I have run consistently in Salomon XA Pro's since their introduction a decade or so ago. I normally run trails and recently decided that I should probably look for more appropriate footwear, as I tend to run more strenuous, treacherous trails than the XA s are really meant for: I wanted the added stability and confidence in step! I tried out both the Speedcross 3 and also the new Fellraisers. After playing with them both, I have decided on the Speedcross 3 over the Fellraisers. Here's my take and experience with them. I have what would be termed a Low-Volume foot I guess? Normal length, a bit narrow and just not that bulky. I have loved the XA Pros since I put them on, they were the best-fitting shoe I had ever worn bar-none. When I began trail running it was the occasional jaunt up some random hills, and the XA's were more up to the task than any other shoe I'd worn before! However, recently I have begun running more, and the old guys were showing their shortcomings as I have hit more technical trails. Also, as I got more technical, I had to start cinching them down more and more. I also went down a half-size to stop my foot from sliding forward on steep declines. I also started doubling up on socks! I bought and tried both the Fellraisers and Speedcross side-by-side. For my style of foot, the Speedcross reigns supreme for fitment. At a 10.5, I have more room to cinch down than the 10.5 XA Pros, and that's wearing my skinny socks compared to my thick running socks on the XAs! Comparatively, the Fellraisers needed an extra half-size to accommodate length; I was wearing a size 11 to avoid bashing my toes. However, they were not as snug everywhere else as the Speedcross 3: too much wiggle room at my heel and my toes. So if you have a narrow foot, Speedcross. If you have a wider foot, fellraisers may feel better (and add a half-size). The Fellraisers were not as strong in the lateral stability department either. They tended to want to roll my ankle pretty bad compared to the Speedcross. The Speedcross felt very stable, even considering they have a higher heel/toe ratio than the Fells and very similar tread design. After deciding on which was going to get the nod for trail duty, I set out to put the Speedcross through the paces! As I type this I have put down over 30 miles in them: a warmup 3 miler, a couple 5 s, and most recently a 20-mile run/hike. Grip-wise these things cannot be beat. They outclass my XAs so bad it s not funny. Places before I would have been slipping and sliding these things don't budge. And it's not that they feel drastically different or like they're going to break your ankles with grip, it's simply that they dig in and give you confidence in mucky terrain without much fanfare or thought. I had one small hotspot/blister on my left heel after my 20-mile trip which shouldn't be an issue more than once in my experience. other than that, these things are like wearing your feet, they are just so comfortable on the trails it's not funny. The tread is very grippy, the rubber itself is very soft. These are at home and definitely made for the trails, not the pavement. They feel very awkward on hard terrain like that, and I imagine the soft rubber will wear down quickly. While the fellraisers and speedcross have very similar tread patterns, I gotta give the nod to the fells. The rubber is a bit stiffer so it s less likely to tear and wear off, and the chevrons themselves seem a bit more aggressive than the Speeds sort of the evolution of the pattern! The toe on the Speedcross is a bit narrow but I did not find that I felt crowded at all. They look from the top down that they'd be a little laterally unstable compared to the XAs or Fells but that was not my experience. While I'd love to see the chevron pattern updated on the Speeds to match the new Fellraisers, overall I must say these are the my new favorite shoes. Period.

Fantastic shoes! Ready to run right out of the box, comfy, grippy as hell, hi-tech laces work great, and they look good too.

Seemed a bit narrow at first, but comfortable after a day or two. Prefer the tight fit for trail running. Really like them!

These are trail shoes, but I got them for running on snow. At first they seemed like a tight fit, but once I figured out that I needed to pull the tongue up, they were comfortable, if slightly snugger than my regular running shoes. I run in them only when there's snow but little or no ice; they provide excellent traction in those conditions (for ice I use slip-on spikes on my normal shoes). My longest run on them, 7K (4.5 miles), was comfortable. I've only used them a handful of times but they have been great on those occasions. My other running shoes are also neutral and, as with other athletic shoes, I got this a half size larger than my street shoes to allow for thicker socks and my feet swelling during a run.

This is my second pair of Soloman Speedcross 3s. I hike about 30 miles per week up and down hills on everything from fire roads to rocky single track pitches. The shoes are very comfortable. No break in time required. They are light weight and provide great traction until you wear down the sole. Which brings me to the only negative; the lug pattern on the sole wears down before the shoe wears out. If you log a lot of miles on rough abrasive ground you may turn them into slicks pretty quickly. Soloman needs to add more lugs to the bottom.
