How to choose your hiking boots | Salomon How-To

Because the wrong pair of hiking shoes can make your life a living hell, it’s well worth it to watch this video that explains why properly selecting the right pair of shoes will make all the difference.

In this video, photographer and mountain lover Dominique Granger explains how to choose a great pair of hiking shoes. Do you need a lightweight pair of shoes for freedom of movement? Or perhaps a high-cut shoe with lugged soles for rough terrain? By following Dominique’s advice you’re sure to make the right decision.

Hiking can be enjoyed in all kinds of weather and across all types of terrain including forest paths, high mountains, slippery surfaces, rocks, rain and snow. All these elements should be considered when choosing your shoes. Because of this incredible variety of conditions, Salomon has developed a huge range of hiking shoes so that you can find a pair that perfectly suits your needs. It’s important to start your adventures, both big and small, on the right foot!

    Pay attention that the CONTAGRIP sole has no grip on wet surfaces. Tested personally. Trekking shoes with no wet grip are simply useless.

    Hello, I am looking for hiking shoes to do the Camino de Santiago, approximately 300 km.
    What shoes do you recommend? One for women and one for men.

    After glue unsticks, water gets in through the bottom which by the way this Gortex bootty inside doesn’t go all the way Around your foot so all the water gets in, glue unsticks after only a 2 to 3 months of light usage.

    I got OUTBOUND PRISM GORE-TEX. Those are great shoes and holds me without slipping even on steeper rock surfaces. Grip is good and that is what I was looking for. I needed some walk-in time, but after that shoes fit well.

    If you supinate forget any Solomon shoes, you will destroy them due to heavy usage on one spot of the boot or shoe, ruining the shoe or boot completely, within 2 months.
