BRAND NIKE
PRODUCT NIKE DART III / IV
PRICE £30.00 approx
WHERE -

FEATURES
GRIP - The grip on them is much better than the Dart IIIs, and has not worn out at all. I've had them since May, and put them through quite a lot. Barely slipped on anything at all. They are also solid rubber the whole way along them, even in the middles.  5/5

SHOCK RESISTANCE - A bit much I think. You cant feel the rail under your foot as well as in other shoes, but if your into big drops, this is good. There is plenty on the heel as well. I do not advise you put polysorbs in them, as they so become very squishy, and you will find it hard to balance. Also, these are the solid foam type, and do not have air pockets, springs, or pumps in them. This is good, because the others are more likely to fail. 3.5/5

WEIGHT - No problem here, very light. 5/5
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS PRODUCT?
I've had the Dart III's before which were very good, and lasted a good time. The fronts however wore out very quickly, so I decided to get a new pair. I 'm as tight as a ducks ass, so I 'm gonna spend as little as possible on shoes. Plus, everyone who has spent more than £40 has had them fall apart as soon as they move. Grip gets ripped off, seams splitting, feet breaking after falling out a tree etc etc.

COMFORT
Really comfortable. no ankle roll in them, unlike some other shoes I've tried. There's no "collapsing" on the fronts either, so your toes don't get squished when you do cats. Because of the shock absorbency in the shoe already, there is no need to add polysorbs to them either. 4.5/5

DURABILITY

These ones are a big improvement on the old Dart II's, as the feature new grip does not wear out nearly as fast. The fronts have also been improved, as they feature better reinforcements while remaining flexible. NOTHING on them has broken, torn, split, or worn down significantly. These are very well made. 5/5

STYLE
Still white, and I still don't like white.

So, here's my good old formula again!

White + dirt = less of an eye sore! I don't buy trainers for looks, I buy them because I think they would help me with my parkour. The Dart IV's are the same as the Dart III's, but in different colour combinations. There will be something for everyone there, and even if there isn't, I 'm sure after a bit of training in them, you will have left your marks on them. 4/5

VALUE FOR MONEY
Bought mine in may 06, still look new, (except for the colour of them :P), and I have no complaints about them. For £30, I think these must be THE best trainer available for less than £40. 5/5
CONCLUSION
These trainers are a big improvement in durability and grip over the older Dart II's. These trainers feature great grip, comfort and shock absorbency, and in my opinion, are one of the best trainers available for all round parkour. 5/5
