Our View - Salomon Speedcross 4 Women:
Salomon have made a few updates to a long standing favourite in the Speedcross 4 with the biggest change being the outsole. The Speedcross now offers even greater levels of grip with the updated rubber and lug layout. The Speedcross 4 is ideal for muddy conditions as well as snow, bog, moorland, trail, grass and track and is amazingly comfortable for long distances. The shoes are lightweight and offer a secure hold thanks to the Sensifit™ construction of the upper and Salomon's Quicklace™ system.
The Light Weight Muscle chassis offers long lasting cushioning and comfort which makes them suitable for multiple distances. The anti-debris mesh and mud guard helps keep gravel and mud out whilst the water resistant textile of the shoe allows the Speedcross 4 to drain water freely and remain highly breathable.The Speedcross 4 is great for anyone wanting to move fast and light across a range of terrains and in a variety of weather conditions, ideal for the fells, hills, moors and long distance races.
On a personal basis I have used for The Yorkshire Three Peaks, Fellsman, Lake District, Dales and Lyke Wake and found them extremely comfortable, whether walking or running. Combine the Speedcross 4's with lightweight waterproof socks and anti-debris gaiters for added comfort and warmth over varied terrain to keep out small stones, plant fragments, mud and snow and if you prefer your feet to stay dry. However, if you hit a deep bog or have to cross any water beware of filling your waterproof socks
