Each field event features a different set of movements and therefore lends
itself to different styles of shoes. Discus, Shot Put and Hammer Throw
(or Weight Throw) have a similar rotational technique that means that
many throws shoes can be used across these throwing events. Throws Shoes
for Discus, Shot Put and Hammer Throw usually feature a soft rubber
sole that is perfect for the rotational movement required to maximise
distance. Beginners should be aware that some throws shoes feature a
raised toe which may help with the rotational movement but will take
some getting used to.
requires a specialised spiked shoe that usually has spikes in the
forefoot and heel areas to maximise grip so that an athlete can be
speedy and accurate. Javelin shoes also usually have higher heel cups to
support the thrower when they stop to launch the Javelin.
Long Jump Shoes and High Jump Shoes
Jump shoes and High Jump Shoes are similar to javelin shoes except they
dont feature heel spikes but the spikes are further back than in
running spikes to allow athletes to alter course at the last second or
handle harsh impacts that occur when jumping.
