Women's Track Shoes

What is track?

Track and field or track and field athletics, is a collection of sports events that involve running, throwing, and jumping.  On this page we will be discussing footwear for the "track" portion of track & field (the running portion).  The track events are the foot racing events, which include sprints, middle- and long-distance events, race walking and hurdling, are won by the athlete with the fastest time.

Track shoes are exceptionally light, some shoes weighing less than five ounces (142 grams) each, half the weight of many standard running shoes.

Track races can be either outdoor or indoor.  The type of shoe to be worn is often based on the track surface.  An all-weather running track is a rubberized artificial running surface for track and field athletics. It provides a consistent surface for competitors to test their athletic ability unencumbered by adverse weather conditions. Historically, various forms of dirt, grass, sand and crushed cinders were used for racing tracks. Many examples of these varieties of track still exist worldwide.

Track spikes, or just spikes, are racing shoes used by athletes when racing on the track. Some spikes are designed for longer-term training on tracks, but generally the shoes are used for racing. The term "spikes" can also refer to track shoes featuring such protrusions, though these are technically called pins. Spikes are similar to studs, which are used for team sports, although generally smaller and with a sharp point. Track Spikes are shoes to provide a bit of extra grip to the track.  They help provide traction & explosive performance for runners. Track spikes for men and women should deliver a lightweight feel, support and traction.
