Salomon Walking Shoe Review with Millet Sports

As a Super Busy Mum, walking is something I do a lot of; from school runs, walks to parks etc. So opting for a comfortable walking shoe is something I think is really important. We only get one pair of feet, so it’s only fair to take care of them. Millet Sports recently got in touch & asked me if I would like to review something from their range of walking shoes. The range available is very good & chose a pair of Salomon X Ultra 2 GTX Women’s Walking Shoes to review. 

Normally, I would opt for a walking boot over a walking shoe, so I was keen to see how they would feel in comparison. The other feature that I really drew me to choose the Salomon GTX walking shoe was its design. I really like how it was designed like a running shoe yet provides the protection & support of a hiking shoe. I have always found both running shoes & hiking footwear to be really comfortable. So having the chance to review a hybrid of the two was quite exciting to me. 

It didn’t take them long to arrive and I have to say, I geeked out a little. Other girls freak out over new Gucci bags {Lord knows why!} and the latest mobile phones – for me? It’s walking shoes!

When I opened the box, I thought the black and purple really complimented each other. I also really loved the low cut shoe design – and at a glance, I knew they were going to be comfortable.

Another feature of the Salomon GTX walking shoe that I liked was the Quicklace system – which enables a fast and easy adjustment of the laces and they never untie or loosen.  This feature was another first for me because I have previously always had laces to tie. I do think the Quicklace system is a real game changer in footwear, it’s super easy to be ready to go and having the reassurance that you can have no loose laces is pretty cool.

The Salomon GTX walking shoe ticks all of the boxes. The high-traction contagrip, in particular, is impressive.  I am forever taking the children down to local creeks, up onto the hills and into forests so it’s great to know whatever the surface I’m going to be supported.

Gore-tex® footwear has always been a love of mine, so knowing that these have a Gore-tex waterproof membrane is a plus for me. Having the knowledge that I could wear these shoes pretty much anywhere, and know that my feet would stay warm, dry & comfortable was a great feeling. We have a local woodland with a river/creek nearby running through it and knowing I can wear these, and still be able to help the children across streams etc without getting my feet wet is great.

The Ortholite performance insoles work amazingly well. I really am a fan of footwear that can provide everything from comfort, waterproof capability as well as being breathable. I know it sounds like such a geeky thing to say, but breathable footwear makes me happy.

Over all, the Salomon X Ultra 2 GTX Women’s Walking Shoes, in my opinion, are exceptional. They tick all of the boxes for me, they look great, they’re waterproof, breathable, have an outstanding grip on the soles and I know will last me for years to come. Great walking shoes like this are an investment and if taken of, will last you for years. I can’t wait to see the adventures me & my new walking shoes have together. Oh, the places we will go…
