My husband is a fan of wrestling. Monday night and Friday night is his tv time watching WWE. Usually it comes on every 9:00 pm and ends at 11:00 pm. Way back in high school when I started to hear about wrestling sport and then I began watching it as well but not as a die hard fan. It ended though when I was in college as I was living in a dormitory and seldom we can access to watch television.
Anyhow, now that I also watch wrestling with my husband, I am wondering of the gears that they are using while in that ring. I know for certain that when it comes to apparel, shoes, and accessories every sport have appropriate design or certain specifications. When it comes to wrestling, the shoes they are wearing is very different than those you use when you play football, soccer, or basketball. I saw this asics wrestling shoes that has a fun design to it. For sure, those that are playing in WWE have their shoes specifically made and fitted for them according to their style.
I learned that wrestling shoes are designed to mimic the bare foot and is soft, form-fitting and should be durable. Shoes that will reduce weight and enhance flexibility of the wrestlers but still maintains traction and durability when they’re moving around. It is made with high-top design to provide support and cushion for the ankle. I also read that some power lifters find wrestling shoes to be useful because it provides little shock absorption when they do lifting.
I know some high schools have wrestling as sport program in their school. Parents who allow their kids to play this sport should also make sure they have proper gears to wear to avoid and prevent any accidents or diseases they may encounter while playing. It is very much important to follow rules and specifications for the gears to be used as it is vital for the players safety.
