Sometimes hiking is about getting up, checking the view, and getting back down before the storm hits. When that's the plan, the Salomon X Ultra 2 Women's Hiking Shoe is the kick you want. At 11 ounces, it won't slow you down, but it doesn't sacrifice comfort, grip, or durability to keep things light. The Contagrip sole is plenty burly, while the injected EVA midsole, molded shank, and EVA footbed provide all the cushion you'll need to handle rough and rocky trails. Salomon's Advanced Chassis serves up plenty of stability and support for climbs and descents, and the Sensifit construction and Ortholite sockline cradle your foot in a supportive and loving embrace. As a final touch, the X Ultra's Quick Lace system makes sure the breathable upper hugs your toes comfortably and ensures that you won't have to deal with untied laces or slop.
