I am thinking of buying a pair of Salomon XR Crossmax for trail races. Being a cheap skate and no shop near me stock them. I will be buying of the interwebb. 

oh and if anyone uses these Salomon shoes are they suitable for dry summer trial marathons.  

So how does the sizing fit, Mizuno I have I can go with my shoes size but with my adidas I have to go up a full size. 

Thanks inadvance for your replies

I found salomons to be on the small side so i'd buy larger. If you buy from somewhere like Wiggle then you can exchange easily if required

They are quite good too!

Erm, depends what shoe you buy.  I'm an 11 in XA Pro 2's (catchy name eh?) and a 12 is quite tight in Speedcross 3's.

I'd say half a size, I wore 8s in Adidas, wear 7.5 in mizuno & recent Salomon purchase after trying 3 pairs on in shop were an 8.. Hope that helps?

Personal opinion I'd get mizuno wave ascends over crossmax..

I don't have any Adi runners but wear them a lot for casual.

I'm a 10 in them and a 10 in my new pair of Salomon Mission XR - not sure if the fit is the same as Crossmax though.

I am a size 8 normally and a size 8 in the crossmax(and the XT wings). The crossmax is very good for dry trail and infact not that brilliant on wet, slippery terrain. It is a brilliant shoe and persuaded me to later get the XT Wings which were still good but not worth the extra. Anyway good choice
