Provides sufficient grip on winter conditions

Salomon equipped the Ellipse Winter GTX with a non-marking Winter Contagrip outsole. This proprietary technology uses different compounds, geometric lug patterns, and the appropriate density to provide sufficient grip on winter conditions. It extends to the front to act as a bumper that shields the toes.
