We've heard of sport specific footwear, but this shoe takes the cake. As you can see in the video below, the testing sessions for the Five Ten Atlas Pamplona resulted in more than just blisters. The company sent 150 runners out with red kicks at this year's Fiesta de San Fermin in Pamplona

What else is the Atlas Pamplona good for? I'd imagine runnning from the cops, or any other activity where you need to make quick moves at high speed. The upper is slip lasted like a climbing shoe for extra sensitivity, with a thin piece of EVA added to protect against those sharp objects that might jut out from any ordinary urban interface, or in Spain, bull horns rising against your feet. Available September 2012, $150,
