Well, this article is going to prove the claim by reviewing the pair of shoes. If you wish to know more, then, it is recommended that you stick around and read this article to finish!

Salomon X Ultra 2 Gtx Quick description

Although considered as a hiking shoe, the shoe we are discussing in this article is actually more suitable to be described as a trail shoe- a variation of hiking boots but with lighter weight as well as having a cut that is lower than most hiking boots on the market. The shoe is absolutely light and it feels comfortable while still very stable. However, though, it is still heavier than true running shoes like the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 Women. Now, let us check out several aspects of the shoes, shall we?


Performance-wise, the shoe provides a high impression when it is tested on rigorous terrains such as a very steep cliff for hiking. No compromises and rest times were given during the test and yet, the shoe performs excellently. Salomon X Ultra 2 GTX is so light and the support provided is utterly decent.

Well, what about the stability provided by the shoes? Well, you can say that the support is absolutely satisfying. With its Contagrip sole, you would need to worry regarding its level of grip even on the toughest terrain available.


Well, we have figured out the shoes are awesome when it comes to performance testing. Well, what about its weight? The shoe is only 1.7 pounds or 0.77 kilograms- making it extremely lightweight. With such weight, it might not be the lightest hiking shoe available on the market. However, though, there is a reason why it is slightly heavier than its competitors.

Is it waterproof? To have a waterproof feature is a thing desired by those who are in search for the best hiking shoes. However, not all of them have this kind of feature since it requires a shoe to have additional layers or more materials which will result in added weight and less ventilation. This is the reason why the shoe we are talking about is slightly heavier than its competitors- it is decently waterproof! Fortunately, the Salomon X Ultra 2 GTX remains well-ventilated and you would not need to worry about sweaty feet when wearing it.
