New Parkour Tabi
« on: October 30, 2010, 09:43:01 AM »
So I was looking at a website that was in blackbelt magazine to see what kind of clothes they have. Well the answer is expensive. But today I found out that they have these they are fairly new to the market and they look well I'll let you decide....








and the grip




So they look ok. Very steam punkish... They are for a very particular group of people but the grip looks great. I also like that you can give them the exact size of your foot. They are very pricey though. Here is the original webpage. Take a look at some of he other stuff too. If only for laughs.

EDIT!!!!: the black looks much better!!

These shoes are hideous, however they look like they are pretty reliable. I'll look further into them when someone throws up a review.

You can get other colors and materials so they look much better then the copper crap. I might look into them after a review because of the custume sizing.

I'm debating on ordering a pair strictly to see if they're up to the hype they put themselfs too..

The procuct looks useful, and the grip looks astounding but 200 dollars for shoes from a company no one really knows ? It's kind of sketchy.

@Kendy Where did you get yours for $40? I'd be interesting in trying them out if I can find them for about that much.

mmm I could try to hunt em down... I know they are now a hidden object on site I bought them from (because there were so few left), BUT I'll snoop around for the good of the community

Nobody look at that link. That review is for something completely different. Only similar in the split toe. These are from a designer company called ayya. The grip on these shoes is quite good on everything. Downside is that if you step in mud its hell to get out of the cracks. Minimal cushioning. Split to helps with balance. I dont have these exact ones cuz they are FUGLY!!! I have a pair of their Tall Spiral tabi which make you feel like a freaking ninja!! These look like they would restrict ankle ROM but they do have cheaper shorter tabi. One they just came out with looks like Faiths from mirrors edge. Their tall tabi were worn by all the romulans in The new Star Trek movie. All around good shoes. I train in mine when it gets cold and snowy. These shoes look amazing btw. Well not these all the others look amazing. Definitely check the company out.
