Key Features


The Salomon Predict GTX is a striking pair of hiking boots - they are bold and can catch anyone's eye.
The textile and synthetic uppers are ideal materials for both flexibility and breathability making them hike worthy as they will give your feet the ability to move and still have air circulation. The EVA midsole is both a responsive and energy-returning foam that will provide you with a long-lasting cushion.

Providing both cushion and protection to the ankle, the Predict Mid Hike GTX boots also benefit from a well-padded collar. The generous cushioning these boots offer is a welcoming hug to your feet on longer expeditions and will surely be a welcomed friend. They also feature a pull tab at the back to make pulling shoes on and off easier.

The thick outsole gives these hiking shoes the lift you desire with any boot - no one likes to be flat to the ground when walking over uneven or even unsteady terrain.

The Salomon logo is present on the heel of the shoe, along with the style ‘Predict | Hike’, printed by the tab.



One of the best materials to use for hiking boots. GORE-TEX keeps your feet dry and is a comfortable material, beneficial for longer hikes in less forgiving weather.

Contagrip MA

What is better than an outsole that knows what it is there for? The Predict GTX is blessed with a great outsole. The rubber compound is both durable and flexible and will give you confidence on both wet and dry surfaces, all whilst providing an impressive amount of traction.

Ortholite Insole

I’ve already mentioned that these hiking boots are basically a big hug for your feet, and with an Ortholite insole you can expect superior cushioning and great performance. It is a durable and flexible insole like many of the other features that these boots include.

Anatomical Decoupling

This technology adapts the shoe to the way your foot moves, allowing for a more comfortable ride and flexible step. It provides a smooth transition along with inherent stability.


I wouldn’t say that the Salomon Predict GTX is an overly expensive boot. It features a range of technologies that will aid you on your hike and will last you a lot longer than a cheaper boot.

Reputable brands will not have a cheap price tag, but they do use the best quality materials and the best craftsmanship.

Who Is This Shoe For?

This is a hiking boot designed for adventure. Its unique craftsmanship and innovative technologies scream 'mix it up and let's go'. If you're looking at trails, easy paths, and uphill climbs, then I would recommend these boots all day long.
