Features of women's spiked shoes for athletics
Much more than just sports shoes, spiked shoes bring together several features to run comfortably and in the best conditions on the athletic track. Athletic shoes are made up of lightweight components that allow you to gain dynamism and speed. Their main difference from running shoes is their spiked outsoles. These are designed to provide better grip and traction on different terrains. For beginners, it is important to know that wearing track and field spikes takes some getting used to. In order to get used to this type of shoe and to avoid injury, weekly use is recommended.
How to choose your women's athletic shoes?
A good choice of women's pointe shoes depends on the right size. Your running shoes should be the right size: not too small to avoid being too tight, nor too big to avoid chafing and blisters. It is important to remember that your feet swell during your efforts. When you run, your feet will tend to lengthen when they touch the ground. This is why it is recommended to choose a women's athletic shoe that is half an inch or an inch larger than the exact size of your feet. For maximum comfort, opt for models with mesh uppers that ensure better breathability.
The different types of women's spikes
Track and field spikes differ depending on the sport. For track races, spikes are needle-shaped and measure between 5 and 9 mm. Cross-country spikes are pyramid-shaped to ensure optimum grip.
For sprint events (60m, 100m, 400m, 110m hurdles, 400m hurdles), choose spiked shoes with a rigid sole to ensure a good grip. If the size of the spikes depends on each person, a length of 9 mm will give you a better grip.
Track and Field Spikes for Middle Distance Running
For middle-distance races (800m to 10,000m), we offer women's track and field shoes with soft soles and good cushioning in the heel area. Our selection includes models with 6 and 9 mm spikes to suit your needs.
Track and Field Spikes for Vaulting
For pole vaulting and long jumping, you can choose women's spikes with EVA foam soles that will absorb the shock of your landing. The length of the spikes used for jumping is 12 mm.
Cross Country Spikes
Athletic shoes suitable for cross-country running should offer good cushioning and have a more or less rigid sole. For the size of the spikes, a length of 9 mm is suitable for hard ground. For soft and muddy terrain, you should choose longer spikes, e.g. 15 mm.
