Purchased these for a last minute 2 day 20ish mile hiking trip on the AT. These things went from the box right to the trail, Never had an issue with blister or discomfort. Super stable up through the ankle. Plenty of cushion for covering heavy or rocky terrain. Hands down the best boot I've owned.
I am surprised nobody has reviewed this great boot. I purchased this boot as an all around boot for work, hiking, everyday wear in Michigan during fall and winter. Solomon boots fit my foot great. I have a narrow foot and have to buy 1/2 size up in all brands. I am on my feet for 10-12 hours per day on a hard warehouse concrete floor. I switched to hiking boots after having aching feet year after year suffering from achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. I have had no foot pain since I started wearing Salomon. The 3d is long lasting, light weight, nimble, fully waterproof, stable, has a dense cushion which is still good after one winter. I destroy most boots after one season. Great right out of the box!! This boot has performed well at work and on the trail.
