FIELD EVENT SPIKES
Nike Zoom Pole Vault 2
Stockist: nike.com A specialist pole vault shoe that combines protection and support for the foot for the run-up and plant. The full-length midsole offers cushioning and the spikes provide excellent traction. The slightly higher cut upper, together with the heel counter, holds the foot securely, and combines with the laces and Velcro straps to lock the foot into an optimised position.
Nike Triple Jump Elite
The demands of the triple jump with the impact forces during the phases means protection is paramount. Full-length cushioning in these spikes delivers that, while a lightweight but supportive upper completes the package. The brand’s Flywire system incorporates a Velcro midfoot strap which locks the foot in place and maximises power transference across the three phases.

Nike’s long jump offering offers more of a sprint spike feel compared to the adidas option and is slightly less rigid. The shoes have a narrower fit also. The spikes have a Velcro fastening to ensure a secure fit and the no-sew upper has a zip-concealedtongue over the laces to reduce sand build-up.
