    Comments about Asics Dan Gable Ultimate 2 Wrestling Shoes:

    I have to say that these are the best wrestling shoes I have ever used. They have great ankle strength, flexibility as well as really good grip. The only cons i could give are that it does feel a little narrow before you actually break them in and it feels a little smaller than usual but other than that they definitely feel like high quality wrestling shoes. I would recommend these to any wrestler; especially the more advanced wrestlers.

      college competition, lightweight, may be a little stiff, maybe not broken in yet. Good value compared to what else is out there.

                These shoes took about 2-3 practices to break in. They fit great and have great traction on the mat. I would recommend to my fellow team mates.

                      Shoe feels very stiff at first, but does loosen up after awhile. The arch is high on one of the shoes (not sure if its my feet though). Good overall shoe. I would recommend them.

                            I bought these for my son. He is a 4th year, 7th grade wrestler. Shoes fit great out of the box. He saw a HUGE increase in traction with these shoes. the rubbery bits all over the sides even give traction from the sides and top of the shoe. Hes only on the mat with these, change shoes for running the halls. He puts about 10hrs a week in and has been using them for 2months. They look brand new and are holding up great. Well worth the money even though he will probably grow out of them by next year (then his sister will inherit them :).

                                  This was my first pair of wrestling shoes i have purchased in 16 years. They are outstanding in every way.

                                  Service and delivery comments:

                                  Delivery was prompt, there was a small problem with my order and they corrected it quickly and paid for all shipping costs.

                                  First time I put these on,they were a bit stiff and uncomfortable. The second time however, they were a lot more comfortable. This is mainly due to them not being broken in. They offer great traction on the mat and perform quite well. Overall, Asics did a great job with this next generation of Asics.
