To do fitness (the Desbonnet/Rouhet method) I need foot weights from 8 to 15Kg (17 to 33lbs) per foot.
I only found 2Kg (4.5lbs) weights that you strap around your ankles. I would need to attach at least 4 of them to my ankle which would be little practical and notably more expensive.
Ideally I'm looking for a special shoe onto which I could insert a bar or disks directly.

Never heard of the Desbonnet/Rouhet method, do you have a link with more information? –  Chris Dec 27 '13 at 18:00
    
@Chris Desbonnet, basically, is the guy who invented physical fitness 100 years ago. bsfpro.fr/index.php?file=Sections&op=article&artid=17 –  user2534 Jan 2 at 20:08
    
I wouldn't do that if I were you. If you want to be uber fit, just train like an athlete –  Kneel-Before-ZOD Mar 31 at 20:35
    
@Kneel-Before-ZOD Go learn what a true athlete is. –  user2534 Apr 1 at 13:50
    
@user2534 I know that a true athlete won't be attaching a 30-lbs weight to their feet (for whatever exercise training being performed) . That won't make you run faster, jump higher or perform optimally. Want big thighs? Deadlift and weight-squat! Want endurance? Run/sprint/jog. Want strength? Lift higher weights! Want joint problems later in life? Walk with 30-lbs weights strapped to your ankles. –  Kneel-Before-ZOD Apr 1 at 13:58
