Salomon SpeedCross 4 Trail Running Shoe - Men's Reviews

Long gone are the days spent ambling cautiously over rocky trails. Thanks to the Salomon Men's Speecross 4 Trail Running Shoe, you're able to confidently run through tough terrain of all kinds without having to slow down your stride. The Speedcross features a breathable mesh upper with hardy fabric overlays for torsional support, while the DWR treatment and mud guard prevent puddles and light precipitation from saturating your socks.

Salomon's SensiFit upper offers a snug sock-like fit, which means you can say goodbye to hot spots and chafing caused by ill-fitting shoes. The QuickLace system provides a speedy and secure alternative to the traditional lacing system, and the low-profile lace pocket enables you to stash excess drawcord so you don't trip over a drawcord mid-sprint. An Ortholite footbed and dual-density EVA midsole assure shock attenuation and a responsive, energetic feel underfoot. Not to mention, a recently updated Contagrip outsole provides unrivaled traction and stability on scree, mud, and just about everything in-between.

A must for trail runners!

Tried a couple trial running shoes, but these are easily my go-to pair for trail running on any terrain! Stylish shoes with great grip. The SpeedCross 4 have a comfortable fit and are very light weight, essential features for hiking long routes as well.

On the downside, the grip tends to break off easily over a short period of time, so don’t look for a pair to last longer than a year depending on the amount of mileage you put on them. Im still not a fan of the lace-lock system, but it beats having to tie your shoes ever so often with normal laces. Overall, a great buy if you find a pair on sale under $100.


I own 5 pairs of speedcross shoes and not only wear them for trail running and hiking but daily use as well. For trail running they are the best I’ve ever found. With a light pack they replace my hiking boots every time. The light weight combined with the amazing grip and comfort of the insoles they are literally unbeatable. Get the ones with goretex built in and you add the waterproof factor as well. Highly recommend.

SpeedCross 4 Trail running shoe review

By far the best pair of trail running shoes I have used. Very tough material, and strong tread allows for the toughest of terrain.

Where this might be a little over dramatic, when my last pair arrived in the mail I hopped on the Gram and posted the following.
“I’ve been told that you don’t really know what love is until you have kids of your own. Really 🤷🏼‍♂️??? Have you ever opened up a box of @salomonrunning shoes & just basked in the wonderfulness while your heart filled with love & joy? Then the amazing bond that forms when you put them on for the first time #incredible“
In all seriousness I love these shoes. I’m actually wearing a pair of the blue ones right now. I’ve picked up a couple pairs of these and have a pair dedicated to trail running as well as a pair for everyday use. I even wear them when I compete in USPSA competitions. The gripping on them is amazing providing great stability during movement and the quick lace system makes for an easy on and off. Every once in awhile they‘ll catch on carpet or squick loudly on linoleum floors giving away my postions. They can be a bit pricey but I’ve found if I shop around online I’ll catch a smokin deal. Running, adventuring or everday use these have become my go to shoes.
