I'm a big Salomon fan, so I was stoked to hear they were coming out with a light-weight, minimal-type shoe. I've owned pretty much every trail shoe they've put out and I run about 15+ miles of trail every week in Tahoe (rocky, technical terrain and smooth dirt trails). To summarize, I was not very impressed with this shoe. The first thing I would mention is that they will not last you long. About a month in I felt like the shoe had been worn for a year already, and the fabric started tearing where the shoe lace rubbed on the outer material. The bottom sole held up just a little bit longer, but again, not as long as other Salomon's I've owned. I'd rather trade out a little weight for a shoe made of more durable material and lasting me a little longer. If you're looking for a light-weight shoe for one summer and you don't run much, this may be your shoe. I'll stick with the Salomon Speedcross.
