    Default When to get new wrestling gear?

    I wrestled with these Nike's for one season.
    http://www.eastbay.com/product/model...3001&size=10.5
    The Nike swoosh and white thread stitches along the side seem to be showing signs of wear.
    Is it time to get new shoes? I want to start a season with the same shoes and end with the same. Will these shoes last?

    I have this headgear.
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...KPX1CZFME4DN2H
    The chin strap was comfortable. There aren't any signs of wear. They did however get loose during a match and shifted position. It was stuck on my face for a while as the ref helped me reposition it.
    I want to buy these http://www.amazon.com/Cliff-Keen-Tor...ef=pd_sim_sg_4 because the reviews are good and looks pretty cool in my team's colors.

    thanks

    I'd use the rougher pair for training and only break in the new pair until they're match ready.

    Tornado is probably the best headgear available, but it depends on your preference.

    Thanks, I will do that.
    I will probably get that headgear when my current ones are worn out.
    What do you think about knee pads? Will it help me get rid of mat burn on my knees?

    I always just bought volleyball kneepads and removed the 'bubble' to create a knee sleeve. Then it wasn't too bulky but protected your knee from burns, scrapes, etc.
