Hi. I'm pretty new to karate and I have a question. I'd like to practice kata at home, but I live in the dorms so the only place to practice is outside. I've tried practicing in bare feet, but it hurts on concrete and not an option on grass (allergies=rash). I've also tried in shoes, but it just feels wrong. So I was wondering if anyone knows of/has tried any footwear. I was thinking something along the lines of ballet shoes? The incongruity is horrible and cringe worthy. I don't know anything about ballet shoes, by the way. They just came to mind while thinking thin and flexible foot wear. Please help! (cross posted to martial_artists )
ETA: Oh! I'm sorry, I forgot to mention I'm vegan, so leather won't work for me. (I claim it was late for the forgetfulness. ^_^) Thank you for that suggestion, though.
