2017 Cross Country

Saucony Kilkenny $65 Spike/$55 Spikeless

The Kilkenny is the oldest cross country model in the Saucony lineup, now in its 7th version.  The platform retains its heritage - and why not? It has been effective from its introduction because it is a sleek and efficient racing shoe.

New Balance XC 900v4 $90

The XC 900 has been New Balance’s top tier cross country racer. It has been a nice upgrade for the high school or collegiate  harrier - sleeker material than entry level without breaking the bank, and round 4 is a top down revamp.

Brooks Mach 18 Spikeless $90

Brooks’ Mach series of cross country racing shoes have provided excellent cross country performance, whether in spiked or spikeless models. Version number 18 is as good a product as any previous round.

Altra Golden Spike $90

The Golden Spike, introduced last fall, continues as a top quality cross country spike with the brand’s dual mantra of a zero drop profile and roomy toe. The upper is a ripstop minimesh supported by fused overlays, with a thin, sueded tongue and ankle collar.

ASICS Cross Freak 2 $85

Round two of the Cross Freak carries on the tradition established in its first round (and many versions of ASICS cross country spikes, spanning many decades).
