You might assume that any hiking boots will do for hiking. However, that is not necessarily true. When it comes to footwear, you need the right boot for your feet, the terrain that you plan to explore, as well as the amount of weight that you plan to carry. Here are the benefits of Salomon boots for hiking and mountaineering.


The History of Salomon

The Salomon brand began in 1947 with Francois Salomon and his son George in the French Alps. With a passion for skiing and innovative design, the pair were the original inventors of many of the essentials for modern ski equipment. Today, Salomon is known for its commitment to innovation which has resulted in a wide array of new footwear designs.

  3. Space for orthopedic insoles.
  4. Thick soles to protect your feet from uneven terrain.

Quality construction is extremely important when it comes to hiking and mountaineering boots because low-quality materials can lead to leaks, rips and premature wear. For this reason, you should invest in hiking footwear from a reliable brand like Salomon.

Types of Salomon Hiking Boots

Hiking boots are ideal if you like to hike on slippery trails. They can also stand up to the demanding conditions of off-trail terrain. Lightweight hiking boots are ideal for short and medium length hikes (of roughly 2 to 16 km) on moderate to easy terrain. For more intense hikes (over 16 km or multi day bushwalks) and rougher terrain, you should opt for midweight hiking boots because they can provide the support that you need to carry a heavy pack.

The hiking boot height is also important when it comes to selecting boots for hiking. Salomon offers hiking boots in mid-cut and high-cut styles. Mid hiking boots are designed for rough terrain and can provide protection against debris, including small rocks and terrain. However, for steep or extremely aggressive terrain you would be better off with a high-cut hiking boot.

Salomon hiking boots offer a legendary fit with cushioning and protection that will deliver maximum comfort on all terrain types. If you have concerns about twisting your ankles, you absolutely need a stable, supportive boot like Salomon hiking boots.
