This shoe was exactly what I needed. It has excellent traction, weight and heel/toe height difference. I ran only once until now, it was a moderate 25k trail run. Usually it's advised to break in the shoes with multiple short runs but I had an irresistible opportunity to use them with style. :) I have few critics though, the lacing system is less practical than XA Pro 3D Ultra. It should be asymmetrical like XAs 2- The outer and midsoles are durable but very elastic, more then necessary I would say! If you step on a rock with a 3-6 cm. of diameter, it may hurt your foot with a huge bump it creates inside the shoe. I weight 86 kg., maybe lighter people doesn't feel the same thing. Everything else is perfect, I am very heppy with it so far. The only strong alternative may be the Peregrine of Saucony, but in harsh conditions SC3 may outperform Peregrine. On the otherhand, I have several friends and serious trail runners, who are very satisfied with Peregrines.

This a very light and comfortable shoe as long as conditions are dry. As soon as water is added the the mix, the shoe becomes heavy, uncomfortable, and slippery regardless of the aggressive knobs on the sole. Speaking of which, except for the knobs, the sole is completely treadless. I ran a warrior dash in these shoes and they were unbearable - I slipped and fell twice in a creek bed. When running up a dry mountain, the shoes perform incredibly. Stay away from water. If you are running a MOB race, wear the Adidas Kanadias.

Salomon shoes have really caught my attention. I am the owner of 12 pairs now and proud of it! The fit and quality of these shoes is unmatched for their intended use and purpose. I use them for trail running and hiking. The Speedcross 3 that I am specifically addressing in this review offers good fit in the heel and toe box and arch support is moderate. Cushioning in the shoe is very good to excellent. The speed lacing system works very well and the lace tuck away in the tongue is a great concept. I've purchased three pairs of Speedcross 3's, one in black, one yellow and black, and one blue, orange and black. Salomon. All good!

Just finished Tough Mudder So Cal #1 2013. Temperature was 43-50 degrees all day. Poured rain the night before, so course was muddy. These were definitely the best shoes on the course. I killed it on the mud hills (walked right up) and made it to the top of Everest first try. These shoes are amazing for mud runs. They grip the hills going up and down like velcro.

Bought these shoes to run tough mudder in and they were fantastic. While other people were struggling up and down hills and mud slides, I was running right up them. After a good washing off with a hose they look almost new. They are a little stiffer after after being submerged in mud, but they are by no means ruined and are still good to run in. Insoles are still a little muddy though. In fact I loved them so much I am going to buy another pair, going to keep my first pair for outdoor events like tough mudder and a second pair to train and trail run in. Their construction it top quality!

I've had these for about a month now. I mostly run the trails along the Wasatch Front (BST, Millcreek Canyon, etc.) and Speedcross 3 has become my go-to trail shoe. With a lot of sharp rock and slippery dirt, these shoes protect well and each step plants solid even on those bomb-it-downhill finishes (e.g. Rattlesnake Gulch). I also wore them on a few early season, snowy ultra-light day summits (e.g. Deseret Peak) and found them surprisingly comfortable even when wet. I have size 13 yet narrow feet and I'd prefer if they'd fit a tiny bit tighter, but overall another excellent trail shoe from Salomon.

These are amazing shoes! I had first bought a pair of INOV-8 MUDROC 290, assuming they would be great, the first pair the heel just dug into my foot so I called and they sent me another pair over night. The second pair was the same, so again I had to call and the customer service is amazing and I was treated so well, they got me lined up with these Salomon Speedcross3 and I am so happy, the most comfortable shoes that I have worn. I reccomend them to anyone!

These shoes are awesome! I bought them for hiking on rocky and dry dirt terrain while I go Hang Gliding. These shoes are very comfortable, look awesome, and have great thick tread. The laces are fast and tuck away inside the tab. Thanks Zappos for the great shoes.

I bought these a couple weeks ago and couldn't be happier with how they perform. This is my first pair of Salomons and I was fearful I would roll my ankle not being used to them, couldn't be further from the truth. Super light, supportive, and soft outsole. Meant only for the trail.

