Salomon Speedcross 4 women is an excellent shoe for wet and dirty terrain and those requiring a very big grip.
No doubt, we recognize the SpeedCross 4 with our own eyes closed. We immediately note the drop to 10 millimeters; it seems to be a little perched. This is probably because of the habit of running with lower drops and thinner soles, closer to the ground, but with this SpeedCross 4, you may lose a little stability. An impression that is not foreign to the small width of the sole.
This first impression described (but not annoying), we discover an exact shoe, the wrapping of the foot remarkable despite foam comfort welcome: so we have a sports car tub with the soft side of a sedan. The placement of the Speedcross 4 is very precise, especially in peak.
Its unwind fluid, without a hard point. It is made to lie down and go fast. Reasonably light, it shines especially by a grip type “tractor,” the sole being a jaw ready to grip the ground. It does not saturate when we move in the mud.
The tongue is a model of comfort, very thick. The pressure of the automatic lacing, sturdy, is not felt. The negative point is its propensity to load moisture and weigh down the shoe.
The wrapping of the heel is perfect, the rigging of the foot, generally is above all suspicion. We found in the slope the strength of the grip of the sole but with a foot height to manage not to go to twist his ankle.
The cushioning is quite reduced, despite what Salomon’s technical sheet says. On the front, it is primarily the crampons that filter, while the heel is a consistent cushioning for this type of shoe that can boost very hard in contact with the ground, without loss of energy.
We have noted beautiful finishes and flattering materials that make Salomon Speedcross 4 women a good quality product.
