The Salomon X-Ultra Forces MID GTX is a very lightweight shoe that is suitable for work, activities and everyday conditions. The shoe is equipped with Salomon XA Pro 3D technology and is extremely durable thanks to the materials used.
Equally comfortable for low-visibility and high-pace activities, this shoe combines the agility of a trail running shoe with the stability of a lightweight hiking shoe.
Equipped with an advanced chassis that provides lateral support and puncture protection underfoot, the boot is protective but does not compromise freedom of movement. The upper material is robust and very flexible. To meet these requirements, a non-reflective material mix of dirt-repellent mesh, PU-coated leather and single-layer mesh was chosen.
The underlying GORE-TEX® membrane makes this shoe an ideal companion in all weather conditions. The SensiFitTM system supports the foot from the midsole to the lacing system for a secure, precise and almost personalized fit. The inside of the shoe is reinforced with extra material to facilitate climbing and fast rappelling.
The performance and stability of the sole construction play a crucial role on the field. In combination, the Contagrip® Chevron Lugs outsole, Advanced Chassis™ and the Enigma Zero HT2 anti-puncture insert provide an optimal response to all demands. An OrthoLite® insole provides a comfortable fit and extra cushioning in the shoe, while perforations in the sole promote a pleasant climate for the foot.
Every part is reinforced, from the stitching to the mesh to the laces and outsole.
Salomon's 3D Advanced chassis, sourced from Trail Running, guides the foot even on the most uneven terrain and provides excellent protection and stability for comfort throughout the tour.
Even with its increased durability, the XA-ULTRA FORCES MID GTX is one of the lightest shoes in its class.
