The javelin event requires three components: speed, technique, and strength. The athlete will need a shoe that can handle all three. Javelin shoes resemble other throwing shoes, except they have spike plates in the forefoot and heel for added traction. Javelin shoes generally come in a mid cut for more support during the approach and release of the javelin. At Eastbay, we carry a large selection of javelin shoes from trusted brand names like Nike, adidas, ASICS®, and more. When you start your approach, do it with confidence in a pair of javelin shoes from Eastbay!
Shot Put/Discus Shoes
Dedicated throwing shoes for shot put, discus, and hammer are different from other track shoes in that they don't have a spike plate. Instead, these throwing shoes will have a smooth bottom for the spin technique or a textured rubber outsole for better traction during the glide technique. At Eastbay, we carry great choices of throwing shoes from trusted brand names like Nike, adidas, ASICS®, and more. When you begin your spin or glide, do it with confidence in a pair of throwing shoes from Eastbay!
