Description

For your quick, calculated steps during a race or heart-pounding solo mountain loop.

The race course may follow a long and winding mountain trail, but you welcome each coming mile thanks to the aggressive, lightweight Salomon SpeedCross 3 Trail Running Shoe. With less bulkiness to slow you down, this race trail shoe provides just enough cushioning and and excellent grip to keep your strides strong and true whether or not you're racing toward an established finish line.

  • The Lightweight Muscle chassis features two layers of EVA in the midsole for reducing the constant impact of running, without more junk to slow your pace
  • Mud, slick rock, and fresh snow are no problem thanks to the non-marking Mud & Snow ContaGrip rubber outsole sticking you to the terrain
  • An anti-debris mesh and water-resistant textile upper with mud guard help you master the trail, even if it's not in perfect condition
  • Sensifit outer design uses a one-pull Quicklace system to ensure the shoe wraps tightly around your foot and doesn't move throughout your many miles on the trail
  • Ortholite footbed cradles your foot with shaped foam and an EVA heel cup for additional impact absorption

Great Lacing System

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I don't do a whole lot of trail running. I use these shoes to walk the dog on gravel and mud, as well as for pre and post shred sessions on the hill. I'd say out of the box they have a true to size fit. Mine seem like they got tighter the more times they experienced wet/dry cycles though. Walking on the tall tread is a unique experience. It feels like you're floating on rubber.

Awesome Shoes!

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

This was my first pair of trail running shoes. I actually never knew there were shoes made specifically for running on trails. I've been a moderate runner, mostly on the treadmill at the gym and hiker. I've found myself wanting to run trail rather than hike them, so once I heard there were trail running shoes, I read through reviews and ended up buying these. They are awesome shoes!

The first time I took them out, I went hiking and found myself complementing the shoes the whole time to my friend. The were comfortable from the first time I put them on, so no break-in period was needed. The lace system is pretty cool. They're easy to tighten and loosen. Added bonus is that there is a small slot on the tongue to tuck the laces into. I didn't know about this at first but once my friend told me, I couldn't imagine a better thought out shoe.

I've taken these shoes on some 5-6 mile hikes as well long trail runs (8 miles) and they still feel like my feet are in clouds. I've considered buying another pair as a spare just in case I can't find the same pair in the future.

I'd highly recommend these shoes! I haven't had to test them in mud or rain since we're in a drought in California, but for whatever I'd put them through so far they've been great.

Dirt, Rock, and Water...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 6' 0"

    Size Purchased: 10

I bought these before a trip from Grand Canyon to Zion. These bad boys went through grass and mud in the Canyon wash, over rocks on Angels Landing, and through water in the Narrows. They held up like champions every step of the way and the grip was like superglue. I did nearly roll my ankle a few times along the way, but I am a clumsy hiker. Go for something with a little more ankle support if you stumble around like I do. I bought a size 10 (my normal size) but I should have gone 10.5; I only notice it when I stub my toe which is not often. Fantastic shoe and it still looks brand new.

The best

    Size Purchased: 8.5

I use these for both hiking and trail running and absolutely love them. they are a little tight/narrow at first, but break in nicely. I love the lacing system.... most of the time I just keep them loose unless i'm on some especially tricky/loose terrain.
I usually wear and 8 in most shoes (Nike, Vans, etc.). Went with 8.5 in these and it was perfect. a little space is good to keep from smashing your toes, so I would say when in doubt, size up in Salomon trail runners.

Still my favorite shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

  • Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 135 lbs
    Size Purchased: 7.5

Wore through my backcountry.com exclusives from 2014 in about a year. Still some tread but starting to leak through. They are a high wear shoe, but unparalled comfort and grip in my opinion. Hundreds of miles on them, so one season of use is reasonable.

This time around I opted to bump a half size down which is a very snug performance fit for me and went for the non Gore-Tex version. After several days of use I can tell they are slightly cooler than the Gore-Tex version, but do get slightly wet jumping through puddles etc. Where I miss the water protection, they make up in quicker drying time. These are last years model, but design remains the same.

Still my favorite shoes

This shoe fits true to size. It has a very aggressive out-soles which works great on any dirt surface. This is my go to running shoe since I live close to a trail network. I have had a couple pair of these and they last a long time if used on soft/dirt surfaces etc. I love mine and have put them through the wringer. Will buy these again and would suggest to a friend.

Speedcross 3

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 11"
    Weight: 175 lbs
    Size Purchased: 11

I just used these shoes on a 50 mile hike in pisgah national Forrest . These shoes worked really well for me! My pack weight was about 25lbs when I started and I never had any problems or fear of rolling my ankle. These shoes are very light and grip well in all conditions but you will have to watch out when treading on wet logs or rocks because you could slip. I got these shoes wet and they dry out very quickly. After 4 days of hiking I did not even have one blister. I would recommend these shoes to any lightweight hiker, just look out for slippery rocks and logs. These shoes run true to size. I wear an 11 in Nike and the 11 was about the same

Great cold wet muddy trail runner but...

