Size and fit

The X Reveal GTX is a low-cut model available for men and women. It features a generous, cushy fit with plenty of cushioning around the ankle and heel. The mesh upper hugs the foot snugly and the seamless construction promotes a glove-life feel. Additionally, it has a traditional lace-up closure for a secure and personalized fit.

Outsole

Having a multidirectional lug pattern, this shoe delivers good traction on varying terrain. Whether you're walking on loose dirt, mud, or grass, or running on concrete sidewalks, the Contragrip rubber outsole is designed to keep you grounded. The lugs are pretty aggressive and deep which are ideal for rugged terrain and off-trail adventures.

Midsole

Salomon's EnergyCell is a high-rebound midsole made of lightweight EVA. It features high energy return, cushioning, and durability. For added comfort, this hiker comes with an Ortholite insole which is cut to the shape of the inner shoe so it fits the foot nicely. Ortholite footbeds are soft, breathable, and long-wearing. They are meant to upgrade the comfort and performance of the footwear.

Upper

The X Reveal GTX has an upper made of mesh fabric and synthetic materials. Mesh has several nice qualities. First of all, it's very breathable. A common issue with waterproof shoes is that they tend to overheat. Hikers with mesh uppers promote air circulation so your feet are less likely to overheat even if a waterproof membrane surrounds it. It's a very soft material as well and much more comfortable than leather. This shoe uses performance mesh which is durable and resistant to abrasion.

For added protection against the elements, this shoe features a protective toecap and a gusseted tongue that keeps debris out. Lastly, it uses a traditional lacing system with eyelets for easy adjustment of the fit.
