The right track spikes help you take on every mile with confidence. Keep in mind these factors when making your purchase:
- Track spikes should be lightweight and breathable. Textile uppers and lightweight overlays ensure extra bulk never gets in the way of your time. Mesh or perforated paneling allows for cooling airflow.
- Track spikes come with spiked or spikeless outsoles. Many women’s track spikes commonly come with five or six stud configuration and lugs for better grip. Flexible outsole plates promote the natural mechanics of your foot’s gait cycle.
- What’s inside your cleat counts too. Textile sockliners help wick away perspiration, while lightweight foam cushioning disperses and absorbs impact to keep you feeling great through the final lap.
Next, consider the event in which you’re competing—track spikes are specially optimized for different activities. Sprinting spikes are typically lightweight with no heel and a flexibility plate to promote natural motion. Middle-distance runners might choose a shoe with a small cushioned heel and small forefoot spike plate.
Distance runners often opt for shoes with fewer spikes along the outsole, but added cushion in the insole. Many hurdlers use a sprint or middle-distance spike. Throwers should go for a shoe that maximizes stability in their event.
