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.

      The first time I laced these up and started practicing with them, I was instantly blown away by their fit and performance. They offer great support without weighing me down, and are quite breathable, making them more comfortable. I love these shoes, and don't see myself wearing any other any time soon.

          This product is just as good as the $100-130 models. New wrestling shoes are new wrestling shoes and id rather have 2 pairs of these than one of the more expensive ones! these make me move faster than others with heavier traction also. Definitely fits my wrestling style.

              The shoes I owned previously were the Split Second 7th edition, and those lasted me for exactly 1 year. I'm hoping that these will last longer. So far the comfortability exceeds that of the split second 7. The double sole really emphasizes my movements.
