I watched some videos of PK'ers and freerunners using Vibrams. Definitely seem like a good fit for the activity.
I wonder if most favor more supportive footwear or this minimalist approach.

Yeah I bought my V5F KSO's for parkour and haven't looked back.

What we look for in a shoe is an extremely thing sole of cushioning, that way when you press off the ground to jump it presses back right away without compression/ hesitation.

Second would be grip, alot of guys turn to stealth rubber which is used in Rock climbing shoe company's like 5.10.

Vibram is not far off with Grip though especially on the VFF's with the sipes and singular piece for the bottom of the shoe. No bullshit 20 piece Grip that wears down, rips off or gets rocks stuck between compression pads.

Bottomline I love em, and If I didn't need to put on a suit to do sales I wouldn't take them off.

I could see more Traceurs enjoying the bikila over the sprints. I know I just around quite a lot on trails when running and the Trek's are amazing for off-road...I think the Bikila's would be a happy medium.

A question as a traceur. I am thinking of getting either the Komodo Sport, Bikila or LS, or the KSO. I'm not sure which is best for parkour. I only really care about the grip and ground feel. So which is best for forward and lateral movements (going up and along walls), and feel for rails and stuff. Thanks

What do you guys use nowadays when the Sprints are discontinued?
I'm thinking EL-X. The other ones are just too bulky for me, and I like the amount of breathability in the EL-X.
