    Track Spikes

    Post by Just Because on Sat Jan 17, 2009 8:06 pm

    There are certain spikes that haven't been released in Canada that are down in the States. I was going to buy a pair off Eastbay but with boarder taxes and such it wasn't worth it. Luckily, a guy i run with is going down to the States on business and is willing to pick me up a pair of spikes so.. Recommend your favourite spikes, I have decided that I wanted to spend the extra few bucks and get a really nice pair that I can use for indoor and outdoor track.

    Doesn't matter..I am looking for ppl's personal favourites no matter the brand. It can be spikes that you have really liked in the past, spikes you really want, etc.

    i have the milers and really like them. you could probably find some really cheap ones since they came out with the victory. i might get the victorys or matumbos now though just because a couple of spikes have gotten completely stuck in my spikes and they're too long. and my parents have been saying i can get them for awhile now. but i really like the ones i have so idk.

    milers were the best and they are probably really cheap. i got them on eastbay for 60 bucks last year so they are probably cheaper now. victories are the lightest spike ive ever held, but never tried them so.

    If you're fast enough get the Victories or Matumbos, otherwise it's probably not worth it.

    I have decided on the Victories because my parents promised to go half and half on the cost. Very Happy
