Salomon fine-tuned the Men's X Ultra Prime Hiking Shoe for speedy hikers making fast ascents. Its SensiFit upper cradles your foot to ensure a precise and secure fit, and the Ortholite sockliner wraps your foot in a breathable foam that creates a cooler, drier, healthier, and altogether more comfortable experience.

For performance, Salomon equipped the X Ultra with a lightweight, Advanced Chassis midsole, which combines injected EVA with molded EVA to maximize motion control, energy management, and push-through protection. Its ContaGrip sole delivers optimal traction on varied surfaces. The X Ultra also features a gusseted tongue to keep out debris, a protective rubber toe cap for rocks, and a mud guard to keep it clean.

I desperately need replacement insoles. HAS to be originals from Salomon. Aftermarket won't work since they're a normal shape, whereas the original Salomon insoles have an extra "flap" near the arch to cover the shoe material. Without that feet would be rubbed raw. I can't get in touch with them. Any ideas?

Salomon does not sell insoles, would you think something from the brands soles or superfeet would work? Something that is cut to fit?

Great Grip

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

The sole makes them feel like you can go anywhere with these shoes. It has a reinforcement at the ankles that makes them feel sturdy and gives you a stable stand. Also, it has great comfortability at your instep. However, they're kinda hard on your feet soles and can warm up fairly easily after a couple hours of walking.

Fits true

Backcountry came through on this delivery exactly on time promised also ordered some hiking shoes by Solomon fantastic shoes great on the trail that I needed to break them in they were perfect out of the box fit . Light weight and durable

Cheap and burly

    Lots of bang for your buck! Comparable to shoes that are twice the price.


      Love these shoes, very comfortable and the grip is amazing on rock.

      Good shoe but...

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 12

      The shoe itself is comfortable enough, however be aware that the tongue does not have a lace loop, so in my case it constantly slides all the way over to one side of my foot which I find annoying. Other than that, it's a good shoe.

      Exceeded expectations

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 13

      Originally ordered in my normal size, but they were to small for a good fit.
      Backcountry to the rescue and the next size up did the trick, so I guess the sizing runs small. The shoe was better than I expected and I'm looking forward for usein on an AT section hike. I particularly liked the long tongue of the shoe which makes it real easy to put on. This is really important when you are getting old and don't bend so easy anymore.
      Bakccounty's service was quick on the return and no hassles.

      Good Quality for the Price

      I bought these for my boyfriend, here is his feedback:
      "This is the second pair I've had. I like the first ones so much, I bought more. Very breathable and comfortable. They are quite durable, Fit true to size.


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I purchased these thinking I would use them for backpacking but they sat on my self for a year. I just couldn't give up my Goretex boots. But I finally did one trip and WOW! They are very comfortable, hold up well and give me the same secure feeling/performance as a boot. It's nice walking in the rain knowing you can usually dry these overnight, compared to a "waterproof" boot which is just a sponge. Like many boots and shoes, the insole is cheap but holding up OK. But just know it will need replaced at some point. $6 from your local store or a $40 premium model...take your pick. I'm fine with the cheap insole this came with so I'll probably go that route when the time comes. This is a great shoe so I better order another pair before they screw it up with "version 2" or discontinue it altogether.

      I am glad you finally took these off the shelf! Haha.

      I have always had a place in my heart for salomon hiking shoes like this. these ultra primes in particular prove time and time again to be one of the best do it all shoes here in utah on any trails I can find. One thing that has always drawn me to these line of shoes from salomon is how much they don't feel like you're wearing hiking shoes , they give the feeling of your everyday tennis shoe but can handle and trail , root or stream you throw at them,.

      I purchase a pair of Salomon hiking boots for my wife and she loves the fit and comfort. Can't wait to break them in.

      I bought these and the xa 3d pro's, I wear size 11.5 but bought 12s for the toe room on downhills. The xa 3d chassis are good for tough rocky scrabble, otherwise I prefer these lighter and more flexible, also love how the laces always stay tide. Worn in mountains on Appalachian trail

      Unanswered Question

      are these waterproof?

      Durability and support is unmatched!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      Purchased these for my boyfriend and he wears them as his everyday shoe. He'a an active man and puts 10-12 miles in his profession. He has absolutely no pains and he raves about these shoes. The Salomon shoes offer great arch and ankle support. These were worn on a 10k run and were not suitable for running but for walking and lower impact activities, these work great. They are lightweight and the durability is unmatched. These have been on 10+ mile hikes and are holding up great. Salomon nailed it with these shoes!!

      Support and style

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large

      I got these shoes in both a 10.5 and a 10 since I usually fluctuate between sizes. With these, the 10.5's were huge but the 10's worked great! I used these for a twelve day canyoneering, backpacking, and packrafting trip and could not be any happier with the way that they preformed. I could scramble up rocks with a light weight shoe and never lost my traction. When backpacking, I traveled 85 miles with 60 lbs on my back and never felt the weight getting to my feet due to the comfortable build and support of the shoe. On this trip, I walked roughly 35 miles in water and the shoes allowed to be walk easily through rivers while still maintaining their durability. The mesh lining was also very quick drying which was much appreciated along my recent trip. If you expect to get wet, travel far distances, and scramble across rocks, all while looking stylish, these shoes are for you!

      Perfect shoes.

      I'm on my third pair of these babies, before finding them, I wandered forlorn and with sore feet, counting down the miles 'til I could make camp and put my flip flops on. Enter the Salomon X Ultra Primes. Bye bye, camp shoes! Hello, more pack space. These + superfeet + even your heaviest pack = heaven. These have converted me from a sore, other trail runner brand wearing backpacker to a person who forgets they even have feet and just enjoys the scenery. I've had no issues with durability, in fact, all of my Salomon products (shoes, boots and clothes alike) have lasted hundreds upon hundreds of miles worth of trail. I hike mostly on the east coast and on the AT, but plan on using these to conquer the JMT and various parts of Utah this season and have no worries as to their ability to hold up. Running, hiking, slogging through swamps, these babies have got you covered.

      They do run a little small, though, so I order a half size up.

      Awesome Shoes...while they last.

      Pros: All Day Comfort from work to grocery store to mountain trails.
      Excellent traction in all weather conditions: sand, light mud, rock, etc.
      Breathable, feet stayed cool and good airflow through summer hikes.

      After about 6 months of wear they are still in great shape but the soles are coming unglued. I'm very disappointed as I had the EXACT same issue with Merrell's after 2 1/2 months of wear and chose to switch to what was supposed to be a higher quality, more durable shoe.

      great shoe

        Pretty solid shoe seems well built, like the ankle support
