Additional Information

Reach supersonic speeds with the lighter than light Mach 16 cross country spike for men. With great traction and asymmetrical lacing for a wrap-your-foot fit, this totally dope sprinter breaks the sound barrier on the way to the tape. At only 5.3 ounces, your feet can fly, while a supple, seamless upper lets you run sockless so there’s less between you and the course. Also available without spikes.

Comments about Mach 16:

So, as long as you do your homework and know what these are and what they aren't, you will be very very happy. They are not sneakers, although I love to wear a pair around town. They are not marathon shoes, although I finished my third marathon in a pair of these. Yeah, they are cross country flats. I use them for 200m and 400m distances, and for 5-10k. I have several spikeless ones and one pair of spikes that I wear on the track on rainy days.

I am a small person with narrow feet who likes to run sockless. I run near the front of my foot. They are a very liberating shoe for me because they are so minimal, but not gimmicky minimal. There's just enough foam for it to be a shoe. If you buy "your size," you will find them tight. If you want to run in socks you should get a full size larger than your standard. The upper is paper thin but amazingly I have never had one tear. The midsole is just enough foam, and there's enough structure for me run on my toes comfortably during sprints and keep me on the balls of my feet during rests, although it does take discipline. The laces feel cheap at first but a few runs in and I understood why they use the lightweight ones (they are plenty durable). The asymmetric lacing system is hard to get away from once you've had a shoe that uses it. It is subtle but a definite improvement on typical shoe design.

If you weigh more than average, you might want to go with a PureProject shoe or some other lightweight shoe with a bit more padding. Mach 16s will probably bottom out on you and fall apart quickly. But for me, 140lbs, 5'9", skin and bones, ice skate feet, they are exactly what I want. My only criticism is that the rubber nub on the front started to come up quickly on my daily pair. Like, under 20 miles. But they don't seem to be coming up much more. But that's a lot better than having the foam come off the shoe. I also wish they came in other colors. And definitely be ready to order a half-size or whole size up if you run in socks or find your standard size a bit snug.
