To succeed in parkour classes it is suggested that you wear shoes with a rubber sole. Shoes with a foam sole may result in injury as they have a high chance of slipping on obstacles. Pictured here is Strike MVMNT's "Chill Pill Transit AF Trainers which cost $120. This is the high end cost of parkour footwear. Type of sole on your shoe is a basic consideration when starting parkour, for other shoes and other recommendations for what shoes to wear here is the link to "Empire Parkour" 's shoe breakdown.
During warmer months light, breathable, sportswear is most commonly used when training parkour. Constricting clothing is often avoided (Jeans) as it can make certain actions harder to perform. With this in mind basketball shorts and a cutoff or short sleeve t-shirt is average wear. It is possible to train in jeans but, it is not recommended when you first start.
During the colder months sweats and sweatshirts are often used as they still allow mobility as well as provide warmth when training outside.
