Summary

Right out of the box these went on feeling like my favorite go-to shoes for weeks. The toe box is roomy enough for a little wiggle in my toes but stable to keep me from sliding around going downhill. These are capable of gripping all sorts of terrain, dusty trails, granite slides and gravel.

Pros

  • Quality, sturdy shoe
  • Grip of sole

Lightweight waterproof hiking shoe ideal for women who like to move quickly in the mountains. Made with Goretex, these have kept my feel dry when tramping through light water on the trail. The grip on several surfaces has me feeling confident in each step whether on sandy trail, granite rock, or graveled surfaces. 

Right out of the box they felt like my favorite shoe I have been wearing. No breaking in was needed for me. The tongue is connected to the shoe in a way that minimizes dirt and pebbles jumping into the shoe. I have bought three pairs of these so I know I'll have a pair as backup when the others are gone through.

Whether you're strategizing your suitcase for a multi-purpose trip to Patagonia or escaping the glow of city lights to see an obscure comet, the Salomon Women's Ellipse GTX Hiking Shoe makes your decision easy. Waterproof, rugged, and lightweight, this hiking shoe offers support without the clunky heaviness of other trekking togs. The Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane guarantees your trail-trodding tootsies waterproof and breathable protection, so long as the water doesn't rise higher than the shoe. EVA in the middle gives you the confidence to walk all day while the molded arch shank gives you the support to tote a load. Contagrip on the bottom isn't shy about grabbing a piece of the ground so you stay vertically oriented, even when moving with a purpose over sleet-slicked cobblestones.
