Salomon Women’s Speedcross 3 GTX Trail Running Shoes – Salamon, the masters of trail runninig shoes

Love these new trainers, perfect for bootcamp on a very wet muddy field keeping my feet dry with good grip in the winter. They are quite a small fit for a size 5 though.

Great trail shoe but the tread wears down very quickly making them less suitable for fell running. I find salomon are best if you pronate (roll in or out) but as i’m more of a neutral runner i prefer inov8. The tread is rubbery which makes them great in mud but they wear off fast if you’re running on rock, leaving you with no traction when you hit wet grass or mud. Goretex keeps water in as well as out so i found they just kept my feet wet for longer.

Learned my lesson with salamon and ordered 11 even though i am 9. Fit perfectly and fantastic trainers and oh so dry – even in the deep snow on the fells last week.

  • I am really pleased with these trainers
  • Great trail shoe but the tread wears down very quickly
  • Really good shoes – recommended

No faults and it was delivered very quickly.

Really supportive fit but enough space in the toes to keep them comfortable whilst running. They are great to run in, deserving all the positive reviews they get.

They are a great gripping running she but i deffinatly would get the next soze up.

Nice and dry, excellent grip in very muddy conditions or on rocky surface, but a little narrower in the toe than i was expecting. Nothing too troubling, or anything that trying on wouldn’t have avoided :).

Done tough mudders in those shoes. Had no time to wear them before the event so was afraid they will hurt my feet. Feet were comfortable even wet or mudded all way long. They were easy to clean and you can’t see they were all mudded and heavily used. Now will use them for trial running and i am happy to have them.

High quaiity footwear,although they appear to be smaller fit than average. I really needed the next size up.

I’m a size 4 but after reading some reviews i got a size 4. They’re a snug fit but i like that for the purpose they serve. Extremely light weight but robust. The lace feature is pretty cool – saves time and no worries re tripping up and going your length.

Salomon speedcross are fantastic.

Like nothing i’ve ever tried before, great running shoes, wish all my other trainers were this good.

My normal shoe size is 6/39 but for these, i go up a half size to 6.

So far i’m really happy with my new trail trainers. Very impressed with the weight, virtually nothing. Bear in mind that you need to follow the general rule for sizing. 5 to 2 sizes bigger if you are going to do proper training and marathon running in them.

Fitting very tight and takes a while to break in, though the product is bang on and worth the money. Great support around ankles and lace pulls very effective and keep shoe tight around foot. Order a size either half or one size larger. Recommend this shoe you get what you pay for.

Brilliant shoe – very comfortable. I have got through a few pairs of these (both gortex and non-gortex). I tend to size up half a size on the gortex version because they are a little more rigid, and this translates to a quarter size less ‘give’ for me. If you have narrow feet size up half a size anyway – but i am a ‘b’ fitting and these are just perfect.

I have 5 pair of these runners. Comfortable, light no excellent grip in all sort of terrains. Great lace system that just works brilliantly. Only downside is that very soft sole tends to wear off very quickly after a while.

Bought these to replace non-gore-tex speedcross 3 (toe began to pinch) and they are fantastic. Beautiful fit, startling colour, and they really are waterproof, keep my feet dry.

As described, really pleased with them.

Lovely dry feet after exercising in a boggy field, very happy.

Was initially worried that the fit would be a bit narrow based on other reviews but after a few weeks wear, they now fit like a glove. Really love the quick close lace system too.

Doesnt get much better than this.

Love the colour and how they fit.

    Outsoule started tearing after a few weeks, but i was using them on asfalt among other surfaces. Having said that, in total lasted for 1 year when started to let water through the goretex membrane.

      I love these trail shoes they are comfortable waterproof and funky. Easy to clean all my mates ended up getting rid of theirs and buying these. I prefer them to my road shoe. Have not ran over 24 miles yet.

      I’ve only worn them a few times so perhaps this review is premature but so far i love themnot recommended for any road running as the spikes will wear down very quickly but for muddy trails they are perfect. So comfortable to wear and support me well so i can go faster downhill.

    I am really pleased with these trainers. They’re comfortable , with great stability and good grip. I’m sure they’ll be fantastic for winter weather too. My only concern is the fear that the laces and lace hoops won ‘t last long- they look too delicate for a trail shoe; we shall see, hopefully i’m worrying unnecessarily?they look fantastic too. I’m really happy i’ve bought the red ones.

        Firstly they seemed too tight but you just need to walk in them for few min in your house and they will become very very comfortable, they are my favorite most comfy pair of trainers.

      Great shoes, definitely waterproof and good grips. Was told they were a narrower fit than some shoes so order half size larger.

    Service and corospondaces were spot on ad will be back again. Well recommended as these shoes are so comfortable and perform outstanding. If you have wide feet make sure you get the mens version.

        Having been fell running for 30 odd years i never expected better grip than studded shoes. Its nice to have dry feet when running through shallow mud, not tried deep mud/peat but i don’t expect they will keep my feet dry for long. I have narrow feet so the fit is as good if not better than most running shoes. Not overly keep on speed lacing system but it has its plus points.

    First impressions quality shoe. Definitely go for a half size bigger as slim fit. Great cushioning for shock absorption on feet and legs.

      Beautiful trainer for trail running. Not ideal for the road as the grips will wear out too fast.
