These are light and comfortable hiking boots, with great grip on the soles. I love the feel of the Salomon last and these boots are no exception. They were comfortable out of the box for me and I didn't get any blisters during a week of 10+ miles per day hiking over a variety of terrain. The waterproofing seemed to work fine and my feet were not especially hot during summer hiking. My only comment is to watch the width if you have a wide foot. I feel like Salomon runs a little narrow and these felt more like a regular width to me. One other thing to note is that these boots have regular laces rather than the elasticized laces that Salomon puts in their low version of many of their shoes. I actually prefer the regular laces because it gives more flexibility in adjusting the fit.

Best hiking boots out there. They are narrow so I got wide and they are very comfortable. All Salomon shoes/boots seem to be narrow so take that into account when ordering.

The description states that these are sulfur green. The shoe came in yellow accent. The arch is very high and then width is very snug. The right shoe did not fit as well as the left shoe.

This is the boot to end all boot searching. I’ve been looking for a hiking boot that will put up with my woodworking, long walks training for mountains, and will still be comfortable in a regular work day. This is definitely waterproof: Gortex for life. I put my boots through hell and have tried everything and finally found one that isn’t ugly af and still kicks ass. This boot has great stitching and it’s fairly low profile. I wear all black every day and was hoping these wouldn’t be so “dad” like (even though I am a dad), and they are a little thick when you first get them but the padding compresses a little with wear which looks better than some bulky boot and they still stay really warm. I accidentally ordered the kind with “spikes” which should read “cleats” so don’t make that mistake, and before that ordered the insulated version which was immediately too hot for a Kentucky winter but this one stays warm with nice wool socks and can be cool with thinner ones which is great for our confused weather and will be good for climbing Mt Thompson in Idaho later this year. I really wanted ones without the side lace hooks but it seems that every brand does that. Not sure why but these at least stay flushed better than most which cuts down on tripping violently. I still squeeze them closed with pliers but wish I didn’t have to. There are parts of the mountain that you have to squeeze through and if you trip you die so I have to close those side hooks. Anyway, these are super comfortable and warm and totally waterproof. I literally got this app again just to make a review because they are so good. Also, having the cross cross triangle pattern on the sides helps with grip on slippery rocks! There’s a rock outside my back door that gets incredibly slippery when wet and my old boots were one piece on the side and I’d always slip off the rock but these have actually caught my foot on the side and saved my ass. And the stitching doesn’t look damaged by it either. I’m sold. These are golden boots. My only wish is that they came murdered out in all black. Maybe one day...

I agree with many of the previous reviews that these shoes do run narrow. That is a plus for me as I have narrow feet. I am an mature man that purchased these as offering ankle support and a grippy sole. I am very happy with these elements of the Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX Shoes. I am using them during my traveling and can’t be happier.

I purchased the Size 14 US Mens SALOMON 'X Ultra 3 WIDE mid GTX' in black/blue color. My foot, with all my weight on it, measures a hair over 12.00 inches in length, 4.50 inches at the widest part and 4.00 inches almost exactly at the width of my inside to outside arch. These are accurate measurements of my personal foot without socks. These shoes from Salomon fit extremely true to size considering my foot specification. (I profile my foot as a size 14 US mens in EE width.) I would say my foot specs are the minimum specs appropriate for these WIDE 'X Ultra 3 mid GTX', meaning, I wouldn't grab the WIDE variant's of this shoe if you are any smaller than 1/4'' of the specs above. Your foot will feel kinda lost in the shoe unless your tie it up a bit tighter than normal. (Remember shoes will break in and become more spacious over time.) When purchasing these shoes it was important to me to make sure my (4'' wide arch) wasn't hanging over the edge of the shoe. I know I fit size 14 shoes most often than not, it's mainly my wide a$$ feet that make it or break it when looking for new shoes. I can say these shoes in the WIDE accommodate my foot extremely well. No arch overhang on the insides of the shoe and my 12.00'' long (size 14 US mens) foot fits perfect! I wrote this review to offer assistance to those considering these shoes in the WIDE option of the size 14 mens. Use my specs and compare them to yours. I am extremely satisfied with these shoes and they seem like they will hold up great. Extremely perfect fit, not much at all that I would change with the design profile of this size from SALOMON. 100% Satisfied. :)

