Rated 5 out of 5 by sarahfina Fabulous trail running shoes
I bought these today after doing a bit of reviewing on-line.
I saw that everyone said they ran big, mind you they didn't have the 1/2 size smaller, but I'm fairly certain they would have been too short. So I wore my "regular" size and they were only a tiny bit loose in the toe box. By loose I mean above my toes, as I have a wide foot in the toe box, but it's not "tall" if you will, but very flat.
I was able to wear them out of the box for the 2+ mile walk/jog through the trails w/out any uncomfort.
I can't specifically speak to the waterproof of these shoes as it was dry today. But I will say my feet were quite toasty when I was done, so they may be ridiculously warm during the summer months.
The tread has fabulous grip on the trails I was on w/old leaves, roots and pine needles, etc.
All & all, very comfy sneakers which can be worn out of the box w/very good grip for trails.

The cross country trails near my house are always wet because they are mostly grass. The groundwater is high creating occasional shallow puddles and the grass seems to always be full of dew. Running on these trails my regular running shoes can be full of water within a half mile. Yesterday I ran 5 miles on the trails and while my feet were damp when I finished I'm pretty sure it was from sweat. The shoes were not soaked through. And they have excellent traction. I'm very happy.
After reading the reviews here and elsewhere I ordered down a half size. That was a mistake. My Asics and Brooks are size 8 and that's what I needed in these too. LLBean got an exchange out quickly and I was on the trails right away.

These sneakers are amazing! They have a Ortholite nsole that has almost cured my Plantar's facitis!!!! So comfortable, great support.. Get daily compliments on the look of these sneakers too. True to size.i love these sneakers so much that I purchased 2 more this month and now am thinking I may want more of the orange/purple color because it's so unique and stylish!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Basscatcher Coolest shoes I have ever worn!
People stop me everytime I wear these to tell me how awesome looking they are! They look like real running shoes, and though I refuse to excersize, I do wear the shoes daily, and even curtail my outfits so I can wear the shoes. I plan on wearing them out so I can buy more wild colors. They fit very well, are very light and comfortable. Took me a few days to get used to them because they are so light. While expensive, they are unique, and I have yet to see someone wear them, which makes them extra special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LizSCV Lightweight, fantastic traction!
Bought these after returning Brooks Cascadia because there was too much lateral play in the forefoot. These shoes are super light, and the nubbies on the sole are great at gripping, as well as giving some extra cushion. I took them for a run around the Freeport store, debating between these and a pair from Merrell. The deciding factor was arch support - in the shoe mirror I had better single-leg stability in these. Super light - my friends are amazed when they pick them up! My only complaint is that I seem to have to re-tighten the lace system after a few minutes of running, but then the laces hold well for the rest of the run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CasualRunnerOH Grippy and water resistent
I just purchased the speed cross3 women's trail shoes for the first time. I needed a pair of shoes to run in the snow without having to use metal crampons. These shoes are perfect for what I need them! They have great grip and my feet didn't get wet like when I used my regular running shoes. Like other reviews I read before my purchase, I agree that they run a little big, so I ordered a size 8 instead of 8 1/2 like I usually buy and they are perfect! The only thing I can criticize a little bit is that the laces are very thin, I wish they were a little wider. It however does not affect the quality of my run, this is just a personal prefferance. Very Happy with my purchase!
