In 2019 when I tried summiting Pikes Peak, I was wearing an older pair of Merrell’s. It resulted in me getting a blister and eventually a toe nail falling off! GROSS.
So, I decided to switch brands and go with Salomon. I bought one of their approach shoes when I went traveling through Asia, so I thought I’d try them again but this time for hardcore hiking. After some research, I landed on the Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX hiking shoes.
- At $130, I think it’s a reasonable price to pay for something that you depend on in some of the roughest conditions. In other words, why skimp out when so much is on the line.
- Gore-Tex. Name brand reliability for waterproof shoes.
- Lightweight and looks great. It doesn’t look so bulky that you couldn’t wear it out as casual wear in the rain or snow.
