Track & Field Spike Nails - Steel
EXTRA TRACTION equates to FASTER RUNS !
Quality product Made in USA
14 pieces Stainless Steel Spikes (2 pieces Balancers) in a universal threaded head suitable for use with all brands of Track & Field spike shoes. Built for the track star competing in a variety of events, this will allow you to perform to your best. The staple for Track & Field & runners alike.
Grip the track better, getting traction even in wet or otherwise harsh conditions. A variety of spike types exist. Smaller, spikes, such as these, often work on standard tracks for short/medium distances.
Spikes are meant to help athletes perform their best on the track. They are super light-weight and give you that extra boost that could be the difference between second and first place. Every ounce of your effort is translated into a reaction/forward movement when your foot & the spike cleats comes into contact with the track. Why waste it without track & Field spikes?
WHAT KIND OF SPIKES DO I NEED?
Shoe companies usually have three types of spikes based on your running events: sprint, mid-distance, and long-distance. The sprint can be anywhere from 100 meters to 400 meters, and the mid-distance can cover 800 meters to 5000 meters, making it a good all-around spike for the athlete who does a little bit of everything.
DO SPIKES FIT DIFFERENTLY THAN RUNNING SHOES?
We like to have about a thumb length of room in our running shoes, but we want a snug fit in our spikes so you may need a half or full size smaller than your running shoes. Please fit your spikes to make sure you have the right size for your feet.
SHOULD I ONLY WEAR SPIKES TO RACE?
Spikes are very light with little cushion, and are normally used on race day. This doesn't mean you can’t use them for a hard track workout but this should be the exception. Ensure you have a new pair of running shoes for your training runs & use them at least on a 60/40 ratio and keep the spikes for the meets where you really need them & for regular training stints in your regime.
WHAT ABOUT CHANGING THE SPIKES?
After a while your spikes will wear down and you will want to replace them. We have a variety of spikes of all different lengths as well.
