If you want great performance, fit, and details without the overly technical look, X ULTRA PRIME is the shoe for you. It delivers the same great comfort, stability and grip on any surface as X ULTRA 3, with a more classic look.
The upper of the X Ultra 3 Prime is made from a PU coated leather. This is a water resisting and hard wearing material. This will protect the inside of the shoe from becoming damp during lighter showers and will protect the shoe and foot from sharp and loose debris. Synthetic overlays strategically placed along the upper offer a snug and personal fit without causing the wearer to feel as though their movements are being restricted. A protective cap has been placed across the heel and toe area of the shoe. This will offer much-needed protection to these key areas which could potentially be damaged or feel discomfort if the shoe is knocked against rocks, walls and various other loose terrains that are commonly found along the trail. These caps can also offer additional support, helping to hold the foot securely in place inside of the shoe. A Pull Strap on the upper heel area allows the wearer to firmly grip the shoe, making it easier for application and removing. Placed on the footbed is a Die Cut Ortholite Sockliner. This offers additional cushioning to the footbed of the shoe and allows it to mould to the user's unique foot shape, offering a personal, plushly cushioned fit. Plush padding placed in the tongue and heel cuff allow the shoe to sit closely against the foot with a reduced risk of chafe and irritation occurring.
Supporting mile after mile of trekking, an injected EVA lines the midsole - an industry leader on good merit, EVA is both light and flexible, with a great disposition as a cushioning material. It actively reduces forces pressed upon the underfoot for a smooth stride through the transition with ample of shock dispersion. The format assists with keeping weight down and maximising responsive cushioning whatever the terrain ahead. A Moulded Shank placed in the midsole offers much-needed stability for that much-needed, firm base. This will reduce the foot twisting too much, reducing the risk of injury.
The Salomon X Ultra 3 Prime Walking shoe features a Contagrip outsole, providing unique traction technology. With a mix of compound, lob geometry and density, it gives the shoes brilliant grip and durability, regardless of the terrain underneath. Utilising different combinations of harder, softer and grippier Contagrip compounds, Salomon's adventure running outsole provides the perfect blend of grip and durability to cover a multitude of terrains. Designed with specifically positions forefoot flex grooves and self-cleaning multi-directional lugs, these outsoles are field tested and proven to dynamically tackle rugged terrains.
