And I really wish you could still get those Adidas boxing boots!

Lacing Up

Of all the photos I've posted on Flickr, the shoes I most get asked about are these vintage Adidas Combat Speed wrestling shoes. So here's a movie of me lacing mine up.

Sorry guys, they're still not for sale.

Bunches of Chucks

As the title suggests, some bunches of chucks. As posted on various groups on Facebook.

Whilst there's no finer sight than a large collection of Converse All Stars, am I alone in thinking that a lot of these variants just suck?

Shoe Inspection

One of the many things that makes me a rather poor wrestler is the temptation to check out my opponent's gear (especially his shoes) instead of concentrating on the match. This photo seems to show a wrestler making the same mistake. He seems to be having a damn close look at that awesome Adidas Elite International wrestling shoe. And who can blame him? It's a great shoe (now, sadly, very rare) and this one's seen a lot of combat!

Another very interesting set of photos posted for an eBay auction. Now why can't they make wrestling shoes like these anymore?
