The Salomon S-LAB Speed is the latest edition to the S-LAB family. A fully evolved shoe, taking what was great about the Fellcross 3 and adding what some are calling the stickiest compound any off road shoe has ever seen. Tested against leading shoes in its category and wowing even Ricky Lightfoot - who has been involved in the creation of all Salomon Fellcross from day one. The Speed is definitely an out and out fell running shoe.
With broader lugs where the foot needs maximum power and traction, the outsole takes a lot of beating. Just as well then, that there are now more overlays surounding the foot and a tougher, yet lighter weight upper.
On open ground we expect this shoe to live up to its name entirely.
