Adidas Box Champ Speed II

Adidas are bringing out a new version of the Box Champ Speed, which I consider to be their greatest boxing boot ever. This is one of a number of new boxing and wrestling models coming out in time for the 2008 Olympics. A more detailed review from me soon, but here's the boot:

ASICS Dan Gable Ultimate - Multi-view

The site of shoe retailer contains a neat multi-view function, giving you a neat "all-round" view of the shoe. Here's their treatment of these neat Dan Gable Ultimates, which I really like in the yellow.

Red Nikes and Yellow Asics

Congratulations and thanks to "grapeviner10" who's posted this video of these superb red wrestlers over on youtube.

And these smart yellow Asics Split Second V's have been catching my eye too!

Chucks the way they used to be

This pair of vintage USA-made chucks were for sale recently over on eBay. Chucks the way they used to be. Awesome.

Adidas Hercules

Classic adidas wrestling shoes, in white and black versions, as seen on two recent eBay auctions. It's a pity them don't make 'em like this any more.

Ever wondered what a whole warehouse full of wrestling shoes looks like?

Feiyue Martial Arts Shoes II

I blogged about these earlier in the year and I'm now seriously coveting a pair. They are basically a plimsoll - of which I consider the key charactertistics to be:
1. Canvas upper
2. rubber galvanised sole
3. Optional rubber toecap
But I can't decide whether I prefer the black or white model. I usually resolve such difficulties by getting both! These photos courtesy of auctions on eBay.
