Advice for Trail Runners: The Salomon Men's Speedcross 6 GORE-TEX in the Black/Red colourway is fully-waterproof. This means your feet should stay dry and comfortable on the trails.
You should feel lots of underfoot protection in the Salomon Speedcross 6. This is because the midsole features a thick layer of EnergyCell+ cushioning. This level of padding should perform well over longer distances and on hard-packed ground.
Widely-spaced 5 mm lugs grip exceptionally well on mud, loose ground and steep slopes. The specific outsole design improves mud shedding, ensuring you enjoy the same level of traction throughout your run. Don't worry too much about wet rocks, the Contagrip rubber compound sticks to slippery surfaces.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Salomon Speedcross 6 GORE-TEX upper is fully-waterproof. If you're looking to keep your feet dry on wet trail runs, these are one of the best options.
As the upper features Salomon's SensiFit construction, you should feel like your feet are well supported. Particularly in the midfoot area. With an abrasion-resistant ripstop fabric, the upper should withstand the rigours of rough trails.
Given how aggressive the grip is on the Salomon Men's Speedcross 6 GORE-TEX, we recommend using these on challenging trails. By this, we mean muddy paths, rocky slopes and steep gradients.
They're also incredibly well suited to longer distance runs. That's because the midsole should feel very protective if you're on your feet for a long time.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
