Thread: Asics wrestling shoes

  1. #1

    Default Asics wrestling shoes

    Does anybody else think that Asics wrestling shoes are getting uglier and uglier. The lines the had a couple of year ago (jackel, splitv, live2pin, orginal cael's) I didn't think were bad but this year's and last's I think are horrible. Weird question I know but just wondering if I am the only one.

    They definitely are going away from their old designs. The only ones I really liked from the next batch are the Cael 3.0's... everything else is just a little too outlandish.

    I miss the old international lytes. The black and pink ones.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    even though some of the shoes dont look as good i think the new cael's are some of the best ones yet.

    the new caels are awesome... until you put them on your foot you'll have no idea... but the colors this year.. as far as caels... are great... navy old gold and white, black/sperpent, I guess the could do without the ISU colors but what are you going to do not give the man his colors in his own shoe... but I do agree that I would like to see some of the old styles come back as well.. Gables with the boot... or the Internationals Black and Silver or Red and blue... Grips I have no idea which Lytes your talking about but I never want to see a team wearing pink shoes... renagades wear those shoes.

    I Think they need to focus more on the color selection for the Cael.. they have two colors that don't sell, and a Black/Gold or Black/Silver option would sell like hot pants in the '80s

    I like the current Rulons, the black/gold aren't too flashy.

    Exactly. I had the original pair of Dan Gables, then got a pair of the Gable ultraflex, the coolest looking shoe of all time, although probably the least durable. I refused to get rid of them, literally had to sew all the tears up after a while.
