Salomon created the SpeedCross 3 Trail Running Shoe for women who can't stand to run on the pavement when they race on foot. Comprised of lightweight uppers and a flexible midsole and outsole, this shoe offers ample protection from hazards on the trail and an aggressive design that helps you move fast. Slide your foot inside and you'll immediately fall in love with the contoured and supportive fit, and just a single pull of the QuickLace tab tightens the laces and locks your foot in place. Running on the trail means that you're bound to encounter some sloppiness, so Salomon gave this shoe water-resistant textile, a mud guard, and large, traction-happy lugs.
Salomon divides its running shoes into a number of different collections: the XS for speed in all conditions, the XR for performance training, and the XT for all-terrain running. This shoe, the SpeedCross 3, belongs to the XS collection, which makes it ideal for blazing through tough terrain from late spring to early fall. Runners who want even more weather protection than this shoe offers might prefer the Speedcross 3 CS, which comes with a waterproof breathable membrane in the forefoot to keep your foot dry when you're faced with rain, mud, and the like.
The Salomon Speedcross 3 Trail Running Shoes - are an updated version of the iconic, light weight, agressive profile, trail racing shoe. This shoe weighs in at a low 9.91 oz (7US).
Salomon's Speedcross 3 CS Trail Running Shoe belongs on muddy singletracks and wintery trails covered with snow and slush. Made with a lightweight mesh nylon uppers that resists water and dries quickly, these breathable kickers have have a waterproof membrane in the forefoot to block out puddles, while the rear is membrane-free to allow your foot to expel moisture. Aggressive tread and comfortable EVA midsoles and OrthoLite liners make them race-ready.

This are the running shoes for me! Prior to their release, I swore by the XT Wing Goretex, but the low volume fit of the Speedcross was a revelation for my feet in running. I'm breaking in my second pair, and going into my second season of running exclusively in these shoes and have yet to get a blister. Last year, I focused on training for my first long(er) distance/ vertical gain trail race (17 miles, 4,000 ft elevation gain). My training never suffered due to sore, chaffed, or bloody feet. I didn't even loose a toenail, which is a first for me in running shoes. They are also incredible lightweight, and the tread is bomber, whether you are on loose, dry slopes or running through sloppy mud. The quick lace system is still one of my favorites, I've never had to worry about tripping over an untied lace. I would also give these shoes a gold star for durability, after the first season my original pair are still holding up well, with no visible signs of break down to the sole or to the canvas. I only bought a new pair because the green/pink combo was calling my name!
I've had these shoes for over a year, and I love them. I bought them for hiking in the Wasatch range, and have put a lot of miles into them. No complaints whatsoever. They're light, grippy, comfortable, and durable. They were comfortable from day 1 and are equally as comfortable now. I was worried the wimpy looking laces might break, but they haven't.
My only caution would be to not make them your street shoes... the tread on the bottom is really soft and grippy, so pavement strips them pretty quickly. That said, I'll definitely be buying another pair.
I normally size up to a 9.5 for running shoes, but I bought these in a 9 (my street shoe size) and they fit.
I've been having heel pains for over 6 months. My doctor told me to find shoes with higher backheel and better arch support. I tried several different pairs of running shoes and none really helped very much. Then I came across these babies. I must admit the purple color was what drew my eyes to them. Once I read up on its features, I decided to to give them a try. After walking around in them for 1 week, my heel pain is 80% gone. All the nice compliments I got was a bonus. I only wish I can still get the Purple color ones...
These are the only shoes I wear now for everyday walking around. Thank goodness I found them!
I have had Salomon running shoes in the past and I liked them well enough, but I tried a couple of different brands over the last couple of years. I am a trail runner only...never on the roads. The Salomon SpeedCross 3 Trail is the only shoe I will wear! I run trails that are super narrow, steep and rocky and these shoes make it happen! My last pair were Asics Trail and I ended up with my first shin splints EVER and I have been running for 20 years. The stability, traction and overall comfort make me want to buy another pair to put away in case they change! Absolutely love them!!
Speedcross 3's are the best! I have this version in purple (love the color options!) and a Climashield version in black. Wear the same size in both and couldn't be happier with the fit. Great arch support, comfortable all around. Like magic, these shoes even keep out beach sand. Another reviewer claims these are waterproof, I say they're not - which is why I have a Climashield version, also. I run in these several times a week and have never had a blister or foot complaints (something I used to have a lot of). Try them, you won't be disappointed!
I bought these before going on a camping trip and was so happy I did! These shoes are great for light hiking and for going through water. I bought them in purple and got tons of compliments on them. Ran true to size for me. I also thought these were great for airport traveling since they were so easy to take on and off when going through security. Highly recommend these shoes!
I love these shoes. There was no break in period, I just put them on and it was on. They are so comfortable and light and the grips on the bottom are like no other shoe that I've owned. I also wear them hiking and Mountain biking when I don't want to use clipless pedals. The grip on the bottom is like no other.
So upset. Spent good money and after 3 miles up and down hills with lose rock sand and gravel major blisters. Killed my race time. Website should offer money or exchange for better fit. J think they are half size too big. Going back to don't order Nike size... Order regular size if you are a runner.
I ordered these shoes because I really like the bright colors, and I was looking for a lightweight trail shoe for hiking and running. I frequently hike on very rocky, steep trails, so I wanted something light but still sturdy, and these sounded like they would work well. When they arrived, I knew that they were way too big-- I had ordered a size 6 (the smallest size available on this website) and it felt 1/2 size too big. I usually wear a 6 1/2 in ordinary shoes, but my size in hiking footwear is really hard to pin down-- my backpacking boots are 5 1/2, but my old Vasque trail running shoes (slightly too large) are size 7! Anyway, I think these run a FULL size too large. Also, I tried them briefly and thought they might be a bit too light and soft on the sole for the very rocky hiking I often do. So they had to go back and I found a slightly tougher Salomon shoe (the Ellipse Aero) in size 5 1/2 elsewhere-- and that size fits well.
I really loved this shoe, and felt it was made for Utah's trails. It grips well, was very light, but after about mile 4 my feet would feel so scrunched up it was painful to go much more than 5. I happen to have a wide foot, but still thought I'd give these a try. Every time it was the same thing. If you have a normal-width foot definitely buy these! They just didn't work for me, unfortunately! The size fit pretty true, but again it's not the length with my feet, just the width. Bummer. On to the next trail shoe...
