XC Spikes Guide

Why race in spikes? If most of your meets are on soft-surface courses (dirt and grass), cross-country spikes are your best choice for one simple reason: traction. Metal spike shoes provide much better lightweight traction on grass or loose dirt than any other type of running shoe. Spikes also provide much better toe spring than regular racing flats, making it easier to run faster because you're practically forced to run on your toes. Read on to browse the Fleet Feet Sports Knoxville spike shop. Additional spike models may be found on FleetFeetSports.com, but remember that team discounts are not available for online purchases.
