What track spikes are used for what?

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.

Do hurdlers wear spikes?

When it comes to performance on the track, footwear is perhaps the most essential article of clothing for a hurdler. Track and field runners choose from a myriad of lightweight, breathable shoes, but most competitive hurdlers opt for shoes with 1/8-, 1/4- or 3/8-inch track spikes to increase traction.
