Rob Warewrote a review of Salomon Speedcross 4 Trail Running Shoe - Women's on August 10, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
There's a reason you see these shoes everywhere––they're rugged, comfortable, and versatile for outdoor fun in the mountains. My wife picked up a pair of these for trail running, but found they make a better hiking and approach shoe for her.
She has fairly flat, medium-width, low-volume feet and said the toe box is WAY too narrow to spread/engage the forefoot, the high arch-support at the midfoot can can cause blistering, and the drop of the shoe is tough on her knees when it comes to running more than a mile or so on trails or pavement.
However, when she's camping, hiking to crags, or on climbing trips, she LOVES the burly tread, easy on/off thanks to the QuickLace system, and the stability/precision provided by the rock plate and toe. They're a staple in her gear closet, but she'd recommend checking out brands like Saucony or Brooks for those with similar feet. She wears a W's 8.5/9 in street shoes, and a 9/9.5 in these––size up at least a half size in these for hiking, or perhaps a full size for running.
