It’s all good! Salomon is more known for their hiking shoes/boots but I think this particular shoe would be great for everyday casual use as well (especially with the Gore-Tex).

Anyone else golf in trail runners vs golf shoes?

Been golfing 2 year now, and the ones I've been using are starting to wear out. Debating getting "real" golf shoes (single purpose) vs getting another pair of trail runners to double duty.

Solid price! They don’t look as stale and boring as typical hiking shoes but I wonder if they’re solid for some serious trails. Anyone ever use these?

i used Salomon for over 20 years for hiking, and would be the preference unless a need for something very specialized.
I would take this model for a lite trail in woods, will not take for something serious and that would include stone... - get a mid ankle boot like this one: mid ankle hike

Do you think the ones you linked would be suitable for hiking during the summer in the Himalayas? No ice or snow, mind you. Just a simple trek like Annapurna or Everest Base Camp.

I've never used these shoes but I've had a couple others pairs of Salomon shoes that I loved. Salomon in general is a good quality brand that I am happy to buy outdoor gear from (particularly shoes). These shoes look fairly light duty, so I'd use them for three season hiking on well maintained trails. The fabric won't stand up well to abrasion so I wouldn't use them on rock.

I have these shoes and have hiked both Annapurna and EBC. I wear these shoes for light hikes but mostly for day to day wear. I would not suggest hiking either of those trails in the summer. It is their monsoon season and the conditions are horrendous, muddy and treacherous. Mostly of the tea houses would also be closed during the summer months. It is bet to hike in the fall and spring seasons. You probably could get by hiking in these shoes but I would suggest something with more ankle support. There are some decent hills that can get pretty mucky and if you're carrying a heavy pack, you will benefit from more support.

I've had a few Solomon (including a similar OutPath model) and am currently using the Ultra GTX III for hiking.

This model here looks pretty light-duty (e.g. toe cap and heel cup don't look reinforced). Probably great for forest walks/jogs, but I'd be concerned about long term durability for any major backpacking or scrambling. The sole has deep lugs which wear down super quickly if used on paved surfaces. I also find Solomon fit relatively narrow, and usually blow out at the side of the ball of my foot.

I'm pretty sure these were the ones I tried on a couple months ago. Weird fit for my foot, and I've had various Salomons over the years. The heel was too wide and they felt very cardboardish

For a trek to Everest Base Camp, you should be wearing hiking boots.

I picked up the Outbound GTX-12-BBG08 on clearance from MEC for $53 a while back since my UltraBoosts weren't exactly hiking ready. I swear the shoelaces are braindamaged somehow because they will not stay tied unless I do special knots with them, and the tread can be weird on smooth wet pavement, but they are otherwise one of the best built shoes I've owned. Just a +1 for the brand and something to reference for sale price / model.

Can someone please recommend a brand of hiking boots for wide feet. I'd love to order these but everything I hear about Salomon is that they're narrow

Lowa renegade or if you want something more heavy duty Asolo tps 520. Both comes on wide size and are fantastic hiking boots.

Thanks for the post! I do a lot of trail running, so picked up a pair of the Nike Trailhorse shoes. Already have a pair, and figure I’ll need another by the spring/summer. Might as well grab one at 25% off.

Scarpa is pretty wide. And Salomon shoes are hit or miss for width. Youre best to try them on.

Just to be clear though... there will be ice and snow on both Annapurna and EBC. The elevation is upwards of 5500m and it is not a simple trek. It is not technical but there are some challenging sections and the elevation and thin air will make this a challenging trek for most.
