    Default Which types of fencing shoes and bootsare used at clubs?

    Which types of shoes and boots do fencers use here? Especially those at clubs on a budget?

    I have seen advertised Adidas D'artagnon, Nike, PBT Silverstar...

    I have a pair of shoes that are no good, after the first few hours, they began digging into my toes knuckles and hurt.

    Are there any Chinese no name brands that work?

    I use the Nike Air Zooms which are fine, I also used Hi-Tec of a previous generation both were pretty good. In reality I think any that are comfortable will be as good as the next pair, even a pair of squash shoes will do the job.

    A couple of the GB team at 2012 wore the Hi-Tec squash shoes, i wear Decathlon own brand squash/badminton shoes, but really any flat soled shoes would be ok.

    I have bought a Yonex badminton shoe, but it bends into my toe knuckles and hurts . Now I consider buying a Dunlop Badminton shoe, so are they comfortable and good?
    And Happy New Year.

    The best fencing shoes available on the market at the moment are the Adidas D'Artagnan (either IV or V) and the Nike Ballestras.

    Some other sports shoes work well (e.g badminton and some tennis shoes). But if you want to use fencing shoes then these are your best bet.

    Alternatively adidas produce a budget version called the 'En Garde'. The Leon Paul/ Hi-Tech shoes are generally garbage.

    NEVER use wrestling shoes.

    Hope this helps.

    I think the first version of Hi-Tec blades were OK, but D'Art IV all the way for me. Hugely long lasting and comfortable.

    Hi-Tec quash have been popular shoes for fencers for the last 30 odd years.

    Very budget, but solid and well made.
