It is sometimes surprising that small things make such big differences and I feel like shoes are a product that encapsulate that concept well. Anyone
who has suffered through a pair of shoes that rubbed against you ankle or your laces suddenly come untied and youre left tripping at the most inopportune time.
In Tae Kwon Do there has been a trend of wearing lightweight shoes to train in. Tae Kwon Do shoes have a few qualities that set them apart shoes you wear out
for business or pleasure. Tae Kwon Do shoes have to be lightweight, they need to allow good air flowand they tend to have very little sole to them. These shoes
are not flimsy they are just designed for a very specific purpose.
Tae Kwon Do is a martial art that focuses on kicks, students commonly practice high kicks, aerial kicks and they often use kick pads to work on their more powerful
kicks so any shoes that is worn for training has to be non abrasive. Shoes help prevent the spread of fungus, which does happen in an environment where people
commonly train bare foot. Shoes also help prevent blisters at the bottoms of your feet and can be painful. Sprained toes are not uncommon and shoes keep the toe
compressed so it can heal. Shoes are important.
