Salomon’s Quest Winter GTX is equipped with a non-marking Contagrip outsole to deliver traction. It’s made of a durable rubber compound that’s engineered to withstand cold temperatures.
Excellent grip on wet and icy surfaces
The outsole’s surface is filled with an aggressive lug pattern which renders grip on wet and icy surfaces.
Excellent arch support
This high-cut winter hiker uses an injected EVA midsole for cushioning and stability. It’s paired with a removable Ortholite footbed which provides arch support and underfoot comfort.
Stable and protective cushioning
These two components are embedded within the brand’s patented Advanced Chassis which optimizes motion control, improves stability, and offers push-through protection.
The Salomon Quest Winter GTX features an upper made of leather and abrasion-resistant textile fabric. It’s lined with a Gore-Tex Insulated Comfort membrane to seal water out while maintaining heat inside the gear. The upper uses a full bootie construction for complete protection against the elements.
Protective toe cap
The upper’s rubber toe cap provides added protection against stubbing. Its protective heel counter grants rearfoot stability to the user. The gusseted tongue prevents debris from entering the footwear.
The boot’s inner cuff is lined with fleece for improved insulation. A pull loop is also found on the cuff to facilitate an easy on and off. Its closure system uses a lace locker found between the forefoot ankle eyelets to secure the laces and allow a precise lockdown.
