You should get yourself a couple "heel cups" to wear if you decide to jump in sprinting spikes. Sprinting shoes do not have much cushioning in them. If you do a lot of jumps in them, you may bruise your take-off heel when you hit the board to jump.

I used to long jump in track spikes, and I stuffed foam into my shoes. In those days it wasn't as easy to get the products that are available now. That would still work if the heel cups are hard to get or bother you.

Have a good season!
