    Toe shoes

    I just bought my first pair of toe shoes and was thinking about using them for sparring. Does anyone have an experience with them? Horror stories welcome.

    Thanks for trying Saint Sleaze, but all I found in that post was alot about running and an enlightening diagram of the female brain.

    They aren't much different than sparring barefoot.. I have Vibrams, and they have too much grip for me to use on training mats. They do alright on grass.

    Which "toe shoes" did you get?

    As far as I know, the only ones worth a damn are made by Vibram.

    I have Adipure Trainers. I tried them out today and they worked out alright. It was kind of like fighting barefoot only my feet weren't cold. I guess I'll have to see how long they last.

    I agree that Vibrams have way too much grip for use in MA. My opinion, might as well just go barefoot. However I wear my Kso treks everyday for most everything else. I personally found that the treks hold up allot longer if you're using them for everyday use.

    So these. I hadn't seen these, will have to find some in person. It looks like they've got a padded/raised heel, which is bad. The point of toe shoes is to only have enough material between your feet and the ground to prevent damage, because your body naturally absorbs the impact of running if you're doing it correctly.

    Those look pretty sweet, but what I love most about the vibrams is their KSO models. They have have a strap system that completely locks your foot into the shoe.
