            Comments about Asics Dan Gable Ultimate 2 Wrestling Shoes:

            when i first got them in like october they felt really light and were flexible, but felt like cardboard socks. after about a season of wearing them the grip lines on the bottom are only half gone. toward the end of the season i noticed that little chunks of thick paper-ish something were gathering around my toes during practice. turns out the paper on the bottom of the insoles was tearing out. im now at sumer camp and the lace flap on the tongue tore in half. but i think im just gonna get new ones. more confortable and flexible than any addidas shoe that i tried.

              Tad stiff out of the box... which goes away after a few days of use. Great traction and comfort when you're at it 2 hours a day 5 days a week. So far there hanging in there. College squads seem to tear the webbing up top at the toe.

                              My son uses these shoes for high school/club wrestling. It is a very durable and flexible shoe.

                              I using this for real wrestling match
                              This is great because it protect ankle well
                              but this is too expensive.
