Spikes are tight, wrapped to cut, when racing. Not only that, walking normally in plated spikes is awkward and strains the achilles if you're not moving fast and carrying weight through the toes. They feel great when you're running 22sec 200 pace but as soon as you're done, they need to come off.
Definitely true. Sprint spikes are awkward and uncomfortable to walk in. Your toes are on a platform a half inch taller than your heel. It's the opposite of the normal toe drop in flats. It is like doing constant toe raises.
