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.

          Very lightweight. My son absolutely loves them. Gets good traction. The only down fall was they hurt the back of the heel the first few times he wore them but that stopped after about the first week.

                                  Asics shoes are always great and these are no exception. My son wrestles for the local high school team and these shoes get a lot of use and are holding up well.

                                  I use the products strictly for matches because i like the grip and weight of the shoe. But the high top makes them really stiff and doens't really fit my style because i like to have my ankles under me. The high top makes it slightly uncomfortable to do so.

                                  Service and delivery comments:

                                  Very happy with delivery. Much quicker then i had excepted with no damage to the shoes and to the right address.

                                    Ordered these shoes for my wrestling team and the boys love them. They look sweet, have great traction and ankle support. Kids that didn't get in on the order found themselves spending up to $20 more at the local sports stores.

                                            I am a second year wrestler and this shoes are pretty good. I like the color and they fit pretty well. They have excellent traction but the shoe itself sometimes hurt my feet. That may just be because I haven't broken them in yet though. Good beginning shoe.
