I was very surprised about the weight and how well they were made.

My son does Kempo karate and many of the students in the class wear these shoes while they spar.
S. Hecht
These shoes are also very light weight so it makes kicking a little faster and easier.

I really thought these shoes were a stupid idea--how can you kick properly in shoes, really? However, I've tried four or five types of foot pads and always had problems with slippage, straps getting between my toes, and with my feet getting sore. I broke down and bought a pair of these this weekend at a tournament, and they absolutely rock! No matter what you do, they absolutely do not slip. They are less bulky than a lot of foot pads, so they allow more precisely targeted kicking. I was worried that competing in them without practicing in them first would be a problem, but there was exactly zero adjustment time. They aren't as flexible as traditional footpads, but I found that I was still able to flex my foot back to do a good side kick. I also got kicked with a couple of different pairs of them (hey, you can't block every kick) and they did not hurt any more than regular footpads. When these wear out, I will definitely buy more.

This is my second pair of these. I have worn out the first pair after about 3 years of use. They are great shoes for training and sparring. Be careful I think they may have changed the manufacturing process I owned size 8 and when I received the new pair my feet would not fit into the shoe I had to exchange for a size nine. you may want to try one size larger than normal.

Love them for my kickboxing classes. Easy on and easy off. While others are struggling to get ready at 6am for class, these shoes slip right on and off

If you're constantly spraining & jamming toes during heavy hitting fight sessions, then this is the martial arts shoe for you. They offer just the right amount of support to prevent ankle & toe injuries during sparring. They are padded across the top of the foot as well, which your sparring partner will appreciate. For their size they are amazingly light. I am on my second pair now. I've used the version with laces under the pads & I've used the version with just velcro closures, I like them both. If you're looking for a shoe to wear while doing forms/katas, I would suggest a lighter minimal shoe. I've been a martial artist since the 1970s so I am older, and I don't recover from injuries as quickly as I used to. All the other shoes I've tried didn't do much to offer all-around protection during the hard hitting combat fighting of Kajukenbo. I've seen a negative review or two, but it's obvious that it's all about "why" you're going to be wearing the shoes. Fight & hit hard... these shoes are great..., doing forms/katas & light sparring, probably not the shoes for you. Also, socks with minimal flat seams are more comfortable when wearing these shoes.PS... I use these shoes indoors only. Don't know how they'll hold up if used outdoors on hard pavement or rough services. PS... I use these shoes indoors only.

My son does Kempo karate and many of the students in the class wear these shoes while they spar. I got them for him, he is 11, and he is so much more confident wearing them.

In muay thai, most people go barefoot, but I prefer shoes to protect my toes. It will hurt while using them for the first week or 2 because they're brand new so you have to break them in. After that, they're good!

Working good so far. These are basically a wrestling shoe with some padding. I ordered a size 10 and normally wear a size 10.5. Its tight but I figured that they should be and should loosen as they break in. I'll also note that I wear them with socks. I ordered these after injuring my toe nails about a half a dozen times in sparring. The last time I lost about half my toenail on my big toe.
I use these for muay thai sparring. The padding is less than I expected, but adequate. I do not fear for my toenails anymore. I have also kicked an elbow where the impact was right at the ankle joint. Usually kicking with any power and hitting an elbow like this will end a training session since most shin/instep guards do not have padding there for flexibility. The padding on the tongue of the shoe saved me and allowed me to continue training.
Despite the padding, they are very light and do not hinder kicking at all. The sole of the shoe is soft and flexible with just enough traction for quick maneuvering, yet not so sticky that you tear your knees and ankles up while turning the hip over for a kick.
The shin/instep guards I use are Twins (http://www.amazon.com/Twins-Special-Shin-Guards-X-Large/dp/B00GY0MZVC/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1412172626&sr=8-6&keywords=twins+shin+guard) that have a foot arch strap and a heel strap. You can use these shin guards with the shoes but you have to put them on in a special way. First stick your foot in through the heel strap, then pull the shin guard up enough so that you can get the shoe on. Push the shin guard down to the shoe, then pull forward on the instep to stretch the heel strap. While stretching the heel strap, pull the arch strap around the toes of the shoe and slide it to about mid foot.
