    Speed hiking beast.

    Providing rock-solid stability and unrelenting grip, the Salomon Men's X Ultra Trek GTX Hiking Boot devours large swaths of rugged terrain without slowing you down with excess bulk. It's impressively lightweight, meaning you'll enjoy the benefits of a supportive hiking boot that's both skillful and swift. The nubuck leather upper stands up to the demands of trail abuse without wearing out prematurely. Rubber overlays reinforce the toe from brutal stubs and accidental snags on rocks and thick vegetation.

    For dependable waterproofing, the Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane seals out rain showers, shallow stream crossings, and mucky trail surfaces. Plus, it's highly breathable, ensuring your feet stay dry from the inside-out when you're sweating. Also, there's a gusseted tongue that prevents small pebbles and gritty debris from sneaking inside. And to maintain steady grip underfoot, the Contagrip rubber sole features aggressive lugs for unrelenting grip.

    Good Boot, Horrible Eyelets

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 7

    I bought these boots to use for trails work in Northwestern Montana. I have wider than average feet for a woman, so I normally buy men's shoes. The shoe ended up fitting like a glove. It didn't need a breaking in period either. It was one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Seemed pretty durable, too. However, the fifth time laced up the boots for work, the eyelets started popping off. I wasn't pulling hard on the laces, just normal tightening.I ended up returning the boots within 30 days of buying them, and the Gearheads were amazingly helpful.

    Nice Boot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 190lbs


    I now have 500-600 miles on these boots and think I can give a reasonably accurate review. To start, I purchased the Solomon’s X Ultra Trek GTX Hiking Boot because I planned on increasing my hiking significantly this summer. I had a pair of Sportiva mid-height boots that I really like but given that I expected to be hiking in much rockier terrain I wanted a full boot height for ankle support. Also , based on a previous review I purchased these boots a ½ size smaller than I typically wear.

    Regarding purchasing ½ size smaller: Initially I thought ½ size smaller was perfect. When I received the boots I tried them on with my standard Darn Tough Coolmax hiking socks and they seemed to fit fine. The boots were really comfortable, fit my foot well, and provided the support I needed. All was good, I thought. After many short 4-10 mile day hikes I still thought that the boots were fitting well. However, once I moved to longer hikes and with the weight of a backpack doing 15-45 miles a day, things changed, and the boots are too small. For me, my feet swell after long grueling hikes. This has resulted in foot problems which I had not experienced during shorter hikes. Hind sight, I would purchase the boots at my normal boot size or perhaps even a ½ size larger. This is no fault of the boot.

    Quality: The boots seem to be high quality to me. Nice construction and after 500+ miles and plenty of jagged rocks on the AT they are still holding up fine. I did not replace the foot bed and they are really comfortable. No break in necessary. A couple notes of interest, these boots are HOT. If you have hot feet then they might not be the boot for you. If you live in a cool climate then fine, I live in the mid-Atlantic and they were great during the winter but they have been hot while hiking in the summer. Also the 1st lace hook is locking and I really like that feature. It allows me to have the lower boot laced loosely and the ankle lace tightly. Also, I’ve walked through endless puddles and shallow streams and they have proven to be water proof. Another nice feature, these guys are light. I’ve got a pair of trail runners and the Sportiva mid-heights and the Solomon’s feel as light or even slightly lighter than both.

    Regarding the soles: The soles are not Vibram. The traction is good. I’ve taken these guys on unbelievably rocky and jagged rocks. Large portions of the AT are nothing but seemingly endless jagged rocks of variable sizes. Not sure if Vibram soles would have helped, I did feel the rocks and after miles and miles it does have an impact but my guess is nothing but the heaviest soled boot would have helped. On normal terrain they are fine. One thing for me in the rocks, I continuously hit the tops of the toe box when pulling my back foot forward and while the front of the toe box has a protective shield the tops not so much - ouch! And, they provide the ankle support I wanted and I have not had a single ankle roll.

    All-in-all, really nice pair of boots.

    My New Favorite Hiker

    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10
    • Height: 6'2"
    • Weight: 180lbs

    I'm super excited about these boots! For years, I have been doing long hikes with approach shoes having only owned heavy leather backpacking and mountaineering boots. I've always wanted an ultralight boot with a high ankle for when I'm deep in the wilderness hiking on rough and uneven surfaces. These boots totally fit the bill.

    They weigh about the same as my old La Sportiva Boulder X approach shoes, but they are more breathable, more water-resistant, and have exponentially better ankle support. It's a no-brainer. The one thing the Sportivas had is a Vibram sole.

    I've noticed that in cold weather wet hiking that the sole on the Ultra Trek hardens and looses a little bit of traction, they feel a little slicker in these kinds of conditions.

    Despite not having a harder climbing style edge and sticky rubber, these have been a confidence inspiring summer boot on scrambles with low 5th class moves. However, in inclement weather and colder temps, I would be more conservative given the properties of the sole's durometer.

    I usually wear a 10.5/11 and found myself purchasing a 10.

    I've got a few hundred miles on these boots, and they are still looking like they will be around for another few hundred next summer!

    Horrible Customer Service

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

    Not long after receiving the shoe, it literally fell apart at the seams. Contacted customer service they agreed it was clearly a manufacturing discount. They sent me a voucher to partially pay for a replacement. Seriously? I've made repeated attempts to contact customer service with no response. I will not purchase from Salomon again
