The second edition of the Ultra trail running shoe was already a great success - but now, our partner Salomon has improved the shoe once again! The result is the Salomon X Ultra 3, and it comes in a low version and a mid-height version, as well as with or without the GTX® membrane. We now have this amazing, brand new trail running shoe in our selection and would like to introduce you to it. 22279414_1168081280002784_2511949728030665956_n The X Ultra 3 GTX® is Salomon’s update on the famous second version of the shoe. This trail shoe is designed to offer maximum stability and cushioning. It’s also supposed to stop your feet getting tired as quickly and delivers enough flexibility to ensure a dynamic run. Both stability and damping are possible thanks to Salomon’s asymmetrical chassis, which adjusts perfectly to the shape of the foot, while Sensifit™ technology keeps the foot in the correct position even during tough climbs and descents. 19400054_1094845090659737_5288709361945213531_n There are two different types of rubber on the sole that work together to deliver improved grip and more security on uneven terrain. The heel area of the sole was specially designed to provide extra control and grip when running downhill. Apart from this, the grooves on the sole allow your foot brilliant flexibility, ensuring your rolling phase is dynamically supported. This also reduces fatigue. 18268446_1059595430851370_1330451122159390179_n The upper is made of a mix of leather and textile, and the Gore-Tex® membrane offers waterproofing throughout the shoe. The seamless toe cap shields your foot from stones, branches and any other sharp or hard objects. The special Salomon lacing system allows you to slip into the shoe and lace up in the blink of an eye. The Salomon X Ultra 3 shoes not only impress with functionality but also look great, don’t you think? 22687910_1182452638565648_1918448660731738678_n Pictures: Facebook/SalomonDE
