Opinions on Jump Spikes - Elite

Unread postby born2fly » Thu Jul 25, 2019 3:42 am


I'm looking at buying new jump spikes. It's very hard to find and test jump spikes, so thought I would see if anyone can give me some insight with their own experience.

I've been wearing the Nike Triple Jump Elite spikes for the past few years and think it's time to change. I've had quite a few issues with achilles problems over the years, so I want to get a good spike with a nice heel).

The jumps spikes I am looking at are:
- Nike PVII zoom (I tried the threes and they felt terrible on my achilles, but these seemed okay).
- Adidas Adizero Jump
- Mizuno Triple jump spikes (I liked the feel, it had a good roll off/was reactive, but am concerned it could cause issues with the achilles, as it seems more aggressive with a bigger drop).

I was also curious about the following shoes, but I haven't been able to find them in a store to try.
- Puma evoSPEED TripleJump4
- Saucony Soarin J2
