This is Salomon's 2nd edition of this popular, sleek hiking trainer. It has a re-shaped bumper on the toe and is more women specific. The X Ultra 2 GTX is light with a textile upper that resists water and a Goretex bootie liner inside to keep feet nice and dry. The Advanced Chassis gives great motion control and is responsive and stable as you move over different types of terrain. Minimalists will love the Quick Lace System which cuts down on weight and allows for one-pull tightening with a pocket in the tongue for tidiness. Ideal for ladies who move fast and are out to get somewhere!
