First video action

My first attempt at a video post. Thought I'd start by showing these wonderful old Bata Bullets. Can't help wishing they were still regularly used on the mats today.

"The Last Wrestlers"

I stumbled on this book today during my lunchbreak and I had to have it. As a pleasant change from endless cretinous WWF books full of twattish fake wrestling I was delighted to find this book, by Marcus Trower. It looks like a genuine appreciation of real, physical man to man wrestling. I reckon it's going to be a great read and I'll tell you all about it when I'm done.

Why not pick up a copy? It seems to be easily available through all the online book retailers!

Top Plimsoll Source

Having had a pop at Office recently for retailing deeply average plimsolls for twenty-five quid, fergodsake, I'm happy to give fellow plimsoll lovers a recommendation this time.

I strongly recommend that you pay a visit to if you're planning to purchase a pair of plimsolls. Not only do they sell the finest plimsolls around, they also have some of my photos there too :D Prompt service, great price, ace plimsolls. What more could you ask for?

Here's my nice new pair. Thanks Si! Just as my current pair were getting pretty beat up, too!

Serious wrestling shoe lust

Sometime a pair of wrestling shoes just get you "right there". I need a pair of these vintage wrestling shoes (just re-issued and being drooled over by me at so bad I got an ache in my guts!

Guess the Sneaker #1 - the answer

Here's the full photo, guys! You guessed the right brand (the easy bit!) but not the shoe. It is, of course, the Asics Mexico 66. Lush shoes.

More "Guess the Sneaker" very soon ;-)

All tangled up

Great photo! These two wrestlers couldn't be in a tighter knot if they tried! Love the way the wrestler on the bottom is twisting his black adidas shoe right into the body of the controlling wrestler. Love it!

Guess the Sneaker #1

Can you guess the name and brand of this sneaker?

I've had these boys sitting mint fresh in their box for about a month now. They need some attention!

Must have these

Well here they go again at Adidas, bringing out boxing boots I just gotta have.

This is the Adidas Box Hog. (Wasn't he the fat guy in the white suit in "The Dukes of Hazzard?) These are hot as heck and I'll be lacing up in them just as soon as I can get my greedy little hands - and feet - on them!

Wrestle poster

In a previous post, I said I'd have a try at a home made wrestling poster.

Waddaya think?

The great plimsolls rip-off

New white plimsolls
Originally uploaded by boots160.
Plimsolls, once held in contempt as the sneaker for infants, are now all the rage and I for one am pleased to see it.

Like many British kids, I wore plimsolls for school PE classes, hanging around in, climbing trees and fighting. Now I'm wearing them again.

But when these things are made for pence in developing countries like India and Pakistan, how can a shop like Office reasonably charge £24.99 for them fergodsake?!?!? Out of order, surely? My advice would be to get them where I got this lovely pair - eBay.
