Sure, dry steps for your race through shifty mountain weather.

As the rest of the racers get soggy and slow, you keep up your speed because you're wearing the lightweight Salomon Speedcross 3 Climashield Trail Running Shoes that grip the slick trail. Designed for racing over snowy or wet trails, this shoe features just enough cushioning and a waterproof breathable Climashield membrane to ensure the elements don't dampen your race pace.

  • Climashield membrane over the front portion of the tongue and shoe provide waterproof protection, while the normal breathable lining keeps your feet cool during mile six
  • 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
  • Lace garage stows your laces out of the way for a sleek profile
  • Ortholite footbed cradles your foot with shaped foam and an EVA heel cup for additional impact absorption
  • Lightweight Muscle chassis features two layers of EVA in the midsole to reduce the constant impact of running
  • Non-marking Mud & Snow ContaGrip rubber outsole delivers secure footing on mud, slick rock, and fresh snow

ive always run sportivas for distance and nb minimus for lighter. Thinking of making the switch to salomon, tho ive been interested in the Bushidos from Sportiva.. Any diehards out there who have run Sportiva and Salomon and can stack up a comparison??

Do these shoes have adequate protection for sharp rocky trails? I had the La Sportiva Helios and the forefoot protection was terrible on our local trails.

Responded on

Hey Grub,

These shoes provide mid-level protection and more than the Helios. My concern is more the outsole though as its more designed for mud and snow. If you are taking these should out on sharp rocky trails you will be sheering lugs off on each run.

Maybe take a look at these:

Worked extremely well

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

I purchased these specifically for a Spartan Race and was not disappointed. I ran with them a few times on dry surfaces and they were OK but not great.. Took them to Spartan and was impressed. Excellent traction on all terrain but they really shine on wet surfaces. Since there were several water crossings, there was no way to keep the water out completely but they drained well enough and my feet were comfortable the entire race.. I normally wear a 11.5 but ordered 11.5 & 12 so I would be sure to have the correct size in time for the event. I sent the 11.5 back. The 11.5 fit ok but after a bit of running my feet would swell and they would have been too tight. 12 was loose at first and then became perfect. As with any shoe, sock thickness can help with slight fit adjustments. The lacing system does take a little getting used to to get the proper tightness. The lugs on the bottom did not seem to retain the mud as other shoes I have worn so you are always running on the shoe and not a slippery layer of goo caked to the bottom..
Excellent for my intended usage.

Get them

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

I have the regular SpeedCross 3 and came across these on sale and bought these too. I like them for rainy days being that they are waterproof. Salomon product is always top notch and these are no exception.

Switched for the GTX version

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

These shoes are great. As others have mentioned, the grip is spectacular, the fit is snug, and the build quality is solid. I didn't find them overly hot on warm days, and they breathe reasonably well too. I live on Baffin Island so the tundra is the trail and I like the added stability and cushion, yet they're lighter and more responsive than my Salomon GTX Wings. The issue I have with these is that they're not waterproof. Half of it is the ClimaShield and the other half is a design flaw. The tongue is only sewn in at the base and the stretchy cover between the tongue and the laces doesn't do much to keep water out. If your toes get splashed, the water seeps in at the base of the tongue and you end up with a soggy foot. This is not the same as over-topping them (i.e. stepping in a creek up to your ankle). I'm talking about a design flaw like the Titanic. The whole shoe gets soaked if you dip your toes in. So I returned them for the Gore-Tex version which has the tongue (and the accompanying waterproof membrane ) stitched in all the way up to the top eyelet.

Bottom line: If you'll only need the weather protection on the odd run, these shoes are for you. If you want consistently dry feet, look elsewhere.
5 stars for fit and grip

Gore-Tex version of the Speedcross? I didn't think Salomon offered GTX in their trail shoe. Unless I'm misunderstanding your review. I'm looking for something grippy yet water/snow proof for the Colorado winters. Thx

Ninja style traction.

The Salomon / speedcross 3 Trail shoes could run you up a downspout if laced to the right feet.

Salomon Speed cross 3 green/clima shield

First look:
Color green-very bright for my taste but I do like them and after a few more runs on the trail they will be a true forest green color. So it gets s 4 because I have to do some of the coloring haha.

Great for a regular foot with a regular arch. Sole of shoes are great, firm but feel great on trails. On pavement you can almost feel the knobby bottoms but its not a big deal from the truck to trail just an observation. I wish I had bought a half size smaller, they fit good but a half size smaller may be better, but after a longer race the feet swell a touch so it may be no big deal.

Great form and function-running trails and steep hills in Germany with no issue. great traction and durable and no doubt they are a amazing off road shoe. Would recommend to all- easy on and off no issue with the lacing system or use! great!!!

How do these shoes breathe as compared the the original Speedcross 3?

Very good even with the Clima shield

Too Narrow/Not orthotic friendly.

These shoes look aweseome, and are built tough. Unfortunately the heel cup is narrow. If you need orthotics they probably won't fit in these shoes.

Light enough, grip that will make you want to run straight up a wet cedar, warm toes...these babies are the stuff

As advertised

I ordered the same size I have in XT Wings and XD Ultra Pro GTX and worked out just fine. Have used these on central Kentucky single track and has preformed great. This shoe is awesome for winter running conditions(cold and muddy). For me it is by far my favorite winter trail running shoe

Nice but narrow

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I have had other Salomon trail shoes but this one seems to be narrower in the toebox. As soon as I put them on I knew I had to send them back. Great construction, good agressive sole, but just too narrow.

The weight claims a 9.2oz figure; is this per shoe, or for the pair? 260g for a pair of trail runners seems extremely light. Almost too light.

Traction is the first thing you notice with this shoe, they shine on rocky single track and on turf. They provide a lot of stability for a neutral shoe and the front end surprisingly offers enough protection. These are definately for narrow feet and I sized up 0.5 a size from my other Salomon shoes. Only downside is the weight vs. a true race shoe, but then for the extra weight you do get a lot.

wore these on a 40 mile mountain trail run. didn't break 'em in & hit them hard right right out of the box. Very minimal wear on the tread which was amazing for the terrain!

If I wear an 11.5 in asic would I still be the same size in the speedcross 3.

Responded on

I originally order a size 11.5 but returned them for a size 11. They run slightly large, at least according to my feet. Hope that helps!
