Sprint Spikes- What Are The Atributes of Good Sprint Spikes

By | September 30, 2012

Sprint Spikes

Sprint spikes are designed for the sprinter, these track spikes (just as their name implies), enables them to run very fast distances ranging from 100 meters to 400 meters.  These track shoes are also the same design needed for hurdlers and they enable the athlet to reach maximum speed very quickly for some events that may only have 10 to 50 second durations.  These track spikes are very light in weight , are low top in style and have little to no cushioning, especially none in the heel.  Sprinters tend to run on their toes so the shoe taper is constructed to keep the athlet …literally… on their toes. The track spikes are most ridgid as they need to be very agresive to develope maximum speed in short time intervals.
