Perfect tool for trail running in mountain conditions. Fit is precise. Lacing system easy and effective. Break-in quickly. As expected they improve grip and the low weight is fantastic. Thin soles give great feedback from the ground but sufficiently protect against pain without sacrificing feel. Most surprising and impressive is the grip advantage in downhills on slick loose dirt, rocks and mud. These soles grip amazingly well allowing for fast and furious descents. The grip and lightweight is helpful in climbs as well. They're expensive, but worth it if you're serious about mountain running. I'd almost venture to say these are ESSENTIAL equipment.

I've tried on the Speedcross and some others. Speedcross compared to the Fellcross: Fellcross seemed more flexible and allows for a much cleaner forefoot/mid-foot landing to promote a quick cadence. Cadence is very important to me. I love to run fast! I usually run at 180 steps per min. When the shoes is stiff, It just doesn't feel right. It seems like most trails shoes I get are much too stiff. I now have three pair of La Sportivas, and two pair of Montrails. They were all too stiff for me. I stopped wearing them because I felt like I was starting to get injured.
I also love the decreased heel drop in the Fellcross. I am a healthy runner and I'm trying to keep it that way. After some runs I will do 2 to 4 mile barefoot or in my five fingers (which I love).
My first few runs in the Fellcross worried me a little. The crease forms rub my left arch the wrong way. I try to loosen them and break them in, but it wouldn't stop. Blister!!! I never had blister there before. I was sad because I like these shoes a lot. Then I put and extra shoe insert and No more blister! The shoe was great after that. Now, every time I am off road it's Fellcross.
I ran and won the UpChuck 50k, Lookout Mt 50miler, & Mt. Cheaha 50k in them. I had no blister or problems. I feel very strong and fast in them. Light Muscle! Like it!
I hope this helps you. I do like the Speedcross but love the Fellcross for racing. I wish you healthy running. I highly recommended the Fellcross for fast, neural runners.