Sized perfectly, but it is a very, very narrow shoe. I am not a runner, but also do not require a wider-width shoe. Style-wise, very cool! Very comfortable heel and toe. Width at toe pad is great, but width at the arch is going to take some breaking in.

To the point. Pros: Great looking shoe. Superb cushioning (I am rather a thick boned dude), great grip on rocky and sandy trails (haven't tried mud...yet), lightweight. And, again...great looks! Cons: lacks stability, particularly on the toe box area. Wore them today for the first time and almost twisted my left ankle twice when stepping on medium sized rocks. It's their first ride and the left shoe front end is already debonding from the shoe! (I wish I could upload a picture.) Let's see how long they'll last. Not sturdy enough for my taste.

No lie. I went with my wife on a trip to the Grand Canyon and in typical form I left my hiking shoes at home. Fortunately for me there was a shop at the Grand Canyon that sold these shoes. Anyone will tell you that the last thing you want to do is break in a new pair of hiking shoes during a lengthy hike. These shoes were amazing. They were extremely comfortable, and gave me no blisters during the break-in period. In fact there was no break-in period. I owe these shoes a lot.

I bought these for a Tough Mudder race and they worked beautifully. Great traction in mud, comfortable when wet, and supportive when climbing rocky terrain. Lace system kept the shoes secure at all times. I rinsed them with a hose after the race, threw them in the washing machine, and let them air dry. Good as new.

I have enjoyed these shoes greatly. 50 miles of flat land aggressive terrain in and they don't look or feel aged at all. Snug fit and of course the excellent lace system. Lightweight for how much support and tread there is. Solid footbed keeps the rocks and limbs at bay too.

This is the second pair of Speedcross 3's I have owned. I use them mainly for doing cross-fit type workouts....Lots of burpees, mountain climbers, push ups, planks. My feet never slip!!! My first pair survived 3 Tough Mudders and countless trail runs. I am sure this new pair will not disappoint.

Seems like a nice trail sneaker, I got mine for everyday use so don't know how long the treads will hold up. The arch support could be a little better, but all in all still a good comfortable sneaker. More info could be given on the laces of how to make them expand to get your foot into the shoe and not feel like your going to break the lace, tightening them was fine from the instructions attached, but if you do break the lace there are places that do sell a kit online other then that all is well.

First pair of Salomons and I am hooked!!! These shoes are everything everyone says. I will be honest I did not want to believe these shoes were as great as everyone says. I finally gave in and orders through Zappos who is always the best way to order anything. Shoes came with lightning delivery. The minute I slipped them on I knew they were the real deal. Wore them for a mile trail run to break them in. No need to break in, they felt like slippers instantly. I will for sure being ordering more colors!

I have very high arches and somewhat narrow feet, so I'm always a littler nervous when changing any athletic shoe. I purchased these having owned several pairs of Salomon in the past and was very satisfied to find that these has the build quality I've come to expect with the added benefit of being a pretty light shoe. When I first tried them on they felt a little over padded, but once I tightened the quick lace system the uppers of the shoe comfortably wrapped around my foot and the padding compressed nicely. Like normal, the lacing system holds well once tightened and neatly stores away in the small pouch provided at the tongue. I wore these for about 30 minutes around the house, and then after that my first outing was a 12 mile hike across the knife edge at Mount Katahdin in Maine. The shoes held up well, provided great traction, didn't give me blisters, and felt like the breathed well. My feet actually felt less sore than normal at the end of the day which was a pleasant surprise. All in all I've been very please thus far. My only issue is that the support at the back of the heel feels like it would get crushed easily, which means I have to be more careful when putting the shoe on. If you use a shoe-horn you shouldn't have any issues, but if your anything like me and you just use your finger then I would advise making sure your heel is all the way down before removing your finger from the back of the shoe. At one point I just held the bottom of the shoe and slipped my foot in, but I could feel something at the back of the heel had slipped. I took the shoe off and low and behold there was a small budge. I just pushed it back flat and it hasn't been an issue since, but still something worth noting.
