Salomon took their most popular Gore-tex lined trail shoe and adjusted the height to protect the ankle. They are lightweight yet keep your feet stable in scrub or on the trail. I have been wearing a pair for a week and appreciate the comfort as well as Salomon’s friction-free lace eyelets. You just pull on the laces and tuck the excess in the pocket.
They are available in two color schemes, Black/Asphalt/Turf (shown) and Detroit/Black/X-Games which are mainly Grey with Orange accents. They will accept paint for those who need the extra camo. It is important to know that Salomons run a little small.
The best place to find the 3D Mid GTX Ultra is Blue Ridge Mountain Sports. As soon as they saw them, they laid in a good supply for units in the Tidewater of Virginia area. For those of you in Hampton Roads be sure to stop by Blue Ridge’s Hilltop store in Virginia Beach were there will be plenty on hand.
