How to Choose Parkour Training Shoes
Lightweight shoes also allow free movement and rolling of ankles. However, weight is often directly proportional to durability. Thus, extremely light weight shoes, may not last for long; whereas bulky shoes may restrict your movements and affect your pace. Hence, choose medium lightweight shoes that offers both durability and free movement.
Thick soles hinder the sensitivity of your feet with the environment, which may affect your landing. It may also lead to misjudgment of leaps, thereby resulting in injuries. Hence, it is best to buy shoes with thin soles only. Also, one piece soles resist better to wearing than soles in multiples pieces.
Parkour should be avoided in wet conditions due to unpredictable leaps and susceptibility to falls. A firm grip will not let you lose your balance and allow you to land on your feet correctly when you jump.
