Abstract

Aims
To compare plantar patterns between training and spikes shoes in young sprinters.

Methods and results
Eleven athletes performed two trials of 2 × 60 m maximal speed with training and spikes shoes, respectively. Contact area was significantly smaller with spikes in total and under the toes; pressure and force were significantly higher with spikes under the forefoot mainly in medial and lateral.

Conclusions
Wearing spikes shoes, higher loads are applied mainly under the 1st and the 2nd metatarsal heads. This may have relevance in order to clarify the mechanisms of injuries like metatarsalgia or stress fractures of the forefoot.
