‘Great choice for walkers who want more ankle protection than you’d get for a shoe, but don’t feel the need for one of Salomon’s classic higher-ankled boots’
Outdoors Magic: Light, magic fit, just enough support, decent grip on dry to medium terrain, Gore-Tex liner, and did we mention light?
Outdoors Tragic: Less sophisticated than Salomon’s more expensive models, less durable than heavier boots.
Outdoors Grabbit? Salomon’s built a great reputation for lightweight outdoor footwear that’s still decently supportive and the Evasion Mid is right on message. It’s a great choice if you want a little more protection than a shoe, but not a full boot. The fit works well for us with great ankle hold and a medium forefoot and the Contragrip sole is grippy enough for most conditions bar full-on slop. It won’t suit more traditionally-minded, stiff-sole aficionados, but if you want light and nimble and it fits your feet, it’s a great choice.
