Hey it's darwin i wanted to do a little. Product review of a new hiking shoe that. I've been trying out lately as some of. You might know I'm a huge meryl moab fan. I've been hiking in for years i went. Through three pairs on the appalachian trail this year and got a lot of people. To convert over to them but i figured I'd try a little something different since I've been in those for so long and i chose to try out the salomon x altra. This is Solomon's actual hiking shoe. They're really known for their trail runners but this guy is geared solely. For hiking so they kind of beat it up a. Little bit looks very similar to their trail runner especially with the quick lace in here i really like this system. All the years that i didn't triathlon i was used to the quick laces so it's really cool to see a hiking shoe with the same thing so let's get into the. Shoe first of all this shoe comes in at. 32 ounces on my scale now i wear an. Eleven and a half so that is 32 ounces. Four and eleven and a half which comes in right at two pounds. Some really great key features of. This shoe is the porthole sock liner. That they went with on the inside of here really comfortable there's. No stitching on the inside so your foots not rubbing up against anything which is. Really great if you're doing any type of long-distance i can definitely something you want definitely helps with blisters and the advanced chassis sense of fit. Upper that they went with it really hugs your foot really fits nice like a glove. My foot doesn't seem to move around a lot in it which is obviously definitely good against blisters or anything like that now they went with instead of going. With a be room sole like a lot of hiking shoes now they went with what they called the contra grip system um get some okay lugs on here not as hardcore. As a lot of hiking shoes but lately. Hiking in it i found that i really liked. The traction really liked the grip of this sole so maybe it's something new. Maybe it's something just as good as be broom i definitely have to put a lot more research and a lot more hiking on to it to really see how i end up liking that as far as wet conditions. Snow ice stuff like that but so far I've. Been pretty happy with it salomon also decided to put this little rock bumper up here on the nose of it so. Definitely helps against some heavier rocks going downhill or kind of smacking your toe on anything i really like that little feature as well so yeah all. Around it is a really great shoe I've done a few hikes with it haven't. Done any extended long-distance hiking with it I'm still kind of on the fence if whenever i returned to the appalachian trail in 2016 if I'm going. To go with my Mario odds or if I'm going to go something different so time will tell on that but as of right now I'm really enjoying this sheet really enjoying some of the smaller day hikes and stuff I'm going on with it so check it out if you get a chance that is the salomon ultra x they also make this in a. Waterproof version and they make it in a. Gore-tex version this is the non waterproof and non gore-tex I'm not a big fan since the kind of. Conditions that i hike in especially on the appalachian trail the inside of those shoes get wet they don't dry out this being a nice vintage shoe it'll get. Wet it'll get soaked but it'll dry out a lot faster so yeah again check it out. Leave me some comments below like or. Dislike my video subscribe to my channel. If you already haven't and as always thank you so much for watching. You.

I found what appears to be a bit of. Betrayal If my suspicions are correct if this. Should be going the link might be for. Launching back to the shoe story i. Picked up a pair of oboes and. I have been toying with the idea of trying ovo's ever since i came down with. The plantar fasciitis in my right heel. And let me tell you seven months later. My heel is one well. Not 100% but i want to say like 90%. Pain-free finally and the minute that i. Put the oboz on and walked in them like. Five steps. I knew that my foot was gonna feel. Better because the arch in it is just. Like the arch and my choco sandals and. Those were the only other shoes that. Allowed my foot to feel okay. We are These shoes have been a lifesaver and. The best part is that i found out that. Oboes the insole that goes with the shoe. Phobos makes the insole as a standalone. So i was able to buy a set of insoles to. Put in my work shoes my hope does and. Between using the new hiking shoes and. Using the insoles in my hoe cos my foot. Is finally better and it is so exciting. it's raining harder and i have no umbrella or hat but. Assured you love the way the brain. Well i came back to the road and i have.

You think beach you think palm trees. Umbrella drinks nobody thinks about. Hiking in florida that's like not my. Goat like it's not a go-to thought like oh yeah i bet the trails in florida are fantastic so. When i moved to arizona three years ago.
