Salomon Ultra Glide: a comfortable Salomon shoe?

Salomon footwear is most commonly associated with a tough, rugged design that works like a tank on demanding terrain. But the release of Ultra Glide mixes in some comfy vibes into this trail monster’s lineup.

It is a max-cushioned trail shoe that adds come plushness over and under the foot to keep you supported on long efforts.

What is it best for?

  • Distance: any up to an ultra
  • Speed: slow-to-moderate
  • Terrain: road-to-trail, light and non-technical

What makes the Ultra Glide special

An unusual design for Salomon, the Ultra Glide manages to give comfort without sacrificing its trail-readiness. Here are some of the highlights that help it do so:

  • Thick layer of Energy Surge cushioning. Same component as used in Salomon’s Phantasm and Pulsar but more generous
  • Slight rocker to help you roll
  • Sensi-Fit helps to create a hug-like and secure experience even for such a high-stack shoe
  • Roomier toebox for a more accommodating fit
  • Generously padded collar and tongue
  • Quicklace allows for easy fit regulation
  • Lace garage helps to hide the excessive lace length
  • Contragrip with 4-mm lugs keeps it grippy but still versatile for harder surafces
