For full disclosure – the Salomon Speedcross 3 Trail Running is the fourth pair we bought. We are happy with our shoes and bought them now in different colours.
We wanted some great sneakers that can handle rougher conditions such as mud, rocks and such quickly and use for hiking. As a result, we found the Speedcross 3 provides the ultimate grip in all situations.
The addition of a Gore-Tex upper is a bonus in muddy conditions. The upper keeps out a lot of the damp and wet that you might find on off-road runs.
The shoe is light and features a super precise fit. We love the shoe’s lacing system. The upper part is of a very lightweight material that breathes well. The Salomon has a fantastic grip on dirt even in wet conditions.
We know that looks shouldn’t matter, but these shoes look aggressive, are bright and beautiful. The collections include lots of fantastic colours.
If you want a pair of durable, affordable, comfortable and just good looking trail shoes, go for the Salomon Speedcross.
Pros: Great all-terrain sneakers, awesome hiking shoes, aggressive design
Cons: Addiction – after the first pair you start to buy them in different colours.
