X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Wide Hiking Boot

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.

  • A waterproof hiking boot built for the trickiest of terrain
  • Descent Control technology provides strong and stable foothold
  • Contragrip outsole delivers traction in wet and dry weather
  • Gore Tex waterproof membrane for rainy days and creek crossings

The Only Hiking Boots I Need

The first thing that surprised me about these boots is how well they fit. I got 11 wide, and they were out the box perfect. Probably the most comfortable shoes I own. What impressed me further was their grip, which has saved me from biffing it on multiple occasions. I've gone over rock, mud, and water, and these things have kept my feet in great shape through it all. I feel that my feet are invincible when I put these boots on. I'm pretty sure that by getting the mid style, I've prevented my ankle from rolling several times, and they've always kept my feet dry and warm. I can't recommend these boots enough, and I think they'll be the only hiking boots I'll ever own. I don't think anyone, even Salomon, can build better hiking boots.

These shoes were comfortable right out of the box and gave me the support I needed while hiking with a 50lb pack. I was appreciative that they could accomplish this with little added weight.

Not a good fit for wide feet

I’ve tried everything to get these shoes to work. Different socks, socks with liner socks, wore them for hours and due to COVID-19 I waited past the 30 days so Backcountry won’t allow returns so I walked daily for about 30 miles but they don’t want to break in enough and keep hurting my feet. They seem to have an angle forward enough to keep the pressure forward causing a poor fit. So no Solomon shoes in my future. They seemed to not make the soles wider for a true wide shoe just added material.

I can wear Salomons if I use SuperFeet Carbon insoles, they are thin and create more volume in the shoe, they also support the arch higher than a standard factory installed insole, this effectively makes your feet seem shorter in the shoe. giving more room. and re-lace the laces for Wide feet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoV_RYHMXjk

I have been a fan of Salomon boots, cut tried multiple models and could not fit my wide foot into them without discomfort. Ordered these and the width is perfect in my normal size (11.5). They are comfortable and can be worn with thin to medium thickness socks for all but winter use, have the Quest 4D 3 GTX for that. Have them broken in after a few days of all day use (10k steps a day) and they feel comfortable enough to take on the trail. Good quality and lacing system.

Great purchase

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
True to size

Bought these in size 11, even though I find myself usually wearing 10.5 in street shoes, and the size seems to be what I expected. Slight room in the toe. So, true to size. Wide fit is nice. Provides extra room in the toe box, but still has a very form fitting and supportive achilles/heel area. Good construction of the shoe, material is strong and high quality. What you’d expect from Salomon. Took these is the mud and dust for a day and my socks stayed dry and clean! All around great shoe.

I have wide feet so finding a quality hiking boot is always a challenge. I was skeptical when I ordered theses boots because Salomon generally run narrow even if labeled wide. I wore these boots around my home and in town to see if there was a break in period, the break in period is negligible. Within a few hours of wearing them it was like wearing sneakers on steroids. Very stable side to side. The tread as promised has great control descending and ascending. I have only wore theses boots once hiking and the trail was moderate difficulty. I am hoping to provide additional feedback midsummer early fall 2019.

These boots exceeded my expectations for support which was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting them to be running-shoe mushy and they have been much better than expected in that regard. However there is one major flaw here: The top four lacing points are not grommets but speed lacers. In this case big bull-horn looking speed lacers. I find that the open bull-horn of one boot regularly catches the loops of my laces on my other boot causing a lurch or trip. Yes, this can be worked around by lacing up and then taking the time to tuck the loops under other parts of the laces but I'd rather that not be part of tying up a shoe. With a boot that barely covers the ankle, the need for speed lacing is already a little questionable, and I've certainly owned speed laced boots where this is avoided by design. Its a fairly pernicious element and if I saw a another boot using speed lacers like these I would not purchase them.

Not wide enough

The toe box for these boots are not wide enough. My foot job sits over top of the soles. Nice light weight boots but don’t purchase if you have a wide foot.

I bought these Salomon “wide”light weight hiking boots for my husband and our 1 week long hiking & climbing birthday adventures in Zion National Park. He climbed Angels Landing with no worries, issues, concerns, or any type of slippage!! This is his 2nd pair of Salomon boots... but his 1st ever light weight mid boot! He definitely recommends these boots for anyone who needs wide shoes!!

Great boots!

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."

Best Seller!

Watch the below product video for more info on this best selling shoe! 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!

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!"
