Comments about Mens Brooks Mach 18 Spikeless Cross Country Shoe:

I wanted to get into track training, but felt I was too new to get spiked shoes. These seemed like a nice way to ease myself into things. Now, as someone who has never worn track shoes or knows what they should and shouldn't feel like, I'm not sure how helpful my review will be. But here goes...

Right off the bat, they fit snug. But then again they're supposed to (right?). I had to buy three pairs before I found the right size. My normal running shoes are 8.5/9 depending on the brand, but I had to go up to a 9.5 before these felt ok.

The first "issue" I encountered was on my first wear when I put them on without socks. I ran a few 400s and after the third I started to get some serious pain in my right foot, specifically the two smallest toes. Pulled the shoes off... blisters! Lesson learned there. I solved that problem by buying some small athletic tape, and now I wrap both feet and the two smallest toes before I put them on. No more pain or rubbing, problem solved.

Aside from that, these shoes feel great. Although I will caution anyone out there like me who is starting out on the track: shoes like this will destroy your calves. Track shoes are meant to keep you on the balls of your feet (forefoot), so naturally your calves are doing a lot of work during intense workouts to keep you moving. Be sure to stretch and roll out your calves afterward otherwise you'll be sore for days. On the plus side, your calves will start to feel huge after a few workouts, and regular or long runs on the road or other hard surface won't feel as tough.
