Cape Union Mart launches exclusive Grey Salomon Speedcross 4 for 3 months

image002Cape Union Mart Stores to hold exclusivity over the new Grey Salomon Speedcross 4 Shoe through their stores, nation-wide for three months as well as stocking a wide range of colour combinations.  Salomon’s Speedcross mountain running shoe has been the brand’s most successful and distinctive design, known for extreme comfort and durability on harsh terrain.

Created for steep and technical trails, the new Speedcross 4 incorporates key updates to optimise comfort and traction for long distances. Winning features that the Salomon Speedcross 4 has inherited from its predecessor include the cushioned midsole for distance running comfort, Salomon’s one-pull-to-tighten Quicklace system and a protective toe-cap. The tightly-woven, breathable mesh fabric of the upper prevents trail debris from getting into the forefoot area.

It also retains the features that made previous versions so popular. “Runners familiar with previous versions of the Speedcross shoe will be pleased that Salomon have done nothing to change the fit and cushioning,” says Shuaib Smith, Cape Union Mart’s Technical Foot Wear Buyer. He explains that the most visible refinement to the shoe is in the toothy tread of the sole.

“The previous version had half-lugs around the edge of the outsole. This new Speedcross 4 replaces these half-lugs with complete chevron-shaped lugs – like those across the forefoot and heel. This change improves wear and the durability of the edge of the outsole,” Smith says.

Durable and tough yet cushioned and comfortable, the Speedcross 4 combines strong heritage and sought after features with key improvements to make this trail shoe better, for your outdoor adventures.

Salomon Speedcross 4 is available at Cape Union Mart stores countrywide and online through, offering free delivery anywhere in South Africa.
