What: Salomon Speedcross GTX
Why I chose it: The Salmon Speedcross GTX shoes are (aside from my ski boots, of course) my favorite adventure footwear. They are lightweight, incredibly comfortable, and best of all for this Northwest dweller: WATERPROOF! The Quicklace system makes putting them on and pulling them off a breeze, and the knobbed bottoms are perfect for scrambling up and down steep hillsides with confidence and ease. I wore these out-of-the-box on a six-mile run with no blisters or hot spots, and haven’t looked back since.
