Leave your mark.
The fluorescent, stringy wolfsbane waves you on with gentle enthusiasm as you dig in on the muddy, and the fire in your heart desires not the finish line, but the trail itself. Alone in your thoughts, you remember the infinite abyss of simply pushing forward—because after all it's just you, the sound of your beating heart, and the Salomon Women's Speedcross Pro Trail Running Shoe. Built for speedy traverses and quick descents, the Speedcross Pro maneuvers the trail with clean finesse and rugged dependability.
First and foremost, Salomon fine-tuned the Contagrip sole for traction on wet or dry surfaces, so you stay upright on the trail rather than snaking around it precariously like a fish out of water. The water-resistant upper sheds rainfall while anti-debris mesh ensures breathability in warmer weather. The seamless upper additionally features the Salomon-specific stable SensiFit straps and EndoFit smooth internal sleeve. The molded EVA sockliner, Lightweight Muscle midsole and Injected EVA ensure not only foamy comfort, but long-lasting support for those 50K sky running adventures. And to boot, the mud guard and toe cover prevent debris from sneaking its way through.

Can't beat them

My wife bought these shoes, here's her take: This is probably my billionth pair of Salomon trail runners. I've tried other brands, but it's tough to beat the grip, fit, and durability of this brand. I have yet to get these out on the trail and I expect a few days of tripping over the Contagrip sole until I get used to spanking new tread again. However, I am excited that there does not seem to be quite so much padding to the outer shoe as my speedcross 3's, which took forever to break in and felt like a ton of bricks when they got wet (they were still my go-to running shoe until retirement). I look forward to using these through the fall and winter seasons to see how the DWR coating holds up!

I absolutely love Salomons! These things fit perfectly right out of the box. Really comfortable. Absolutely phenomenal grip. On recent hikes I was able to breeze right on and over wet rocks without missing a step or slowing down. Leaves weren't an issue either. When a member of my hiking team was slipping on leaves and falling a couple times descending a steep trail covered in leaves, I had no issues. No discomfort was noted walking on pavement or boardwalk (though I haven't spent much time road walking in the sections I've done with these). I've had no toe or heel squish. Added note... if you're a toe basher like me, these are great! Extremely minimal impact from those rocks!
The only issue I have is pretty minor.... the pocket for the quicklace is awkward. You get your shoes on and laces tightened and then you notice the pocket is below the top of the lace. This is corrected with some minor adjustment. Since the shoes fit perfectly, offer great great and are very comfortable, I wouldn't deduct any points for that minor issue.
Highly recommend these!
