Saucony Havok XC2 Spikeless $75
The Havok is appropriately named, a shoe for all out running, as fast as you can across the countryside. This update is complete, with an edgier look - though the function remains the same, as it should be. The upper is a closed mesh with welded overlays supporting the fit, the jet black colorway exuding stealthy speed. The booty construction secures the ankle and keeps the sloppy stuff on the outside. The midsole is a sliver of foam to give a modest amount of protection to the foot without adding unnecessary extra material and weight to the shoe. The outersole is a lugged solid rubber, which is thin and flexible, its chevron pattern enhancing the grip. The result is a Cross Country performer that moves as fast as you can go.
Sizes: Men 7-13,14; Women 5-11,12
Weight: Men 5.3 oz. (size 11); Women 4.4 oz. (size 8)
Fit: snug heel and ankle (booty construction), close forefoot
