Customer Reviews

Comments: Kinda bummed. I live in Washington, so lots of rain. I always get a pair of waterproof shoes for running trails or just running around town to keep my toesy dry. Unfortunately I don't think Salomon has completely got this Clima Sheild technology down. My feet sweat like crazy in these things. I haven't even run in them yet and my socks get damp. I never had that problem with with any of my Northface Gore-Tex shoes (of which I have several pairs). Any ways they are super mega comfy! Love the styling, the colors, and surprisingly I really like the lacing system, but I can't get past swampy socks... :(

Comments: Beware... these shoes are known to cause blisters on the arch after running more than a couple of miles in them. There are many reports of this. I wish I would have done more research before I purchased these shoes.
