umm. asics are awsome shoes for parkour. just dont get these. get a decent pair of crosstrainers. not soccer shoes.

Those aren't soccer shoes.  And those would be perfect grip wise.  But if you ever plan to walk on concrete its not a good idea to get track shoes.  Asics are good though.

Your saying those big metal spikes would wear down quickly?  Also if you never left grass with them like I said in my post then it wouldn't be a problem.

How often do you do all of your parkour in the grass? Any shoe with spikes would be no good for parkour, look for a good cross-trainer or trail running shoe. You won't be disappointed.

the issue with track shoes would be the same i have heard about the nike prestos. they are made with very thin fabric on the top of the shoe and you will basically rip through them quickly.

okay guys, im mos def a crosscountry and track runner, and yes these are definately racing spikes, they'd work for tracks and grass crosscounty courses.

just this saturday i ran a crosscountry race in my spikes (5K), and i had replaced the spikes that very morning (yes, you have to replace them often), and there was probably a total of 700 meters of concrete in the race, and the spikes were dulled from 3/8 inch down to nubs.  these shoes would be atrocious for Parkour that is not in a pure woodlandy environment, and even then, they might get stuck in wood.

take the above advice and go for crosstrainers.

As of now Asics are my favorite.  I have the gel kanbarra's

and I love them.  Good overall parkour shoe in my opinion.  I also just got a pair of gel solutions which I love too.

  In my opinion you can't really go wrong with either of them.
