The Autumn/Winter 2012 version of Speedcross 3 running shoe combines lightweight upper with an anti-debris mesh upper and aggressive tread for comfort and grip on wet, sloppy trail conditions. There has been a few changes made to the Speedcross 3. 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, thus reducing the chances of twisting ankle. 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. A few more improvements has been made to these athlete's favorite, the Speedcross 3 gets a new bonded Sensifit construction, more durability in the sole, and lower heel for more stability. Water shield protection just over the tongue and toes provides water resistance without sacrificing breathability. It is a light, fast, racing shoe used by many Salomon team athletes.

I love the laces! They are quick and easy to use and there is a little pocket in the top of the tongue to put them in so they aren't bouncing around, which I love not having to weave them under the crossed laces or into the side of my shoe. See my pictures, no weaving class before purchase necessary. :)
This shoe is very nice looking. The loud colors put me off for a while, but I was surprised at just how good this shoe looks on. It doesn't make me look pigeon toed or like I am always standing in 1st position. I have received many compliments already. I couldn't find these locally, so most people to comment on them had not even heard of the brand, but thought they were super nice looking. (jealous much)
The actual quality of this shoe seems to be a 10. No weird, dried glue oozing out from anywhere and the sewn seams are all perfect. No loose strings sticking out. I will revise this review if I find the quality anything less than stellar. For now, I am impressed.
Ok, the real truth on sizing. Do not expect to wear your regular size. Use Salomon's guide for getting the correct size. If you aren't feeling like measuring your feet and cross checking on their chart, Order AT LEAST ½ a size smaller than what you normally wear. All the reviews stating the same are completely correct. I usually wear between an 8.5 and a 9 in running shoes. I ordered an 8 and still have wiggle room for my toes. THESE run BIG. I would hate for you to order and return these great shoes because of the fit.
So, wrapping this up, they look awesome, they feel good on, love the laces (no weaving class needed,) support is on point, grip on the trails is fan-freaking-tastic, THEY RUN BIG and would 100% be my zombie apocalypse choice of footwear.
The one thing I don't like is with the pull-cord laces, there is a ton of extra, so you have to wrap it around the loop on the tongue of the shoe, which is annoying. If you don't, you can end up stepping on it.
This shoe doesn't perform as well as the last Salomon one I owned, but since I can no longer purchase it, this will be my go-to until they decide to stop making this one ;)
I have only had them for a week but they were super comfy right out of the box. I have been walking everywhere in these. They are very lightweight compared to my hiking shoes. They are not waterproof, though, so my feet got a little wet walking in the rain today. They do come in a version that is waterproof for a little more money. I am perfectly happy with these, though, since I just wanted a lightweight summer shoe that I can use with lightweight hiking socks. I should note that I wear a women's size 6.5 normally, and I have a narrow heal and a wide foot at the top with high arches. Very difficult to fit. I find that the Salomon brand works better for me than anything else I've tried, and these shoes in a 6 are perfect. The only thing you may want to know is that these are shipped from the UK, which I didn't realize until after I ordered them. Although the shipping is free with Prime, they took quite a while to get here, so order early if you want them for the summer.
