What do the words sloppy, painful, and insecure have to do with the Salomon ULTRA GLIDE? Absolutely nothing.

We’re fairly certain that Mammut’s designers were sitting at their Swiss headquarters dreaming of big days running in rugged alpine terrain when they came up with the Aegility Pro Mid Shoe.

The All-Terrain Traction does just what it says - provides outstanding grip on all-mountain surfaces. Mesh uppers breathe well and prevent sweaty swamp foot..
You might think that because it has the word “ultra” in it, SCOTT just slapped some extra cushion on a regular running shoe and called it good. Lucky for us, SCOTT doesn’t roll like that and they really focused on the needs of ultra runners when making the Supertrac Ultra RC. As a result, this shoe is dialed in more ways than one so that when you’re out there all day (and night), y..
