I thoroughly recommend this excellent blog to anyone who, like me, enjoys their Feiyue sneakers!


ASICS Wrestling shoe survey

Those excellent people at Worldwide Sports Supply have done it again. This time, the opportunity to vote for your favourite in a range of excellent new colorways for the classic ASICS Dan Gable wrestling shoe. Click on the blog title to visit the survey.

Here's the one I voted for (as did many others). Shades of a classic Adidas Combat Speed colorway here, surely?

All Stars Weekend - Part 1

This weekend I shall be wearing Converse All Stars exclusively. On Friday evening, it was these:

Vintage wrestlers - from the 80s

All Black Tyguns

New Feiyue black hitops

They've arrived! I love how they come in a brown paper parcel, tied up by their own laces, instead of a box!

More soon....
