While the Royal Arches hike through Chautauqua may be a literal walk in the park, it certainly doesn't feel like it. That is, unless you're wearing the Salomon Women's X Ultra Prime Hiking Shoe. Constructed with a lightweight and breathable mesh upper, this hiking shoe features a glove like accommodation with its SensiFit system and women specific design. In addition to its comfortable upper, the X Ultra Prime is equipped with a protective heel and toe cap while a molded shank and injected EVA foam midsole ensure hike long comfort. Not to mention, the non marking Contagrip sole provides ample traction and rugged performance in those scrambly situations.
