Welcome the newest member of the Altra family, the XC Golden Spike, bearing the same name as the celebrated transcontinental railroad landmark of northern Utah. The Golden Spike is a celebration and tribute to the sport and history of XC running. A 5-pin spike plate lets you experience optimal grip on the course, while a convenient sockless design and hydrophobic mesh allow air to flow and keeps moisture low. And don’t settle for the XC spike that “hurts the least”—ditch the cramped, tight XC spikes of the past and embrace a revolutionary new spike with FootShape comfort for extra toe splay and enhanced performance, so you can comfortably leave the competition in your dust.
*Due to the nature of the materials of the upper, you may experience some color migration.

1 review for Altra Golden Spike Unisex

  1. Leo

    The Altra Golden Spike is the only spike made according to the shape of a HUMAN FOOT. It is my favorite spike for racing both on the track and on XC courses. The spike fares well in both conditions, although it could be a hair lighter and have a thinner sole. I ran numerous PR’s in these, and I never once thought about what was on my feet. Meanwhile, the competitors of the Golden Spike make you cram your toes into some kind of pointed, ugly, alien shape. If you are a track and/or XC racer and care even the slightest bit about your feet, get the Golden Spikes.
