Details
The Asics Split Second 8 Wrestling Shoes are the 8th generation of the popular Split Second Wrestling Shoes from Asics. New for 2010, the Split Second 8 retains all of the features that made last year's Split Second shoe a success. This new model features a sleek, updated look including 4 brand new colorways. The Split Second 8 also features an improved, asymmetrical lacing design that provides an anatomically correct lacing environment to help reduce potential for irritation and provides improved comfort and fit.

As with its predecessors, the Split Second 8 also features a split sole design to provide wrestlers with more control on the mat. Split Sole designs are a two-piece sole that allows the forefoot and heel to work independently, increasing range of motion and providing superior performance. Split sole designs also provide wrestlers with enhanced flexibility, seriously increasing their performance. These high-performance wrestling shoes also feature an integrated lace garage that complies with rules regarding laces.

Experienced wrestlers all across the country have chosen Asics as their wrestling shoe brand, and many have made the Split Second their number one wrestling shoe. For the past 7 years, the Split Second has provided wrestlers with an economical, high-performance shoe sure to fit any budget or talent level. 2010 brings a new look and updated colors, yet the Split Second 8 retains every feature that has made it undefeated in providing wrestlers with an exceptional value.

        Will use this shoe everyday in practice. I like the Split Second model. The last pair lasted me over 10 years if an eyelet wouldn't have broke would still be using them this year. Only thing I experience is the she felt a little narrow, but after a week of wearing in practice has loosened up pretty well.

                        I just started wearing these for practices. They are breaking in quickly. I think the split sole may have helped to form to my foot faster than a continuous sole. This is my first pair of split soles.
                        I read a lot of reviews before buying these and noticed remarks that they run a half size small. I didn't see much mention of that on this site so I will mention it now. I exchanged for a half size larger and it's a good fit.

                              these r amazing shoes. good traction when wrestling on a mat help with shots like single leg, and double legs the traction helps u have more power and speed when u shoot especially because they r light weight.
