Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These really are great. I had a very special need, probably not what the designers of these had in mind. I do a lot of fast walking with my very energetic Jack Russell Terrier on steep trails of either loose gravel or slippery mud. At a mere 14lbs, she is a bundle of energy especially with a squirrel in her cross-hairs. And while I'm trying to balance on a steep down slope and she's tugging away, I need something that really grips. And these really grip. They are extremely comfortable. I did 8 miles and 2k ft of elevation last weekend and they just feel great up and down. Lacing system yields a really snug fit. Salomon does have a reputation for being narrow, but these swallow my orthotics and are just super comfy. I thought about getting the climashield version, but went with these instead. They are a tad warm, but the others would have been much too warm. My only complaint - next time I won't get the baby blue color.
