    An Ultra performance.

    Salomon packed the Men's X Ultra Mid 2 GTX Hiking Boot with performance-driven features for rugged trails and extended backpacking trips. Gore-Tex's Performance Comfort membrane guarantees waterproof breathable protection for year-round climates, and the SensiFit upper cradles your foot for a stable, precise, and snug fit. Ortholite and two layers of EVA give plenty of cush for day-long adventuring.

    Underfoot, the X Ultra Mid 2 GTX features Salomon's Advanced Chassis midsole for stability, foot control, and protection. The protective rubber toe cap protects your foot from rocks, while the mud guard keeps the boot clean after wet-weather excursions. Non-marking ContaGrip rubber helps the sole stick to any surface that the outdoor hosts.

    Love these boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I've gone through three pairs of these, not because they aren't made well, but because I just love them. They fit and feel like a sneaker with more support, are nice and lightweight, and the upper lasts a nice long time with good waterproofing on them. Do a great job holding my narrow heel in.

    Great Boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8

    I have had these boots for over a year now they have moderate to heavy use and still holding up pretty well for me. They are lightweight and very comfortable I have been able to backpack in them all day with no blisters or aches. I feel they are defiantly not meant for a wider foot. They also do a great job keeping my thin heal from having too much lift. Great boot recommend them for anyone with a thinner to average width foot

    Big Win

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    These boots provide the best qualities of both a boot and a shoe. They are comfortable and provide excellent movement with a mid-rise so they also keep the rain and snow out. Traction is great. Low profile design and sleek look. Very happy with this purchase.

    Sweet Boots

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great lightweight hiking boot. Very supportive and comfortable. The soles are super grippy and the gore-tex membrane does a great job keeping your feet dry. These are also very durable and can take a lot of abuse.

    Exactly what I expect from Salomon

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    Bought these boots for a section hike on the AT. They kept my feet from blistering, and kept dry in the rain. Also, these boots are so comfortable I wear them to class.

    Big Fan So Far

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    I gave these as a gift for my brother and this is the feedback he has given: "I have yet to put these through a good waterproofing test, but as far as fit goes, these are great! Super lightweight, comfortable and solid ankle support. They remind me of a lightweight basketball shoe. Stoked to get out and put these to use!"

    Great shoes but has durability issues

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    These are great backpacking shoes. I will usually carry 40lbs and these shoes offer a lot of stabilization. The insoles that come with the shoes are removable. If you have any foot pain then you should just toss them and buy a better pair of insoles. I use Sof Sol Air insoles bc of plantar pain and the paring makes these shoes really comfortable. The sizing is pretty accurate. I am a 10.5 mens in Nike Free shoes and the 10.5 are the same with these Salomons (I think the 4D Salomons are larger). I tried the 10's on in store and they were slightly too tight. I like really tight ankle support like basketball shoes but these boots are really difficult to get them tight. The ankle support is nicely padded but can't be tied down tight enough so there is a lot of free range movement in the ankles. You get used to it. The traction is good. Not Vibram but close enough. The waterproof Goretex just beads the water completely off. Really nice. There is a major durability concern with these shoes. Where your toes flex in the toe box appears to have a significant crease that could eventually crack allowing water in. I don't think any hiking shoes are durable enough to last. These will maybe last you 2 years at most. These boots are among the lightest boots I have ever worn. If you're into fast packing or want a trail runner/hiking boot crossover these are it.

    Nice Salomons

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 11

    Just bought these boots. I've had quite a few different pairs of Salomons. I currently have the Comet 3D GTX and a pair of the trail runners both size 11. So I ordered these in 11 and they're huge, so I need to exchange them for a 10 or 10.5.

    The New Pair that Feels Like Your Old

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    What can I say about the Solomon X Ultra that hasn’t been said already?

    - This shoe is hiking ready, fresh out of the box. There is almost no need for a break in before you head out.
    - The Gore-Tex is great to keep you dry and the tongue is fully connected to the boot so water really cannot find its way in. Now, the Gore-Tex will make your feet warm, but it’s not as bad as it sounds; I’ve noticed that if I’m concentrating on the hike and my surroundings it not a bother.
    - The mid-high ankle supports are strong and work well, my most recent trip was largely on loose rock beds and the support really kept me from straining an ankle.
    - The show is pretty lightweight too, feels a lot like a cross trainer over a boot.
    - The full wrap toe-kick keeps you from smashing anything, and thereby ruining your trip

    All in all, yes, the boot gets a little warm during a hike, but I’ve never found it to be something so overly uncomfortable that I disliked the boot. It will keep you dry, and, I think, most importantly it is very, very comfortable.

    Leaking water after a few months of use.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    This is my third pair of Solomon X Ultra Mid 2 GTX hiking boots, and they all share the same problem - leaking water after a few months of use.

    To be fair, these shoes are extremely lightweight and comfortable, requires no break-in period, which are the main reason I still keep purchasing them. However, they are not designed and built to last in long trek and harsh environment. My last pair started leaking water, after two long trek in Nepal (Everest Base Camp trek and Annapurna Circuit trek). I bought this pair for K2 Base Camp trek in Pakistan, and right shoe started leaking water on the second down pour.

    In summery, these are great shoes if you only do gentle, short hike, and in light to medium raining conditions. For multi-day trek and heavy rain, do yourself a favor and look for other hiking boots.

    Ok here's to start I have boots with the same problem but here's why. Salomon uses gore-Tex water proofing it's famous for being water proof yet extremely breathable the reason why the boots leave is cause they need to be treated and maintained after a while so that means there was no need to buy new boots how gore tex water proofing works is through using chemicals it repels liquid water but allows for water vapor to get through thus being breathable after a while the chemicals wear away so they need to be treated so sorry to say the boots didn't loose their water proofing they needed to treated I suggest you clean then after every hike also to treat waterproofing use leather conditioner by nik wax to keep leather durable for waterproofing use fabric and leather proof by nik wax and let it air dry using a dryer will ruin your boots here's an article on how to maintain you boots hope it helps

    Very confortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    I bought these boots for a trip to the corner of Costa Rica (Punta Burica), It was a 8 hours (4 hours, rest, 4 hours) walk each way. I survived with out any ampoule nor other issues. I really love them and are really usefull in rainy season.

    New but I like

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 12

    I just purchased these so these are just my initial thoughts. I usually wear a 12.5 but I only saw a 12 and 13 on the site so I went with the 12. It turns out they run a little big and fit perfectly. The material fees great, I like the 1 piece tongue, and the Ortholite footbed feels great.

    Excellent boot for shoulder season

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    I love these boots. They do get way too hot in the summer (as most gore-tex boots do) for long hikes. I switch over to trail runners in the summer anyway so this was exactly what I wanted for spring and fall. Fairly light for a boot and it keeps my feet dry in mud/snow.

    Ok for short hikes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    If you hike more than 2 hours your feet will hurt/burn. Comfortable at first then no so comfortable.

    Unanswered Question

    What is the temperature rating on these? I know they aren't the winter X ultra, but I was wondering how cold these are rated for, considering they are Gore-Tex. If possible, I would love to have a boot that I can hike with in the summer and then use to snow shoe in the winter.
