              Comments about Adidas Mat Wizard III John Smith Signature Wrestling Shoes:

              Recieved 1st pair and within a very short time the strap covering the laces started to rip on one shoe. Called SCOREBOARD SPORTS Customer Service and they sent me another new pai[...] both of the NEW shoes had the same problem. [...] the shoes are junk[...] We see John Smith quite frequently because our sons wrestle in the same region. I was tempted to show him what kind of product he is endorsing. I don't think he would be to happy about the quality.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was very quick. We got the right size and color.
              Customer service was extremely prompt to respond and very helpful.
              Took care of my problem.
              I will DEFINATELY purchase from SCOREBOARD SPORTS again, and have already told my wrestling community friends about my experience.

                I bought a pair here last year[...] I would say if you had a Christmas gift in mind, and were given [$] for choosing a pair, probably go with these. You might avoid them if you require a wide shoe. If you want adidas but don't want to pay the higher end $140 for an average size width adidas, the Mat Wizard 3 are perfect. If you are not sure about going over $90, Scoreboard has the adidas Vaporspeed 2 and Response 2 at prices a bit lower than the Mat Wizard 3. The Response 2 has some nice colors. I liked the Copper/Black/Silver color in the Mat Wizard 3, that is why I picked them. I'd say if you are looking for a [$]pair of shoes that are a newer model, these might be a good pick if adidas is your brand, especially if one of the colors in Mat Wizard 3 go well with your school's singlet color.

                    I love the color, the design, and the feel of the shoes. It is my first time ordering shoes online. I was leary they might not fit, but they were what I expected.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    I expected a long delivery time and was surprised it arrived in only a few days. Thank you!!!
