Greg C.wrote a review of Salomon Speedcross 3 Climashield Trail Running Shoe - Men's on April 8, 2012
I had to purchase a full size larger than my street runners - I've grown so used to my roomy minimalist shoes the confining toe box of the speedcross was a bit tight. After two 3 milers for a break-in, they performed wonderfully on a wet, muddy, and insanely hilly NC trail for 13.1 miles. The aggressive lugs (are we going trail running or about to fight a velociraptor!) were amazing! They did not clog, and the reversed direction of the rear heal lugs worked like magic on the sketchy steep downhill grades. The lacing system works flawlessly with minimal effort and even though I had to purchase a full size larger kept my heel snug and comfortable without having to adjust any during the run. The climashield material was superb at creating a barrier to the mud and water, while still allowing my feet to breath - not as breathable as a summer shoe, but that's not their purpose... I would definitely recommend these to a friend. Cheers!
