Training a lot on hard spikes can result in injuries. A (competition) running shoe provides more support and cushioning. We can convert it to a spike. To do this, the rubber outsole on the forefoot is removed and replaced with a spike plate. This fitting is possible on both new and used (still solid) running shoes.
Is the rubber on your throwing spikes starting to wear out? This can be solved by vulcanization. This creates a new layer of rubber on the spike.
In this process, 6 fixed studs (for multi stud shoe) are ground away and in their place are threaded for interchangeable studs. This way you turn 1 pair of shoes into an “all season” model with optimal stability. Just adjust the interchangeable studs to suit the terrain.
To avoid loosening of the sole, it is best to stitch preventively. In the process, the sole is additionally stitched into the upper.
If lacing is not the best option for you, we can add velcro closures. The number of closures is done by mutual agreement and also depends on the technical possibilities. (Not all shoes allow velcro placement).
With lump formation at the back of the heel bone (Haglund exostosis), a firm heel cap can cause irritation. To reduce pressure and friction pain, part of the (hard) heel cap can be removed (cut away).
Friction from the toes can damage the upper (mesh) of the running shoe. A leather tip prevents further tearing.
In running shoes, we regularly see damage on the inside of the heel cap. If wear causes irritation or friction, this can be remedied by lining the heel cap on the inside with leather.
In cases of a stiffened big-toe joint (Hallux Rigidus) or reduced mobility of the ankle joint, a wrap-around bar in the shoe can provide better settlement. The unwinding bar is placed in the midsole of the shoe. This makes the sole slightly convex, which makes unrolling easier.
In exceptional cases, due to composition of the sole or use of materials, placement of an unwinding bar is technically not possible.
This is adjusting shoes for leg length discrepancy and is possible with most shoes*. To do this, the shoe is expertly cut in the midsole, raised with EVA and glued back. Cutting open does not negatively affect the shoe.
*In exceptional cases, due to composition of the sole or use of materials, an elevation is technically not possible.
