Sythetic/Mesh Panel Upper
The upper of the X Ultra 3 uses Synthetic overlays to wrap the foot and hold it snugly in place, increasing comfort and stability. This material is also extremely durable, offering much-needed protection from loose debris along the trail which could cause damage to the shoe and the foot.

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. Plush padding fitted inside of the tongue and heel cuff areas allows the shoe to sit close to the skin with a reduced risk of chafe and discomfort occurring. 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.
