    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

    Soft, Muddy Trails Beware

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

    Take one of the pioneers in Alpine design and combine it with a passion for making some of the best running shoes and you get yourself a pair of shoes with an aggressive lug pattern meant to be as stable going uphill as they are down. The Salomon Speedcross 3 is a shoe designed to excel in mud and fresh snow. From the Contragrip sole to the water-resistant upper, this shoe keeps you going where ever the trail may take you.

    Lightweight and comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    I was recently given a pair as a gift because I like to go trail running with my dog. Other then taking the dog out I didn't really like trail running, but then again I was using running shoes that I bought at the thrift store. Ever since I received these shoes running has become an extreme pleasure for me and I take gratification in longer runs with my pup. I typically wear a size 11 skate shoe (vans) and snowboard boot but i was given a size 10.5 which was on the tight side when I first wore it, but it has broken in well and now fits like a glove. I will say it has a narrow fit, and when I slip it on I can't help but feel an urge that I need to start moving and it puts a pep in my step since it has a low impact sole and extra traction. So far I've only used the shoe in snowy conditions, and it's upper is not waterproof but it definitely gets the job done .

    Great for comfort!

    Love the fit and ease of putting these on with the adjustable lacings. Overall a great shoe although with wear they can slip on wet or oily smooth surfaces so use caution until you know how they react.

    Lamborghini's for your feet

      These shoes are awesome. I have been wearing a bunch of other brands and have been fairly happy but once I put these on I was sold. They are super comfortable and really durable. I like the closure system. It is super easy and simple but holds well and gives great control. You would be crazy to second guess yourself on these shoes.

      Best shoes

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 10.5

      One of the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on. Absolutely no break-in period. I think part of the comfort is due to the massive lugs. They seem to cushion each step due to their size. They dig into the dirt and don't let go, giving me awesome traction in the back country whether I'm taking a run or donning a pack. Again, super comfy. Great buy. Have since bought them for 3 other people in my family, and it helped resolve my fathers plantar fasciitis.

      Great shoes

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 12

      I love the shoes this is the second pair I have. They run true to size but are more narrow than most shoes which for me was great because I have a narrow foot the first shoe that actually fit me The way it was supposed to LOL. I had heard they require no breaking and I found that to be true first day out hiked 5 miles of beautiful trails here in the Ozark mountains of Arkansas. I love the speed lace system snugs down tight becomes part of your foot. They dry quickly and give you traction like a mountain goat . These are the best pair of shoes I've ever owned for hiking and walking . I was like a lot of people worried about the small laces but after doing some searching online they are made of a Kevlar material so they're not going anywhere . I have heard others report that they wear out quickly if you wear them for every day use or on hard surfaces because of the soft soles but they are designed like a dirtbike tire as long as you use them in the proper setting they will hold up great . I'm very happy with my purchase and plan on buying other salmon products in the future

       Great shoes

      Comfy but slippery

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 12.5

      Very comfortable and obviously very light. Have only had them a few days and still in the process of breaking them in so I haven't been able to get on trail yet. One thing I have noticed though, as another reviewer mentioned, is that they are EXTREMELY slippery on wet, smooth surfaces (so far just concrete) unlike any type of running shoe, water shoe, or sandal I've ever had. Hopefully they'll be better on wet rocks but I'm a bit skeptical about it considering that they're like ice skates on the sidewalk. Since the tread is like a dirt bike tire I'm sure they'll be excellent in dirt, sand, small loose rock, etc., but if there are sections of larger smooth rock that are wet it could be a little treacherous, especially if you're running/racing in them. Also, I usually wear an 11.5 and occasionally a 12 and needed a 12.5 in these, and they're on the narrow side but seem okay for my D width and will prob spread out a little with usage.

      Love these shoes!

      • Size Bought: 11

      If you want traction, easy clean up and fast break in time this is the shoe for you. I have a pair for every day, hiking then trail running.
      A few things I was a little worried about.
      -Low cut, ankle support. But the shoes get such great traction I don't have ankle roll like other shoes that slip around.
      -small laces. They look weak. But as of yet (4 pair) I have never had one break.
      They dry fast, don't stain. ( black or camo)
      I have yet to have a defect or have them come apart. The treat is soft so if you run on a track or blacktop they will wear really fast.
      They do run narrow but I like that.
      Iv noticed I get alot more traction than most when doing mud runs....
      I don't think you will be disappointed!

      Badass Shoe!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      I wasn't planning on spending the money for these shoes... however, glad I did because they are so rad! I hardly ever rate anything a 5 star and these have done just that. I upsized by half a size and it was a perfect call. First day I worn them I hiked 10+ miles through sand and stone (Arches) with no issues other than a little cramp in the ball of my foot towards the end of my last hike. Get these, you will not be sorry!

      one of my fav's

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I have done a fair amount of hiking and trail running on these and would put them in the top of my favorite trail shoes. The sole is pretty aggresive and grippy and were great for a run/scramble we recently did over some bouldery areas. The fit was right on with what I wear in most shoes. I give the speedcross 3 a thumbs up.

      Great shoe with limited lifespan

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

      I love the grip, feel and flexibility of this shoe. The tread makes for great running on any trail. Ran 2 5K's in muddy wet conditions with no slips. The tread however does not last forever even if you only run off-road. I logged just over 53 miles and probably 50 more that I haven't and I'd say I have about 20% tread left. That being said I still love these shoes and they still step great.

