      Comments about Asics Cael V4.0 Wrestling Shoes:

      I was disappointed with the quality. These Caels had a plastic and hard feel/look to them. The only good thing I can say is the sole was nice and flexible. It seem if you are serious anything under the $125 range is going to be junk. Believe or not the basic Matflex 2/3 is about the best shoes under $100.
      My vintage gables from college are still superior to these but don't expect to get more than a year out of any wrestling shoe if you the serious athelete.

                  After buying one pair for my grankid awhile back the younger kid needed a pair of wrestling shoes. After wearing asics ultra the older one said that these shoes Cael V4 wear a good shoe and price wise alot cheaper. So when the younger one needed a pair I got these for him which he said fit perfect and Im sure down the road he'll need some more shoe's and Scoreboard has the best deals on them and other shoes.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Funny the shoes came at the time they said it would and as I got ready to leave the house the delivery truck pulled up. Talk about perfect timing.

                            I bought this wrestling shoe for my son who is 10 and a very competitive wrestler. He loved this shoe and really wanted it, unfortunately this style was a little too narrow and hurt his foot. His foot is not wide, he's average size but this just seemed too tight for him. We found that the new Matflex fit him better. Sorry to say we will have to return it. It looks well made and is the lightest shoe we've come across.

                                We went from a Cael 3.0 to 4.0 so were familiar with the shoe's traits.

                                          I use this product particularly for weight training for ankle support. It was a bit stiff in the beginning, but I cannot really make a judgement only a month into owning the product. At this point they are perfect but the true test is 6 months of use which should be fine due to Asics reputation.

                                            For having a medium to average width foot, it was a little too narrow for me, but over time i got use to it. Overall a great shoe.
