Getting the right fit
Size always comes down to personal preference as some like them snugger than others. Ideally, like all spikes, they should fit closer than your standard training shoes and they will feel narrow so that they wrap your feet for a secure lockdown. Most spikes do come up extra small in size, so we recommend sizing up from your standard shoe size. If you have any questions we are here to help, just get in contact.