      In a nutshell. 100+ miles, all in the dirt, 20% tread left.

      Great shoe with limited lifespan

      A shoe that wont stop..until you do

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 10.5

      These shoes fit true to size..but kinda stretch a touch after a while.. I bought these as a replacement to my normal running shoes while I was in El Paso / Fort Bliss. Can't Beat the Grip these shoes provide on sandy / dirt trails around the base. The shoes provided more cushion that I was used to, but that's not a bad thing. the quick lace system never failed on me or broke at any time and they are still going strong. the only negative I can say is don't run on pavement / roads. The sole wore out kinda fast when I did have to run on those surfaces.

      Great for trail running

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

      Great shoes for running & hiking in loose dirt, mud, rocks, scree, talus, etc. These have a lot of padding around the ankle, great upper stability, and surprisingly good proprioceptive feedback/ground feel. I will definitely repurchase when these wear out.

      Minor complaints:

      1) They run slightly small, mostly because the toe box is narrow. I rarely wear socks with these and all my toes make contact. They'd definitely run noticeably small with thick socks.

      2) Not the most breathable shoe.

      3) The rubber soles are far too soft for daily wear around urban environments... clearly they aren't made for that, however.

      Great lightweight offroad shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 46 Euro

      These are great lightweight offroad running shoes - which is exactly what they're built for. I've run and hiked in them through muddy and slippery conditions and they have been great.
      They do have a lightweight sole and I have noticed that I get sore feet if running/ walking over particularly rocky terrain as these dont have the same level of protection underfoot as say the heavier XA Pro's - but they are a lot heavier.
      I will definitely buy another pair of these shoes in the future.

      Looking for a good winter trail runner, running on snow most of the time. Is this a good option?

      Best Answer

      If you are running through wet sloppy snow I would recommend the GTX version of this shoe. I have had good luck with these guys in the winter time in New England. Good luck!

      Do you make the Speed Cross 3 Trail in a wide series. My brother likes my size 11 but he needs a wider shoe.

      Best Answer

      Hey there,

      These come in a "D" or Medium width.

      All of our shoes will be offered in medium width unless otherwise specified in the drop down menu. I checked Salomon's website and it appears that they do not make a wide for this model. They do make a waterproof version with "Climashield Technology" but nothing for the folks with wider feet.

      Do these shoes hold water or does the water...

      Do these shoes hold water or does the water flow out of them pretty good. I run lots of mud run where myt feet are totally submerged. Just looking for something that doesnt hold water. thank you

      I am running a tough mudder as well in November. This will be my first time trying out the speedcross 3. I am not sure if they will hold water but I can tell you water is the least of your problems. Worry more about rocks getting in. I wore very airy shoes with good drainage on my first mudder. It acted like a fish net, water mud goes in, then drains out leaving dozens of tiny rocks to run on. I heard on some other forums the speedcross really kept the rocks out.

      I've had these shoes through 2 Tough Mudders and a Hardcore Mudrun. I coupled them with a pair of Inov-8 Debrisgaiters. I couldn't be happier. You will get fine silt in these shoes, you will with any shoe after going through enough puddles and mud holes but you don't notice that until it's time to clean them. The debrisgaiters do a great job of keeping those small little pebbles out of your shoe. The shoes seem to basically wring themselves out after running a short distance; you can look down and see the water pumping out of the toe area as you run. Throw a pair of good socks into the mix and you've got the makings of a great mud run. Check back often. Backcountry periodically runs great sales on these shoes. I picked up my second pair for around $62



      The shoe comes from Backcountry with an unconditional lifetime warranty. You can return it in any condition at any time for any reason for a full refund. As to buying it, products can only bought online or at their warehouse in Salt Lake City, but shipping is fast and free. If you buy it at a local store, the warranty won't apply and you'll only have the 1-year manufacturer warranty.

      Was wondering how the will do on moraine surface?
      Especially the if the rubber "hooks" on sole will get cut by rocks?

      Thank you.

      how does it handle in snow and wet conditions?...

      how does it handle in snow and wet conditions? is my foot going to be wet at the end of the day?

      These are perfect for snow/mud conditions, with really deep and aggressive outsole lugs, and decent water shedding abilities with the mud guard and such. However, if you're looking for your feet to be completely dry, go with the Climashield version of this shoe. Climashield is not like Goretex. CS is highly water resistant but still highly breathable. I haven't actually run in a CS shoe so I cannot attest to its breathability in sandy desert or anything, but it is supposed to be better than Goretex for breathability.

      I ran through the entire winter season this past year in these, when there was snow on the ground and I needed the traction. Colorado snow is fluffy, so typically my feet don't get wet, at least not soaked through that bothered me - and a good pair of synthetic socks really helped too. Occasionally I can feel water coming in when crossing a melted stream of snow/water, but again good socks helped, and my feet were never soaked.

      I tried CS version in the store but opted the regular version - CS fits noticeably more narrow, and my feet were sweating even in the store.

      Traction-wise, these are probably the best shoes you can have on snow - I didn't use my traction device at all in the season, and didn't slip and slide like my husband did in his various other shoes.

      Is the agressive sole durable, or just grippy?

      I've been using these as my normal everyday kicks for 3 months now and they are getting pretty worn. I haven't been running in them since I run on roads and hardpacked trails most of the time and have different shoes for that. But to answer your question, I would say they are very grippy. They are awesome if you are doing any sort of uphill racing in wet, messy conditions.
