I've only been running trails just under a year now and had been using my road shoes. I looked hard and came across the speedcross and couldn't pass up the deal (Thanks, BackCountry!). Luckily, thus far I cant imagine running in anything else. They provide the stability, traction, and control I need. I overpronate, but since I'm running on uneven surfaces, the neutral stance of the shoes provides enough control any affects I may have are minimal.
Pros: stable, great traction, great cushioning, cool color (bright yellow), good lateral support, laces cinch up well...still have to tighten at times--but no complaints yet, the removable insoles make cleaning the shoe a breeze...and help air out with a breeze, and good fit--I have 11.5, and tend to be a 11 and then some, and have worn as big as a 12 in my Mizuno's, but these offer plenty of room and good fit, and my toes don't slide forward...that's a good thing (got tired of blue-toes).
Cons: yellow gets really dirty quickly, the sole plate is not super-protective (but likely the way the shoe stays light and flexible over all terrain). I have run with them along side of train tracks where you run on the large gray gravel, and unless you stay forward or on the balls of your feet when you run your okay, but if you fall back on your heels the large rocks can strike you in the mid-foot, the lack of strength in the mid-foot can make you wince a little. All said, stay forward...better agility this way as well. The only other thing is these do not have any water-resistance (which I didn't expect since I didn't get the 3CS's), so know your feet will get damp if you hit the water or early morning run with wet grass.
Overall, I'm super impressed and looking forward to trying these out on a race one day...that's the goal. Thanks BC!
The past two spring/summer/fall seasons this shoe has been my only shoe for multi day self-supported fast treks in the back country with a 20 lbs. pack.
The shoe fits very well and wears very well as I have had no blisters even when the shoe has become wet during stream crossings or many miles in the rain.
The shoe dries quickly and is very easy to keep clean.
The shoe is very tough and has suffered no damage from the New England granite and Pennsylvania iron stone.
Traction on soft pack, sand, grass and mud is excellent.
Grip on rock surfaces and boulders is excellent.
Shedding mud as one continues to trek is excellent.
I have worn many soft shoes over my trekking history and this shoe has been the best performer of them all.
I have found that the sole's thickness will allow you to feel sharp rocks but as long as I limit pack weight to less than 25 lbs. and use trekking poles I have had no issue with bruising or pain from wearing such a lite shoe while trekking.
It was pointed out to me by other trekkers that the Speedcross 3 was very narrow and would probably be less stable on the trail. I have found that being narrow allows the shoe to provide much less sidewise leverage should the heel or ball land off center on a small object and that a very light increase in pressure on the opposite pole completely stops the ankle twist. I can move through boulder gardens much faster with this shoe than others who are wearing traditional hiking shoes.
