Great for XC and track

I wear these for cross country in the winter and sometimes on the track too. I found a UK 10.5 was a good fit, longer than my normal UK 9.5 but good width and midfoot support.

Super comfy but spike plate is weak

I use these for my cross country 5ks and for track races from 400m-3200m and they work great. They're fast and comfy but the only problem I have is that for the last two pairs I've had one spike has bent back into the sole. It has happened twice and it kind of ruins the spike.

Barely made it through the season

These spikes are not strong enough for typical varied cross country running (grass, dirt, rocks). After just a few races, several of the spikes and spike wells were bent sideways. This happened throughout the season several times and I was able to forcibly remove the spike and sort of straighten the well. By mid-October some of the spikes were too far bent to be straightened. At the state meet,…

These spikes are not strong enough for typical varied cross country running (grass, dirt, rocks). After just a few races, several of the spikes and spike wells were bent sideways. This happened throughout the season several times and I was able to forcibly remove the spike and sort of straighten the well. By mid-October some of the spikes were too far bent to be straightened. At the state meet, one of the wells broke entirely and now pushes up inside the shoe and the spike just spins and cannot be removed. Luckily this happened at the end of the race and did not affect my performance. Nice and lightweight, but not rugged enough for real cross country conditions. Read More

Way Small

I never even got to try these out. My foot is a 7 1/2 and I usually run in an 8, track shoes included. My ELMN8-3's even allow for an insole; these are so tight I could barely get them on with no socks and removing the thin sinsole. It's as if they were built on a Women's 8 last. Yes, if I tried them on at a brick-and-mortar I wouldn't have this problem but tell me where a store in Florida that…

Not strong enough for cross-country - dead after 20 miles

Wore shoes 5 times, 4 times over 3 miles, once over 6 miles, all on soft ground. After first run already noticeable that the spikes were bending. On 3rd run a spike bent sideways. The plastic holding the spikes in place is not strong enough. After each run, I carefully cleaned the shoes and dried them gently. On 5th run, toe came through the material. Very disappointed. Talking to others…

Talking to others the spike issue is common. This is a track shoe and should never be promoted as suitable for cross-country. Very disappointed. Read More
