Here`s the perfect hiking boot for anyone who enjoys the feel of a trail runner but needs the support, stiffness and protection of a boot. The feel of this shoe is very similar to the XA Pro or the XT Wings from Salomon but offers the stiffness and protection of a large hiking boot. The boot didn`t seem to need any breaking in, and was light enough that I didn`t find my feet or shins fatiguing even after hours of hiking. All though the Quest 4D GTX is deceivingly light it still has all the features you`d expect in a heavy duty hiking boot: Gore-Tex waterproofing to keep your feet dry…a thermoplastic urethane midsole to protect you from the gound and provide flex and stability to the boot… and the Contragrip rubber outsole to keep your feeet nicely secured to the trail. Overall, the Salomon Quest 4D GTX is the best boot I`ve had the pleasure of wearing in many years.
