Updates to Salomon Speedcross Pro

  • The Salomon Speedcross Pro features an enhanced outsole for reliable, all surface grip. It comes with an individually molded outsole with aggressive lugs for an enhanced ground contact. The outsole offers impressive performance on both soft and muddy surfaces.
  • Compared to the old versions of the Speedcross series, this shoe comes with an updated upper which is more durable. It has water-resistant mesh and protective tongue, making the shoe ideal for fall-winter trail running.

Salomon Speedcross Pro size and fit

The Speedcross Pro is available in standard running shoe size. The midfoot and heel area are of standard measurements and the forefoot is a bit narrow. This shoe can give impressive fit to those runners with medium foot size and narrow footed individual. Both men’s and women’s versions are available in regular widths.


Outsole

The outsole uses the Mud and Snow Non-marking ContraGrip technology that leaves no traces while running on the different terrains. The aggressive lugs are designed to survive on softer ground while delivering reliable traction.


Midsole

The shoe uses the full-length molded EVA that delivers excellent underfoot cushioning and anatomical support. This midsole foam attenuates shock during impact and delivers a springy feel for a more responsive ride. This works efficient with the lightweight muscle cushioning that helps absorbs impact during landing.


Upper

The upper coverage of the Salomon Speedcross Pro is made from anti-debris mesh material that offers adaptive fit and added support while keeping debris from entering the shoe. It is also waterproof in nature, keeping the foot cool and dry.

The SensiFit system hugs the foot securely that delivers a comfortable and precise fit while the EndoFit system provides an enhanced feedback and foot wrapping.

The shoe also features the Salomon’s notable quick-lacing system that works perfectly with the lace pockets, keeping the laces out of the way while running.
