    Wow! I had no idea that there was even a difference at all between the two! My brother is a track runner (sprinter), and I wanted to get him some spikes for his birthday that’s coming up, and I was unsure of whether it was a good idea just to get him any spikes that looked cool. But thanks to this article, I now know which ones would be best for him. Thank you so much for this.

    Thanks for this educating article on the comparison between Track spikes vs. Country Cross Spikes. If not for the fact that I was reasonable enough to have read this article, I also had the mindset that spikes are all the same. Haven read this article, I now know the difference between the two and the importance of spikes.

    There have been times where I really want to get full knowledge about spikes before getting anew one, and I have been really thrilled with the quality of cross-county Spike’s that I have seen in recent times. However, I have never thought about going for a cross country race, but I’ve been involved in lots of track races. I believe it will be nice to own a good cross country spike because I wouldn’t want to try using a track spike for it

      Hello, Jason, and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      I agree; you need to be very careful if you want to mix the cross country and track spikes. Many long-distance runners own different pairs of shoes for track and cross country, so they don’t damage things.

      As you talk about your interest in Cross country spikes, I think you will be interested in this post here.

    This was news to me. I couldn’t tell you the difference between the cross country spikes shoe and the track spikes shoe if you would have present them to me to identify them. I also thought that spikes on shoes would slow you down as it digs into the ground. But as I found out in your article, it isn’t so. To add, I didn’t know that the number of spikes matters for different running sports. This was very informative. I’ll relay this article to my family member who is planning on doing track and field in H.S. I’m sure he’ll find this article to his advantage.

    I never realized that people who participated in track events wore spiked shoes. I always assumed they wore regular running shoes. It does make sense after reading about it, and I can definitely see the benefit in them, especially for cross country running. Can you clarify how Dathan Ritzenhein cut his foot? I do not understand how a new pair of spikes can cause you to cut your foot.

      About Dathan Ritzenhein. He changes the shoes shortly before the Olympics. I take time to adjust shoes and get used to them—your need to give them time to adjust, both for your legs to gets used to it. And too, to fit the legs. Otherwise, it can make a stress factor if you just put it on and run. Give it some time to run lightly in it before.
