An iconic dirt-racing shoe in a colorway exclusive to Backcountry.com.

Backcountry.com teamed up with Salomon to bring you the Men's Speedcross 3 Trail Running Shoe in an exclusive, one-of-a-kind colorway. This shoe is a demon of dirt racing, and there's little about it that isn't designed specifically for speed, traction, and agility. From the aggressive profile to the stable, lightweight chassis, this limited edition shoe will carry you far beyond the pavement and onto the podium.

  • 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

Solid shoe, not that exclusive

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

The shoe is clearly at home on high alpine singletrack. Just snagged a pair while in Austria and let the loose on some trails. They rip. solid platform, and plenty of heel to make decending fun again. Only thing I can think of is the colorway I purchased is the same as the bc.com exclusive... Dirty Austrians

These shoes were great. But did not last

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These were excellent shoes. Good grip and support. However, I wore them out in a month. No tread left, and that is all that keeps your feet from felling sharp rocks in the trail. Unless you have 100 bucks to spend on shoes every month, don't buy these. If you do, go for it! They were awesome for a month!

Aaron, Back Country has a 100% return policy. If your not happy with your shoes call them and they will get you a new pair, worn out or not. I have used Back Country for years, they have always been awesome. I had a pair of Northface running shoes, didn't wear them because they hurt my feet. Back Country replaced them although I had not worn them for months. P.S. If your reading this Back Country people, you guys ROCK!

Hogman100...I am aware of the awesome return policy. However returning a pair of shoes that were not defective, but did not last is not back country's fault. If the shoes hurt my feet in the first week I would have returned them for sure. But I used them for the purpose they were designed, but they just wore out too fast for me. The attitude you have to return anything at anytime is exactly why REI stopped their 100 % guarantee policy, and changed it to a year. People should really be careful to not take advantage of such an amazing return policy.

but i didnt expect them to wear out so soon ...

I agree with victor, I ate through the tread on mine in just one month!

does this shoe have a good support for midfoot strikers or overpronators?

Responded on

This shoe is definitely great for midfoot strikers. I am definitely a midfoot striker and they feel great! The shoe as a whole has great support for those that overpronate, but if you are used to using a 3/4 length insert to support your arch I would definitely say it would be a good idea to stay with this process if it has been working, or to at least consider it if you haven't had it before.

The Speedcross 3 have been excellent on packed snow / snow-ice and melt conditions. Superior traction and agility. They help keep me running on trails even in the heart of winter.

4th pair of Salomon trail running shoes and the 2nd pair of SpeedCross 3s. Trained and raced in them and they are amazing. They have super tread, great support and a great lace system.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The best shoes I have ever worn, without a doubt! Very comfortable and excellent fitting. Unline other brands, if they get dirty you can just wash them with soap and water. The materials used are truly SUPERIOR and durable. After trying on these shoes, I have no reason to purchase any other brand. Fit and size is also perfect.
