Yes, you can use the men's Nike Zoom HJ III spike for Triple Jump events as well. For jumping spikes, the shape of the spike plate is designed to give toe lift off and the spike configuration provides better grip in the front. What you might want to do, tho, is pick up a set of replacement 7mm spikes to switch out with the 9mm that are shipped with the shoe. I'm not sure if it is a regulation, but it seems the normal size to use for the Triple Jump is a 7mm length. Yet I suppose this could depend on personal preference if the option to use longer spikes is open to you. Your coach should know the restrictions.
