Salomon Speedcross Vario 2 Trail Running Shoes

If you are looking for a solid grip shoe with great shock absorbing qualities, and is comfortable and lightweight to wear, the Salomon Speedcross Vario shoes are for you.

Not So Good Points:

  • Tight Fit (at first!)
  • Buy One Size Up

The beauty about trail running shoes is they are designed to provide so much support, which also makes them perfect for everyday walking too.

I’ve had these Salomon Speedcross Vario 2 trail running shoes for about three months now and I am so pleased with them – I don’t even run!

They have an anti-debris mesh upper with durable synthetic overlays which means small stones and dust are kept out protecting your feet even on the dustiest of roads.

SENSIFIT cradles your foot from the lacing through to the midsole giving you a snug and secure fit. This appears slightly tight at first but you soon get used to this and the shoe feels like it moulds round your foot, providing a nice secure fit.

The Salomon Speedcross Vario comes with a comfortable fabric lining and Ortholite sock liner providing comfort throughout the fit.

I found the Wet Traction Contragrip rubber outsole with its large rugged lugs gave an excellent grip on rough terrain and everyday walking surfaces.

This design also provides you with a little spring in your step, propelling you forward as you walk.

Plenty of padding in the ankle collar provides support and comfort.

Heel protection is supplied by a lightweight EVA compound that absorbs impacting shock which has been a treat experience as it feels you are walking on air.

They are easy to slip on and off thanks to the lacing system which also allows for a variety of ways to adjust your lacing according to your desired fit.

As I said, they do feel slightly tight at first as they are a narrow fit so I am glad I bought one full size up from my usual size. They soon bedded in and are now very comfortable and supportive to wear.


Cradles the foot perfectly for a secure and snug fit

Contragrip Sole

Exceptional traction and grip on loose gravel and wet roads.

Lightweight Shoe

Comfortable even during long walking and training days.


I have been looking for a comfortable and fashionable all day walking shoe for ages. So when I came across these Salomon Speedcross Vario 2 running shoes I was a bit dubious as I am not a runner but I soon realised they were a great investment.

You will need to buy one size up to provide more comfort and they are a narrow fit so be prepared to wait a while whilst they bed in. But never fear as they will quickly provide you with superb grip, a supportive hold and an extremely comfortable wear.

I would go as far as saying these are the perfect walking/hiking/running shoes – in my opinion!!
