A great boot for people who usually hike and backpack in trail runners (me) but find that a bit of a stiffer show or slightly more support would be nice when carrying heavier loads (also me).
Lots of dust and dirt will come through the mesh, but it's worth it for the breathability.

This is my second pair of Salomon boots. My first was the gtx water repellent ones in black. I loved them but I want ones that breathed a little more for desert hiking. I love the aero. They fit well and are comfortable to wear all day.
Excellent so far, all around
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size

Functionally speaking, great support, tread/stability, and comfort. Sharp look that works in the mountains or tooling around town.
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!
