    Yeah, spikes really aren't made to mess with biomechanical issues. You probably won't run long enough in them to cause any problems.

    I was going to get nike milers but the guy that owns the store said he doesn't have any nike spikes because they suck and they were all falling apart last year. Thats why I got the Shay XC-
