- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
These shoes are amazing. There was no break in period. At all. Went from the box to the trail with zero blisters, zero pain, zero hot spots. The trails I run on are a mix of technical, uneven rocky terrain and slippery southern red clay. The speedcross handles both perfectly. I haven't had any of the early wear that others have experienced. The only thing that took getting used to were the laces--at first, they didn't feel like they could synch down tight enough, but after a couple runs I got used to them. I will be buying these again and again.
not weather resistant
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
I bought these because I run through some dew covered grass on my morning run and need to keep my feet dry, especially with the weather turning cold here in Vermont. How upsetting it was today to have soaking wet feet within a hundred yards! The shoe is comfortable and light weight, although I think a half size smaller would have fit better. Too bad we can't return/exchange after use like other sites offer.
materials seem to wear down faster
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I've worn at least 3 salomon before this one, and I find that the either due to the quality of material or maybe its a byproduct of this construction, but the shoe wore down a LOT faster than my other salomon trail running shoes. specifically for me on the inside of the heel (inside the shoe) I can touch the hard plastic inner thingie. My other shoes have lasted waaay longer than this, but I will say this shoe is def .lighter than the others which is nice.
Also the soles wore down super fast--but I think this is b/c the sole material is super light so the shoe is lighter.
I use this shoe every day and also go jogging 7 miles a week.
Someone else said to buy half a size up, but its true to size actually.
Salomon Speedcross 3 Climashield Trail
So far so good!
The fit on these shoes are great, they are so comfortable, and I've never had a pair of running shoes that didn't put blisters on my feet the first few times I ran in them, and I didn't have a single one with these, despite the 4 miles I ran in them the first day.
I bought these shoes for spring and fall running because of the climashield, figured the ones without it would not hold up so well on muddy trails.
where is salomon quality
I already reviewed these shoes they're not holding up at all . too bad I really liked them but when I checked my bill they didn't make it 2 months without ripping ..............
not holding up
I love the fit & traction of these shoes ... unfortunately after less than 3 months they're ripping at the outside of the toes & that great grippy traction has already worn way down .Where is the quality this company used to be known for ?
End All Be All
These shoes are the bomb! Awesome colors, super grippy and well cushioned. I can't complain about a darn thing. love 'em so far!
Finally a salomon that fits & is as close to the originals I've worn for 15 yrs. I love the traction of these shoes & I'm hopeing they hold up like the shoes of days past ... when the company was sold the quality suffered mightly . The fit & support of these has made a huge impact for me as I walk 5- mi. per day over all kinds of terrain .
Love, love, love my Speedcross 3's. I have one pair with Climashield for late fall, early spring Upper Michigan trails (read cold, snowy, wet), and one pair without for warm summer trails. Wear them daily for errands and everything because they feel so good on my feel, look great, and have the easy on/off cord stop on the laces.
Highly recommended! Great arch support.
One note, I have purchased men's Solomon Speedcross 2's in the past -- to get a bright yellow color not offered in women's -- and while they weren't uncomfortable, the women's fit is definitely better.
This shoe is AMAZING! The fit is perfect. Even though I have to wear a brace on my right ankle till it heals, it was still a perfect fit. Everything is comfortable, keeps your feet dry. It does everything it claims to and its cushions your feet nicely. Ran at an Agility trial this weekend and they were comfortable ALL day. Definitely worth the money
