As a wrestler, the last thing you want is to carry extra weight into a match. To help you maintain quickness and power on the mat, ASICS has developed the Cael V5.0. Dubbed "the wrestler's wrestling shoe," it weighs in at 7.4 ounces, an entire ounce less than its predecessor. Not only that, ASICS has redesigned the outsole for enhanced traction on the mat.

Retailing for $95, the Cael V5.0 comes in four different color schemes, so you can start your wrestling season in style.
