Upsurge Ultra / Parkour Performance Shoe

Upsurge Ultra
Upsurge Ultra

Parkour can be a dangerous sport, if you don´t have the right equipment. The most important gear may be the shoe. While you are running, jumping and climbing trough the city you stress your feet a lot. To avoid any injuries, you should wear UPSURGE ULTRA´s.
These are the perfect shoes for parkour. The sole consists of a cushioning synthetic material, which allows more grip and safety. It is also really thin so you can literally feel the concrete. The upper is made of an innovative knit material which reduces the weight. The loops for the laces are woven in the knit fabric to avoid more parts and weight. The ribbons guarantee more tightness.
