Salomon Women’s Ellipse 2 Mid LTR Gore-Tex Walking Boot
The superwoman of hiking boots, ELLIPSE 2 MID LTR GTX® for women is all about helping you fly over the trails. No kryptonite here, ELLIPSE has a specific fit and details for women, along with full waterproof protection and enough durability to endure the most villainous trails.
A huge part of the uppers construction is the Gore-Tex membrane. Gore-Tex is well known for its reliable waterproof properties as well as its superb breathability. This means that all water is blocked from entering through the material but cool air is allowed to flow through at the same time as warm air is being released, creating a cool environment inside of the shoe – ensuring a dry wear. The upper also uses Waterproof Synthetic overlays to wrap the foot and hold it snugly in place, increasing comfort, stability and offers additional waterproofing, giving the wearer peace of mind. This material is also extremely durable, offering much-needed protection from loose debris along the trail which could cause damage to the boot and the foot. Yet another waterproof material used is the Split Suede Leather. As well as offering to waterproof, the Split Suede is extremely flexible which allows the upper to wrap the foot closely for a snug, comfortable and supportive fit.A protective cap has been placed across the heel and toe area of the boot. This will offer much-needed protection to these key areas which could potentially be damaged or feel discomfort if the boot 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 boot. Placed on the upper area of the heel is a pull-strap. This will allow the wearer to firmly grip the boot, making it easier for application and removing. Placed on the footbed is an Ortholite Moulded 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.
Injected EVA Midsole
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.
High Traction Contagrip Outsole
The Salomon X Ultra LTR GTX 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. An OS Tendon in the outsole is running constriction which provides better foot rolling and a softer rebound.
