Salomon Ellipse 2 GTX Hiking Shoes | Review

The Ellipse 2 GTX are great lightweight hiking shoes designed for women

It’s a sweltering hot day and you are pacing along a rocky mountain trail. Sweat is dripping from your brow. You’re gulping through your water supply and you’ve still got miles to go. The last thing you want is a pair of hiking shoes that will make your journey even tougher.

Introducing the Salomon Ellipse 2 GTX hiking shoes. They are described as the “superwoman of lightweight hiking shoes”. These ankle-length boots have been designed for hot summer days on the trail. Superpowers may not include x-ray vision or super strength, but these hiking shoes will help you fly along the trail at an unparalleled pace.

Salomon have invested extra research into making these hiking shoes specifically suited to women. After conversing with a collection of hardy female testers, Salomon came back with a footbed that is specifically moulded to the female foot.

“One of the things we really like about this product is its versatility.”

After all, women have a different shaped frame to men and their feet deal with pressures in different ways. Inside the Salomon Ellipse 2 GTX hiking shoes, the hardness of the sole and the shape of the collar have also been adjusted to suit women’s feet. Salomon haven’t fallen into the “shrink-it-and-pink-it” trap. These shoes are good-looking without a hint of pink in sight.

Waterproofing is important when it comes to hiking shoes. The split-suede leather outer is weather-resistant and durable. Inside the shoes are lined with GoreTex to keep your feet warm and dry in inclement weather. This GoreTex is specially suited for high intensity mountain activities, so they will not only keep the rain out but allow your feet to breath on the move. The Contagrip sole has an aggressive tread that will stay gripped to the trail even when it’s wet and slippery.

It’s no surprise that Salomon create some of the best mountain hiking shoes. After all, the company hails from the French Alps. Founder François Salomon started out making revolutionary ski boots and bindings in the 1940s before eventually branching out into other mountain pursuits.
