lightweight boot at just 1356g (pair, size 11), and with the lower weight comes a change in performance when compared to heavier boots. The upper is made from synthetic materials with lots of stitching, so potentially this may not be as durable as a boot with one piece of leather on the ...

Salomon X Ultra GTX (2014)

£115.00

The Salomon X Ultra GTX is an exceptionally light shoe at just 956g (pair, size 11), making it instantly appealing to anyone wishing to save weight or move fast outdoors. The upper is synthetic with an open mesh and a Gore-Tex waterproof lining. The upper is protected by synthetic overlays and a large rubber toe bumper, but it’s still not ...

Salomon Conquest GTX (2013)

£130.00

The Salomon Conquest GTX provides a hugging fit straight from the box, which is very appealing. The sole also provides a more stable platform on every step than other boots, which again gives this model an advantage. There’s a rubber toe bumper to protect the upper, but the toe box isn’t particularly well stiffened so it isn’t the best option ...

Salomon X Ultra GTX (2013)

£110.00

Looks are deceptive, as the Salomon X Ultra GTX is far lighter than it appears at first sight and it actually tips the scales at 912g (pair, size 11), which makes it one of the lightest mountain activity shoes we looked at. It has a synthetic upper with a Gore-Tex lining, which also makes it good value, as other shoes ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2013)

£140.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX is a very lightweight boot, tipping the scales at 1322g (pair, size 11), which is some 200g less than the Asolo Flame for example. But with that weight loss comes a change in character, as this instantly feels softer and less robust than its heavier competitors. The upper is mostly fabric with some leather overlays, ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX (2012)

£140.00

As Salomon’s known for its lightweight footwear, it’s not surprising the Comet 3D GTX is the second lightest boot in our test – only pipped to the post by Zamberlan (by 4g) – and this is something that you notice as soon as you put them on. With a lot of cushioning underfoot they are immediately comfortable. The fit is ...

Salomon Exit 2 Aero

£65.00

An excellent walking shoe for dry weather, the Exit 2 Aero ticks most of the walking shoe boxes: reasonably stiff sole, good tread pattern, great heel hold. It’s let down by a lack of a waterproof lining (although Gore-Tex versions are available) which reduces its usability in the rain. The absence of a membrane coupled with the mesh design does ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX

£135.00

Trail running shoe technology makes these boots incredibly comfortable straight from the box, with a trainer/multi-activity shoe feel to them. The soft upper and soft flexing sole underfoot gives them this added level of initial comfort. With this degree of flex, longevity may be an issue, although they maintained the same level of stiffness throughout the test. While not super-stiff, ...

Salomon Exit 2 Peak 2011

£75.00

The Salomon Exit 2 Peak is a relatively low-priced shoe compared to some options, but you still get reasonable performance. So the upper offers good protection and it should be durable, thanks to the use of minimal mesh and extensive areas of suede leather coupled with not too much stitching. There is an extra synthetic overlay around the toe too. ...

Salomon Comet 3D GTX 2011

£135.00

The Salomon Comet 3D GTX weighs 1308g (pair, size 11); suede and fabric upper; Gore-Tex waterproof lining; instantly comfy due to soft upper; deep lug pattern for grip in mud; rubber toe reinforcement for durability. But soft upper and soft sole flex make it better for valleys, moors and easier hills paths than anything rocky; lack of heel breast means ...

Salomon Tracks GTX

£100.00

A fairly light shoe that’s at its best on easier surfaces and good paths. It’s well-padded and very comfortable from the box, but the lacing doesn’t extend far down the foot and this, combined with a quite flexible midsole, made it difficult to get a really stable fit on steeper ground. A Gore-Tex liner kept water out well, and the ...

Salomon Tiana GTX 2010

£100.00

The Salomon Tiana GTX weighs 616g (pair, size 5); Gore-Tex waterproof lining; mesh and suede upper; reasonable toe protection. But outsole is not very stiff so you can feel rocky ground through the sole; outsole lug pattern is relatively shallow, so others offer better grip.

