Bright colors are fairly normal when it comes to running shoes, but it isn’t often that we see bold colors cross over into the world of trail shoes. Generally speaking, the world of trail shoes consists of a lot of natural and earth tone colorways that tend to blend in with the surroundings they are designed to be worn in.
Salomon is taking a different approach on this colorway of the SpeedCross 2 that will be available at Eastbay in early March. Instead of those subtle earthy colors, they’ve covered the SpeedCross 2 in a mix of bold hues, like Tomato Red, Deep Blue and Bolt Blue. The SpeedCross 2 is loaded with technology to back up this bold colorway. Of course Solomon’s Quicklace lacing system is included, but underneath it lays a combination of quick-drying and breathable nylon mesh. Along with the synthetic leather overlays that add a bit of durability, the SpeedCross 2 is also fitted with a rugged toecap to protect against debris and premature wear. The SpeedCross 2 also features the Sensifit design that helped the XA Pro 3D Ultra score a high review. Underneath it all resides a Winter Contagrip rubber outsole that provides traction, even if you have to go through snow, slush and ice.
