        Comments about Mach 15:

        They fit small, really. Some of the reviews say they fit small, some say they fit true to size. I train in the Brooks Pure Connect size 11 but needed size 11.5 in these spikes. Also they fit a narrow foot perfectly.

          Comments about Mach 15:

          I used this spike this past cross country season. I loved it from the first moment I tried it on at my favorite running store. I wore them sockless all season on my way to a 16.25 PR and 3 local race wins. From what I know, the same designer behind the Victory XC from the swoosh designed this spike also, and I used a Victory XC 1 for two seasons. This spike is super comfortable, fit my foot like a glove, and looks great. Not super breathable and I got blisters (running sockless) and they smelled like the dickens by the end of the season (running sockless). But that's how it is with racing competitively.

          I use this for cross country. No real problems, very light, comfortable. They may not have enough cushion for some, but they were fine for me.

              I use them on the track as well as XC. They have a rubber bottom/plate which lend themselves towards XC. However, they feel great on the track with a bit more cushioning them other MD/LD spikes.

                Comments about Mach 15:

                I was a test wearer for the spike-less version really like them. However, i needed the spiked version for XC meets. These shoe are worth it and I will get more than one season out of these spikes. Other brands tend to last only a season.
                I feel that these shoes run a half size smaller than traditional road shoes. (i.e. ghosts I wear 9.5 these I wear 10).
