This shoe has been evolving and reinventing itself with each new version and has landed on a near-perfect design with this latest update.

    Very flexible shoe! Fits great and is lightweight, so great for shooting. I love the split sole instead of the regular "1-sole" - makes it easier for shooting.

    Shoes were light and durable. Lasted for a year and a half. Had great grip on the mat, but soles were run down after about 7 months.

    How's the width of these compared to the Nike freeks? Since the Nike freeks are considered a wide shoe would the width difference change the sizing of the Caels 7.0's?

    The Caels are much narrower than the Freeks.The difference in size of the shoe will effect the width of the shoe. If you have a problem with the width of a shoe try to go up half a size so it won't be as tight.

    Since the return of Nike Wrestling last year, we have been selling a ton of Nike wrestling shoes. The Nike Inflict is the best seller at the moment, next to the Nike Freek. The Cael is an awesome shoe and has been improved over the years, but Nike is on top at the moment.

    Debating on whether to get the addidas mat wizard or the Cael v7.0.... which should would you recommend based on reviews and comments made about the shoe?

    Joey P.'s picture

    Based on feedback that we have received in the store, a lot kids are liking the Mat Wizard. It has a better feel to it and it’s wider than the Cael’s. The Cael V7 are narrower and run small. The new Cael’s have been improved over the years, but kids do say that it is harder to get in than the Mat Wizards. But in the end, both shoes are awesome!

    on 18 Sep, 2016

    Do Cael V7.0 have good ankle support? I ask this because I just recovered from an ankle break. Also, I usually wear a 9 1/2 in asics...do I get the exact same size for these shoes?

    Joey's picture

    Hi Cassie, the ASICS Cael V7.0 runs much smaller than most wrestling shoes. If you are normally a 9.5 in ASICS men's wrestling shoes, you can probably stay at 9.5 or maybe go up to a 10. If you are a 9.5 in men's running shoes, then I would go at least 10, maybe 10.5. As far as ankle support, most wrestling shoes have decent ankle support because they go up higher than running or tennis shoes. However, none are specifically made to offer support for recovering from injuries. If you need something to really support your ankle while you recover, brands like McDavid and Mueller make great ankle braces that you can wear under your shoes. Or if you happen to have a team trainer, you can get it taped for your workouts until it's better. That being said - If you like ASICS, the Aggressor 3 is going to be a little more rigid and supportive than the Cael.

    Why should I get the Cael 7.0 instead of the Dan Gable Ultimate 4? What are the differences between both?

    Joey's picture

    Mike,

    The main difference between the ASICS Cael V7.0 and the Dan Gable Ultimate 4 is the upper. The outsole is the same for both. The Caels have a more lightweight upper with more breathable mesh. The Dan Gable has a bootie system, which provides a more snug fit and has thicker material on the tongue and forefoot areas. The Cael allows for slightly more width in the front of the shoe. Both are great shoes - it will depend on what you're looking for in a wrestling shoe. Keep in mind, both of these models run a little small. Most people go up a half size from what they normally would wear.
