Additional Information

Liberate your potential with this ultralight, supremely efficient spike, designed to improve personal bests from the mile up to 10,000 meters. Weighing in at a svelte 3.6 ounces, this speedster’s upper has been completely rebuilt with a reinforced mesh and internal suede saddle that holds the foot on the platform with minimal materials. Even the overlays are screen printed on to add a pop of color without excess weight and fewer seams. Spike place flex grooves bring efficiency to the propulsion phase with ample toe flexibility.


Available in men's sizes only. For women we suggest ordering 1.5 sizes smaller than what you usually wear.

The first time I put on these spikes I ran a 15 second PR in the 5k after not coming close to it in four years. First time I ran a 10k in them- minute PR! I love these spikes and would recommend them to distance runners who want to hit it hard in the distance events on the track! However, build into them slowly! They are an extremely fast spike but also an extremely intense spike and if you do to much to quickly in them they will make your calves burn like you didn't know was possible!

Comments about The Wire 2:

I got the prototypes with my the rest of varsity on my High School XC team, and they have been great. I got them 2 years ago and my only major complaint is that the shoelaces aren't the best on the prototypes, they're too long. Other than that, they work great when they're laced tight and they work in the rain (and snow). Only use on the track!

Sweet Spike

By Dan of the APUNSC

About Me Avid Athlete

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Cushions Impact
  • Good Traction
  • Lightweight
  • Looks Sick
  • Responsive

Cons

  • Wears Quickly

Best Uses

  • Cross Country
  • Racing
  • Speed work
  • Track

Comments about The Wire 2:

I used the white/green/blue ones during cross country and found that the plate was really responsive and gave great traction on the uphill. However, the sides ripped out after about six 5ks and the plate literally ripped in half during state championships. That being said, state was ran on an extremely rocky/hilly course, so it was more of a personal issue than anything. I just got the neon/blue ones, and the upper is far more durable/comfortable and the response and cushioning is greatly improved from the other color.

  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Poor Stability
  • Wears Quickly

  • Dry Weather

Comments about The Wire 2:

The Wire 2 is a good spike with great traction and a very lightweight build. They are so light that it feels like there's nothing on your feet! These shoes hold my 3200m PR. However, these shoes are not very durable; I used them only for the 3200m from the beginning of indoor to the end of outdoor and they were torn by the end of the outdoor season, so about 10 races. They were all in dry conditions, except for at the state meet where they tore even more because of the moisture. It is a good idea to wear thicker socks with them as well to prevent blisters, something I had minor issues with. Even though it has those flaws, it is still my favorite long-distance spike and I will continue to use it.
