Customer Reviews

Comments: Bought these for OCR's. Trained in them for 1 month and used for 1 race. They are excellent for traction in the mud and trails, but started to come apart after mile 7 or so. Very disappointed....

Comments: I wore a previous version of the speedcross that used goretex instead of climashield and I loved them. I used them in mud, snow and rain and my feet stayed dry. I expected climashield to be similar but they are worthless. Very dissapointing. I won't be buying shoes with climashield anymore so probably wont be buying salomons.
