This is the most comfortable track spike I have ever worn, and I have used many. The wide toe box is heavenly.

This was a little too narrow for me -- but I wasn't ready for the weird outside material. kind of leatherish is the best way I can describe it.

Crazy tight just behind the toe area (right in front of the laces) I used to fit into every pair of Altras in my size, but this year 3 of 3 pairs have the same problem. I am very disappointed in Altra. What is the point of a roomy toe box if the middle of the shoe pinches like crazy? They did look nice and felt light for running, but unwearable for me

I'd also recommend: inov8
