Best value shoe @ Academy’s; legitimately fit like Aisic Aggressor I & II’s. I purchased these for my son, & have lasted several seasons so far and still going strong! Forgot the cheap China Made Nike’s! Aisic is where it’s @ when we’re talking about Wrestling! And yes, it’s 2020 therefore everything is exported. However, these are still Aisics that are made in Vietnam typically; & they’ll outlast any other brands you could get other than minus maybe “2-3 other Adidas & 1 Older Nike Model”. If you’re spending a little more, go with the Aisic Aggressors II, or you can never go wrong with Cael’s/or Gables Aisics! However, I give these a 5; rather than 4; due to the fact that they’ve held up in high level SC Wrestling. From Youth, to just now starting Varsity as a Freshman. And I even bought a pair for myself since they’ll price match, & they’re not just for “novice/intermediate” wrestlers. Of course you get what you pay for; but again....these quality for the price is by FAR the best deal Academy carries! I use mine just for coaching my Youth Club Team; & so far they’ve lasted 3+ years & still counting. And I wrestled collegiately, & have used them in freestyle tournaments; along with old teammates who’ve came to our Practices. They’re working great and I highly recommend them for anyone from Youth all the way to the High School level!
