Salomon Speedcross 4
The Speedcross 4 is Salomon’s unique take on what seasoned trail runners need in a shoe. With exceptional traction and robust design, this is a running shoe that’s designed to conquer. It boasts of precision foothold and aggressive grip for maximum performance on the most unforgiving of trails.
The Salomon creation features a mixture of synthetic materials and premium quality textiles. It does not come with an eye-catching design, yet it is enough to warrant a closer look. The upper features unique anchor points for its lacing system. They resemble the support structures of suspension bridges, giving the Speedcross 4 a different look. The lacing system also features a one-pull tightening design. You will never have to fumble with tightening the laces for a more secure and comfortable fit ever again. The upper and lacing system guarantees closer-to-foot feel; something that will make you feel like you’re wearing a sock.
But the real surprise in the Speedcross 4 is its aggressive grip. Salomon uses the Contagrip rubber sole technology to help drive the lugs deep into the ground. With each running stride, the lugs penetrate deep on soft ground. These guarantee excellent traction. In hindsight, it would not be absurd to use the Speedcross 4 on a game of soccer. Its superior grip on natural terrain should be remarkable on the pitch.
Forming the Speedcross 4’s midsole is an EVA foam material. It does not come with anything technical or fancy. All it guarantees is stability for the foot and good-enough cushioning without sacrificing its lightweight characteristics. After all, you do not want a heavy shoe dragging your foot on the trail.
The Salomon Speedcross 4 is a great trail running shoe that comes with an aggressive grip. Its styling may not scream for attention, but it can deliver comfort on the trails.
