Track spikes have always been covered in creative colorways. It seems that considering that athletes perform for such short amounts of time, manufacturers want to make the most of that speedy performance with bright, eye-catching color combinations.

The latest track shoe from Saucony to receive a new head-turning colorway is the Saucony Shay XC2. The combination of Blue, Black and Vizipro Orange makes for a spike that’s not only great to look at but also carries an aggressive attitude that is backed up with performance. Utilizing a mesh upper that is lightweight and breathable, on top of an SSL EVA midsole and XT-600 carbon rubber outsole, the Shay XC2 is fast and cool. With its 6 spike configuration, it’s capable of providing traction in any weather conditions. The 6.9 ounces that it weighs, keep it on par with the lightest spikes available.
