Why We Like The X Ultra 4 GTX Wide Hiking Shoe

Salomon's signature line of trail shoes returns with powerful upgrades, and this version is built to fit hikers and runners with wider feet. The new chassis protects ankle articulations on the outer foot, providing extra stability without limiting mobility, so we feel even more confident when navigating technical terrain. The Contagrip MA rubber sole has tire-like lugs that provide us with improved traction on a wide variety of surfaces. To make these shoes the ultimate trail companion, Salomon added GORE-TEX waterproofing to keep feet dry from the outside and inside.


  • Updated, signature trail shoe crafted to fit wider feet
  • GORE-TEX membrane blocks moisture while staying breathable
  • 11mm drop keeps the heel cushioned to keep up with fatigue
  • Synthetic uppers treated with water-repellent for extra protection
  • Chevron-shaped Contagrip MA sole provides multi-directional grip
  • Minimalistic Quicklace closure is strong and easy to use
  • Designed with the stability and agility to both hike and trail-run

Not Suitable for High Arches

I think the design of these shoes is not very suitable for people with higher insteps. When I first put them on and started walking, I felt that my feet were being pressed by the hard parts of the shoes. I'm not sure if this happens to everyone, but unfortunately, because of this, my feet hurt for a long time.

Nice upgrades over previous models

Overall nice upgrades from previous X Ultras I have. I like that they are available in wide sizes. My only complaint is the tongue on the left shoe drifts outboard slightly (a bit nitpicky but annoying to me because I’m constantly reaching down to readjust).

Unmatched Comfort and Performance - Perfect

I recently had the pleasure of completing the iconic Half Dome hike in Yosemite National Park with the Salomon X Ultra 4 Wide Gore-Tex shoes, and I couldn't be more impressed! As a 58-year-old male standing at 6'4" and weighing 240 lbs, finding the right hiking shoe has always been a challenge, but these shoes exceeded all my expectations. From the moment I put them on, the comfort was unparalleled. The wide fit accommodated my feet perfectly, providing ample room without compromising on support. The Gore-Tex lining kept my feet dry and comfortable, even when trekking through wet conditions and crossing streams. During the grueling ascent of Half Dome, the X Ultra 4 Wide Gore-Tex shoes provided exceptional grip and stability. The rugged terrain and steep inclines were no match for these shoes. The advanced chassis and Contagrip outsole delivered fantastic traction, giving me confidence with every step. The lightweight design also helped reduce fatigue, making the challenging hike much more manageable. But the greatness of these shoes doesn't stop at Half Dome. I've also used them on several day hikes, and they have consistently performed flawlessly. Whether navigating rocky trails, muddy paths, or steep descents, these shoes have provided outstanding support and durability. The fit and comfort of the X Ultra 4 Wide Gore-Tex are simply unbeatable. The cushioning and support are perfectly balanced, ensuring that my feet remained comfortable even after long hours on the trail. The Quicklace system made it easy to get a secure fit, and the protective toe cap added an extra layer of security against rocky terrain. In conclusion, the Salomon X Ultra 4 Wide Gore-Tex hiking shoes are a game-changer for any avid hiker. They offer exceptional performance, unrivaled comfort, and outstanding durability. If you're looking for a hiking shoe that can handle any adventure and keep your feet happy, look no further. These shoes are worth every penny and have become an essential part of my hiking gear. Highly recommended for anyone who values comfort, performance, and reliability on the trail!

Worn out already

After approx 6 months the both shoes have worn though at the inner heal, exposing plastic which cuts into the skin at the back of my heels. Very disappointed considering the price.

Cool shoes not very comfortable

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
13 wide

After buying these i read a lot of reveiws about how the design pulls tight on the top of your foot in a pretty uncomfortable way and after a long day down right painful. Like some others, i use special insoles and that made it a lot better. still have only worn them a couple times so we’ll see if it works out long term. also i bought them caus they look cool not to trail run and they have almost no cushion so not very comfy even if they fit well. i like them tho sort of! they look good!

uncomfortable and disappointing

i have a 20 year history of being happy with Salomon shoes. This one was hot when walking on a day of 72 deg. F. i found it impossible to wear. it may be fine for winter but not for warmer days . i also found the design to be very ordinary and uninteresting.

Reasonable product, low QC

I purchased these around 1 month ago after a pair of other Salomon’s failed. Love the water proof, aggressive traction design, but quality lacks. On one of the shoes, the upper has a pressure point on my arch, from what I can feel it’s from poor assembly. Another return isn’t an option at this point due to lack of time, and I have since purchased a different set of shoes all together, that I love. I have the mid height version, which are a much better product all together.
