There and back again.
Whether you're backpacking through misty mountains or summiting one lonely peak, you've always got to factor in the journey home. For trusted performance on tricky downhills Salomon has you covered with the X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Boot. Newly outfitted with Descent Control technology, these boots have the stability and traction you need for a safe journey back to the trailhead.
It starts with a High Traction Contragrip outsole, which combines two types of durable rubber and utilizes a special pattern in the heel for more grip and grab when steep downhill terrain forces you to lean back. Descent Control technology combines with an Advanced Chassis to keep your foothold strong and your heel stable on the gnarliest of terrain.This boot is also built for high performance in wet conditions, with a special Gore-Tex membrane keeping the inside and outside of your shoe dry and that same grippy outsole maintaining its performance on wet surfaces. You've got a snug fit with Sensifit technology and a built in mudguard to keep out mud and other trail debris.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought these for my brother and this is his review: "These shoes were purchased to be my main hunting shoe, but since it's still early spring and hunting season has yet to start, I haven't had the chance to wear them for that purpose yet. I have worn them for a couple of short hikes and really like the fit thus far. The wide version is perfect for my feet. They are much lighter than I was expecting. The only issue that I have with them thus far is that it seems difficult to get the laces tight enough at the top or around my ankle. This could just be because they are new, and I am still breaking them in. Overall, I would recommend these for anyone looking for a light weight hiker."

As a Salomon employee, this is my go-to hiking boot for longer, more technical and demanding hikes. I love the extra support the mid provides!
A good all season boot

Have used these in all types of activities and have yet to find one it does bad, hiking in these gives you added confidence as the heels are reverse tread, the lugs on sole are sturdy I have put over 200+ miles on these and soles still look new no lose of tread depth, they breath as gore-tex on your foot usually does, if you sweat a lot you will get wet but a good pair of wool socks will help that issue, I have had these in water snow rain mud sand , pretty much any ground material has seen these boots and they keep going strong, went from a merrell person to a solomon believer

Got these as a gift! This is what they have to say: "These boots are awesome, I have been using them to train for a trip to Everest base camp so they have been getting beat up a lot lately, yet they are holding up great! Very comfortable, short break in period. Gore tex comes in handy and has worked great! Always feel super stable and supported in these! Definitely recommend!"
