The Speed­cross has be­come a clas­sic shoe for rugged trail and moun­tain­ous ter­rain. The stan­dard Speed­cross has an ag­gres­sive out­sole with grippy lugs, and Salomon’s ex­cel­lent up­per, in­cludes their sig­na­ture quick-lac­ing sys­tem, which di­als in the best fit of the win­ter shoes we’ve tested here.

The win­ter­ized ver­sion of the Speed­cross 4 tucks in a layer of Gore-Tex, mak­ing the shoe even more suit­able for chal­leng­ing con­di­tions. But it’s also a re­ally well­rounded all-sea­son trail shoe, so long as the temps don’t get too high. Our testers did report that it’s warm, which is a good thing for a win­ter shoe.
