Your backpack may be loaded with reams of college-ruled paper and a forest worth of #2 pencils, but you’re not truly ready for back to school until you’ve got your cross country gear. Having the right spikes helps you train hard and run fast on race day, and nothing delivers like the Mach 14 and Mach 14 Spikeless. If you’re a high school runner who loves speed and lightweight shoes, you should give them a look.
The Mach 14 is worn by elite athletes, including Brooks ID member and triathlete Manuel Huerta. This super-light shoe will make the miles fly by faster than your summer vacation. Using minimal materials and advanced construction, these XC shoes weigh just 5.4 ounces, while the asymmetrical lacing wraps your arch for maximum security and comfort.
Look Good, Run Fast
Sure, practice isn’t a fashion show, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look good while you’re running fast. The Mach 14 retails for $70 and is available online and in stores now in both mens and womens styles. The Mach 14 Spikeless retails for $65.
