When to choose a spiked running shoe?
Spikes are used when competing and training on tartan tracks or in cross country races.
1.- For running on the tartan track at paces equal to or less than 3 min/km. Or when the flying shoes are not as fast as the spikes.
2.- In middle-distance and long-distance track competitions (from 1,500 to 10,000 metres).
3.- State security forces and corps competitors in the 1,000m race, if they run at 3 minutes per km or less. If not, they can use flying shoes.
4.- For the jumping and throwing events there are specific shoes.

It is not recommended to use spikes for marathon or asphalt running athletes when they do quality series on the athletics track. It is always more advisable to use flying shoes, the ones you will use when competing.
Of all of them, the spiked shoes for cross country or cross-country are the most protective for the foot.
The outsole is more reinforced and incorporates more rubber lugs to provide some cushioning. The spikes are slightly deeper in the plate.
