Comments about Mens Brooks Mach 18 Cross Country Shoe:
My son is a serious high school XC athlete. He liked the fit of the Brooks Mach 18 and raced well in them, but after the first race we noticed that two of the spikes were leaning, likely due to the stress of some hard surfaces on the course and a weak sole plate to secure the spikes. We returned this pair and received an identical pair in exchange. The shoe held up fine during a race on a golf course, but there was a short section of asphalt on the next race and it was enough to cause the same problem. Several spikes are now leaning because the threaded socket is not secure enough in the sole plate. At this point, I think we have to keep the shoes so he will continue to run in them. Unfortunately, it is now very difficult, if not impossible, for us to replace the spikes when they wear down. My advice would be to purchase the spikeless version or to only use the spiked version with very short spikes. The spikes that come with the show are too long for any hard surface. Brooks needs to reinforce their sole plate, perhaps with carbon fiber. Btw, my son has several teammates with the same shoe and the same issue.
