I recently got back into fencing for exercise and for fun. I was looking for a sneaker that will be light and comfortable. I found this shoe by accident. It is made by a company called Hey Dude and they have many models. This particular model is well suited for fencing practice use.

The Advantages...

When it comes to shoes, I am very picky. My feet require comfort most of all. This shoe has several advantages. It is light weight and comfortable. The top is made of a fabric that allows for breathing. The padding is made of memory foam and leather. The bottom of the shoe is a single piece molded rubber and has excellent traction.

These are all properties that a fencer can appreciate. It is also smart looking. It is very economical at $60 a pair. It is made by a company called Hey Dude.


Since I only owned this shoe for about one month, it is hard to judge how durable it is. It is so light and made with fabric, I can see how it can be worn out with rough usage. So far, the rubber heel and toe is holding up well.

It is also great for travel. I went on a trip recently to the West Coast. It was all I had on this trip. It was very comfortable to wear on the six hours flight. It felt like wearing a pair of slippers.


I am always looking for comfortable shoes. This is an amazing find. It is everything I was looking for in a pair of fencing shoe. I use it for practice. It provides the agility I need to do well. I recommend this highly.
