Adidas Box Rival boxing boots. This photo is an old favourite of mine, taken way back in the days before digital cameras, by putting my foot into a flatbed scanner. Quite a good result, actually.

Vintage ASICS Wrestling Shoe Ad

If I were that guy on the left, lacing up in those classic split sole wrestling shoes, I'd be concentrating pretty hard on my shoes too! But I'm not so sure about the lady on the right...!
