Asics Hypersprint 5 Men's Spike Black/Silver Customer feedback

Comments: The Hypersprint 5 is a light, fast, and stylish shoe (I have the black and silver version). The fit is snug and I don't need socks to race in them. Each shoe holds 5 spikes. The shoes are fine, it's the spikes that come with them that's the problem. The spikes are too short (3mm, 1/8"). They barely clear the plastic stubs around the spike wells. I thought it was a fluke but the Hypersprint 4's that I have also has spikes that are too short. It took me warming up before a regional championship to notice that fact. I couldn't get traction. Needless to say I ran my worst race of the year. If you buy these shoes be sure to buy some spikes also (I recommend spikes 7mm, 1/4" in length). Despite that one problem I really like these shoes.
