BEST PARKOUR SHOES If youre looking for the best Parkour shoe there are a couple of things that should be taken into consideration certain items to look for along with other things to avoid. Sometimes the best shoes for training can be as small as 20 instead of a gimmicky Parkour particular shoe that can be over 200 rather than actually be that good for Parkour whatsoever. WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A PARKOUR SHOE Weight Ideally the shoe needs to be as light as you can when your running around daily that the less weight you carry the longer you are able to continue to prepare. Generally less added weight to the body is beneficial because it is going to enable more natural and completely free movement. Sole There are a couple of factors that need to be considered when looking at the sole of a shoe: Thickness Despite what some may think a thick one is not wise in a Parkour shoe. Thick soles can sometimes assist in promoting poor technique. Thick soles generally supply a lack of sensitivity between your toes and the surroundings you socialize with. This lack of sensitivity permits some people to try drops that theyre not yet ready for. Having thinner bottoms allows you to feel the effect of landings. This can be valuable as it compels you to keep correct technique so as to prevent injury. Design Shoes with a one piece only will be the most effective as they dont tear away in chunks as many soles that are glued together in segments have a tendency to do. Cases of a single bit soles

As beams like the ones in the image above wear down some of the individual parts of rubber displayed in red will rip off while some stay on exposing the cushioning that will wear through very fast and provide less grip. Most individuals have a tendency to want to avoid this. Arches Arches are more preferable when selecting a shoe these work as a security mechanism when performing precision landings. Occasionally when landing on an edge our feet slide forward by with an arch in the shoe you can shed the heels and the border of the landing tends to lock into the foot arch.The sole exception for this rule is when wearing a thin soled elastic shoe such as the Feiyue or even Dunlop volleys on account of the outstanding flexibility and sensitivity of these shoes it is possible to use the natural arch of your foot for safety. One thing to avoid is shoes that have hard plastic from the arches shown in the above picture in blue since this can cause slippage when climbing and if you happen to land on a metal rail with the tough plastic arch component it will permit you to easily slide. Compound The rubber which the sole is manufactured out of will normally affect how long the shoe lasts and its ability to grip. Softer compounds tend to supply more grip but wear down more quickly. While harder chemicals last longer their grip can be ineffective at times enabling you to slip back on arm jumps. Cost If money is no barrier then youre a lucky individual and you can afford to spend a lot of money on shoes that you will wear out fast. But if this isnt true then you need to carefully consider just how much you are spending on a shoe. If you are training quite a lot then you will most likely wear out the shoe fast. There is not any point to getting an expensive shoe that will last marginally longer than a cheaper one. SHOE RECOMMENDATIONS

Cheap thin bottoms good grip with the only drawback being the soft compound used for the only which means they wear away very quickly if you train specific techniques. Price: 20 -- 30AU Feiyues Similar to Dunlop Volleys but with a much thinner sole and a bit more expensive. If you are after a really light discreet shoe that allows great sensitivity and touch this is a great choice. But be warned theyre very minimal and offer very little help or padding in the only and can be tough to adapt to. They are often worn as martial art shoes using the Shaolin Monks being recognized to wear them. There are a few companies around who have made "Parkour Shoes" and generally these are not recommended and much better and more economical shoes can be found. It is recommend that you avoid the gimmicks and proceed with a few of the suggested sneakers above. Its getting increasingly harder and harder to find decent quality cheap Parkour shoes. The types and style also differ considerably between continents and countries. It is strongly suggested that you take the info from here and do your own research in the local region for something that fits within the specifications of a good shoe. There are now many more choices when it comes to minimalist running shoes. This is great in some respects for traceurs in that these shoes are often more durable than the sneakers mentioned above. That durability comes in a monetary cost however. When balanced out between how quickly you can wear the soles out on the many types of minimalist shoes the price does appear to balance out however. Different stylish shoes appeal to different people make sure you try them on and check out them at a shop before settling on a particular shoe. A Few of the choices available are: Merrell Trail Glove Likely among the very best for Parkour but it is also among the priciest. The lacing system allows the forefoot to spread and have liberty while the heel is secured in closely. The grip is good and the layout on the outer stops the shoe falling apart once you roll many shoes get a hole just behind the small toe in which the shoe presses the floor on rolls.

Although this has been all about shoes taking them off and coaching barefoot is quite beneficial. As discussed a fantastic shoe provides you good bit and sensitivity hinders movement as little as you can and boosts solid and elegant technique. Training barefooted gives one of the best feel for your surroundings allows for complete freedom of motion and compels you to get solid technique especially when it comes to landing. If you land poorly barefoot it will most likely hurt so it forces you to land with very good technique minimising impact. Whilst it is very hard to train all methods at a high level barefooted its very good to take off your shoes and train even if it is only sometimes. After you have a reasonable grasp of the techniques involved in Parkour it is a fantastic idea to begin doing some barefoot training. Just begin by taking off your shoes whilst you normally train and seeing how it feels. Make sure you approach your practice with the appropriate caution until you adjust. As your skill and experience training barefoot increases you can train broadly without your sneakers eventually being able to train chiefly barefoot.
