Salomon Trekking Shoes – AUTHENTIC LTR GTX®




I was using the latest Hiking and Trekking Shoes – Salomon Model – (AUTHENTIC LTR GTX® ). Since May, 2017, I have been using this hiking shoes for 7 event (tropical hiking and alpine trekking) starting from (Mount Gangshika – China, Mount Damavand and Mount Alam Kuh in Iran, Mount Kinabalu in July, Mount Fuji in August, Mount Kilimanjaro in August and lastly Mount Kinabalu in Sept).






The Salomon Hiking Boots – Authentic LTR GTX is a fantastic hiking and trekking that delivers a lightweight, comfortable feel and classic leather style. But the above hiking trips makes me feel that the boots have so much to offer.


The first time I use the Salomon trekking boots – Authentic LTR GTX was at Mount Gangshika, China in May 2017 and followed by another 6 more hiking and climbing around the world. This pair of Salomon trekking shoes feels incredibly light compared to the normal trekking shoes and very supportive. The Clima-shield waterproof technology help keep my feet protected and dry and provides the comfort and support that I need for rough, rocky and snowy trails.

The shoe was good for the first part of the trekking on rough and rocky trail. I also tried the Contragrip outsole which performed very well on rocks especially at Mount Kinabalu, Borneo.

I am very comfortable with their Die Cut Orthilite insole, gusseted tongue, and injected EVA. The Boots also had a protective leather toe cap that efficiently protects the foot from accidental rocks kicking, whilst the heel has Salomon’s signature rear Heel Strap. I found the self-locking ankle eyelets fantastic at keeping my foot securely in place, reducing heel lift considerably. The High cut profile provides increased ankle support, stability, & protection.





On the snow trail at Mount Gangshika, I found the waterproof level is reasonably good.
