    Stay light on your feet and move fast across rugged terrain on race day.

    Salomon created the SpeedCross 3 Trail Running Shoe for women who can't stand to run on the pavement when they race on foot. Comprised of lightweight uppers and a flexible midsole and outsole, this shoe offers ample protection from hazards on the trail and an aggressive design that helps you move fast. Slide your foot inside and you'll immediately fall in love with the contoured and supportive fit, and just a single pull of the QuickLace tab tightens the laces and locks your foot in place. Running on the trail means that you're bound to encounter some sloppiness, so Salomon gave this shoe water-resistant textile, a mud guard, and large, traction-happy lugs.

    Salomon divides its running shoes into a number of different collections: the XS for speed in all conditions, the XR for performance training, and the XT for all-terrain running. This shoe, the SpeedCross 3, belongs to the XS collection, which makes it ideal for blazing through tough terrain from late spring to early fall. Runners who want even more weather protection than this shoe offers might prefer the Speedcross 3 CS, which comes with a waterproof breathable membrane in the forefoot to keep your foot dry when you're faced with rain, mud, and the like.

    • Fit is optimized for the shape and size of a woman's foot
    • Upper is comprised of a combination of breathable mesh for comfort in hot weather and durable textile that's supportive and lightweight
    • Anti-debris mesh keeps dirt and sticks from finding their way to your toes, and rugged mud guards lend extra durability and protection
    • Feather construction and LT muscle chassis combine to create a stable platform that's also relatively light for the amount protection it offers
    • External Sensifit structure wraps from the top of the outsole to the top of the instep, locking the foot in place once your laces are tightened
    • Ortholite sockliner provides extra cushion and maximum comfort
    • Quicklace lacing system allows you to secure the laces and get a nice, even fit with just a pull of a single cord at the front; lace security tab tucks into a small pocket on top of the tongue so it won't flap around when you're on the move
    • 11mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) offers a more traditional running shoe feel and supports runners who naturally heelstrike (or prefer to) when running
    • Molded EVA midsole provides cushioning and shock absorption
    • Aggressive, non-marking Contragrip rubber treads help you keep traction on slippery surfaces

    Now we are a Salomon family

    • Size Bought: 9

    I bought these for my wife, so this is my review compiling her thoughts about the shoes. The bottom line is, she loves them, and she is running further and more comfortably than ever!
    She needed a dedicated neutral trail running shoe with good ankle support and not too low of a drop (to prevent achilles pain). These fit the description exactly. She has narrow feet and they fit her well and snugly - not sure if they would be good for wider feet. She tried on these and the climashield versions and found they fit differently, so be sure to try on the same shoe type you want to buy. With a tread as aggressive as these, just keep them on the trails where they are happiest and they will thank you for it with a long and grippy life!

    I am hooked!

    I already have a pair of Salomon Speedcross and I love them! They have excellent support for your foot, are lightweight and fashionable. I was looking for the Burdeaux color and you had them, which was great. Iam not much of a runner yet, at 55 years old, but plan of getting into that and these shoes feel like they would be great for that. Actually I am a ER nurse and am on my feet a lot and have been wearing these to work and at the end of the day my feet still feel great!
    I wear size 10 wide and these fit perfect, where most of the time I have to go a size up in other shoes due to my wide feet.

    Great shoes with great tread

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    These trails shoes look great, have some serious tread and are generally pretty comfy - especially on shorter runs.
    As mentioned in some of the other reviews, you can see the tread starting to wear, even after a few runs on pretty soft ground. But they grip so well I'm not too concerned if they don't last me quite as long as previous trail shoes.
    I need quite a lot of arch support and I find my feet get a little fatigued after a while, but I don't think this would be an issue for anyone who needs light - medium support.
    Overall, these are a brilliant shoe.

    this is what walking on a cloud is like!

    I finally bought a pair of Salomon's! My friend just bought his 18th pair. Everyone I know that owns a pair, raves about them! These shoes are popular for good reason! They are THE most comfy pair of shoes that have ever graced my feet. The tread is awesome and great for trail running. My friends swears they are the best for canyoneering!

    They run true to size!

    salomon killing it - once again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    I run the speedcross 3 for men myself. After my lady broke her old shoes simply in half because she runs like a frantic, she wanted to look into these and there is really nothing to say other than - wow! she thinks she has found her match for running and uses them practically all the time. Now i am trying to get her off of using them for every day business. damn it! so hard to tell her anything.

    great shoe - if anything she had to go a half size down from her regular shoe size.

    Dog walking shoes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 8.0

    These are pretty perfect for walking the dogs on the trails or just in the snow in general. The tread on these is pretty killer!



    Normally I have a wide foot so Salomon can be a bit slender, went up a half size and they really fit great.

    Will be getting a 2nd pair once I ruin the first ones.

    Dog walking shoes

    Not for long runs

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

    The shoe is excellent, the grip amazing, the look fantastic BUT if you are planning to run in this shoe for more than 2 hours, you may need to change the insole, plus you may need to wear good socks. When I run an 11 mile off road orienteering race in them, my feet soles were sore for a week.

    Push This Tread to the Limit!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.5

    This is my third pair of trail running shoes - I've been trying to learn what's best for me as I get into tougher runs on trails here in Utah. It's pretty rooty and rocky out here, and after busting my ankle running downhill, I knew I needed a much grippier tread. The ankle support on this shoe was a huge sell, but it took some getting used to after running in a more minimal shoe (Brooks' Pure Grit).