Salomon Quest 4D GTX

£145.00

A great looking boot with decent rubber bumpers at the toe and heel to keep them looking fresh. The narrow heel and comparatively wide forefoot gives them an incredibly secure feel, and this, coupled with an excellent lacing system, means your feet stay comfortably in place, even on steep descents. Out in the hills, they performed impeccably – the sole ...

Salomon Mega Trek 6 LTR GTX

£130.00

A contemporary looking boot with a high ankle cuff and a tough rubber bumper. The fit is on the broad side, which may deceive when trying on, and it’s also very padded, so feels lovely from the box. The midsole is a little softer than some – good for easier going but not quite as supportive higher up; and whilst ...

Salomon Exit Aero

£55.00

With a mainly mesh upper and no waterproof lining, this is the cheapest and one of the lightest shoes tested. It has limited midsole support, and leaks like a sieve, but it will work superbly in dry, hot climates or on well-surfaced trails; and will also do a great job for the fast and light brigade, who don’t mind getting ...

Salomon Quest 4D GTX

£130.00

A well-padded boot that feels great from the box. It’s quite a chunky boot, with a very high ankle cuff, but it’s not too heavy, and the lacing is excellent, making it really easy to get a stable fit. It struggled a little for grip in softer conditions, but it did well on rock. It has an excellent toe box ...

Salomon Exit Sport 2 GTX 2009

£85.00

The Salomon Exit Sport 2 GTX is a well-proven multi-activity shoe that is a well-established modern classic. The Exit Sport has a stylish upper with suede leather overlaying textile that hides a Gore-Tex XCR waterproof lining to keep your feet dry. The toe is reasonably stiff for better foot protection when walking on rocky terrain. The heel cup is very ...

Salomon Quest 4D GTX 2009

£130.00

Take a good look at the new Salomon Quest 4D GTX 3-season boot and you’ll recognise the outsole, which is a development of Salomon’s trail running outsole. It gives this boot an excellent ride that takes the wearer close to the ground with a good level of cushioning and stiffness to protect from the pounding. There is a good depth ...

Salomon Cosmic 4D GTX 2009

£145.00

My first boots on Trail were a pair of Salomon X-Adventure 7s. Back in 2001 everyone seemed to have them, and I loved mine. So I was excited to see Salomon’s Cosmic 4D GTX: a vibrant red fabric boot that’s clearly a step away from my old leather X-Adventures. But forget the colour: the real excitement is located in the ...

Salomon Mega Trek 6 LTR W

Comfy from the box with a snug heel and plenty of room for toes. Very high ankle cuffs kept feet really stable and reassuringly protected on rough and rocky terrain. Quite heavy, but an excellent lacing system with a locking eyelet kept them feeling secure. The chunky, grippy sole provided excellent shock absorption.VITAL STATSColour: Burro/foundationSizes: 3_-10_ (UK)Upper: Oiled nubuckWaterproof/breathable lining: ...

Salomon Exit Peak

£60.00

Really comfortable from the box. A good lacing system gives great support right across the foot and there is plenty of room for your toes. Lovely to walk in on dry ground, with a very grippy sole and flexible uppers. No waterproof lining means that wet feet are inevitable on damp ground, so best-suited to dry paths or travelling.

Salomon XT Wings

£80.00

This is Salomon’s latest trail-running shoe. It has a mesh upper to allow good breathability. You also get very good torsional rigidity to take the sting out of uneven, rocky ground. Good underfoot cushioning makes hard, rocky paths easier, while the supportive ankle cuff and arch make rough and uneven ground less of a strain on the joints. While the ...

Salomon Exit Sport GTX

£85.00

What we like about this multi-activity shoe compared to some others in the Salomon range is that it has a more performance edge. Underfoot there’s good stiffness in the sole to take the pressure out of rocky paths. Also, you get fairly deep and aggressive lugs to keep a grip in the mud or when descending grass slopes. The toe ...

Supportive ankle cuff and solid toe box with rubber rand; aggressive outsole for grip in mud; good cushioning; good lateral stiffness. However,  longitudinal flex in the sole is quite soft, so not ideal for rocky ground; the lugs may hold mud a little ...
