Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit different fit than the speedcross 3 I have had 3 pair of the speedcross 3's and I must say they are awesome shoes, Planning for a recent trip I decided I needed a GTX pair for mountain hikes, So decided on the Speedcross 4 GTX I assumed that the same size of my last 3 pair would work (size 9) to my dissmay a 9 was too big, I had to reorder an 8.5 and the fit for me is still a bit wide and "not the glove like fit of the speedcross 3" These are still great shoes but seem to now run a bit wider, I perfer the fit of the old speedcross 3! I also need to give a shout out to REI customer service for sending me the correct size overnight!! REI customer service is second to none!! Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save the $$ OK, two stars may be a bit harsh. Traction is superb and the fit seems a bit more forgiving than the Speedcross 3. However, I bought the GTX version to be, well, waterproof. First run was on a sloppy Western WA trail. Shoes were never submerged but puddles (1 inch deep perhaps) were here and there on the trail. After the first random splashes on top of the toe boxes, shoes were filled with water. No hint of even water resistance, much less waterproof. Drainage, as with the Speedcross 3, is virtually nonexistent. So - finished the run with my feet in size 9 water filled bathtubs. I could tell no difference whatsoever between the GTX version and my old non GTX Speedcrosses. Save the money and forego GTX.

Just need to know if the tongue is gusseted? Thank you!

Asked by: Dr Eric
The Speedcross 4 GTX Trail-Running Shoes have a gusseted tongue that stops debris from getting inside the shoe.
