    In fact, that trick is so old hat why are we even discussing this?

    As someone who runs about in giant boots most of the time, I think their value as a kicking aid is possibly over-stated.
    Yes, you get a harder toe than with sneakers and that is going to make pointed round kicks do even more Bonus Damage. However, the extra weight of a pair of combat boots or motorcycle boots starts hitting a point of diminishing return, where it begins seriously slows down your kicks, which in turn eats off some of that Bonus Damage. The loss of ankle flexibility can **** up your form, too; it's harder to get on the ball of your base foot to rotate smoothly, for example.
    No, in my experience, T3h Deadliest FootWar are whatever those fucking dress shoes that come with rental tuxes are. They're lightweight, don't restrict mobility, and the toes are made of fucking adamantium or something. I've bruised myself just trying to put on a pair of those sons of bitches.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    Stop right there, son.

    I've been wearing steel toe lineman's boots to the party since 1991, there ain't **** you can tell me about Frankenstein Footwear I haven't already experienced first hand.If you find them cumbersome, get stronger!

    Those rental shoes are th3 r34l deadly though! Holy crap! If I ever need to Dim Mak someone I'll make them put on a pair of those and go dancing. That's like a genuine, time delay, distance death technique.

    JKD was designed for use with shoes, I tried to post some videos but it didnt work. Lots of side kicks, and oblique kicks to the shins and knees, in combos of 2 or 3.

    one thing I have noticed about TKD kickboxers, is they dont realy seem to combo kick the legs much. I would have though it easier to do the TKD combos at the legs vs the torso and the head.

    When looking for boots to kick the **** out of someone with, all you really need is the steel toe - everything else is just decoration. ;)
