Sometimes hiking is about getting up, checking the view, and getting back down before the storm hits. When that's the plan, the Salomon X Ultra 2 Women's Hiking Shoe is the kick you want. At 11 ounces, it won't slow you down, but it doesn't sacrifice comfort, grip, or durability to keep things light. The Contagrip sole is plenty burly, while the injected EVA midsole, molded shank, and EVA footbed provide all the cushion you'll need to handle rough and rocky trails. Salomon's Advanced Chassis serves up plenty of stability and support for climbs and descents, and the Sensifit construction and Ortholite sockline cradle your foot in a supportive and loving embrace. As a final touch, the X Ultra's Quick Lace system makes sure the breathable upper hugs your toes comfortably and ensures that you won't have to deal with untied laces or slop.

Mom loves it
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: Runs large
Gave this as a gift to my mother and she absolutely adores these shoes. She loves how agile and light weight they are. Being a tiny asian woman, weight matters and these things absolutely deliver. Construction seems up to par with all of solomon shoes, awesome. As far as size is concerned, my mother wears a size 7 and the 7 seems to be working out for her. Maybe consider sizing down if you are on the cusp of 2 sizes.
- Fit: Runs large
These are cute shoes, they look like they do in the photo. Only thing is they run very large! I am usually 9.5 or 10. I ordered the 9.5 and I would think they were a size 11. I am going to maybe order a size 8.5 or 9 and see if that fits better.
