    Default What makes Combat Speeds so Special?

    I'm about to buy some and im just curious? What makes these shoes so amazing? do they have great traction? durability? light? what?

    I take it you're buying them off of Ebay? Plan on spending at least $150 if you're buying shoes that are in good condition.

    The reason I like them personally, is because they're so light weight. It really feels like you're wearing a pair of slippers out on the mat. A good pair should last you about 2 years. From 6th grade thru college this was my shoe of choice. I tried the AdiStar for about a week in hs and had to return them. IMO no shoes comes close to the Combat Speed, I still can't imagine why they ever discontinued them..

    They weigh about double what the original combat speeds weigh & aren't as flexible.

    Exactly what Schlottke said.. I was used to wearing shoes that weighed next to nothing, then I tried the Adistar and they felt like I was wearing boots in comparison.

    All I'm sayin is since I've been wearing those shoes I haven't felt comfortable in any others. Not trying to sell you, just my personal preference.

    Honestly there isnt much more than whats been said, but if you can get a pair, do it I think you'll be pleased.

    I had a pair that got away from me and I regret it.
