Questions & Answers for Nike Zoom Rival D 6 - Men's

Question

Would these spikes be suitable for XC racing?

I was hoping to get a shoe that could double as a reasonably competitive track shoe, but also be used for XC races. The support will not bother me, as I generally race in very minimalist shoes anyway. I was just wondering if they would wear out quickly on off-road surfaces?

I am a bit skeptical of my answer because it could go either way. The men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike would be a decent choice for cross-country running because it is a very lightweight shoe. The back part of the outsole has a softer rubber compound that will provide grip on most surfaces, but the front toe off area is a harder plastic. Without the spike pins in place, this part of the shoe may not have as much traction on harder surfaces, and using the pins on rough surfaces will just wear them down quicker. So it will depend on the type of terrain you are running on. For grass, dirt, or gravel, this spike would probably work well for you. On concrete, maybe not so much. For pavement, you may want to check out the style of sku #53972008. The outsole on this shoe is the softer rubber and would probably provide better traction on pavement/asphalt rather than the spike pins.

The spike pins on the men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike are metal and should 'dig in' to the asphalt to a degree. Your body weight will be a factor with traction, and it may take a few pairs of spikes to find one that really works for you. Unfortunately, trial is sometimes the only way to find out.

The spike pins are removable on the men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike. If you think you have a wider foot than most, then I would suggest ordering a size 11.5. Otherwise a size 11.0 should work for a normal foot. This is assuming you wear a size 10.5 in a normal length track spike.

The men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike fits the same as the men's Nike Zoom Forever XC series in the length, but may feel a bit tighter in the width. If you have a wide foot, we recommend ordering a full size larger to compensate for this. Otherwise, a 1/2 size larger in both styles should be a good conversion for a normal fit. The men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike has good traction for non-rubber track designs.

Not really. The men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spike actually runs 1/2 size small, a whole size recommended if you have a wide foot. The men's Nike Free Run + 2 shoe we have stocked runs 'True to Size'.

Yes, the men's Nike Zoom Rival D 6 spikes can be used for sprints as well. The equipped 1/4" pyramid spike pins are generally used for all distances and can be used in jumping events as well.