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

I've put mine through the ringer and I love them. The lugs however are quite soft and wear quickly if you do mixed surface running like me. Way too warm for summer running but you should know that already. I sized up a bit having a EEE foot

Great shoe. I own a few Salomon's and noticed that this shoe runs a tad bit more narrow then other shoes. But a slight loosening of the laces corrects that. Great shoe and very durable.

Gecko Green and Black

These have turned into my favorite shoe to wear.

I have people remark about them everywhere I go. "Nice Shoes"

They don't have any waterproofing but they are great to wear while working out.

I have said it before.. They grip like crazy in the right conditions. They will also lay you out flat on your ass in the wrong conditions. They aren't great in wet and smooth conditions. You could be running down a trail and if you are in the loam you'd be fine. Step on a wet log or rock and you could end up on your ass.

I still love them.

Slow pitch softball

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

I originally picked these up as a trail running show until one faithful day where I was running late to a slow pitch softball game (yes this is what my lifelong baseball career has come down to... old man beer league softball.) back to my review I went straight from the trail to the softball field and they were amazing! They provided plenty of grip while running the bases on soft loose and dry dirt. Needless to say my whole team now plays in these and they are amazing! We win a lot of championships in these shoes not because of the shoes but they do help us win in comfort and style..

Best Trail Running Shoes

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

I love these shoes!

Their lightweight feel and aggressive tread took some getting use to, but after a couple of runs I am in love! The shoes are light enough that I hardly notice them and the tread has kept me from slipping on plenty of loose trails while running.

I bought my wife a pair of the women's version and she really likes them too.

Amazing Trail runners

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These trail runners are pretty amazing! The grips on these shoes kept my strides in place and does amazing on trails. They're light, provide great stability, and have to mention how stylish they are. I love the quick lace feature and the ability to hide the locking mechanism.

Props to @Bill Porreca for recommending these as they were my first "real" pair of trail runners.

Okay trail runner

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

I am 48 year old - weight 140lbs - wider foot - who logs in 3 trail runs a week averaging 6 miles in the wasatch mountains. I have also used these shoes to run trails in Moab and St. George areas. The shoe fits well, comfortable and has good grip. The sole is too soft for my preference, I can feel the pressure of rocks on my feet. It also causes my heel to roll during runs, which will prevent me from purchasing another pair. To note I have a pair of the Salmon XA Pro 3 D that I have used for 3 years that I have the same ankle roll issue. Always thought it was me and not the shoe. After running in the Scarpa Spark I realized there is a much better choice of shoe for me. Notice a huge difference.

Awesome!

Awesome!

I'm already excited to burn holes in these so I can order another pair... Well, time to go running!!!!!!

King of TRAIL RUNNING!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I got these in a size 10.5 and am normally between a U.S. mens size 10.5-11 and they fit perfectly. The lacing system is unique and these shoes hold up to some serious punishment.

They have amazing and durable tread to get a person through some rugged terrain and I, like many other peers on this website have found, "MY SHOES!"

They are super comfortable and provide a vibrant running platform. I have gone on really long and hardcore trail runs and have no discomfort or "hot spots" afterwards.

I will buy many pairs of these in the future!

Narrow toe box

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I was very excited to get this shoe and to have the Salomon lacing system. IT works great on my skate ski boots and wanted this convenience in my hiking shoe. Bought this shoe to use while backpacking. Out of the box this shoe felt comfortable but while hiking developed blisters behind my second ray (despite frequent stops and changing out socks at lunch time). After second hike in Oregon Cascades these are going to Goodwill. (would have returned but past 30 day return time) The toe box is too narrow for my averaged width foot. I have never had this problem before. Going back to my Brook Cascadia's!

I found MY shoe

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

i have run up and down the most technical trails in the spanish pirinees with these shoes, run through snow patches in the summer near summits, run through glaciers, hiked up the highest peaks in the pirinees (Monte Perdido, Aneto, Taillon) and wore these shoes when everyone was wearing boots... No swelling, blisters or smelly feet! I am a forefoot runner and these worked great. Excellent traction but when I busted some of the rubber blocks on the sides and in the forefoot and i thought i was going to loose all traction.... but the rubber itself is so sticky i could put in some more alpine runs in them! Also very light and the do not feel bulky. Only flaw, they do not wick out the sweat too good but they do dry off fairly quickly when you take them off, but even though, they are the best shoes i have ever tried and i do not want to try anymore!
