Salomon has updated the X Ultra 4 GORE-TEX to be lighter while providing the stability, grip, and waterproof protection desired out of a trail shoe, according to the brand.

The one-pull tightening lace should make for easy on and off, and there is a place to tuck it after tightening so it won’t get in your way while on the move. And the brand designed the all-terrain Contagrip outsole and the shoe’s GORE-TEX outer to keep feet dry while providing traction even when it’s wet or slippery.
