Wrestling shoes

Wrestling shoes

Wrestling shoes are active wear used in competition and practice for the sport of wrestling. Generally extremely light and flexible, they try to mimic the bare foot with slightly more traction and ankle support and less chance of contracting a disease or hurting someone with your toe nails.

Some power lifters find wrestling shoes to be useful when lifting because of how little shock absorption they provide.


Some name brands of wrestling shoes are Nike, Adidas, Matman, and ASICS.
