X Ultra Mid 3 GTX Hiking Boot
Destined for those grand outdoor adventures, Salomon designed the Women's X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Boots with loads of support, stability, and protection. From rainstorms to stream crossings, Gore-Tex Performance Comfort protects this boot with reliable waterproof protection that remains breathable for year-round comfort.
The boot's SensiFit upper cradles your foot to ensure a precise and secure feel, and its Ortholite sockliner wraps your foot in a cushy foam that creates a cooler, drier, healthier, and altogether more comfortable hike. Salomon equipped the X Ultra with a high performance, lightweight Advanced Chassis midsole, which combines injected EVA with molded EVA to maximize motion control, energy management, and push-through protection. Its ContaGrip sole delivers optimal traction on varied surfaces, while a protective rubber toe cap defends against rocks and the mud guard keeps things clean.

I bought these for my wife so she could go hiking with me. She loves them. She said they are the most comfortable hiking shoe she has ever owned. She loves the fact that they support her ankle and they are light weight and waterproof.

Runs Half Size Large
I've had other Salomon hiking boots before, and have always been a solid size 9. These size 9s are about a half size large, and my toes are wiggling around. Need to be exchanged. Otherwise really nice boots!

Need in a wide
I liked these shoes!! They are appealing and lightweight. Unfortunately, I had to return. These shoes are narrow and I need for them to be a little wider in the toe box due to a bunion. Fast and friendly service!!

I bought these for a recent trip to Alaska! We did a lot of hiking and I was able to wear these immediately without breaking them in. I was concerned they would tear up my feet, cause most new shoes do, but these didn't at all. They were very comfortable. This is also my first pair of ankle boots, and I appreciated the extra support. I also wore these for 3 fishing trips. We didn't have any rain (thank goodness) but with the splashing water and fish guts, the shoes kept my feet dry and warm. I would 100% recommend these to anyone. The price is what you pay for!

Best. Shoe. EVER!
I LOVE this hiking boot. It does everything, goes everywhere. It's light and flexible enough to be comfortable all day and no annoying break-in period, but rugged and supportive enough for technical terrain and/or when you're carrying a heavy load. It's incredibly durable too. I used mine no a 270 mile off-trail backpacking trip in the Sierra and not even a stitch was out of place when I was done. I was also surprised how much I loved being in a mid-hiker. I usually go with low profile hiking shoes but the extra ankle support and protection was really nice and I honestly forgot it was even a mid because it was so comfortable. I definitely recommend this as a go-to hiking shoe for day hikes, backpacking, and everything in between!

So Far So Good
"I got these boots for and just started breaking them in the last 2 weeks. Not bad! I think my feet need more breaking in than the boots. They have gotten progressively more comfortable. I couldn't believe how light these boots were when I picked them up. The size is perfect and due to the flexible upper toe box, I'm able to accommodate my wide feet without adding extra room in the shoe." -Laura

Salomon kills it with these boots!
These boots are some of the greatest pieces of footwear known to humankind. They wear well, are UBERcomfy and fit great. The part that I think people really need to consider though is that the tread and rubber soles are SO grippy. Honestly. They make you feel like a mountaingoat. I'd buy another pair in a heartbeat.

Amazing lightweight hiking shoes, fits true to size. Great colors. No blisters.

I recently hurt my knee and ankle and was looking for a shoe that offered good ankle support. Actually I thought I would find a pair of Reeboks in their high top aerobics shoes, but it seems like high tops for women aren't as popular anymore. Started searching online for "best" women's hiking boots and Salomons are mentioned frequently. I wore these all day today and the support for the whole foot is just outstanding. I will definitely purchase this shoe again in the future. As far as size, I wear a 9.5 regular. These shoes may be a skosh big, but a size 9 would definitely be too small. They also may feel a little big because I am not use to wearing a hiking boot. If I ordered again, I would stick with 9.5 for my size.

Got these as a Gift!
I gave these as a gift and they had this to say " These boots are perfect. I swear by Salomon as they're sturdy and comfortable for all kinds of work and hiking/climbing"

Salomon boots are always dependable...
Love my new boots! No break in! Roomy toe box! Great traction on lose gravel! Waterproof! Whether running trails, day hiking, backpacking, climbing 14ers, or just chilin’, I have always had a perfect fit with all my Solomon’s.

So after hiking I n my new Salomon X Ultra Mid 3 GTX Hiking Boots i can say they are every bit as awesome as my other Salomon’s. More leather makes these perfect for fall hiking. They are a tad stiffer in the sense of being more supportive of the entire foot which I like. Water proof. Great traction on the hills - up and especially down. I’m glad I added them to my collection,

Thank you Ann for your informative video. Love the Salomon's!

Hello Ann, thank you for sharing the collections of your salmon’s shoes! I’m getting ready to own a pair for the first time for my hikes. I also like your utility shoes, can you tell me where I can get em? Thank you

For about 4 years now Iâve dealt with terrible foot pain on virtually every hike. It got to a point where I sometimes have to drive home using the heel of my foot because I canât put even the smallest amount of pressure on it after a day in the woods. Metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis, bursitis from compensating my gait. Iâve tried OTC inserts, podiatrists, orthopedics with prescription inserts, hiking poles, you name it with little to no relief. I wore these boots the first time on a 10 mike hike without breaking them in or putting in inserts, and NO PAIN! Iâm so amazed and thankful to have found these and I will now always own a pair! So comfortable and truly changed my outdoor experience!

Wore them hiking Kilimanjaro - awesome
I purchased these for hiking Kilimanjaro, could only break them in by "hiking" around my home location, no hills. I did very little breaking in. Out of 4 woman with 4 different boots, I was only one who did not get blisters. They kept me warm on summit day with one pair of heavy wool socks. I LOVE these boots. Light weight, kept me dry. I can't say enough good things. true to size

Everyday Hiking Shoe
As a Salomon employee, the X Ultra 3 is my go-to everyday hiking boot. I prefer the mid for a bit more protection around the ankle, and some added stability. Watch the video below to learn more about the X Ultra!

Margaret, It's recommended that you have a great fit out the box!
