    Parkour Shoe Reviews

    When it comes to your training, shoes are an essential choice. From barefoot parkour training all the way through to the Caddilac of freerunning shoes the $150 K-SWISS Ariake III's, American Parkour members, sponsored athletes, affiliates, Tribe members and staffers have put them all to the test. We've gone through more shoes than a year's worth of marathons! When it comes to testing shoes, few activities will put them through the rigors what the likes of Parkour and freerunning will do to a pair of sneakers! Have a shoe you'd like us to review (be careful, we're brutal to them), send it our way!
