Salomon Quest 4D Forces 2 EN Ranger Green

Price 174.99 USD excluding VAT

The crossbreed of a sneaker and a mountain boot is just that - works well in rough terrain, but fits like a sneaker. This means it's possible to give a good sprint if necessary. Unlike Salomon's GTX models, this model does not have any waterproof lining. This makes it lighter and more breathable.

The crossbreed of a sneaker and a mountain boot is just that - works well in rough terrain, but fits like a sneaker. This means it's possible to give a good sprint if necessary. Unlike Salomon's GTX models, this model does not have any waterproof lining. This makes it lighter and more breathable.

Known for sports & offroad shoes, Salomon has nowadays ventured to military territory too. As one could imagine, the footwear they make is a mix of military requirements and sport shoe features. This certainly isn't a bad thing - here's a pair of all terrain boots with a stiff sole but comfortable fit.

Features

Because we live in the 2000's, the features & materials have all sorts of flashy names ending with ® and ™. However here's a down-to-earth rundown of the boot. First the new features of the Forces 2:

  • Lamella features on tread lugs for even better grip
  • Models with EN suffix have nail-protected soles (EN ISO 20344:2011)
  • Instep reinforcement for rope descents
  • More sizes available

The good ol' features are still there:

  • Non-marking, stiff sole with a very intricate cushion midsole and rough tread pattern.
  • Upper made of nubuck leather and Cordura.
  • Inner lined with breathable fabric.
  • Cushioned, porous insole.
  • Traditional lacing with lace locks in the middle. The upper eyelets are made of metal.
  • Weight for one shoe about 600-700 grams, depending on the size.

Below is the official measuring guide for Salomon footwear.

Tools:

  • Use a shoe box or a wall with a 90° angle.
  • Find a sheet of paper or a sheet of cardboard, a ruler and a pen.
  • What should you do next?

    • Make sure that you are wearing the same socks that you would normally wear with this type of boot.
    • Wearing these socks, stand on the sheet of paper and place the outside of your foot against the wall or place your foot in the shoe box with your heel wedged firmly against the back.
    • Then use your pen and ruler to draw a line just in front of your big toe.
    • Measure the distance between the wall or the side of the shoe box and the line that you have just drawn.
    • Find this measurement in millimetres in the drop-down box. If you fall between sizes, pick the larger one.

Made by Salomon

Made in China, but with some pretty tough specs.
