Real wrestling action

Congratulations and thanks to the guys at for sharing this superb footage of some genuine, and intense, submission wrestling, and congratulations on those NICE singlets! ;-) Why anyone would want to watch lame WWF wrestling when they can watch genuine, exciting grappling like this is totally beyond me!

Great wrestling image

More proof that black and white photography really works for wrestling images. Great expression on the cradled wrestler here, and you can really feel the exhilaration of the winning wrestler too. And I love those great vintage Asics wrestling shoes!

Boxing Boot Showoff

Very proud of these great old vintage boxing boots. I think they are called Adidas Fight or Knockout. Does anyone know?

New v Old

Two fine examples of wrestling shoes from Adidas, one from years back, one from more recently. Both good-perfoming shoes on the mat, no doubt, but which shoe do you prefer?

A fine array of adidas and asics wrestling shoes posted on Flickr.

A few pairs that I'd love to have in my collection! Lovely. NOTE: These aren't mine, so don't go asking me how much or what size!!!!
