XC Spikes Are HERE!

XC SpikesThe beauty of running cross country is that you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment.  There are no pads, helmets, sticks or balls.  All you really need is a good pair of shoes (and a quality sports bra for the ladies).  And while you can race in your trainers, there is nothing like a pair of XC spikes to make you fast on your feet while you eat up the mud and hills. 

XC Spikes are lightweight like track spikes, but feature a little extra tread to help provide traction through grass and dirt and a bit more cushion especially under the heel to absorb shock and protect the foot from rocks, roots and debris– though they are not nearly as cushioned as a trainer which is why runners save their spikes for race day.

XC Savings PassAs usual, we’ve got your feet covered with a great selection of spikes from entry-level to “I’m going to win States” from brands like Brooks, New Balance, Nike and Saucony.  Most feature an aggressive forefoot design to maximize foot propulsion and a snug upper for a no-slip fit the makes the shoe feel one with your foot.  Plus, this year’s colors and designs are fantastic!
