Nike Zoom Pole Vault 2

Price: £119.99

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

Price: £129.99

Stock­ist: nike.com

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 Zoom Long Jump 4

Price: Price: £100

Stock­ist: nike.com

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.
