Athletics footwear: high jump shoes
Throwing shoesTrainersJumps/pole vault shoeSprint shoesHigh jumpJavelin shoeLong distance shoe

The high jump shoe has a much thicker sole.

It gives maximum support and comfort for this physically demanding event.

It will be light and flexible helping you to get that speed over a short distance before the jump.

The spikes in the shoe are all important - the front spikes help you gain speed in the run-up.

And the four spikes in the heel provide the grip when you take-off.
