adizero Jump­star All­round

Price: £69.99

Stock­ist: adi­

Whether it’s the hor­i­zon­tal or ver­ti­cal jump dis­ci­plines you are tak­ing part in, these all-round per­form­ers will add power to your take-off/ take-offs thanks to their rigid spike plate which ex­tends into the mid­foot. The syn­thetic fore­foot sec­tion of the up­per pro­vides sup­port and has a lock-down strap, while the mesh rear­foot helps keep you cool in com­pe­ti­tion.

adizero Long Jump

Price: £140

Stock­ist: adi­

Adi­das favours a slightly stiffer shoe com­pared to other spe­cial­ist long jump shoe man­u­fac­tur­ers. The spike is de­signed for pow­er­ful fore­foot run­ning and to “roll” through the take-off whilst pro­vid­ing max­i­mum sta­bil­ity. The shoes ben­e­fit from a seven-spike plate and the front two spikes are po­si­tioned slightly fur­ther back from the front of the shoe – this com­bined with the over­all de­sign may re­duce the chances for marginal fouls as the shoe lifts over the plas­ticine.
