There is nothing quite like a Nike Rival spike. Cross country races are grueling, but the comfortable fitted soft insides of the spike put significantly less pressure on my foot. This spike is made for a true cross country race. The sleek camouflage designs and superior forefoot traction set this spike above all else. There is some great cushion under the heel which is very comfortable, but weighs the spike down a tiny bit. I really like how it says "Nike Grind" on the side of the shoe. The 4 spike design on the forefoot is simple, efficient and works well. Definitely check this show out when you come in for this season's new spikes.
