Description

Run through the nastiest parts of winter.

Run through the deepest, darkest months of winter with the Men's Snowcross CS Trail Running Shoe. Salomon gave this bad boy a sole with rubber spikes, a water-resistant upper, and a zip closure to keep snow from invading at the laces. Don't even think of looking at your summer trail runners, they don't stand a chance in comparison to this dedicated winter training shoe.
  • Highly breathable Climashield lining offers supreme protection against wet weather at the tongue and forefoot
  • Upper has strategically placed textile for durability, mesh that keeps out trail debris, and a water-resistant textile covering
  • Feather construction keeps the upper lightweight and flexible, but also highly supportive
  • Seamless construction (2nd Skin) means that the textile upper glides over your foot rather than chafing
  • SensiFit is Salomon's unique way of shaping the upper to wrap around your for a close and responsive fit
  • Ortholite sockliner encourages efficient moisture transport so sweaty moisture moves away from the surface of your skin
  • Quicklace lacing cinches down and secures the shoe fit with a simple pull of a drawcord
  • Zip gaiter closes over the lace area to lock out snow, mud, and precipitation so your foot stays dry
  • Muscle chassis provides dynamic cushioning that smooths out rough trail conditions and uneven and unpredictable terrain
  • Contagrip sole is highly durable and designed specifically to provide superior traction in mud and snow
  • Ankle pads protect your ankles from hazards on the trail like rocks and chunks of ice

Almost a Great Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I run every day to and from work, in the winter in Ottawa, Canada. My quick points; The studs are great, but needs more of them. Never had cold feet (except when wet), even in the -30d Celcius range. The bootie should be a bit higher. What a beautiful snug fit (once you're in). They feel heavy. Now for what almost fails this shoe; It water resilience is beyond poor. I've never been so angry with a shoe. Finally, the lack of reflective elements are almost as shameful as the design that's no doubt intentionally meant to look like reflectors. All those white stripes; nope. The white on the back of the heel; nope. The only reflector is a tiny strip on top the toes. Really Salomon? On a $200 shoe. Shameful. Winter runs often mean dark runs. If there was another shoe in this price range, I would buy it in a heartbeat. They have earned their keep with their fit, warmth and decent grip that still works well enough when you have to run on pavement or cement. My previous shoes were LaSportiva also with a bootie, but they were so waterproof I'd basically run through anything in my path. Now discontinued I think.

Lousy Grip, nearly useless studs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are speedcross 3 with a few shallow studs and a gaiter. I thought these is a snow oriented trail shoe that doesn't suck but I was wrong.
Grip is surprisingly poor. Although the lugs are deep, the midsole is very thick which results in an unresponsive ride. Also something about the shape of the outsole causes the shoes to wash out on off-camber trails. These will not compete with shoes like the Fellraiser or inov-8 x-talon.
On ice the studs are hardly helpful because they are small and sparsly used. I found myself sliding on hard ice in situations where other winter shoes would bite. The studs need to be at least twice as long, and at least twice as many of them. Icebugs have an outsole with a stud in every other lug for a reason.
The toe box is narrow and relatively tall, but this shoe is designed to be narrow so I can't complain.
Finally the gaiter. These shoes cannot be worn with low socks because the "seamless" gaiter padding (am I supposed to be bashing my ankles while running?) chafes against my skin and draws blood within miles.
Durability also isn't what I expected out of a $200 shoe that isn't a purpose built racing flat. Seams are already falling apart on some of the overlays, and that gaiter padding has chafed a hole in itself.

This is a trail shoe with an integrated gaiter and metal traction from the company that sponsors the best mountain runners in the world. I expected this shoe to be comfortable on my local perpetually icy winter hill but was proven wrong. For mellow groomed x-ski paths this shoe is overkill with a few ounces per side of excess stuff. On ice or breaking trail this shoe doesn't cut it.

Wet and cold feet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Traction is great on icy snowy trails, the studs are a huge help, comfortable also but they need to have a gortex liner. Whats the use of all that traction and debri protection when the water runs right in!
