  Salomon
  Posted by: booztalkin on Apr-14-13 9:50 PM (EST)
 

I have had a pair of Solomons for a couple years. They are nearing the end of their life, I'll have to replace them soon. Things I like about them: comfortable enough for long walks, the lace system tucks away nicely, they drain well, the mesh fabric drys quickly and the soles have good traction. Things I don't like: there's an opening between the front upper and the heel counter. There's a strap between the heel counter and the front upper. It tends to come loose. And the open spaces below these straps allow pebbles to get under your foot, and those pebbles just don't come out.

I would not buy any shoe that doesn't have a full enclosure all the way around it, because those pebbles between the sole of your foot and the sole of the shoe are so annoying. Preferably, the body of the shoe will be some kind of mesh, so the pebbles stay out and the water can drain out.

Hope that helps.