Caution to prospective buyers: both the width and toe box run narrow in these so if your foot isn't narrow be sure to order them in wide. They felt light, flexible and comfortable right out of the box with no break in required. They also have a substantial toe cap, which is really helpful for hiking rocky trails. On the negative side, the X Ultra 3s don't have an arch shank. This means lighter weight but less underfoot protection so your feet could get sore on a long hike over rough terrain. They also only have five lace eyelets/hooks as compared to some other hiking boots that might have six or seven. To me, these boots have excessive padding around the ankle which makes the tops flare out and reduces ankle support. The too-fat ankle padding plus the minimal number of hooks makes the laces come loose. If you try to cinch them extra tight at the top it puts too much pressure on the front of the ankle. These would be good for people who like low-cut trail runners and don't need extra ankle support.

These are well made, comfortable-breathable, and great looking. I bought these for my husband who gets compliments (from everyone) every time he wears them. I'm a long-time Salomon fan and now he is also. Thanks, Zappos for the consistently great service and selection!!!

I love these shoes! Right out of the box I wore them in the woods through mud, rain, and pollen. The shoes were comfortable and cleaned up easily! The Gore-Tex works perfectly! I went ahead and ordered another pair!

I own many pair of hiking boots and trail shoes (Lowa, Salomon, Danner, Merrill...). These and my Lowa Zephyr are my two favorite boots. I have an older pair of X Ultra , GTX, and a non GTX pair that are very breathable. I highly recommend these boots.

Took about a day of walking around town for them to finally become really comfortable. Seem like good well made boots, don't have any complaints beyond I wish Salomon made all their shoes in wide widths.

I purchased the Salomon X Ultra 3 Mid GTX based off the solid online reviews and was extremely pleased. Without any break in time, I wore these for an entire weekend off hiking and snow play. They were comfortable from the moment I put them on with great kid/ankle support; no blisters or soreness at all. The GoreTex waterproofing performed perfectly. Not a hint of water or moisture got in despite extensive walking through snow. The boots are certainty warmer than standard shoes but don't overheat like snow boots. I imagine these will also serve me well for summer hiking. The fit is more on the narrow side (I have narrow feet), but not too much. Highly recommended!

This shoe, err boot is like the running shoe of the boot world. I do a lot of walking at work, in the field, and over rough terrain. This boot, while stylish, is super comfortable, with plenty of tread. However, I do not like the lacing style - as the tongue's puffiness does not allow a tight fit. About 2-3 times throughout the day I have to re-tighten the laces. I have yet to test its waterproof-ness, and probably will not unless dire circumstances. This boot will remain a backup for days that a lot of walking is necessary. Another type of boot (leather) will be used for other conditions.

Husband loved these, but he found the 13's just a tiny bit too short. He has an old pair that he's trying to replace, but found that his foot has grown a bit and the old 13's no longer fit. The new ones are the same, so we are on the hunt for some 14's. They are really hard to find! Wish Zappos would carry more of the larger shoe sizes. Salomon makes a super-comfy boot, and these are no exception. Just need to experiment to find the right size.

For anyone that needs a roomy toe box. Order this boot in the wide. I do not have a wide foot but I do need a wider toe box. The boot did not feel any different in the length and in my opinion the wide version is only made wider in the toe box rather than the entire boot....this is exactly what I was looking for.

Have worn Salomon Trail runners for years and these fit and feel the same as my running shoes. Took them for a hike in the mud and snow the other day and waded into a creek to clean them off. Feet stayed warm and dry. Love them.

I had wore out my Merrell Moab's and was looking for the next shoe. These are great, cushioning is excellent, especially where my beloved Merrell's fail because of the lack of forefoot cushioning.

So effin comfortable. Just finished 8 days of hiking and my feet felt GREAT. Really wish the reflecting pool shoes came in the wide width, but other than that it was great. Felt true to size and since I have wide feet, I'm overjoyed there was a wide size for me.

Very comfortable boots right out of the box. No break in required. These boots have very good traction and have kept my feet dry during long muddy hikes.
