The new ADV-C Chassis targets articulations on the outer foot to optimize stability without limiting your mobility.
The Contagrip® MA outsole grabs the terrain, even when it’s wet or slippery, giving you more control especially on descents.
With softer materials, especially around the collar and heel, a lower-density chassis and women-specific last, this shoe is designed for your feet.
X ULTRA 4 GORE-TEX
For us, a women-specific shoe is fully adapted to the morphology of your feet: a softer cuff, cradling anatomical design and lower density ADV-C Chassis for greater stability. In the women’s X-ULTRA 4 GORE-TEX, this is backed up by GORE-TEX protection and a grippy outsole that powers through uphills and descents, so you can explore your freedom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by J. Daddio from My Go-To Hiking Shoe This shoe ticks off all the boxes - style, comfort, durability, traction/grip, and waterproofing, all in an extremely lightweight shoe. As someone who's not really a fan of "pink," the mocha mousse color is so tastefully done. I've received so many compliments on the trail! Out of the box, I took this on a few hikes that were 12 miles and longer and had zero issues with blisters or fit. I'm a women's size 8 in other Salomon hiking and trail running shoes and the sizing and fit was the same for the X Ultra 4. The trails in my backyard are littered with razor-sharp, baby-head-sized rocks and this shoe delivered all of the protection and stability I needed for a long day on the trail. Well done, Salomon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daisy69 from Fabulous - Beware of sizing This X Ultra 4 GTX is a replacement for my beloved X Ultra 3 GTX shoes. I have been so Impressed with this Salomon shoe that I was eager to get a new pair to hit the trails! I love the integrated Gortex and the basic black color, however, the sizing is WAY off! I ordered my typical size 7, which was the perfect fit of my X Ultra 3 GTX model. I later ordered the size 6 1/2....and afterwards the size 6 which I am keeping. I have NEVER been a size 6! Upon further investigation, however, the European sizing of the shoes (displayed on the box) seems to fit with my general sizing. The size 6 states that it is a 37 1/3 and in Dansko products I order a 37. It would be nice for Salomon to disclose the US and European sizing to assist customers in choosing the right size. The moral of the story? Order a full or half size down!

Rated 5 out of 5 by chealy from A Must-Buy Hiking Shoe! I typically rely on trail running shoes for all my hiking needs but as we head into winter in the PNW, trail running shoes haven't quite been cutting it. That said, this shoe truly has it all - super lightweight (I have actually run in them), impressive traction even on the muddiest and iciest of trails, and great insulation from what I've been able to tell so far (my toes usually get pretty cold. even with wool socks on). As someone who strays away from traditional, clunky hiking shoes, this shoe has exceeded all my expectations and needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Latina_on_the_trail from Great, GREAT shoes! I always go for boots for any outdoor activity as ankle support is crucial for me. But I have been trying these for a few weeks now and let me tell you, I am not missing my boots. The ankle support and stability these provide is amazing. They are so light and comfortable as well. In fact these X Ultra are 10% lighter while maintaining the same fit and stability of the previous X Ultra models. Last but no least, the traction is amazing. I am SO HAPPY with my new X ULTRA 4 GORE-TEX

Rated 5 out of 5 by torid from Fantastic security I've taken these on the trails nearby my house in Richmond, VA which includes plenty of wet rocks and stream crossings. The traction has held fantastic on the slippery rocks and the webbing has kept my foot secure. I particularly love the wider toe box that gives my toes more space to spread out and balance laterally. I prefer low ankle support and this has just the right height for my liking. Strongly recommend these.
