Sprint spikes are for short distances up to 400 m. They're flexible and they need to fit the foot closely. They don't have much heel support, because you sprinters spend most of your time on your toes, and they allow for maximum transfer of energy at every swift stride.
Spike shoes for longer distances are comfy by comparison. They're cushioned for comfort and to lessen the impact on your joints, and they give particular support to your mid-foot and heel.
Cross-country spikes are tough and rugged, as well as cushioned for support and stabilization, and their purpose is to provide traction and comfort in any terrain.
Field spikes come in a range of specialized designs that are intended to give throwers and jumpers the right kind of power and traction on the track and field.
