|The average trail-running shoes are either racers or trainers. My lightweight SpeedCross 2 succeeds at being both: Large shock-absorbing rubber outsole lugs make up for the thin midsole cushioning. With the shoe’s soft-flexing and a low-to-the-ground profile, it clings to all types of terrain.|
The Salomon Speedcross 2 shoes use a mesh upper that cinches tight through the midfoot by a one-pull lacing system. They fit narrow at the heel cup providing a solid wraparound firmness from first foot strike to lift. The shoes give you the feel and traction of a climbing shoe when scrambling over small boulders.
A dense but breathable rip-stop like upper helps make the shoes light and nimble but not flimsy and unstable. The Salomon Speedcross 2 is a solid choice for most runners that like to get out on even the worst days and get in a run.
