Salomon Quest 4D GTX Boot review by Patrick
First let me start by saying I am merely a day hiker, nothing extreme or expedition.
That being said I have worn merrel for alot of years. So this time around I needed something a little higher for support and wow.
These things do fit like a slipper they are extremely comfortable to wear. The laces are tough since I usually pull pretty hard on them and the hook lace system I have always preferred. Some people say these fit like a ski boat and I could see that perhaps as Salomon makes Ski Boots. I just got back from a weekend from leyus caves to mt. adams and goldendale area. I forgot I was even wearing these things. What I mean by that is, “there wasn’t anything I noticed like heel strikes, sore foot, blisters or anything that would even have me look down as if something felt wrong. My new favorite hiking shoe/boot.
Salomon Quest 4d GTX review by PPMitch:
I am in Afghanistan and I needed some light boots that would breathe and give ankle support for the mountains. I carry a decent amount of weight and the slopes here are steep and jagged. These boots have been amazing. I put on my Belleville boots a few days ago and was just disgusted in how terrible they felt on my feet. The Salomon Quest 4D GTX Boot are the best boots I have ever worn. A++
Questions from our readers and athletes in our gym.
Question: Which boot do you prefer with the Merrell Sawtooth vs Salomon Discovery GTX boot? We recommend you try on each pair of boots first and decide if it fits your foot. Everyone has a different foot so that is the first thing to check.
Question: Which would you pick with the solomon vs merrell boots? All depends on the task at hand and which one fits your feet better. The 4D is used by Army Rangers in the high mountains where there is snow and ice.
