Martial Arts Shoes by Martial Arts Style (i.e. Taekwondo)

  • Martial Arts Shoes - This section shows a wide variety of martial arts shoes including Adidas martial arts shoes, Wushu shoes, etc.
  • BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) Shoes - BJJ students mainly train with bare feet. Some BJJ schools allow the use of wrestling shoes but this can tear up the skin of grappling partners.
  • Boxing Shoes - Boxing shoes can be high-top or low-top shoes. High-top boxing shoes give more ankle support whereas low-top boxing shoes provide better maneuverability.
  • Karate Shoes - Some Karate schools use shoes for sparring, practice, etc. They are often laceless in order to avoid injuring a sparring/practice partner with the "whip" of a shoe lace.
  • Krav Maga Shoes - Krav Maga students traditionally use wrestling shoes, cross training sneakers or bare feet.
  • Kung Fu Shoes
  • MMA Grappling Socks
  • Muay Thai Ankle Wraps
  • Sandals - Traditional Japanese sandals. Think of Samurai movies. :)
  • Sparring Shoes - Sparring protective footwear.
  • Ninjutsu Tabi Shoes - Tabi shoes are the famous Japanese split-toe shoes.
  • Taekwondo Shoes - Some Taekwondo schools use shoes for sparring, breaking, practice, etc. They are often laceless in order to avoid injuring a sparring/practice partner with the "whip" of a shoe lace.
  • Tai Chi Shoes - Tai Chi shoes tend to look like martial arts "slippers". They are geared towards allowing feet to turn more easily than a regular sneaker as they have less floor "grip".
  • Wrestling & Grappling Shoes - Shoes for MMA, Wrestling, etc.
  • Wushu Shoes
