980 TATOU is a shoe for the urban sport Le Parkour, an activity with the aim of moving from one point to another as efficiently and quickly as possible by using only the abilities of your body to overcome obstacles, like concrete walls, balustrades and rocks. In most cases, people who do Le Parkour often have to use shoes designed for other purposes like running, skating, etc., but when used for Le Parkour, those shoes can wear out quickly. The structure of the 980 TATOU responds to the movements performed in the sport, and its several detachable parts as well as its new lacing system allow for easy exchange, washing and customization of the shoe itself.
