    Our local shop here only carries the 3 . Haven't even heard of the 4. Are the 4's better or just go with 3's? 3's felt really good but figured maybe the newer 4's could be even better possibly?

    4s are great but so are 3's, you won't be disappointed.

    4’s are made with gore-Tex and supposed to be waterproofish. Probably helps with early Morning dew in the OF

    Do the 4's fit the same ? Tried on 3's today at 11.5 which is what my normal shoe size is and they fit good. So if the 4's fit the same i'd order em off of Amazon for 80.00 canadian. Hell of a deal from what i'm hearing and reading.

    Just make sure they're legit shoes and not knock offs. There are a lot of fakes and those can be had on the bay for like $30-$40 bucks.

    I've tried the knock offs and the traction and fit are similar but the durability didn't seem as good as the real ones. At least on the pair I tired.

    Maybe I'm better off buying them from a reputable seller locally in store..he's got the 3s for 100. Isn't Amazon pretty good though? I know ebay is sketchy if ordering from China but I thought Amazon was good ?

    The ad looks legit, says it’s sold by and shipped from Amazon. You Should be good to go, I asked the wife.....she’s an amazon expert. There’s at least one box from amazon on my front step daily

    Read a ton of reviews and going off those i can't go wrong with either the 3 or 4. I'll pick up the 3's tonight locally as i have a tournament coming this long weekend monday and i dont want to use my cleats anymore like ever again. I used my everyday shoes last league game and felt better . Those were salomon ultra's so similar but little less traction from the looks of it.

    After wearing the 4's, I'll never go back to another shoe. Blows everything else out of the water. Glad they also come in Wides for my fat feet.

    I just picked up the 3's lol. Either way i'm looking forward to trying them in a double header tonight. No one around here carried the 4 and didn't wanna wait for Amazon as i have a tourny coming up monday as well.
    Living in a remote rural area has it's downsides to getting up to date stuff fast.

    So just wanted to say these speedcross 3's are friggin awesome. So if the 4's are even better than just dang lol. Used em for two games last night and feels like i'm not even wearing shoes and running on clouds. Too soon to say but me thinks cleats are gone for good.
    Thanks for all the input guy's .

    They are great while wearing, but made my knees just ache after playing in them.

    Had the same happen to my first pair. Sent in a few pictures and they sent me a voucher to get a new pair. Latest pair seems to be holding up nicely though. If not for the 2 year warranty on them, I don't think I would've purchased.

    you probably are wearing the wrong size and should contact them for warranty replacement. I'm assuming you bought the real ones and not knock offs from China

    I like my Speedcross's but my Adidas trails are more comfortable. But you coming from cleats...any turf is an upgrade in comfort. I've had Boombah, Mizuno, and Adidas and all are way more comfortable than cleats.
