If you’re a Take Flight faithful, we have a bit more information for you. As you probably know, we recently produced a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Ultra shoe. Unfortunately, we didn’t reach our funding need. As disappointing as this was, what we realized is unlike most brands in the Parkour world, we aren’t a brand that waits. We believe in what we are doing, we believe in our products, we believe in who we are, and we move ahead with that conviction. It’s just like the movement in Parkour. You know and you advance. That’s why Take Flight is here today, and that’s one of things that separates us from other Parkour brands.
With this is mind, after the failed Kickstarter campaign we reorganized some things and found a way to launch the shoe anyway. We had to push back the launch date, but other than that everything is exactly the same! Now the Ultra will officially launch in August – no ifs or maybes. August is the time. That’s why anyone worldwide can now order the Ultra through our website.
Are you excited? We are. And most importantly, we’re confident. Just like a Traceur who knows what he can do and does it, that’s who we are and that’s the story of the Ultra. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, we are Traceurs.
The Ultra Shoes are fully developed and ready for production! We think you are absolutely going to LOVE these shoes, and we stand behind that claim with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
In order to launch these shoes, we have to get our campaign funded. So if you like the look of these or if you just want to support a great Parkour initiative, head on over the our Kickstarter campaign and order your pair of shoes! They are only $69 for one pair and $65 each if you purchase two.
Our campaign runs until March 20th. Every pledge counts. Thank you for believing in us and the shoe and helping us make this a reality!

In response to the success of the Take Flight 1.0, we embarked on a mission to design a new shoe for the Parkour world. We wanted to improve upon the 1.0 while also creating something that appealed to a different style. After more than a year in development, the final result is the Take Flight Ultra.
We have made the shoe in 3 amazing colors to fit your style! To find out more, see videos of our pros wearing the shoe, and to save 30% by picking up a pair for only $65 then please click here!
We are proud to bring you the first look at the world’s next Parkour shoe. It’s out brand new Take Flight Elite.
Designed to run like the Take Flight 1.0s, the Elites will be really similar except they are more durable, they have a better toe design, and they’re just cooler. Expected launch is January 2016, so stay tuned for news on how to reserve your pair at www.TKFLT.com
In April we unveiled the new Take Flight shoes (set to be released in January 2016). This month we are unveiling the shoes tread design. Check it out.
We designed this tread to be both awesome looking and, most importantly, awesome performing. We have a virtually flat bottom made for optimal gripping and control. We have specified grooves for added grip in tac and landing specific areas.
Once you put on a pair of the Take Flight Elites, we are confident you’ll consider them some of the best Parkour shoes ever made. Stay tuned for updates about launching and pre-order news!
Have you ever look at the bottom of your shoes and thought about how the company could have changed the tread design to give it better grip? Well now you have a chance to do just that be designing the bottom of our next shoe!
With our newest Parkour shoes now in development (scroll down to the bottom of this page to see them), we want to see your ideas for the perfect Parkour tread design. So we are holding this contest. To enter, all you have to do is sketch out what you think is the perfect Parkour shoe sole design. If we like your design the best, we will give you $100, a pair of the upcoming Take Flight shoes, AND we will even consider making your design the tread design for the new Take Flight Elites! Imagine that – you becoming the designer behind the sole of the world’s next Parkour shoe! How awesome would that be to have on your life resume? :-)
Here are the details:
- Take out a pencil and a piece of paper and sketch out the ultimate Parkour shoe sole tread design. You can also use a computer program, or anything else to draw, sketch, or otherwise design the shoe tread you think would be the best. You don’t have to be an artist by any means, but try to make your drawing look clean and crisp like the drawing below.
- Make sure the tread design incorporates the Flight Man logo or full Take Flight Logo in some way (for reference, you can download our logo files by clicking here).
- Feel free to add color to the design. You can also do a 3D mockup, you can have a side profile view, or you can make other images. Whatever you think is best to show your design, we want to see it.
- Submit your shoe sole design to us at email@example.com with the email title “Shoe Sole Design Contest.”
- Submission deadline is 11:59pm on Wednesday, May 27th (so you only have one week!). We’d love to see your designs after this, but if submitted after they won’t be eligible for the prize.

If you have any questions, post them in the comments below. Good luck!
A month ago we unveiled 5 new Parkour shoe designs, and in an unprecedented decision to let the Parkour world control the future of their/your/our shoes, we decided to let you guys vote and pick which one we were going to make! But here is what happened. We posted the photos on Facebook and Instagram, and the voting turnout was so positive, that instead of just making one shoe, we’ve decided to make 2 shoes! Here are the results.
The Take Flight Elite was the #1 vote-getter of our shoes! From the first time we posted this design in summer 2014, you guys loved it! We modified the design and turned it into the Elite shown below. This shoe is going to be made in the same fashion as the 1.0 shoe – great cushioning-to-feel ratio, amazing traction, and a hot the new look that we call the Elites. If you love the 1.0, then this will be your new baby when we launch them this coming January.
The Take Flight Ultra was the #2 vote-getter of our shoes! This shoe got so many votes that we just had to move ahead with it as well. This shoe will be a minimalist shoe design with an obviously thin outsole developed for amazing feel and responsiveness. Already in development, we can also tell you that the traction will be just as amazing as our 1.0 and Elites. If you love shoes like the Onitsuka Tigers, the Puma Faas or the Feiyues, then this is going to be your new favorite footwear – we guarantee it. Just hang tight another 6 months :-)
The expected launch date for both the Elites and the Ultras is January 2016 – only about 6 months away! So stay tuned for all the news as we bring the shoes you voted for to the Parkour world.
For now, we have the Take Flight 1.0 which won’t be going away any time soon. Traceurs worldwide are raving about these (!!) and we are so convinced you’ll love them too that we offer a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee (meaning if you don’t absolutely love them, we’ll give you your money back). Click here to pick up your pair for only $65!
