Why We Like The Salomon Ultra Glide 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe

When a trail run means a daylong affair, we kit up with Salomon's Ultra Glide 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe. As we tick off the miles, the max stack of pillowy foam softens our strikes, taking more of the load off our joints, while the platform's rocker profile and low drop sail us into smooth and quick transitions. As we get lost in our flow, we splash straight through summit showers and valley water crossings with the GORE-TEX membrane keeping our feet comfortably dry.

Saloman are my go to shoes.

These are the third pair and second model of Salomon shoes I have bought. They are wonderful, they fit well and cause no discomfort. I highly recommend them.

New Favorite

I purchased these for my college aged runner grandson. These were the second pair I purchased for him! He says these are his favorite running shoes. He loves the comfort and quality and has been very happy with them!

Super comfortable

My 4th pair of Salomon’s. Did not need another pair but loved the colors to support my ISU Cyclones and was blown away by how soft and comfortable they are. Lots of arthritis in my legs and feet but no issue with comfort while wearing these. Great shoes!

Saloman quality shoe

Overall very pleased with shoe, bought online and did not try for fit. Have found unless i am wearing zero cushion socks big toes are making contact with toe cap. Long way of saying their half size too small !. Have had and have numerous Salomon shoes and boots and size normally has not varied. With correct socks are comfortable and leave legs feeling good!

Great stability

Bought these for more padding below the foot and worried about stability, but it wasn't an issue

Want to love... but too cramped at the toes

These were so "good on paper". What's not to love? And with Goretex to boot. Much like another reviewer. When I wore them around the house, they were awesome, but when running with them the fore part of the shoe is just too cramped. I have extra space at the toes but something about them feels too narrow or something at the front? Maybe a bigger size needed? I really, really want to like this just wish I had gotten a half size bigger maybe - it's so tough to say.

Too narrow

Had to return them. Either it should have a wider forefoot, or come in a wide version (being sold in Norway). Then I think it would be a perfect shoe for me; waterproof, comfort and durability!

These shoes were an awesome tool to cross my first 50 mile trail ultra marathon! If you are looking for a shoe that are light weight, hold up moisture (Invested in the water resistant pair), have functional shoes lace system, and feel comfortable yet super responsive. Add a pair to your arsenal!

So comfortable

I have had 3 pairs on Salomon XA pro gtx over past 4 years which have been great ...but really noticed the difference with the Ultra Glide- the extra cushioning makes longer runs so much more enjoyable- they are also a little wider which again helps with comfort on longer runs Really recommend these great shoes

Do not fit true to size and have limited grip

Took these as a recommendation off the shoe selector. Was very interested to try another series over my usual SpeedCross with a bit more cushion. They are anything but. Wearing them on test fit (inside) them seemed great. As soon as I got them out on the trail, a different story. The soles are hard and slippery, even on hard packed trails, inspiring no confidence. The shoes do not fit anywhere near as comfortably as the SpeedCrosses, they are quite painful. No returns either because they were used, not sure how you’d know a running shoe would work without, you know running in them. They are cool looking paper weights now.