    The tread on these is like an off-road tire, and performs about as well - especially in mud. It really grips, and works best in looser dirt packs and rocks. Since the tread is so long, it does wear really quickly, even if you're careful to stay off pavement. I've learned that harder trails can definitely increase wear a lot more quickly than I'd like in a shoe like this, but I love them in the right terrain and I'll be keeping them for loose dirt, mud, and pebble situations. They are a BLAST on muddy trails. I feel like I can really rip downhill and in corners. I can't wait to see how they perform in light snow!

    Best trail shoes for mountain running

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10

    I've been a runner for 12 years now have just recently switch over to these sneakers. I put a lot of tough miles on these shoes and they hold up great. I've never had a pair of sneakers keep such traction in mud and snow and even rock. I've been using them while I train for an ultra trail run and they far exceed the other brands I've used in the past. I'd recomend them to anyone who is looking for a trail shoe with a little extra suport. I primary use these for trail runs on flat ground and up mountains. They are also great for summer and fall hikes.

    great feel out of the box

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave these as a gift to a friend for letting me crash at her spot for a while. I asked for some feedback after a couple of months and she was overall very pleased. Super comfortable out of the box and still feel great after a couple months of regular use. The tread is super soft and 'luggy' making for a great mud and soft ground shoe, but not that great for dry, rocky terrain, which she finds herself on frequently. If you do most of your trail running in a drier or desert climate, I'd suggest another option, like the XA Pro 3D from Salomon- http://www.backcountry.com/salomon-xa-pro-3d-trail-running-shoe-womens?rr=t

    Best Trail Shoes Ever

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

    I love these! I wear them everywhere and have never had one complaint! They have an awesome speed lace on them that makes them super easy to put on. I think for places like utah where there is a lot of hills and dirt that the sole is awesome and can dig in the ground deep so you don't slide around that much. I usually wear a size 6.5 shoe but got a size 7 to give myself a little room to run in so my food doesn't hit the top of the shoe ever.

    Great company, weird shoe

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

    Perhaps I am the only person who experienced this, but when I bought a pair of these shoes I immediately went for a run on a muddy trail. Instead of providing traction, the mud caked up on the bottom of my shoe. It was like walking on a slip and slide- I had to keep stopping to pick mud out from the bottom of my shoe with a stick, so I wouldn't slip and get hurt. Has this happened to anyone else? I use these shoes for mostly dry terrain now, since the grips work great on granite on other types of smooth rock. I love the Salomon company and the products they make, but these shoes were a major disappointment.

    probably the best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these as a gift for my girlfriend (at her request) and I'll just say that her feelings on them echo what most other people say. They are the best and she can't live without them. She had me buy her 2 pair just in case, in case what I don't know but we're set for a while in speedcross 3's

    Mud and Sand Beasts!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9

    These are great trail running shoes IF you are planning on running in muddy and/or sandy conditions. I run through a lot of river bottom trails that are often a mix of muddy terrain and sandy/muddy silt.



    They tear up slick slopes without sliding and really give you good pivoting on sandy trails. I have managed to shatter my cartilage in my left knee and so I need a shoe that can take a solid impact and give my knee some good cushion. I've looked at Hokas as well but these do a much better job for the type of running terrain I utilize. Some people have said they switch sizes throughout Salomon shoes, but I went true to size on these (I wear a size 9 in running shoes and hiking boots).



    I would not recommend using these on hard, compacted trails if you want the lugs to last longer than a few months. Look at some of the other shoes from Salomon(XA Pro, Wings Pro, Misson, Sense series) if you typically run on harder terrain. Their lugs are less likely to sheer off compared to the Speedcross lugs.



    One important feature that I see people asking in reviews: There is a little pocket on the top of the tongue of most Salomon shoes for you to tuck your laces and quick draw clasp up into while you are running!



    Mud and Sand Beasts!

    Love them

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought these shoes for their lightness and grip and was not disappointed. I used them for the first time on a trail shortly after it rained and felt very stable. Then I used them for a trail running event that turned into a mud run and was able to keep traction when others were slipping all over the place. I usually buy a size 10 running shoes, but ended up with a 9.5 in these.

    The only shoe I wear!

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

    These are by far my favorite running shoe!!! I trail run about 4-5 days a week and occasionally run a few on the road. I have terrible SI joint dysfunction and these are the only shoe I can comfortably wear for more than a few miles (walking or running). I have significant wear on the outside treads on my shoes after about 50-60 miles due to my stride ( I supinate) After about 150 miles I swap them out for my every day casual shoe and purchase a new pair for running. I am currently on my 3rd pair!

    Dumb question...haha. Do these stretch out at all? I usually wear an 8 or 8.5, I bought an 8 but they feel kind of narrow on one foot. Just wondered if they stretch or if I should get the 8.5?

    I'm a mid-foot striker, I pronate, have pretty bad ankles (prone to sprains), and am concerned about the 11mm drop since I'm transitioning from zero drop (Vibrams). How do you think these would fare for me? I'm looking for a warmer option for cold winter trail running. Thanks!

    Best Answer

    Jen,

    Personally I think the Salomon SpeedCross 3 Trail Running Shoe is an excellent winter trail shoe option.



    However, at 11mm that is a big leap from the zero-drop shoes you have been wearing. If it hasn't been that long since you wore a more traditional drop shoe you should be fine, but if you have been away for a long time I would suggest starting with something in the 5-9mm range.



    Some examples include The North Face Ultra Guide, the Saucony ProGrid Peregrine 3, or the Salomon XR Crossmax 2.
