Comments about Salomon Speedcross 3 Shoe - Men's:

I am on my third pair of these shoes, which I use exclusively for trail running. I run 25-35 miles per week and about 80% of that is on trails. However, I use the Speedcross exclusively on steep and/or slippery trails. I used them about 3-5 times per month.

These shoes have a very aggressive tread pattern, not dissimilar from aggressive mountain bike tire treads. If you are running on gently sloped dirt trails, this shoe is an overkill and a waste of money, especially as the high-grip sole lasts about 125 miles (6'1" /174 lbs) for me.

I have ran a mountain 1/2 marathon on them, but any longer distance would be uncomfortable as the cushioning is nowhere near my street and flat train shoe (Asics Gel Kayano 20).

Switching from an Adidas trail running shoe, I noticed a huge difference in the grip and therefore performance. On the ascent, especially on loose gravel, you get much better traction. However, the real improvement in performance comes in the downhill where you gain huge confidence and can push a lot more than you might with other shoes. You soon realize the shoes have amazing grip and you don't feel like your feel will slip out forward from under you. I have cut about 1:15 per mile on some slopes just because I can run a lot faster on the downhill. Also, on slippery (muddy) trails, I am able to add another 10-15% speed over my prior trail shoes. The level of confidence gained is akin to how you feel after you put snow chains on your car, after attempting to drive without them.

The shoes have been tested on granite and granite gravel in the Lake Tahoe area, and in coastal trails in Northern California, specifically GGNRA and at the Dipsea Race.

I would never run a trial race without these, and upgrade at 100 miles (even though they still have life in them at that point) and prior to a race. They break in easily after 5-10 miles.
