Product Description

The Lady Speedcross 3 combines light-weight, performance fit and an aggressive outsole to create an off-road racing shoe that excels in the worst of conditions. Race-ready, amazingly comfortable, ultralight trail shoe with aggressive tread for grip on soft, slippery terrain. There has been many changes to Speedcross 3, differentiating it for the Speedcross 2. The forefoot has been reduced by up to 50 percent, meaning that you are lower to the ground and will hopefully gain a much more controlled ride. The heel is also wider on the sole area, giving a greater contact surface which is altogether more stable. In addition, the Quicklace slider has been reduced in size, and so is the 'garage' pocket, meaning that weight is down and the stowage is now more compact.

Climashield Upper for Cold and Wet Conditions

The Speedcross 3 CS features a mesh upper with waterproof Climashield lining for insulation when running in cold or wet conditions. The breathable mesh reduces heat and moisture inside your shoe while preventing debris from getting trapped between your foot and footbed.

Salomon's Sensifit technology cradles the upper instep, providing a precise and secure fit that promotes a natural rolling motion from heel to toe.

Mud and Snow Contagrip Outsole for Winter Weather

The Speedcross 3 CS's rugged mud and snow non-marking Contagrip outsole has a flexible chevron tread that improves grip on wet, muddy, or snowy trails. A mudguard runs along the base of shoe for protection against dampness.

OrthoLite Footbed Keeps Feet Comfortable

The OrthoLite footbed is designed with cushioning foam to reduce friction, keeping your feet comfortable as you run. EVA in the heel provides extra cushion for heel striking.

Quicklace System

The Speedcross 3 CS's minimalistic lacing system lets you tighten laces in one pull for a customized fit. A lace pocket keeps laces secure and out of your way.

    These are the best mud racing shoes we have owned. The video depicts a warrior dash race, the shoes as bought, and the shoes after cleaned. They do not get heavy during the race even after many wet and muddy obstacles. The tread also seems to shed mud instead of clinging to the bottom of the shoe. The only negative (a big negative in my case)I give this shoe is the OrthoLite insoles. When my shoes get wet inside and I run down a steep hill, the insoles bunch up. I had to replace the insoles with stiffer insoles to prevent it, or would have had to glue them to the shoe. This did not happen to my friend or brother, just me. They were running a lot slower though. I will buy this shoes again if I ever wear it out.

    i bought them for day hiking. First try was Clouds Rest in Yosemite on Saturday (13 miles and 3000 gain/loss). The 2nd time was two days later for a Whitney day hike (my first time hiking whitney, 22 miles and 6500 gain/loss). Talking about taking a risk.

    It took me a bit of adjusting to break the shoes in. Once i figured out what's comfortable, they are great. Nothing that creates discomfort. The bottom is legendary in grabbing onto dirt and scree, which was a BIG PLUS for Whitney.

    If your hiking terrain is steep, loose dirt, loose rocks/pebbles (scree/talus), or often wet from water fall or humidity, try these. They are not NOT slippery on wet rocks (got stream crossing during whitney) but with caution, they do ok.

    the sizing is a bit big. I usually go a half size up for hiking shoes, as this time, but they feel a bit too roomy, even after 16 hours on my feet. perhaps this one is a "true to size" hiking shoes.

    I was nervous about trying a new brand of running shoe (last time I stepped outside of my Asics comfort zone, I was pretty disappointed). But these shoes are fabulous! Comfortable fit, no blisters, and they fit my orthotics.

    The quarter-inch traction is great. Of course, if you're running in really icy conditions you're still going to have issues, but I don't really think there's any running shoe out there that can fix that. They perform great in snow and mud.

    The fact that they're water-proof is my favorite thing about them. After 14 miles in the snow and slush today, my feet were still dry and warm.

    Expensive, but they're totally worth it.

    I love this shoe! It was comfortable from day one when I put them on. I have suffered from plantar fasciitis and needed a shoe with good arch support in the right place and this shoe fulfilled that necessity. I work in a hospital setting and I'm on my feet most of the day. I get lots of compliments because they are stylish! Its more than just a good running shoe. I highly recommend the Salomon Women's Speedcross 3 CS running shoe!

    This is my second pair of Speed Cross 3's. I liked my first pair so well I decided to order a backup pair. I use these to hike up steep trails of mixed terain and the traction is amazing! I do find that they run about a 1/2 size large.

    I knew Salomon made great outdoor shoes and boots because I already had a pair of their hiking shoes. I wanted something more like a running shoe and more cushy, yet still waterproof, for an upcoming trip. I saw the speed cross online and decided to give it a try.

    My other Salomon hiking shoes were size 7, and I had plenty of room in the toes. So I ordered these in a 7 as well. What I didn't factor in was the fact that the toe box in these is much narrower and lower...like a running shoe. I usually go up a full size in my running shoes, so when I put the 7s on and my toe hit the end, I kind of had an "oh duh" moment. I'd recommend sizing these as you would a regular running shoe and NOT based on any other Salomon shoes or boots you may own.

    I ordered another pair in 7.5, and they were on sale for even less! The 7.5 fit like a glove. No toe mashing when I pushed off on my toes, yet still fit snug through my heel and mid foot. I have narrow heels but the quick lacing design on these allows me to tighten it so that I don't slip. The shoes have crazy good tread yet ride smoothly on hard surfaces. The insoles are very cushy, yet I wear special insoles with arch support in my running shoes so added those to these. They still fit great.

    I got the version with the climashield because they are nearly waterproof (according to the Salomon website). I will be able to wear these to workout, hike, trek around the city in the rain and snow, etc. A fantastic all purpose athletic shoe! My husband liked mine so much that he ordered a pair for himself. He plans to use for the same activities plus an upcoming tough mudder. He said they felt a bit narrower in the toe box than his street Asics, but not so much that he was uncomfortable.

    And now I don't have to pack both running shoes AND hiking shoes for trips! Bonus!

    These shoes are very comfortable and can take a beating. They are also reflective at night. The only con I would say they have is they don't seem to vent very well and can start to stink (moreso than anyother shoe I have owned) a quick remedy to this is to just pull out the inserts and let the shoe itself dry out, or rotate shoes every other day.
