Ultra-lightweight performance built for long-distance track events, the New Balance LD5K v8 offers everything distance runners need to achieve peak performance on race day.
Featuring a semi-aggressive spike plate with all-new geometry, this distance spike continues to deliver a snappy ride while also providing a high level of traction as you accelerate into the turns. The spike retains the same 4 pin spike layout and midsole of its predecessor giving you a thin layer of cushioning to get you through everything from the 3k to the 10k.
On the upper, the spike offers an updated knit material for a lightweight yet supportive fit with a bootie construction. A versatile distance spike that will excel in the 3,000 to 10,000m, the New Balance LD5K v8 delivers the traction and cushioning you need to run your best when the gun goes off.
