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

This shoe is made specifically for those throwing with spinning styles.

A hooked strap over the toes help to stop your feet moving sideways during the build up to the throw.

No spikes this time, but a hard sole lengthens the life of the shoe.

And the circular grooving on the balls of the feet helps with the spinning motion of the athlete.
