Nike certainly has an array of products particularly shoes for those with an active sport lifestyle. Whether for basketball, tennis, football, track and field or other sports, Nike has got you covered. For those in track and field, mainly in high jump competition, Nike also has shoes designed for you.

This shoe features a textile upper with synthetic overlays to provide support in the key areas for jumping. Aside from the laces, this also has a midfoot strap to prevent the foot from slipping inside the shoe, thus keep it lock down over the footbed. And for added comfort, this also has light, responsive cushioning.
All the requirements needed for a high jump shoe are found on this Nike Zoom HJ III Track Shoe. This has 11 lightweight aluminum receptacles that are molded in a rigid full-length plate for aggressive traction. High Jump track shoes cannot exceed 11 spikes in the sole, and this Nike Zoom HJ III indeed followed the standard. Four of which are in the heel while seven are in the forefoot. This shoe then has tapered midsole for proper foot positioning at take off; and it’s finished with a full-length rubber wrap for traction on the apron.
