Seamless Smart Shell uppers offer a delightfully lightweight and flexible fit, breathable water-resistance and chafe-free comfort.

Laminated nylon webbing eyelets help secure fit at insteps and minimize water seepage as the miles tick by. Wicking nylon linings absorb and disperse excess moisture for great comfort. AutoFIT memory foam wraps ankles and feet for a secure, comfortable fit; stitchless 3D Fit at tongues increases comfort. Removable Ortholite® footbeds enhance comfort by adding shock absorption; antimicrobial treatment deters odors. Lightweight die-cut EVA midsoles offer ample cushioning on hard-packed terrain; polyurethane SCS Trek heel pads offer long-lasting impact absorption. Low-profile 3D Advanced Chassis™ midsole supports help control twisting on uneven ground and protect feet from sharp stones. High-traction Mountain Contagrip™ rubber outsoles deliver reliable traction and braking on all types of terrain.
I got these hiking boots last year and it was not cheap. It cost me around US$ 300.00 here in Brazil.
Well it is a great boot, looks good on your feet, great for hiking, very good grip, nice touch for photos and stuf...
But there is one single problem: On the back, the boot has a plastic brand for salomon attached on the boot. in time, and that depends on how much you're gonna use the boot, the plastic brand itself will damage the outside tissue of the boots.
You can't avoid it, can't run from it. I spent a great deal of money on the boots thinking i would have at least 3 or 4 good years with it and i was wrong. They're almost useless and it has been only 10 months since i got it. Sad but true...
