What is the best length for track spikes?

How many spikes do you need for track?

This Brooks has the same kind of woven upper that we love on the Elmn8, but everything underfoot delivers just a bit more comfort for track races up to 10,000 meters. The midsole doesn’t have a rigid carbon-fiber plate, and the spike plate is designed with just four pins—plenty for grip at long-distance speeds.
