Get out and go.
Designed to handle any terrain in any condition, the Salomon Women's X Ultra 3 GTX Hiking Shoe helps you get out and stay out. Gore-Tex's Performance Comfort membrane guarantees waterproof, breathable protection for year-round climates, and the SensiFit upper cradles your foot for a stable, precise, and snug fit. An OrthoLite sockliner and two layers of EVA give plenty of cush for days spent maneuvering over rock-strewn trails. Underfoot, the X Ultra 3 GTX features Salomon's Advanced Chassis midsole for the stability, foot control, and protection necessary to handle harrowing descents. Then, a protective rubber toe cap protects your foot from rocks, while the mud guard keeps the boot clean after wet-weather excursions. Rounding things out, a non-marking ContaGrip rubber helps the sole stick to just about any surface that you'll find outside.

- Q & A
Love this shoe!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
These are my first Solomon's and I love them. Have already put a significant amount of miles on them. I took them on our two week trip backpacking and hiking through British Columbia, and then on lots of day hikes here in Utah. I'm normally a 7.5 but always go up a half size in hiking shoes and I am very happy with the fit. I have a wider foot (nothing crazy) but found that these were comfortable. LOVE the quicklace feature once I got used to it. I've also splashed through streams and they stayed totally dry. May look into buying the high top versions for longer backpacking trips.

I have worn Salomons for over 13 years on a daily basis. Since I live in Maine, I need a waterproof hiking/walking shoe. The first pair I ordered had an unworkable quicklace. I returned them and got another pair. They are so narrow, especially in the toe box. I like Salomons because they generally have room for my toes to move when I'm wearing them. Not these. So I'm going to have to go back to the XA Pro model--which still has the proper toe box.

After being unable to find the X-Ultra 2 GTX (which I have since found) I broke down & ordered the 3 version thinking it was the same shoe. It is not. I have been wearing the 2 for several years without issue. Perfect fit comfortable all-terrain hiking/running shoe. LOVE IT! The 3 came in the same size I've been wearing in the 2 & I could barely get my foot in it. Markedly narrower than the 2. I noticed that the 2 was made in Vietnam. The 3 in India. The difficulty I am having finding the 2 in my size leads me to think Salomon is discontinuing it. Bad move. Unless Salomon can get the new manufacturer in India to construct the 3 to the same parameters as the 2 I guess I'll be looking for another shoe that hopefully works as well.
