The SONICSPRINT ELITE™ 2 spike is built for speed. It's recommended for competitive sprinters who want to take their racing to the next level. Part of the EUGENE pack, this colorway is representative of Oregon's running heritage. A molded nylon spike (pin) plate with added traction in the outsole helps improve grip, eliminating the need for a traditional spike (pin) configuration. This variation is also designed to make better contact with the ground to facilitate a quicker and more powerful stride. The upper is made of a proprietary material that's lighter than traditional upper fabrics, making this racing shoe lightweight yet durable. This also helps create a better foothold.
