As expected the Split Second VII are being replaced with what – you guessed it the Split Second VIII. This line is a nice step up from your basic wrestling shoe Asics offers. And at this price it provides a nice shoe for that second and third year wrestler who is not quite ready to spend the big money on the high end shoes (or for that first year wrestler that is looking for a little better shoe).
Unexpected (at least by me), was the dropping of the Rulon wrestling shoes. At least the name was dropped but the shoe looks very similar to the former shoe. We still have a bunch of Rulon’s and have some more coming in shortly (at least if all goes to plan). You can buy those at http://www.wrestlinggear.com
Let us know what you think of these shoes. These will be the only Asics shoes that will come out in July 2010. There may be additional shoes coming out later in the year from Asics. When we know, you will know!
Check back soon, we’ll post the Split Second VIII photos shortly.
