Brooks Mach 12 XC Flat – Preview Video from Running Warehouse

Just found this preview video on Running Warehouse about the soon to arrive Brooks Mach 12 spikeless cross country flat. I know that aesthetics are a terrible reason to choose a shoe, but Brooks has hit a home run with these in my opinion, and it looks like the structural design will meet my preferences as well. The Mach 12 will likely be the next pair added to my rotation – more to come later…

    You’re right–it looks like a great shoe. Seems to have a minimal heel, although the reference (in the video) to “cushion” in the heel means the heel might not be as minimal as possible. Still, if I had a pair in front of me I’d want to put ‘em on RIGHT NOW!

  2. Are you sure it has enough toe spring? It looks like you might actually be able to touch your toes to the ground when standing straight in those.

      It’s a XC flat, so the toe spring is not atypical – in my experience you don’t notice this much while on foot. If you have spikes on the toe, my presumption is that the upturned toe prevents them from catching the ground during foot swing – check out the spiked picture here: link to brooksrunning.com
