Thank you for your feedback.
The quick laces are nice, and very easy to use when dry, but I found that they get caked up pretty easily with mud.
So the pros of this shoe are:
* Light weight
* The tie less shoe strings are great, beats any slip ons.
Overall, I like these shoes enough to purchase 6 pairs of them, mainly for the fit and function.

Product Description

The Salomon Speedcross 3 Trail Running Shoe combines a lightweight, anti-debris mesh upper with an aggressively appointed outsole tread for an equal blend of comfort and grip in wet, sloppy trail conditions. The forefoot has been reduced by up to 50 percent, meaning that the wearer's foot is lower to the ground and therefore more likely to gain a better purchase, thereby reducing the chances of twisting the ankle. The heel is also wider across the sole area, creating a greater contact surface which is altogether more stable. In addition, the Quicklace slider has been reduced in size, as has the 'garage' pocket, meaning that weight is significantly reduced and stowage is more compact. Other modifications to this iteration include a bonded Sensifit construction, increased outsole durability and lower heel that all work in concert to accommodate a more robust, stable ride. Water shield protection across the tongue and toe sections provide excellent water resistance without sacrificing breathability.

When your off-road trek takes you even further off the beaten path, Salomon's Speedcross 3 is there to carry you through. Lightweight construction meets the aggressive tread of the Mud and Snow Contagrip sole for a premium blend of performance and fit. The Quicklace system gets you suited up lickity split so you hit the ground running and never look back.

    I loved the look and design of these shoes so I read the buyer reviews. I wanted these for casual street wear but the reviews were mostly from hard core trail runners, mudders and other people who can probably kick a grizzly bear's ass. Since I had no intention of running the Paris-Dakar Rally on foot I wasn't sure if these weren't "too much" shoe for me. I mean, look at that action figure lacing system, and my tires have less aggressive tread than this shoe, the little colored words on the sides made me think of sponsor labels on a top fuel dragster. I began to wonder if I was worthy of this shoe. Would real athletes call me out as an imposter? A Poser? Would normal people look at my feet and assume I was a dork? (really, my shoes are the least likely cause of this).
    So, still feeling inadequate for these shoes I placed my order. They arrived 3 days later (probably ran half of the trip on their own) and I got them out and tried them on.
    Ugh. Too tight! But only at first. After ten minutes they loosened to a snug fit. After two days they fit perfect. No kidding - perfect. I love the feel of them. They are comfortable as all get out. I almost climbed a hill in them just for the joy of it.
    They feel like they will last forever. It's almost like they are bulletproof. In fact, if a thug ever shoots me I hope he aims for my feet. I'm confident these shoes will protect me.
    The lace system seems odd at first but after a few times I figured it out so I can do it without taking my eyes off the TV. It's tricky at first but if that thug tries to take them off of you he will be stymied by the lace system long enough for you to run away up a nearby mountain... another plus.
    The style is fantastic. So many people like my feet now.

    Bought these for the Tough Mudder in Beaver Creek, CO.

    Worth every penny. Never slipped, even on very muddy hills. These even had very reasonable tread/grip on the snow obstacles. The laces hold tight, the shoes produced no blisters, they didn't hold very much water or mud and therefore didn't noticeably increase in weight after they were wet. I typically wear a size 12 and there was no variance in these shoes - my typical size fit perfectly. I really can't think of anything remotely bad to say about these shoes.

    Would definitely recommend these shoes for Tough Mudder.

    Also, many people throw their shoes away at the end of the race.. I think these have multiple runs of Tough Mudder left in them!

    Update: March, 2013:

    Been wearing these shoes for a pick-up flag football game. They work great there too. Playing on dry, winter-grass I see a lot of other players sliding around wearing regular football cleats, but these work great.

    Update Feb, 2014:

    Shoes finally kicked the bucket. These were brand new for Tough Mudder in June, 2012 and performed well. Since then I've been playing football, year round, in Colorado with them on natural turf. I see a lot of other players using football cleats, complaining about their feet hurting, getting blisters etc. My feet are never an issue. I never have to tie these shoes mid-game. Wore them in 4" of snow yesterday and I don't think there's any shoe besides a metal ice-spike that might help in that situation. These do not repel water, but they don't hold much either. (Salomon makes a water-proof version, these are not.) It was 25 degrees and snowing and my feet were warm, even though wet, with a thin pair of socks.

    Mixed feelings... i beat these shoes to hell in less than 3 months...several of the most critical lugs have torn off from the soles. Amazing traction, but I do not recommend them for anything but trail running. the lugs will tear off the bottom of the shoes if you use these for steep ascents on variable surfaces. I live in Phoenix and my primary playground is camelback. Again amazing traction, fast and light, but be prepared for these to not last very long.

    Me (45 yrs old) and my wife (40 yrs old) have gotten involved in running Tough Mudders Obstacle Courses a few years back. The first one that we ran was in 2013. The Pittsburgh/Ohio Valley Tough Mudder. Distance 13 Miles. # of Obstacles: 18. It was wicked because the course was laid out over mountainous terrain. It was some of the most gnarly terrain that I have ever attempted. Honestly, it was actually the very first obstacle course that I ever attended! Because of that I neglected to research a good trail mud shoe for the event and opted to wear my Nike ACG boots (bad idea). Good traction but after the first muddy water barbed wire low crawl obstacle they weighed about 10lbs each. I ended up having calf and arch related issues as a result.

    For the next event I bought me and my wife a pair of the Salomon Speed Cross 3's. This made all the difference in the world. The next event was the WNY Tough Mudder 2014. Distance 10.5 Miles. # of Obstacles: 15. The terrain was much more flat but had its moments. The Salomon Speedcross 3's did the job nicely. The challenges of the terrain was much less threatening because of the thoughtful choice of footwear this time around. It made such a big difference engaging obstacles with these great shoes.

    The latest course that I attended was the Tough Mudder Ohio 2015. Distance 10.5 Miles. # of Obstacles: 17. Favorite Obstacle: King of the Swing (action shot added)! The Ohio Tough Mudder Course was laid out across the Lexington Motor Speed way and surrounding lightly hilly terrain. Again, our Salomon Speed Cross 3 trail shoes didn't disappoint. They held up to the riggers of the course (Water, Mud, Obstacles), while draining well.
