So what exactly did I look for in a shoe? Price. Since I’m brand new to this, I don’t need the best gear. Plus, I need to have enough money for any other projects that I have on the go for this Building Batman. I expect Jiu Jitsu to cost a bit. The shoes that I settled on are a pair of Mad Rock. I hope they’re what the doctor ordered.
This afternoon I biked across town to the largest sporting store in the city and bought a pair of rock climbing shoes. Oh, man are they uncomfortable. They are supposed to be really tight and mine are (I hope tight enough). But it’s a good thing that I knew exactly what I wanted because the service was really weak and I didn’t get much help.
