ADI­DAS

adi­das adizero Javelin

Price: £139.99

Stock­ist: adi­das.co.uk

Light­weight, yet pow­er­ful and sup­port­ive, these javelin-spe­cific spikes are fea­ture-packed to en­hance per­for­mance. The semi­boot con­struc­tion pro­vides enough sup­port for even the most pow­er­ful of launches and has a mid­foot strap to lock the foot into place. The four rear­foot spikes help brake the foot on the ini­tial plant to de­liv­ery and the seven fore­foot spikes fur­ther aid con­trol. A tex­tured out­sole adds dura­bil­ity and wraps the sole with an abra­sion-re­sis­tant toe­cap for pro­tec­tion when the rear

foot drags.

adi­das adizero Throw­star

Price: £69.99

Stock­ist: adi­das.co.uk

These shoes fea­ture a wrap­around sole to pro­vide smooth and ef­fi­cient move­ment across the cir­cle. The out­sole uses a tex­tured car­bon rub­ber to in­crease grip and dura­bil­ity. And a soft heel col­lar en­sures com­fort through­out the throw, while the syn­thetic up­per holds

the fore­foot se­curely in place.

NIKE

Zoom Ri­val SD 2

Price: £60.00

Stock­ist: nike.com

These throw­ing shoes ben­e­fit from a high-abra­sion rub­ber out­sole which pro­vides high wear­ing trac­tion for fast throw­ing (ro­ta­tional or glide) and wet con­di­tions. The out­sole ex­tends and over­laps the up­per to in­crease tor­sional rigid­ity and dura­bil­ity whilst the rub­ber toe tip of­fers fur­ther pro­tec­tion and dura­bil­ity. As with the SD4 a Vel­cro strap helps to se­cure the

foot in place.

Zoom SD 4

Price: £79.99

Stock­ist: nike.com

The durable wrap-around rub­ber out­sole pro­vides a per­fect sur­face for ro­ta­tional throw­ers in both the shot and dis­cus events whilst the re­in­forced no-sew up­per of­fers pro­tec­tion and sup­port of the foot and adds dura­bil­ity. The broad mid­foot Vel­cro strap pro­vides more se­cu­rity to en­sure no slip oc­curs in the shoe when throw­ing.
