Welcome, to what I think is one of the most exciting reviews I have had the privilege to write to date. Ever since I started reviewing minimalist trail running shoes and apparel back in 2011, I have been looking for the 'ideal' in what to wear on my feet to battle the harsh conditions that trail running throws at you. I soon came to realise that, depending on conditions being either wet and muddy, or dry and rocky, whether summer, or winter, there is likely to be TWO different trail shoes to help us conquer the trails and fells that lay ahead of us.
With the discovery of the Vibram FiveFingers Spyridon LS which seemed to meet all my requirements for a natural feeling, light, minimalist trail shoe for dry weather and summer conditions, I was left searching for a more durable and grippy shoe for harsher, wet and winter conditions and longer runs. Enter the Salomon S-Lab Fellcross 2!
