Salomon Cross Hike Mid GTX: Who is it for?

You might be thinking that the answer to this question is pretty obvious. Most hiking boots, after all, are for those who wish to conquer trails with more ankle support. That said, this Salomon offering is more than just supportive. Read the following to find out who else it is for:

  • Its quick lace system is a godsend to those who like getting a dialed-in fit with one easy pull.
  • With its partially randed forefoot and rubberized toe bumper, the Cross Hike Mid GTX caters to those who often bump into jagged rocks and gnarly roots.
  • This footgear is rockered front and back, making it ideal for folks who traverse flat terrain often.

Interesting things about the Cross Hike Mid GTX

Lace garage. The Cross Hike Mid GTX has a pouch built into the boot’s tongue. You can stow the remainder of the lace within it for a snappy ride.

A stretchy collar. The rear part of the boot’s collar is flexible enough to let the lower leg bend back a little during downhill maneuvers, resulting in more comfortable descents.

Lug formation. Mud and debris will not stick to the shoe’s outsole thanks to its moderately spaced apart, spiky lugs.
