Racing flats

Racing flats are suitable for track and field, cross country and road racing. They differ from trainers in that they have relatively little support and little to no heel lift, as well as having a shallow tread on a long-lasting sole. With the smaller amount of support and cushioning in comparison to other running shoes, these are typically not recommended for those just starting their running training, or those who have not built up sufficient leg and/or foot strength. For more experienced runners, however, racing flats are invaluable as their lack of weight allows for much quicker running than normal trainers would.
