I firstly bought these Soccer Shoes for their style and for indoor soccer a few years ago. They worked quite well, they were overall comfy, functional, and had wonderful style. Recently though, I essentially tore open the bottom of my K-Swiss Ariakes, so to do parkour I switched to these Soccer Cleats. Surprisingly, they were also great for parkour, really wonderful! It is not something many would assume, the lack of cushioning, hard sole etc. etc. But contrary to those facts, the hard sole provided enough grip to be functional, not as much as the Ariakes, but acceptable amounts. The thin sole also actually helped my form, having a thinner sole allows for better feel and results in a more refined technique. The cushioning problem also actually helps you, it points out the flaws in your running and landing and after a while you don't feel the shock of the hits. Also, these are built tough. The leather shows signs of wear and tear without yielding, the sole is solid and will cost us a lot of effort to wear down, I only recently broke these after almost 2 and a half years of wear, and that's when I was doing hard wall runs. It was really of high quality! And an added bonus, the leather keeps moisture out, so your feet don't get all wet when running after it rains. The pros and cons of these Soccer Shoes have been iterated many times already on the internet, so looking at them from a different perspective, as a traceur, these Soccer Cleats perform wonderfully. They are not real parkour shoes but they are amazing trainers and will not disappoint us.
