Salomon SpeedCross 2
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
It took me about a mile to fall in love with the Speedcross 2 or 3.They were like gloves for my feet, agile and grippy on varied off-road terrain, comfortable on the streets I had to navigate to reach the trailhead. And surely soon after my wife got a pair we stayed with them ever since...
Have 3 pairs I mainly use (green, red and black) and used it also through entire winter because the grip is still great for the snow/icy conditions.
I havent found a better shoe ever since discovering this model.
Salomon it is now.
The sports utility shoe.
I absolutely love mine. When i first got them I could not get over how light and comfy they were. I recommended them to my co-worker as well and they agree with me that these are the most comfy, trail runners we've ever worn. I've used these for running, hiking, worn to the gym, for everyday use, ect. and they've always performed and remained comfy and dry in all conditions. I highly recommend these and suggest prying the purse strings a part for the Gore-Tex versions if you do any amount of off road trails when there's a chance of mud/ water. My only caveat would be that the grippy nubs on the soles wear kinda quick if used daily.
i've put some substantial miles on these shoes and they still perform well. My second run in them was about 11 miles without any problems. They are quite waterproof but some water is able to very slowly leak through when they are submerged. The lacing system works great,the footing is secure, and the tread lasts a while . I wear smartwool mini socks and have been comfortable from snow to 90 degree weather.

I would like to know if comes in size US 7 or 7.5?
where can i find it?
According to their website, http://www.salomon.com/us/product/speedcross-2-gtxa.html#bas, they are available in 7 and 7.5 US - haven't been able to find that size online, however.

Is the difference between these and the SpeedCross 2's one has a Gore-Tex lining and the other doesn't?
Correct. That is the only difference. So if you want breathability go with the regular SpeedCross 2s; if you want waterproofness get the GTX version.
The best shoes I've ever owned. Period.
Hiking, running you name it, these shoes do it well. Versatile and true to size but most importantly they look insanely awesome!!!!
Just finished a 20 mile trail run in 5" of snow. These shoes along with gators kept my feet dry! They are a great shoe and i highly reccomend them to anyone. They are light and very comfortable and will be the only shoe I will purchase in the future!
Great shoe/Excellent Customer Service
Great shoe. My fiance loves them. However these were a Christmas present and he just called me today to say that the part that holds the shoe lace on one of the shoes broke already. However, I have had EXCELLENT customer service and was told that all I had to do is send the shoes in and they will send me a new pair. Love Backcountry.com! :)
Where do I start?
I heard that the traction on roads and pavements weren't that great. I beg to differ.
After having 6inchs of snow in London followed by rain and more rain the grip and and traction I got from these bad-boys was amazing. On top of that, after hours of walking and running in one setting my feet were still dry and comfortable. The pleasure I've I have wearing my new pair of Salomon SpeedCross 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe I don't think can be matched. I think everyone should own a pair as there are as good as the normal everyday trainer, and fit for all the running and scrambling you what to put them through.
fits like a glove
after owning the previous years model there was no doubt in my mind I must have a second pair. I traveled out of country to very rough terrain on 2 occasions last year....my Salomon SpeedCross' were amazing. The only issue I read before purchasing warned against water getting in....that while they keep your feet dry...if you find yourself in a flood and the only way to travel is up a 60% incline irrigation line you just may have some wet feet and the water stays in the shoe. Good news...the next morning they were dry. But now I have 2 pair and will ensure I always have a dry pair.
Pic is only one i could find from previous trip showing the shoe...
My Speedcross 2's
My Speedcross 2's
great, but not the best for me
like other reviews say a race shoe built for the trail. That being said they are narrow and fitted. I think they ride quite high making them feel a little unstable for running. It may seem as im bashing these shoes but i think they are great just not for running i aboslutely love the salomon speed lace and the grip with this tread is unparralled. these make great light weight hiker if you don't need the anckle support of a boot. All in all a kick a$$ shoe thats super waterproof and sticks like glue to the the dirt.
How are they sized, like Nike?
How are they sized, like Nike?
I have several Nike's. mostly 10.5 but i went down to a 10 with the Salomon's for a thinner sock and a more snug fit. Didn't want any play in the shoe. It works great for me.
