Initially, I'd thought that all types of spikes will fit on all types of spike shoes, but after reading this article
If you are buying track shoes with spikes, check the size of the spikes. Spikes that are too long will stick in the rubberized surface of the track more than smaller spikes, which can slow down your time. If the spikes are longer than what you need, ask the store clerk if the shoes come with a smaller spike size. (Source)
I'm now confused about that matter.
I'm sure that there are different types of spikes (for short-d / mid-d / long-d), and I'm also sure that there are different types of spikes (for short-d / mid-d / long-d),
so basically I was wondering does all types of spikes (short-d / mid-d / long-d) fit on all types of running spike shoes (short-d / mid-d / long-d)? If I have a spike shoe, I can be sure that any individual spikes that I will buy will be able to fit in that shoe right?
PS: I'm talking about metal spikes here.
