Unusual but good shoe
They were an absolutely great shoe for the wet summer of 2007 - there was a mixture of mud from the heavy rain but still patches of pretty hard ground and the Speed Cross was absolutely ideal.
I'm not a fell runner but I suspect that they might not work as a fell shoe - I ran up Jacob's Ladder in a pair and despite the cushioning there was little real under-foot protection and I ended up bruising the balls of my feet.
The other problem I had with them was that I wore them day in, day out last summer and after about 300 miles had destroyed the heel cusioning. However, I was so impressed that I immediately bought another pair.
