Who should buy the Salomon X Ultra Trek GTX
Providing excellent aggressive grip and complete waterproof protection, the men's Salomon X Ultra Trek GTX boots is a perfect choice for those looking for:
- a boot designed for fast or light hiking and backpacking
- footgear with superb support, foot control, and protection
- durable leather waterproof boots that also will perform well in colder conditions
Super aggressive outsole
The proprietary outsole of Salomon, Contragrip, is armed in the X Ultra Trek GTX. Its multi-directional and aggressive lugs can grip securely on the ground and the boot can adapt to different terrains. Likewise, the grippy outsole delivers durability.
Injected EVA midsole cushioning
X Ultra Trek GTX from Salomon uses an injected EVA foam, known for its toughness, shock absorption, and eco-friendliness. The lightweight Ortholite footbed featured in this backpacking boot gives it durable cushioning and breathability. It also allows moisture management.
The molded shank, on the other hand, gives support to users and prevents accidental twisting of the ankles.
Ultra stability in the Salomon X Ultra Trek GTX
Salomon's Advanced Chassis, positioned between the midsole and the outsole, is a combination of features that optimize energy return, motion control, and push-through protection. It renders a responsive and stable ride to users.
Wear- and water-resistant upper
The upper is made from a combination of waterproof nubuck and full-grain leather. Nubuck leather is known to be wear-resistant while full-grain leather can resist moisture and its durability is proven and tested over time.
Salomon's superb protection
Through its protective heel cap, the Salomon Ultra Trek GTX is able to provide rearfoot stability. Meanwhile, the rubber toe cap protects the foot against accidental bumps and thumps while traversing terrains. The mud guard, which wraps the base of the shoe, safeguards the users against mud and abrasion.
This pair has a gusseted tongue which helps keep small stones and other debris out. Its tongue and collar are also padded for comfort. The pull strap on the heel allows a straightforward fit adjustment.
Gore-Tex Performance waterproof membrane
The Gore-Tex Performance Comfort featured in this backpacking boot maintains breathability and waterproofness. This technology ensures that water stays on the outside while allowing moisture inside to escape, keeping the feet dry all day. It also provides a reasonable amount of insulation for colder conditions.
