A Wide Toe Box Running Shoe With Zero Drop Platform
The Altra Golden Spike is a minimalist athletic shoe that can be used for both recreational and competitive running (as well as for hiking and golfing). This super lightweight shoe incorporates a wide toe box for natural toe splay and a flat sole from heel to toe to enable natural arch support.
Comes With Optional Spikes for XC Running
Possessing a sockless design and hydrophobic mesh upper, the Golden Spike keeps moisture levels in check and encourages airflow around your foot. This shoe comes with a built-in 5-pin spike plate, a bag of spikes, and a spike key that can turn it into the most comfortable cross-country (XC) running shoe ever constructed, though it works great as a road and trail running shoe without the optional spikes.
Low Stack Height, Compatible With Other Natural Footgear
With the lowest stack height of any Altra model (15 mm), the Golden Spike is a perfect option for runners and athletes seeking good ground-feel. This foot-healthy athletic shoe is compatible with Correct Toes toe spacers, Injinji toe socks, and Strutz foot pads or Pedag metatarsal pads. Each Altra Golden Spike shoe weighs about 6.5 oz.
Note: Due to the nature of the materials in the upper, you may experience some color bleeding during the first couple of uses.
