SalomonSpeedcross 4 GTX Trail Running Shoe - Women's

Waterproof protection and unrivaled traction.

Whatever the weather, the Salomon Women's Speedcross 4 GTX Trail Running Shoe tackles muddy inclines and snowy descents alike. The Speedcross features a waterproof breathable Gore-Tex membrane that protects your foot from puddle splashes, rainfall, and all-around wetness. Salomon's SensiFit mesh upper offers a snug, sock-like fit to increase breathable ventilation and decrease chafing. The gusseted tongue provides additional assistance and further prevents sediment from sneaking its way into your sock. 

The infamous QuickLace system provides a speedy and secure way to crank down your shoes, and the discrete lace pocket enables you to stash excess cord, which means you don't have to worry about tripping over your own foot mid-run. An Ortholite footbed and dual-density EVA midsole assure shock attenuation and a responsive, energetic feel underfoot. The recently updated, multi-directional Contagrip outsole provides creme-de-la-creme traction and stability on all sorts of wet and wild terrain.

Best Winter Trail Running Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Let me start by saying you need this shoe if you’re one of those trail runners who isn’t afraid to venture out in the winter months for a good run. It’s THE go to winter trail running shoe for me. The Speedcross 4 GTX shoe is insane as far as performance and comfort goes. I had no issues running through the snow and thick slushy mud up Big Cottonwood Canyon. I had complete traction the whole time, even when I hit the steep parts of the trail. I couldn't feel any rocks I was running over, and had no pressure sores from the quick lace technology. The shoe kept my foot completely dry (THANKS GORE-TEX) and warm as a result. The 7.5 size I got is a perfect true to size fit for my foot. The shoe is also surprisingly light, which is perfect for those long endurance training days.

Grippy

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My wife got these to run around our hood, which isn't paved and is snow covered all winter, in addition to running trails. She says they're narrower than the x-mission but still fit well. They took a little getting used to as she said they felt stiff at first but they definitely grip and keep her feet dry as promised.

Comfy and Gortex does the trick!

My girlfriend started winter trail running this season and was having issues keeping her feet dry. I have worn the Solomon speedcross shoe for years and I love it, so I suggested she try a pair in store to see how they fit. She did and loved them, so we got her the Gortex version for the snow and slush. She reports they have been her most comfortable yet. She previously ran in Altras and Brooks Cascadias and felt these have by far been the most comfortable.

My go-to trail shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my fourth pair of Salomon Speedcross shoes, and I'm still totally stoked, They're comfortable and supportive, and the tread is perfect for slick trails. True to size, and the colors are fun and bright, I love that this model uses goretex so I can hit the trails when the weather isn't so hot.

These are by far one of the best pairs of shoes in my closet right now. When I initially took them out of the box, I was thrown off by how bulky they seemed, but that's because I am used to a super-duper minimus running shoe. Though they seem like a lot of shoe at first, they are still incredibly light and every time I throw them on, I never want to take them off. They run true to size. I have a narrow foot and they fit super well with adequate room in the toe box so that my toes don't smash up to the front during tricky sections on the trail. I especially love these when the seasons start to change and the trail is extra muddy; never once have my feet gotten wet. Other pros: extremely breathable, easy to clean, great grip on rocks and loose sections on the trail, also great for hiking/snowshoeing, and they last forever! Cons: I have yet to come up with any. Go Salomon! Get these!

I love these shoes! So comfy, great grip and GTX will keep your feet dry! I use them for dog agility, hiking and trail running. I have stepped in deep puddles and slush in these and they keep my feet dry every time.

I live in Maine and I was looking for a winter running shoe. This shoe is great. It is wind-proof and water-proof. It's been great on slushy winter runs...feet stay completely dry. They are a little stiff at first wearing, but they have gotten less so. I highly recommend.
