Salomon Womens Speedcross 3 Trail Running Shoe Review

I was wearing my Scarpas shopping at Natural Grocer and a gentleman commented that I may want to try Salomon and La Sportiva. I looked them up, found the model I would most like to try by checking out the description:

The Salomon Speedcross 3 Trail Running Shoe combines lightweight feel and stability to provide a comfortable running experience. Utilizing Salomon's Sensifit construction, this rugged trail racer features a low heel, water-resistant mesh upper, and tough mud and snow Contagrip outsole for enhanced performance in wet and muddy conditions.

At a Glance:

    Water-resistant mesh upper reduces moisture buildup
    Sensifit promotes smooth motion
    OrthoLite foam footbed reduces friction
    Rugged mud and snow Contagrip outsole for cold, wet conditions
    Quicklace system for fast, secure lacing

Ooooo, Sensifit and Contragrip. Sounds high-tech. I clicked Add to Cart and they showed up 2 days later (thank you Amazon Prime). I've been wearing these for over a month and they are most excellent trail shoes. Good grip on the rocks, unique lacing situation (this is the first time I had to watch a YouTube video on how to lace my trail shoes) and the laces hold tight, great fit for my long feet and skinny toes. I did buy 1/2 size larger than my normal size, a tip I've been told over and over again from the hiking experts. Here's a link to the quick YouTube video I watched for the lacing tips:

I like how the lacing system gives you distributed looseness and tightness when you need it as your foot flexes and climbs (Sensifit?). I highly recommend these for you other trail addicts out there. And I know you're out there cause I see you on the trail every day 🌄👀💖
