This is my 2nd pair of Speedcrosses. I love them. Salomon makes a great product and they hold up. I don't run trails or tough mudders but I do coach youth sports and love these shoes for wet grass or muddy fields. Best part is when they are covered in grass and mud I just hose them off and leave them out to dry. They run about a half size small as I wear a 12 in most other shoes but went wear a 12.5-13 in the speedcross. I love the color options and design of the shoe. The Speedlace system works great. I do wear these shoes all day and they are comfortable. The tread is aggressive and walking on pavement does wear them out but I have gone a year with a pair and they still have some tread left and none of the nobbies have broken off. The speedcross and the Fellraiser are my go to shoes when coaching and playing sports.
I previously had the regular Speedcross 3s so I knew what to expect size-wise and with respect to feel. They fit like most other running shoes on the market, as far as I can tell, but have a much better arch support. Oddly, I have tried a few other Salomon hiking shoes and boots with the OrthoLite sole but they never quite felt right, this shoe, however, is heavenly for my feet. So, I would suggest trying them on before you buy them if at all possible, even if you have other Salomon OrthoLite products.
I opted for the CS version this time because I have had a few instances of wet feet while camping with the regular version so it made sense when I finally wore out the regular pair I had. As other commenters have noted, these will not last long on paved streets, they belong on an unpaved trail. On pavement or hard flooring the treads will wear down significantly in a matter of weeks (~<2 weeks). Since I wear mine mostly on trails I got a good 8 months of heavy use out of...
I purchased these shoes as winter bad weather and shoe tennis shoes, with some intention to use the for trails in warmer months. I was looking for something with good traction that would keep my feet dry, both of which these shoes have. On top of that, these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever put on my feet, they are quite a pleasant surprise. I do have slightly narrow feet and they fit like a glove, so someone with wife feet may have an issue. But with Amazon's return policy, that should be easy enough. They are definitely worth trying if you're in the market for great outdoor sneakers.
*After using these all Winter and this Fall, these shoes still look and feel great and work amazingly well. I'd love a street version of these shoes. These are probably the best purchase I've made on Amazon.
