In my opinion, the best all-around shoe hands down. If I had to recommend a shoe with no more information, it would be this one.

The sole is reasonably flat, a little more contoured than a normal walking shoe. The ball of the foot has a soft, smooth area that feels kind of like vinyl and is rounded about the same as a beach ball. The rest of the sole has some texture. The contour is actually stable and fairly comfortable to walk in, I've had Nikes and those hurt after a while as well as make me lose balance while winding up. Runs a half size large.

This supports multiple styles of discus or rotational shot. Pure pivoting type throwers who really turn the foot in the middle (Lars Riedel style) would do well with the smooth ball-of-foot area in the front. It has a contact area maybe the size of a ping pong ball. The outer edge is rougher and more grippy and also works for people who roll their feet (Robert Harting, he uses his right foot very differently from Riedel, he rolls onto the toe) and/or drive across the ring (Mac Wilkins).
There is enough texture to do glide shot, but the less expensive shoes are better for glide.
I don't do hammer but the sole profile is stable and reasonably flat, with good grip around the outside and a smooth ball of foot. Hammer throwers take from that what you want, but I think it would be good for hammer.

For strict pivoters there are other shoes like Nikes that turn slightly better, and for strict shot put gliders, shoes with more texture are better. I think the Adidas are a jack of all trades though, and better than "jack".

Quality-wise, the sole holds up pretty well, but the back above the heel is uncomfortable and kind of cuts into the Achilles. Shoelaces are thin and not good quality. Easy enough to replace but still. The rest of the shoe has also held up well, no falling apart.

I've had Asics and Nike throwing shoes, and these are by far my favorite.
