I plan to purchase wrestling shoes for my young son. What should I look at when buying wrestling shoes?
If you're buying shoes for the first time or replacing an old pair these advices will help ensure you get the most from your purchase. Size- Each manufacturer has different recommendations. For example, Asics and Adidas recommend that you add a 1/2 size to your gym shoe size while Nike recommends one full size to your normal gym shoe size. The 1/2 size for Asics and Adidas is a good benchmark. For younger wrestlers you should probably add a full size to their normal shoe size. This way the shoes will last longer, especially if your daughter or son is growing quickly. Price - Next, you need to determine your budget Most wrestling shoes range from $40 to well over $100. If you're not sure whether your son or daughter will stay in the sport long enough to get full value from the shoes, it's best to go with the cheaper shoe. Brand - Finally your last option is to choose the brand. As mentioned, Brute, Adidas, Nike, Infinity, and Asics have been manufacturing shoes for many years and provide great quality products. In many cases your wrestler will get 1-2 years out of these shoes.
