Rated 5 out of 5 by Saypro from Favorite new hiking shoes I’ve taken the X Ultra 4’s on a few trails now and know they’re going to be my hiking shoe of choice. Some shoes take several uses before they’re broken in. These shoes felt like you’ve already logged 100 miles on them the first time you put them on. I live in Salt Lake City, a lot of our trails are already covered in ice and snow and the traction and grip on these are good enough I didn’t have to use my micro spikes. They’re also light enough to be used as trail runners. Can’t wait to use them on a long trail next spring and summer. Putting in for a permit for Mount Whitney and these will be the shoes I wear to summit that peak.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fotoajojo from Painfully Disappointing Salomon Men's X Ultra 4 GTX Hiking Shoe, Deep Lichen Green/Black/Olive Night, 11 Joseph M Eddins Jr 1.0 out of 5 starsVerified Purchase Painful Bump in Arches Color: Deep Lichen Green/Black/Olive NightSize: 11 Across the board Salomon runs small. Great for narrow feet like mine, but order at least 1/2 size larger. Having said that - these shoes were awful. Designed for people with super high arches, also this pair had a defect were the material just above where it meets the rubber at the instep was bulging inward so a hard knot was pressing against my instep. Not a break-in issue - just painfully bad workmanship. Very disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CameronN from Hiking shoe with potential but design issue I bought the new X Ultra 4 after having owned the X Ultra 3 previously. While I love the design and look of the new shoe, Salomon did a terrible job with the design of the tongue and lacing system. With the previous v3 I could pull on the QuickLace and stow the lace pull tab under the housing pocket in the tongue. But with the new v4 the tongue is too short and the lacing system cuts off the stowage pocket at the top of the tongue and you cannot stow-away the lace pull tab. This is really very annoying and makes the shoe unusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucasx360 from Comfortable, and technical. I've owned alot of pairs of Salomons over the years, and everytime they release something new, it never ceases to amaze me!I enjoy moving quickly on the trail, so having a shoe that feels lighter, but still has the same amount of stability, traction and grip is key!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jarret from Uncomfortable I took these on 2 hikes and i gotta say they are uncomfortable. Grip and protection are all there but comfort wise these things are a 1 star. My ankle bone gets cut up by the opening of the shoe. I dont know maybe its just my feet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SierraLeonePadi from Chevron Lugs still a problem in mud or on wet rock I'm disappointed that the chevron lugs used on the bottom side of X Ultra 3 were carried over to its successor, the X Ultra 4. Maybe on some terrains these things work well, but on the wet and muddy steep trails of Oahu, the traction is totally lacking. The chevron lug design does one thing really well, and that is to trap and hold soft mud on the bottom of the shoe. A muddy sole on a muddy trail equals very poor traction. As a result, I basically always have to use Kahtoola Microspikes when hiking on the Ko'olau ridges. If you study the layout of the lugs you will see why mud gets trapped, rather than continually pushed through the grip pattern like it would on a less dense pattern found on shoes such as the Adidas Terrex models. Unfortunately, the outsole also does not excel on wet roots and rocks because the rubber is too dense and inflexible. When hiking through wet river valleys I have to be extremely cautious to avoid slipping. Otherwise the shoes are amazing, but traction is too important for safety and for this reason alone I will be looking for an alternative when replacing my X Ultra 3 shoes.
