We got these for our five year old for his first year of wrestling and he says they totally make a difference and that they are so comfortable. He loves them!

Felt, looked, and fit like a wrestling shoe. Fit was snug/tight; again, like a kids wrestling boot. Absolutely zero support in the arch. Do not buy this for any child who is moderately to highly active in gym or court sports.

I bought these for my 5 year old son who has a size 11 wide foot. He tried on the toddler sizes 11 and 12. His wide foot couldn't even make it into the 11! We kept the size 12 and he says they are comfortable. He does a lot of running in these sneakers during wrestling practice and hasn't complained at all about discomfort.

I have used Zappos for years and they have never let me down. Can't find shoes for my little girl wrestler, age 4, but Zappos had them. Always go with Zappos; they will never let you down.

I purchased these for myself and they worked out perfectly! The only thing I wish was that they came in different colors. They are true to size and the best part is that Zappos got them delivered to me within 24 hours!

I am an adult female and usually wear 6.5 running shoes. I have used Asics youth wrestling boots for martial arts for years. Just wore out my old pair and this one did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, this one has the best arch support yet. Minimal due to the style, but definitely there. Highly recommended.

This was my first time buying shoes from this site and it was also my first time buying wrestling shoes. I wasn't sure what size to buy my son because as you all know, shoe sizes are all different from one brand to another. I absolutely loved the printout of the foot and its' accuracy. The shoes arrived on time and in perfect condition. I will be a return customer for next year's wrestling season. Thank you!

I am a 29 year old female who has started weightlifting more and competing in bikini bodybuilding competitions. On my "leg day" I needed a shoe that helped me feel more like I was lifting with bare feet (this helps with stability when you're doing heavy lifting like say squats). I saw another bikini competitor had purchased these same shoes (yes, in boys size also) and wanted to try them out since Zappos' return policy is so awesome. These did not disappoint. They are snug and comfy and lace up well. The grip on the sole is awesome. I feel steady during heavy sets. I'm so glad I bought these! (I would wear these out and about if I didn't care about ruining the soles!)

Fast delivery, comfortable fit for our son and he loves them! Great wrestling shoes and he's glad there isn't a Velcro strap at the top like many other brands.

I ordered these for my 5 year old who is small. It's so hard to find wrestling products for small kids. Zappos got them to me quickly and we have been using them ever since. So far so good.

This is the 5th pair of Asics "wrestling" shoes I've purchased. The kids always outgrow them before any signs of wear. We are a kung fu/physique training family and each of us has at least 1 pair. I cannot speak highly enough of these shoes.

I bought these for my 7-year old and we had a challenge getting them on and tying them. I solved the problem by getting Nathan locking laces. Also, the shoes run small and narrow, we sized up. The shoes are good quality.

Bought a 10 for my toddler who usually wears a 9 and I couldn't even get the shoe on. They are extremely narrow and run very small. I was disappointed because I love the style but am not convinced that a couple sizes up will even be wide enough. They are really cute but consider size when ordering.

My son loved these shoes. He has been wearing them for about a month and now is limping and saying the bottom of his feet hurt. The shoes are probably okay for walking around but not for running around on the playground. There is just no padding at all.
