Salomon X Ultra 4 shoes
In the spring of 2021, Salomon’s offerings are designed to meet the needs of a wider range of consumers who focus on active outdoor recreation. The solutions previously used by the brand in creating shoes dedicated to professionals have been applied to products belonging to the latest collection, dedicated to a much wider audience. The result was a combination of durable and lightweight footwear, as well as apparel and hiking gear to ensure comfort on any trip.
One of the main protagonists of Salomon’s new outdoor collection, is the X Ultra 4 footwear series. This is the fourth iteration of this iconic model, which has been popular in the market for years. The next generation of the X Ultra is the result of the work of Salomon brand experts, many hours of analysis and testing, which, combined with customer feedback, made it possible to design a shoe that meets the requirements of users. In the X Ultra 4, note the unique design of this model, which has its roots in the world of off-road running. The use of technologies and solutions known from cross-country footwear made the X Ultra 4 stand out for its high flexibility and lightness. At the same time, this model has all the elements of trekking shoes, which guarantee stability, traction in difficult terrain and protection of the foot on mountain trails.

As research shows, the ok. 80% of injuries during mountain activities are related to ankle injuries, so when designing the X Ultra 4 shoe, experts took care to stabilize and protect the areas most prone to injury. The new version of this already iconic model features special side reinforcements (so called. Active Support System), which ensure that the foot stays in one place during movement. This also allows the shoe to adapt to the shape and structure of the foot.
The traction in the X Ultra 4, is thanks to the patented and improved Contagrip®MA outsole, which provides grip even in wet and slippery terrain (such as the. on wet rock). With these, the user is guaranteed more control, especially when descending or ascending. The effect of excellent grip was achieved by creating an outsole that uses various components of top-quality rubber.
An important element of the shoe is the solid rubber in the front part, which protects the foot and toes in difficult terrain from injury. Other important elements worth noting are the strip of leather, synthetic material and rubber around the base of the foot, which protect the lateral part of the foot during movement, making it much harder for mud or fine sand to get into the shoe.
The women’s version has a special profile tailored to the anatomy of the female foot thus protecting it from injuries and abrasions.
Nowadays, everyone is increasingly concerned about environmental protection. The Salomon brand doesn’t forget either. To reduce environmental impact, the water repellent coating of X-Ultra 4 shoes does not contain harmful perfluorocarbons (PFCs).
