Is there any equipment/costs involved in Parkour?
One of the many great things about Parkour is that it can be practiced with nothing but yourself, and a pair of shoes. Commonly Parkour is practiced with just a pair of good running shoes, however many types of shoes have been used. It is not a requirement, but a good pair of running shoes is recommended for the practice of Parkour. If you are choosing to buy a new pair of shoes for your child to train with, it’s best to choose a durable running shoe with no plastic parts, a reasonably thin outsole, and a good grip on the ground. K-Swiss also produces a line of parkour/freerunning shoes. They’re available at their website, K-Swiss.
