Comments: I agree with other reviewers: not durable enough at all. If there is any gravel, pavement, or non-grass/dirt areas on your course, you are better off with the Shays. I went through two pairs and had the same problem each time: the spikes and the sockets in the shoes got bent out of place (sockets were bent sideways) and the shoe became unusable with spikes. I use them as flats for workouts on grass now. Stick to the Shay XC, its new update is much lighter than it was and it's much more durable.

Comments: Nice & light but fragile! First time I wore them stepped on a rock & the spike got pushed through the sole of the shoe and got stuck pushed in...very uncomfortable for the rest of the race. Nice shoe if you can aford a new pair each time you wear them...
