Salomon X Ultra 4 Mid GTX Hiking Shoe
Salomon's X Ultra 5 Mid GTX Hiking Show is an agile hiking shoe with extra protection and stability made to keep you stable and comfortable when navigating technical terrain. This shoe is moderately cushioned with an average last, giving it exceptional ground feel. Salomon drew on their trail running expertise to create a hiking shoe with the light weight and agility of a trail runner but with the support and protection of a more substantial hiking boot. Their ADV-C Chasis is designed for stability without sacrificing mobility and the mid-height cuff on this version adds extra ankle support.
The Contagrip® MA outsole inspires confidence on rock and slick surfaces, in any weather, and the chevron patterned lugs bite into dirt and mud. A GORE TEX upper provides breathable waterproofing, perfect for humid and wetter environments where your shoes don't dry out once wet and water crossings are expected. The shoe's protective mud guard and added water repellent coating all point to the fact that this shoe is designed for any weather and conditions you might throw at it.
If you like the lightweight and agile feel of trail running shoes but need a little more support for extended hikes and backpacking trips, then Salomon's X Ultra 4 Mid GTX is the hybrid hiking shoe you've been looking for.
