Great Spike

I love this spike it locks my foot in perfect, but i personally feel better in the 200 than the 100 in these. These spikes have an extremely aggressive full plate made for strong sprinters, & perfectly for running the curves. All-Around a great spike.

My first competition with these shoes I took 2nd in the 100, 2nd in the 400 and 3rd in the 200. These are incredible shoes with great feel, stability and traction, and I look forward to great races ahead. I run Masters in the 50-54 group and highly recommend these spikes for anyone looking to run their very best!

Great spikes that need a little improvement

I have been using this spike for two years now and i have been very satisfied with it. I really like the durability of the plate and the fact that its a full plate. I feel that while many criticize full plates as problematic for turn runners, I found it to turn quite easily. The amount of spike holes seems a little excessive however and I feel that the top of the spike with its shoe lace covering design adds a nice touch to the look of the shoe but I find it unnecessary and could be removed for a simpler more light weight design that many sprinters seek out. overall i think it offers fantastic performance and is certainly among the most elite sprint spikes on the market.

Best sprint spike I've ever owned

PostedFebruary 1, 2012
I Run: Competitively
I Use This Product For: Racing
I'm a Masters level sprinter and have had several brands, but these are far superior to all of them. They are very good looking, well made, but the performance on the track is where these shoes demonstrate their value. They are very stable and allow you to get up on your toes easily and comfortably. The most noticeable advantage I found was their stability going hard around the curve while running the 200M. My times are now approaching times I haven't run in six years. Some sprint plates are too stiff and uncomfortable, but these perform their purpose allowing a superior feel, feedback and runner control.
