I’ve just bought a pair of the version 3 after wearing out some version 2s – the tread pattern is significantly improved. Hopefully this pair will last longer than the last ones. As you say, very comfortable!
(Sorry, OP, I know you say the Salomon toebox is no good for you but just wanted to share on the sole improvement)
I tried asolo boots but they were very narrow. Now have a pair of salewa MTN trainer mid (which are boots despite the name) very comfy but with a good supportive vibram sole. They are still untested but I trust vibram (I did read a punters review claiming they didn’t have good grip though). They do look like some roller blades from the 80s!
I tend to buy Scarpa Vortex. I just checked mine, which are GTX which I assume means Goretex, however the big hole I put my foot through, would suggest to me limited water tightness. Over the years I have had a few pairs of these and done loads of walking and found the grip good and the shoes comfy and long lasting. https://www.scarpa.co.uk/approach/vortex-xcr/
