Are you in the market for a new hiking shoe? Look no further, because the highly anticipated Salomon X Ultra 4 is here to revolutionize your hiking experience. With its durability, traction, support, and protection, this shoe is perfect for all your outdoor adventures. In this article, we will explore the major redesign of the Salomon X Ultra 4 and discover why it's set to become the go-to choice for hikers worldwide.

A Fresh Look and Enhanced Performance

The aesthetics of the X Ultra 4 have been given a makeover, sporting a cleaner and sleeker appearance. This updated look, reminiscent of Salomon's popular trail running shoes, brings a modern edge to their hiking footwear collection. But it's not all about looks; the new ADV Chassis is the real game-changer. This innovative feature maintains stability, control, and protection in the heel while significantly reducing weight. Although we can't confirm if it's a groundbreaking feature just yet, it definitely promises to elevate your hiking experience.

The Perfect Fit for Every Adventurer

One of the best things about the X Ultra 4 is that it retains the comfortable fit of its predecessor, the X Ultra 3. There are no changes in the last or volume, ensuring that if you loved the fit of the previous model, you'll find the same level of comfort in the X Ultra 4. However, Salomon reports that wear-testers have mentioned the roomier feel in the toebox, possibly due to the upper overlays and structure. This shoe is designed for hikers and backpackers with average-sized feet, striking the perfect balance between La Sportiva Bushidos and Altras.

Unmatched Traction and Durability

When it comes to hiking, grip and durability are paramount. The X Ultra 4 boasts an aggressive lug pattern on its outsole for exceptional traction on various terrains. The rubber compound has been upgraded to a stickier Contagrip MA (Mixed Adhesion), ensuring outstanding performance on rocks, trails, and even in wet conditions. While stickier rubbers might raise concerns about durability, rest assured that the X Ultra 3's hard-wearing outsole sets a high standard for its successor.

  • X Ultra 4 ($120, 12.6 oz)
  • X Ultra 4 GTX ($160, 13.7 oz)
