These, look, perfect?

Not entirely sure, but I think they should be called DMX Barrier Wall Runner Men's

The padding design is terrific; the heel has a bit of extra padding, while the front has a nice thick sole surrounded by the abrasive rubber with a raised patch of rubber(separated with grooves for flexibility) on the forefoot.

While the toe has a piece of leather to act as guard.

Not sure of it's feel, but that fabric looks soft and comfy on the ankle.
Price rather moderately(75 at Footlocker, a bit more on zappos)

the grip may look good, but the rubber could suck ass. that's what happened when i bought some pumas and tried them out. i suggest finding them in a store so you can try them on and see for yourself before buying, unless you will just use them as normal shoes or something

To me, they look far too heavy.  An elevated heel doesn't help you in Parkour, either.  At best, it'll make walking more comfortable if you're still heel-striking when you walk.

Mike, I just ordered a pair of those on Friday, and they came the next day with a personal note from the owners of Revel Sports! I think they're my new favorite company. :P

I love them! They look awesome, they fit my feet really well, they're breathable, flexible and they have decent support (Well, I'm not sure how it compares to other crazy hi-tech shoes, but it's tons better than I'm used to! [barefoot or skate shoes]). I also love how the grip continues over the arch for some extra security. My only complaint is that the grip is kind of funky at first... there are tons of little bumps all over the bottom that I think might hinder more than they help, but those wear away pretty quickly from general use. Great shoes! I'd definitely recommend them.

Those, look, perfect?

I really like the look of Inov-8 shoes, but I've never owned a pair.
