First off... it's been a while, sorry about that. I will be trying to post more frequently in the upcoming weeks :)
Ordered some of these bad boys off the internet the other day (Saucony mens showdown) :
They look SAWEEEET! As well as being amazingly light, as if you are running in socks. They are comfortable (apart from one little niggle which we'll get to in a bit) which can sometimes be a compromise when trying to make the lightest spike - but not in this case. The fastening system consists of laces under a zip, which is then secured by a Velcro cover - no chance of them coming undone then!
The spike plate holds 10, which i've never experienced until now. Don't think i've noticed a particular traction boost over my old 7 spike, but they look all the more aggressive with the extra spikes that's for sure!
Now that little niggle i was talking about... when in full sprint i noticed the outerside of my foot was being cut into by the spike. This is due to my foot sitting too low in the spike, so a bit of DIY was in order:
The answer^ Foam. Cut to the shape of the heel to fit snugly in the shoe. Raises my foot that vital amount to clear the area that was giving me grief, so chuffed!
