I have thrown the discus for the past 30 years and coach the discus as well. Whenever a parent asks, I always point to my own pair of Zoom Rotational shoes and tell them that these are the shoes that you want to buy for your child. They are the best throwing shoes you will find. In college, we were sponsored by another brand and I was forced to use those other shoes for a while, but I always went back to my Nike shoes during the summers when training back at home. It your are unsure if you should get the rotational shoes rather than the less expensive Shot/Disc shoes Nike offers, I would go with these rotational shoes unless your child only throws the shot put using the glide technique. You will want these shoes if your child throws the discus or uses the spin technique while throwing the shot put. These are designed specifically for spinning. The SD throwing shoes will be more helpful than basketball shoes or other athletic shoes, but they do not perform as well as these zoom rotational shoes. So if you can afford to pay a little more for these, then it is definitely worth the splurge to get the right tool for the job. As far as comparing these to other brands, I noticed that other brands have softer, thinner soles. One even had dimples on the sole for traction, but that sort of defeats the purpose when you are spinning because you want a hard, smooth surface to help with your speed. It makes it much easier to spin that way. You would not need the traction if you have good technique and are balanced through the throw. These shoes also last a very long time. Buying them freshman year lasted me through my senior year in high school and I practiced more than anyone I knew. The only reason I am not giving these shoes 5 stars is because the color options are too ugly for my tastes. I am going to hold off on replacing my shoes I've used for the past 5 seasons to see what the options are going to be like next year.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Shoe was as advertised, do not make the mistake I made by thinking hte pink on the shoe made these women's sizes. They are still sized as mens. My daughter wears a 9 so she got a 7.5.
