    Salomon trail runners for 800K

    I wore men's wide speedcross 4s on my first Camino, they lasted pretty well for 900ks and I'm tough on them. Only thing was the top inside heal must rub and wore through. I wore the speedcross 5 last Camino and again pleased with them. Wore in conjunction with toe socks liners and smart wool outers.
