Perfect shoes! Great traction, good arch support, very warm, cool looking, and best of all no messing with shoe laces, just slip on. Very comfortable and worth the money.

These are hands down the best pair of running shoes that I have ever purchased. This is my third pair of this brand to be exact. The quality cannot even come close with other brands. The design is sleek and there is no need to buy insoles as they are quality and so very comfortable. I love these shoes and will continue to buy them in the future. These run true to size.

Wow, these are amazing! I have narrow feet and dread looking for shoes. I have been reading reviews for hiking shoes online for weeks trying to find a good fit for me. I also wanted an attractive shoe that I felt pretty in since I would be wearing it around for causal wear on my vacation. I decided to try these after reading such good reviews. They are the most comfortable running shoe I have ever worn! The tread is also very very good. The quick laces took some getting used to but I think I will really like them. I might treat myself to the blue or green pair next. I plan on wearing them on a trip to Alaska and using them for my trail runs. A fabulous find! I purchased a 9 and usually wear a 9.5 in running shoes. Dress shoe size 8.

Love these shoes! So stylish, super lightweight, comfortable and fits great. I hike, run, spend all day in them and my feet don't feel tired at all. I am usually very picky about my shoes, and after reading the others reviews, I decided to purchase Salomons, no regrets, they are excellent. After seeing my pair, my husband also, ordered Men Salomons for himself. Zappos, is great as always, super fast shipping!

Shoes are warm, comfortable and good soles for running in the snow. The shoes are very heavy though, so if you are looking for something light these are not it. They are also wider than I like.

These shoes are great. They were comfortable straight out of the box-like walking on a cloud. There was virtually no "break in" period, and my feet were happy hiking or trail running from the moment I slipped them on. I've wanted a minimalist shoe for quite some time, but can't seem to find one that still offers a bit of support until this one. I've you're putting any serious mileage on these shoes you will see that the tread wears quickly. Much more so than I would have expected. Salomon's customer service was great, though, and sent a new pair my way. These shoes are worth the money, and I would purchase this brand again in a heartbeat.

These shoes are fantastic! I was worried that they would hurt my feet as I typically wear a wider athletic shoe, but contrary to what some of the reviews say I did not find them to be too thin. I typically wear a 7.5, but ended up ordering a 7 and they fit perfect. I am amazed at how "cushy" they feel, whether I'm standing on rocks or flat concrete. And after 5-7 hours on a shooting range my feet aren't absolutely screaming as they have been when wearing traditional cleats. I'll be buying a pair of the CS Speedcross for winter!

These shoes are amazing! I decided to purchase them after reading the other reviews. I went on a trail run with my husband and I felt like I was holding these shoes back! They fit like a glove and the traction is insane! I felt much more secure during the technical parts and did not worry about slipping. When we got home my husband got online and ordered his own pair! He now is in love with them, too! They are everything that people are saying and more! Stop reading and order these! You won't regret it! I ordered an 8.5, they fit great! I normally order a 9 in a road running shoe but I like the extra room for street running. For the trail the 8.5 just felt secure. Great shoes!

I bought this shoe two weeks ago at a store called Treadz in Glendwood springs colorado and couldnt believe how light they were. I tried them on and couldnt believe how comfortable they were. I wore them out of the store. I plan on buying another pair as a spare.

I purchased these shoes for running snowy, icy winter roads, but with a mild winter haven't used them for this. The tread is fantastic for trail running, and hiking for the person who is uncomfortable in a stiff shoe. These were comfortable the moment I put them on. First day out took them on 7 rugged miles of muddy, rocky, early spring terrain and escaped with no pain, blisters, dry, warm feet. Couldn't ask for a better shoe. These are my first Salomons and I was nervous about the lacing system, but they stay as tight as I need them. Not too comfortable for road running as there is little cushion on the ball of the foot, but overall I say these shoes are worth every penny for any outdoorsy, active individual.

Amazing fit for a narrow foot and super comfortable! I ordered a 9 and I usually wear a 9.5 in running shoes and 8 in dress shoes. I have not had a chance to try them out on the trails but I am very impressed thus far. I purchased the green though the pink/purple color is very pretty as well. It was hard to choose but I liked the green because of the darker sole. I will be hiking in these in Alaska this summer, can't wait!

Zappos shipping is unbelievably fast. I ordered at 8pm and had my shoes by 1:45 the following afternoon. These shoes are so comfortable and worth every penny. I wanted a shoe that had more traction for snow and more warmth than most of the shoes that are out now with mesh. I have Nike AirMax and thought that those were the most comfortable shoes until I got these. Very, very comfortable. I have wide feet and a very high instep and these feel great. Worth every penny.

