Wrestling shoe fit...

A new, good-quality wrestling shoe will normally last a year or two depending on how much your child wrestles and also how quickly they grow.   Each wrestler likes to have his or her shoes fit differently, but it is a good rule of thumb to add a half size to a full size to your normal shoe size.  Remember that your children should have some room to grow so a thumb width at the toe is a good rule to follow.

 

Cost...

For children under a size 5.0 shoe the selection is limited and the price range is $33 to $44 depending on which brand you choose.  Once your son or daughter’s shoe size reaches a size 5.0 the price range is from approximately $35 to $130.  These high end shoes have more style, are constructed of more leather and less nylon, are lighter weight, have better soles and contain lace guard mechanisms.  Wide widths are now available in wrestling shoes.  However the selection is very slim and they can be difficult to find.  If your local sporting goods store does not carry them check to see if they can be ordered.  If all else fails I know that you can order them on the internet.

Color...

Manufacturers offer a selection of colors. Entry level and intermediate level shoes come in the standard colors of red, royal blue, and black. High end shoes are available in many colors such as orange, green, gray, silver and white with contrasting color trim. Women’s styles are also available in pink and other pastels.

Where to buy wrestling shoes....

The beginner or intermediate wrestler can find their shoes in the local sporting goods store however once you move to an advanced level you may need to go to specialty catalogues or the internet for the models that you would want for your child.  Major manufactures of brands wrestling shoes are: Asics, Nike, Adidas, Infinity, Brute, and Reebok.  Most High School Wrestling teams offer the option to purchase shoes through the coach or boosters in team colors.
