Take your hiking experience to the next level with the Men's Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Hiking Boots. These innovative boots feature a traditional lacing system with eyelets to easily lace up boots for every outdoor adventure. With a standard, anatomical fit these boots feature a molded OrthoLite® sockliner for an ample amount of comfort while the waterproof material keeps your feet dry and comfortable so you can focus on taking on your next hiking journey. Even with the protective toecap, you'll be ready to take on any adventure ahead while the gusseted tongue will keep the debris out and out of your way with a durable, reliable traction footbed.
Over the years I’ve had several of this style of Salomon shoe, only the lower “sneaker” style. This high ankle version continues the tradition of high-quality and good fit (for my somewhat narrow, low volume feet). Evidently Salomon has not changed the last, so sizing has remained consistent.
The high ankle does not provide any real additional support, but it will help keep debris out and keep ankle bones safer from scrapes on rocks.
One thing I do like over the similar Salomans I’ve had in the past is that these use laces which (probably) won’t wear through the exterior. The “wire” laces of my others would invariably wear through the fabric. Another thing I like is that the lace hooks are sized just small enough to grab the lace and lock it in place a little bit.
I’ve only used them in the snow and cold of this winter, and they have kept my feet dry and reasonably warm (as much as one would expect from this type of shoe).