I have several pairs of Solomon sneakers. All run about one size larger than I'd usually buy. I really appreciate the lightness of this shoe. The color (purple) is really sharp and I've gotten numerous compliments. I am an avid road runner, but I would not wear these sneakers running because they are too rugged for the street.

I have bought lots of shoes from Zappos, but this is the first time that I feel compelled to write a review. These are the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn! They are great for hiking, walking, or just around town. I will definitely get another pair.

This is my second pair of Salomon Speedcross 3's. These trail shoes are so yummy, they are like orgasms for the feet. I don't use these for trail running or Cross fit like most reviewers though. These puppies are reserved for Survey Walking, a challenging hybrid between a leisurely real estate stroll and a Steeple Chase. For reference, I'm a 5'6" MILF, 34-34-36 with D cups and the Speedcross gives me a stable ride throughout my workout with just enough bounce to keep the construction workers gawking. I took the new ones out for a test drive last week with my boyfriend, who made the mistake of wearing Adidas court shoes. And while the Adidas kept him in Lock Step with me during the first leg of our workout, anyone familiar with Survey Walks knows that hidden dangers lurk around every corner. After stopping to take pictures of a new listing on Pequot Trail--a gorgeous 6/6.5 Greek Revival with massive columns and a wraparound veranda that would make Vivian Leigh blush, we ran into trouble rounding the corner onto Westway, where they were doing tree work. There were probably six or seven guys there, one in the basket of a cherry picker, one driving the rig, and the other four standing around chatting, smoking cigarettes and trying to appear occupied. I was able to navigate around the falling limbs and leaves without a hitch in my Speedcross 3s, but my bf got pelted by debris from the wood chipper and lost not only time but style points. Then the unthinkable happened. Actually, this has happened to me once before on a Survey Walk in Oklahoma, but no one in the history of Survey Walking has ever had this happen TWICE--a HUGE SINKHOLE opened up under our feet. Thanks to the super aggressive tread on my Salomon Speedcross 3s, I was able to climb out before the sink hole swallowed me up, but my boyfriend and his Adidas court shoes were not so lucky. And while I'll miss my bf, I'm super stoked to take these babies out on another Survey Walk challenge next week.

Great looking shoe. Runs a whole size too big. I wear a true 5 and this shoe swam on me. I am betting it would be a great running shoe and would be comfortable if it fit! They don't make them smaller...too bad!

I've been looking for shoes to run trails, after reading the reviews here I purchased these. Love them! I ordered them yesterday morning, ran 3 miles in them tonight. As usual Zappos magically has my shoes at my front door the day after I order them. My other running shoes are 10's, I purchased these 1/2 size smaller after reading reviews, sizing was right on. My first pair of Salomon shoes, but won't be my last. Very comfortable!

These shoes have awesome grip on loose ground way better than any other trail shoe I have had. They are a comfortable fit but in my opinion and that of my husband who owns a pair - they need a little more cushion in the front of the shoe for comfort if you want to wear them for an hour or more.

Great for trail running and hiking. I just did a 14er in these. I would say the only downfall is that they do not always stay tight and that can hurt your ankle but its fixed with a retighten!

Oh, my gosh, I LOVE this shoe! To begin with, my feet are very hard to fit, but these shoes fit perfectly right out of the box! I wear a size 11 and have a medium width foot with a somewhat narrow heel. I have gone to running stores and specialty foot stores to be "professionally fit" for a good athletic shoe, but have never ended up with a good quality shoe that fit. Nike and New Balance are usually my best bet in terms of fit. I typically have to order a 12 in an athletic shoe for my size 11 feet, but size 11s and 12s seem to vary so much and are often uncomfortable, too big, or too small in one spot or another. Not these Salomon's! They fit perfectly and are oh, so comfortable! I read the other reviews prior to ordering and chose NOT to order a size up. I wear an 11 and I ordered an 11, and they're perfect. They're very breathable. They are somehow water repellant, though they look and feel like mesh. They are super cushiony and comfy while walking, jogging, and hiking. I have worn them all day long with total comfort. They are super grippy on most surfaces, but I've also found them to be more slippery than my standard-bottomed running shoes an wet, smooth-surfaced sidewalks. I love the colors (I got the aqua), and I love the look. They don't look like boats on my big feet. Yay! I love the easy "laces!" These shoes are great! I highly recommend them!
