Great buyBy: Ian on 11 August 2018I was advised about Solomon footwear a few years ago and wondered if they were as good as mentioned. I was able to find a pair in my size and on sale, so I thought I would give it a shot. The initial fit wasn't fantastic, you know how some footwear fits like an old pair of slippers, unfortunately these didn't. I wondered if this was a good decision. I was proved wrong. It did take a little time for the shoes to fit (we're not talking months here) and within a very short space of time the shoes were really comfortable to wear. Indeed since the original pair I have bought and used four pairs and would buy them again. Yes wear them in, but once you have they are a great shoe to use. I have found them ideal for my work as an Outdoor Ed and Physical Education teacher using them daily for everything from soccer to hill climbs - a great purchase.
