Customer Reviews

Comments: Great fit, and super light. Easily the most comfortable spikes I've owned. Great especially for runners who heel strike.
From: Zack, Franklin, TN, USA

Comments: I just ran a mile race in these shoes and they were a significant improvement from my previous Adidas ones.  Very lightweight and overall a great pair of racers if you are running long distances.  I was impressed.
