    I'll be attending the Army's Level I Combatives school in March and will be required to bring a pair of wrestling shoes.

    I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA about ... well, alot of things ... but need advice at this time on wrestling shoes.

    Any suggestions?

    Don't borrow shoes from any high school wrestlers in Minnesota.

    Here is a link to wrestling shoes sold at The Sports Authority.
    I don't know much about wrestling shoes, but since these are classified as such, you may be able to use their manufacturer and model number to find something more local.

    When in Europe, don't wear bluchers with a suit. Wear balmorals.

    They're actually quite comfortable. They feel like slippers. Of course, they won't give your feet much support in the outdoors. Asics or whatever is a big seller of them.

    Wrestling shoes are very comfortable.
    I wore Asics, a very common brand, back in the day.

    Go barefoot like Superfly Jimmy Snuka. Or get those ninja tabis like Ricky Steamboat.

    They don't recommend barefootedness at this school. Mat burns are pretty common, I think.

    Forgot to mention that the situation is taken care of.

    A buddy in my unit is a boxer/wrestler/mixed martial arts fighter. He called one of his sponsors, and they're hooking me up with a pair of nice ones, apparently. And some type of souped-up mouthpiece, too.

    Whatever you do, don't get your shoes from sportschick. ;D
