Customer Reviews

Comments: WHY ARE THESE SHOES DISCONTINUED!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!! I've ran my best 1500, my best 1600, my best 5k's and my best 10ks all in these shoes and they are worn down so much over the last 3 years! I need size nine Ventulus shoes back. I love my babies best spikes EVER! :( now i got to save them for the championship races because they are wearing down.... I highly recommend these shoes!
From: April, El Paso, TX, USA

Comments:  Got them today and did easy strides on track today to try them out. There very light, barely tell the difference between the victories weight. probably only good for a normal outdoor tracks surface due to plate. Runs true to size. Was worried when people said was not agressive enough but i completly disagree after running the 200m strides.Midfoot land is solid with ease of getting up on the toes for kicking or speeding up. Seems it would work great for 800m and up and great for speedwork.Only problem is the bottom where the white foam is, im not sure how durable it is. and the arch is higher than most spikes or flats ive worn but a mediums arch should be fine.

Comments: Very light. Sometimes you don't even notice them. Not the best shoe for harder surfaces because they will hurt your feet but they are perfect on an outdoor track. I use these primarily for the 1600 and 3200. I highly recommend these speaking as a competitive athlete.
From: Geoff, NY, USA

Comments: Great light shoe with lots of support in the arch. However, watch out for really firm tracks, one of the spike pins gave me a blood blister because it wasn't sinking into the track all the way. Other than that incident couldn't even tell they were on my feet.
From: Ian, Philadelphia, PA

Comments: I absolutely love them.
