Great concept and the mud and snow claws work really…

Rating: rated 1.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: C$ 125

Summary

Great concept and the mud and snow claws work really well, but there is a major flaw. The inner sole is killing this shoe. If it gets wet (which it will in mud and snow) and you're pushing hard on the downhill sections you will find it slips all the way to the front of the shoe - Yes Ouch ... and then Rrrrr because you have to stop and take it off to flatten it out.

Pros

  • Great grip up hill.

Cons

  • Inner sole gets wet and bunches at the front of shoe.

I have run four 250km desert events and many 50/21 North Face and Dirty Feet races and the sole I assure you is not fit for purpose when wet and on the down hill sections.

Salomon Speedcross 3 CS Trail-Running Shoes for MenThe Salomon Speedcross 3 CS Trail-Running Shoes for Men are a great pair of shoes to enjoy your run in comfort. These shoes are lightweight, thanks to the two layer of EVA in the midsole, to help you improve your running ability. These shoes have a water-resistant upper that prevents water from seeping in, while the breathable lining circulates air to keep your feet dry and cool. Plus, the climashield membrane over the front portion of the tongue, also adds to the waterproofing effect. With a one-pull quick lace system, you are ensured that the shoes fit tightly around your feet, and are kept secured.
