Size and fit

The Salomon X Ultra Mid Winter CS WP, which is available for men and women, features a leather upper that conforms to the shape of your foot after wearing it for some time. The lace-up closure system allows for a more secure fit.

Excellent surface traction

Contragrip is a super durable Salomon technology that provides quality performance on different surfaces, from slippery, snow-covered lands to muddy and grassy terrain, rocky mountains, and more. It is made from rubber compounds with varying densities. For instance, areas that are susceptible to wear and tear have denser compounds while those that need to be more flexible (like the central column) have softer compounds.

Provides protection from sharp rocks or stones

The lugs are deep enough to create a better grip and traction. They are also spaced appropriately to protect the foot from discomfort caused by stepping on sharp rocks or stones.

Between the midsole and outsole is a lightweight Advanced Chassis that helps you control your movements and protect your foot from push-through.
