Whether you're strategizing your suitcase for a multi purpose trip to Patagonia or escaping the glow of city lights to see an obscure comet, the Salomon Women's Ellipse GTX Hiking Shoe makes your decision easy. Waterproof, rugged, and lightweight, this hiking shoe offers support without the clunky heaviness of other trekking togs. The Gore Tex Extended Comfort membrane guarantees your trail trodding tootsies waterproof and breathable protection, so long as the water doesn't rise higher than the shoe. EVA in the middle gives you the confidence to walk all day while the molded arch shank gives you the support to tote a load. Contagrip on the bottom isn't shy about grabbing a piece of the ground so you stay vertically oriented, even when moving with a purpose over sleet slicked cobblestones.
