Altra's brand new spikeless cross country racer is here! The Vanish XC is made to be light, fast and comfortable. The open mesh upper does not have traditional lace eyelets with allows for a variety of lacing patterns customized to your individual needs, or foot shape. The midsole is equipped with Max-LT™ cushioning for an incredible cushion-to-weight ratio and perfect response. The strategically placed rubber "spikes" on the outsole allow for extra traction just where you need it and keeps your shoe legal for non-metal spike races.
