Parkour shoes UK
Quality freerunning footwear can be costly, so we of course want your JiYo Flows to last as long as possible. To secure maximum durability, we have made the outer sole of the shoe thicker than the ones found on other freerunning shoes. A new rubber suggested to us by our manufacturing partner allows us to do this without sacrificing flexibility in the shoe.
Our proprietary sole pattern is also designed with durability in mind. The surface of the sole has none of the large gaps of regular running shoes. This eliminiates the risk of destructive pebbles sticking in the sole. The absence of gaps also minimizes the number of places from which the sole can start tearing.
Through conversations with our athletes, we became aware of the need for comfort. When they tested the first versions of the shoes, they found that their feet got warm and tired in the shoes.
To solve that problem, we replaced the original canvas with a light, breathable mesh in all non-tension areas of the shoe. The mesh makes the shoes breathable and comfortable for you to wear all the way through your long training sessions.
Team JiYo started in 2002 as a group of freerunning and parkour enthusiasts, being the pioneers in Denmark.
The founders, Martin & Ilir have been gymnasts and dancers their whole lives, but after moving to the Danish capital Copenhagen they both felt limited in their movements.That's when they discovered parkour - the discipline of urban movement. Using the techniques of parkour and freerunning, the newly started team found that they could move across the cityscape with the same natural ease as they could in the practice rooms they were so accustomed to.
Since the team's infancy in the early 2002, it has grown to consist of some of the best freerunners in the world, who now collectively works to spread freedom of movement to an increasing number of people around the globe.Every day, all of the team members work towards the same purpose: to create freedom of movement for everybody.
They do this by coaching kids and adults all over the globe, teaching the techniques of parkour and freerunning. The team's ambassadors and pro athletes regularly post videos on social media, that inspire young freerunners to train with dedication and discipline, so that they too can experience JIYO's purpose.
Another key element in securing freedom of movement, apart from training and inspiration, is having the right workout gear.
Team JiYo has already launched their own popular line of clothing, that makes moving around the city scape easier than ever before.
Untill now we haven’t been able to find the perfect shoe that meet the high demands freerunners all over the world need for their footwear.
Either they are not grippy enough, flexible enough or durable enough. That’s why we have now taken the challenge into our own hands and created our own parkour shoe as we think it should be.
We hope you’ll like it as much as we do.
Thank you so much for your support - it means everything!
