Profile of the Adidas Jumpstar
Use - Fashioned specifically for jumping, the Adidas Jumpstar is a reliable track spike that can perform in a variety of jumping events. With the shoe’s componentry, it is suited for long jump, triple jump, high jump, and pole vault.
Spike Type - For a maximized surface grip, this Adidas track and field shoe is equipped with pyramid spikes. A set of six of these spikes is geared to the forefoot of the shoe’s spike plate for enhanced propulsion. These come in ¼-inch in length.

Complementing the already excellent traction-producing component of the shoe- Adiwear outsole- is its TPU spike plate. Aside from aiding the shoe’s pyramid spikes, the plate enables efficiency and speed.
Another integral element of the shoe is its molded EVA midsole. It is responsible for the Jumpstar’s resilient cushioning.
