Not equal to the hype

Discipline Martial Arts Shoes



Do you remember the U.S. News and World report about $100 rubber-sole athletic footwear costing $5.00 to manufacture?...in that light...



Several months elapsed before I received my Disciplines. I ordered size 14 men...I do not understand why that size caused the delay.



The posts of Discipline owner/users cite that the shoe is tight for its size, and to order larger than normal. Size 13 is too small for me; there is no 13.5, therefore I ordered 14...14 is too big.



The insole slipped up above my heel when working out...I had to have the insole glued by a shoemaker to solve the problem.



The sole was described as having a perfect balance between spin-slip and traction for martial arts...there is so much grip that I reinjured my miniscus injury.



>The shoe was described as having a ''running shoe'' sole, rather than a typical martial arts shoe...this is no ''running shoe'' sole. It is maybe one degree above canvas-hard-rubber-slum shoes.



>Conclusion:

This shoe is not worth $60.00.

If you weigh 285 lb. and have a knee injury where rotational friction is a problem, these Disciplines may cause additional injury.

>

If you must get these Disciplines, and your foot is a 13.5 EEE, look elsewhere.



You will have to glue your insoles.



I am going to use my expensive, shock-absorbing running shoes built for 300 lb. athletes to run, and I will practice katas, tournaments, spar in bare feet. My skin provides the perfect balance of friction/pivot for Kung Fu-Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon (Tao Chi), my Master: Tao Sifu Franklin, Anthem, Arizona, USA.



>I will submit the same responses for my experience with Wado Karate, Sensei Marlon Moore, Gilbert, Arizona, USA

I submit this critique with respect. I wish not to humilitate anyone, but to inform potential purhcasers that share my attributes, and injuries, as imposed by the laws of physics of this planet.
