The ASICS Snapdown 2 is the new and improved version of the Snapdown, the ultimate mid-level wrestling shoe. Perhaps you’ve been wrestling for a little while now, and it’s time to replace that first pair that you either outgrew or wore out in a matter of weeks. If so, this is for you. The Snapdown 2 features a full-length solid outsole, that is flexible, while providing wrestling-specific traction in key areas for better control on the mat. This new outsole design was made to be incredibly low-profile, while providing superior grip, as compared to entry level models like the Matflex.
One of the main improvements that has been made on this update is on the upper. The combination mesh and suede upper has been redesigned to have stronger, more durable materials, as well as a more up-to-date appearance. Synthetic overlays provide some added support. The mesh layers of the upper allow for great ventilation, so you can feel the soft, cool breeze of wrestling room air on your feet. Of course, the interior is lined with soft padding that helps the shoe form nicely to your foot and avoid any annoying discomfort or pinching when you take these puppies into battle. The tongue is also lightly padded and includes and integrated lace garage to hide your laces during a match. Note: please tie your laces first, before tucking them in. Loop, swoop, and pull…
This shoe is ideal for a mid-level wrestler because it is designed to be compatible with any wrestling style. For someone in their earlier years of wrestling, this is great because the highly specific personal style preferences probably haven’t come into play yet – you just need something that gets the job done and looks presentable. The more “elite” level shoes tend to take features to the extreme in one way or another. Some are incredibly grippy and rigid like boots, while others are extremely lightweight with less grip for the more speedy and agile wrestler. The Snapdown 2 provides a full grip, without overdoing it, and has a very flexible and comfy upper. It offers ankle support, but it’s not so much that it feels constricting.
