Another night at the dojo and the skin on my feet is sore from practice on hardwood floors.

How do you take good care of your feet, aside from the obvious washing and nail-clipping?

I have always had trouble with my feet because the skin would be so dry and I would get those splits all over, In working out they would get bigger and bleed, much like the splits you get on your hands, thumbs etc. I started soaking my feet in warm water with baby oil in it. Even though it made the skin softer, it did not make my feet less tough. It also took care of the splits. :idea: Worked for me.

Wear socks & martial arts shoes as well. Being injured by the training in that manner makes little or no sense whatever. There are many out there, each with different benefits...

discipline shoes in our store. I've been using them whenever I have to teach on a concrete surface, ground or "questionable" surfaces.

I've had mine for over a year and they still are in good condition.

Good Morning,

<<discipline shoes in our store.

I'm sorry. "Discipline" is the name of the line of shoes?

<<I've had mine for over a year and they still are in good condition.

Do the shoes have any type/kind of arch in them (Some brands do Adidas TKD2000, I think was one.... Pinetree maybe another?)?

Jeff

the shoes have an arch in them and are light years ahead of pinetree and the other martial art shoes out there.

Discipline is the name of the line.

Good Evening ~Sire~

<<the shoes have an arch in them and are light years ahead of pinetree and the other martial art shoes out there.

I do not have any, therefore I cannot say...

Why are they "ahead" lightyears or otherwise? Please articulate more about them, if you would....

Enquiring minds would love to know more please,
Jeff

1. More durible. My Pinetrees fell apart after a couple months of heavy use.

2. More comfortable. The Disciplines "fit" is better then the Pinetree.

3. Sturdy. The Disciplines offer more support than the Pinetree.

4. "Tread" design is superior. Feels like you are in your bare feet.

Hope this helps.

Good Morning,

<<My Pinetrees fell apart after a couple months of heavy use.

Hummmngh. Must be all that Uechi toe kicking :wink: that does it...

<<More comfortable. The Disciplines "fit" is better then the Pinetree.

DO you mean a wider show box? Or something else?

<<Sturdy. The Disciplines offer more support than the Pinetree.

Uses a double arch system? Or some type of an arch? If, if I remember rightly, a summary lack of arches were the one drawback on the Pinetree shoes? These disciplines have the "side arch" which most sneakers possess? Are there other arches? (NOTE: I'm going to run out of ~shoe vocabulaty~ really fast, hope my thoughts/questions are coherent thus far...?)

<<4. "Tread" design is superior. Feels like you are in your bare feet.

TRACTION :o ?!?!?! Wow.... I am a big fan of having traction. Been contemplating some type of wrestling shoe, but the ones I've tried never have sufficent traction for my tastes anyway...

Appreciate your responses to my questions... thank you!

Jeff

The Pinetrees material didn't dry the way the Disciplines do. My feet sweat a lot wearing any shoe during a workout. The Pinetrees dried stiff and the stitches rotted out after a relatively short time. The soles separated as well.

Comfort: I don't know what you mean be "show box". By comfort I simply mean that wearing them felt good. The material didn't stretch out or pinch at the ankles.

Understood. Bottoms of my feet sweat frequently, shoed or not.

<<Comfort: I don't know what you mean be "show box".

I am sorry. :oops:

Shoebox in a normal shoe refers (I believe) to the portion of the shoe from mid-foot forward to the ends of the toes. Specifically I believe it refers to wherether or not the toes are too squished (ie in a dress shoe) or if they possess the correct amount of room...

In my case I tend to need a wider shoe/shoebox to be comfortable.

<<The material didn't stretch out or pinch at the ankles.

Excellent. I was hoping some others might pop-in on this topic, given there are MANY folks now wearing such shoes. No matter, I appreciate your time & efforts re: these shoes,

Look forward to your response when time allows,

Jeff
