We have been getting a lot of questions about shoes at Ninja Nation. We are a shoes ON facility at Ninja Nation as shoes provide grip, balance and support for the demands of obstacle course navigation. There are some important elements for a good Ninja shoe:
- Flat sole with lots of surface area
- Grippy sole (test it out on plexiglass or the warped wall)
- Toebox for balance
- Fit and comfort
While we do not formally endorse any shoes at Ninja Nation, New Balance, Merrill and Adidas have some really grippy rubber sole showes as well as a universal fit that is very popular with many of our participants.
