Tried out new shoes...
« on: June 19, 2010, 07:41:34 PM »
Hey guys. I made this post in "Consumer Whores", but as there were a solid amount of people asking me to make this post, I thought I'd put it in here so everyone could see it.

I recently got a hold of a pair of the new Innov-8 F-lite 230 PK shoes. Innov-8 is a pretty sweet brand that is stepping up to the plate, alongisde 5.10 and Kswiss, in the production of Parkour shoes. I was at a loss whether to buy the new 5.10 Chase's, and this new shoe, and since I already had two FiveTens, I wanted to give these a chance. I'm glad I did.

Here's the review I wrote in the shoe forum.

Here's the actual product, from their site.

It's a pretty sexy shoe, I'm thinking it just might start competing up there with the shoes we're all so familiar with.

Anyone else try this out as well?

If they had other colors, I'd buy 'em.

I wonder though, on the right side of your right foot, is there mesh below the toes. (I'm not sure if I showed you at the LVPK seminar but I've got quite a strange right foot.)

I just bought a pair of some tiger onisuka tigers from the local thrift shop for $8. They work great, breathe well, fit well, and seem to get balanced traction on all surfaces.



I've read a lot about most designer "PK" shoes. They seem pretty gimmicky to me.
