Rated 4 out of 5Â by Emma Good throwing shoe
I just purchased my second pair of Unisex Unleash SD. I find that they perform well for my spin in both shot and discus, though ultimately do experience wear and breakdown. I was, however, able to complete a full season last year with my first pair. They fit well, have good ventilation and are very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 Love these SHOES for HAMMER
I have taken almost 10,000 throws on them and they are holding up nicely. I am going to get new ones soon because they maybe only got 2,500 throws left in them. But they have nice grip when it is wet out and are very fast which keeps my knees from bothering me after a long practice. If you want really nice fast shoes buy these!

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent Discus Shoe
This shoe has a rigid sole, with a slightly turned up toe so that you naturally end up in the right position to spin. It's a very fast shoe when you're on the balls of your feet, but has some grip to the rest of the shoe. Would be good for discus, hammer, rotational shot. Probably not great for gliders. I chose to order a little snug and wear it without socks. Feels good. I've been away from throwing for several years and had been throwing in Merrill trail gloves. The difference is night and day. It's like my whole body suddenly remembered what the spin is really supposed to feel like. The first several throws I was all over the place because the shoes felt so fast, but very quickly muscle memory took over and my technique settled down. Great shoes if you're looking for the rigid/fast kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best Throw Shoes I've Tried!
One of my main problems as a spinner was landing on my heel in the middle of the ring. It caused problems with my knee and made it hard to get a good throw. I found these and the way they curve up at the toe really helps. I haven't dropped onto my heel since I started using them. They force you to have a better technique. They are a little weird to get used to at first but are great shoes.
