This list is primarily a list concerning new shoes that athletes propose to wear in international competitions which have been assessed by World Athletics to date. In short, shoes approved by World Athletics.

This is the core requirement under Rule 5 of the Technical Rules.

The assessment and whether a shoe is approved or not is determined by several different factors as set out in Technical Rule 5.13 and the Shoe Sole Thickness
Table to Rule 5.13.3.

List of compliant shoes approved by World Athletics (as at August 12, 2020)

This table has been presented to align with the Shoe Sole Thickness Table, and note that some athletes may choose to wear shoes manufactured for a specific
event in other events.

The list is not a complete list of every shoe that has ever been worn by an athlete. If a shoe is not on the list, it can be because a manufacturer has failed to submit
the shoe, it has not been approved or is an old model / shoe.

An old model / shoe is required to comply with Rule 5.13 and, as with any other rule, an athlete must comply with it. Athletes may be asked to complete a declaration concerning their old model / shoe prior to an event and, after the athlete has competed, the old shoe may be taken in by the Referee for further investigation by World Athletics.
