La Sportiva Fireblade- Shoe of Choice for Parkour

I was watching a show called E:60 on ESPN last night (OK, my husband was watching and I was checking email in the same room) and they ran a segment on Parkour. Crazy stuff - a blend of running, climbing and gymnastics - with a liberal dose of insanity. And everyone knows insanity is the key ingredient to any great sport.

Anyway, the show grabbed my attention just in time to see a couple of beauty shots of the La Sportiva Fireblade! Apparently a shoe of choice among elite traceurs in training. Who knew? First bicycle polo, then truck pulling, and now this. Is there anything La Sportiva shoes aren't good for? I guess the same features that help you stick to the side of a mountain can help you stick to man made structures too.

To see for myself how well Fireblades perform for Parkour, I had George go out and give it a try (he was already wearing his Fireblades today). After watching a couple YouTube videos he was ready to go. He made it all the way to the wall around our parking lot... and the doctors say he should recover fully. Guess it is harder than it looks on TV.
