FEATURES
GRIP - The Nike Shox have quite a reasonable grip, and take a while to wear down. They work fine when doing cat leaps, and generally have alot of traction. Despite this, you do not really feel the surface underneath you, which, in many ways, is not neccaserily a good thing. 4/5

SHOCK RESISTENCE - This is where those 'pogo stick' looking things pay off, they actually take alot of impact, and if worn with extra insoles, create a very comfortable and noticable cusion. 4/5

WEIGHT - These trainers are reasonably heavy, maybe due to all the little embellishments, and the pogostick like resisters, but they're still adequate for the purpose we're targeting. 3/5
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS PRODUCT?
When I first began training with my three friends, they were all wearing Nike Shox, whilst I was wearing some sort of thin sole based Puma shoe. I decided I needed a new pair of trainers, which were going to be more helpful for practising parkour in. Taking their inexperianced advice, I too bought some Nike Shox. I regret it to this day, as I now look like a chav, and they have a pair of Adidas Nova's, and Asics Gels 1100 between them!.
ROADTEST

COMFORT
They feel great, despite the weight. They hug your foot, and provide plenty of padding/cushioning. I wear a pair of polysorb insoles in mine, and they're a treat! 4/5

DURABILITY

The cloth like material soakes up water, and will result in an unpleasent stench. But apart from this, mine are still going strong, and havent really caused me any problems. 3/5

STYLE
What can I say, wearing these will bring many prejudice views, aswell as making you look like you've strapped pogo sticks to your feet. Despite this, they're available in a wide range of colours and designs, and are considered 'cool' by alot of people. I'd have to give it a very personal 2/5

VALUE FOR MONEY
They are generally from £50 to £70, which is far too expensive for what is no where near amoungst the top trainers for parkour, therefore, I give it a 1/5

CONCLUSION
Despite the 4/5's, I'd say this trainer is worthy of half marks. There are far better trainers out there than this, thus, DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH, AND WHAT IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE! 2/5
