What Does It Take to Be A Successful Wrestling Coach?

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Definition of Success With some of the top Division I Wrestling Coaches positions up for grabs this off season, I have been reading about this person is a "marketing guy" or this person is a "technique guy" and it got me thinking... What does it take to be a successful wrestling coach? Before we get into what does it take, I think we need to first define what "successful" is. I am a licensed CPA in Illinois and I have to take Continuing Professional Education year. This year is a renewal year for my license so I need to make sure I have 120 hours of qualifying education in the past 3 years. One of the online courses I took...

ASICS Wrestling Shoe Update for 2018 Season!

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


  Better Buy Them Now Before They Are Gone ASICS wrestling shoes this season for us have flown off the shelves. Luckily we had a pretty good idea that we thought the Black and Gold Aggressor 3 was going to be a hot shoe, but even we did not buy enough of these shoes.  Hindsight is always 20/20 but we definitely should have picked up some more Aggressor 3 wrestling shoes is just about all the colors. Even colors we boosted with additional in season purchases, are basically sold out on our website.  Bottom line, is take a look at what we have in stock and if we happen to have your size, best to pick it up now.

New ASICS Video with Steve Aoki - Jordan Burroughs Too

Posted by Bold Commerce on


Met with our ASICS wrestling rep the other day and he talked about this video with Steve Aoki and Jordan Burroughs and some of their other athletes.  It's part of their "I Move" campaign. I thought it was a pretty cool video. Must say I was motivated to get in better shape after watching this video.  Interesting to see as of December 13, it had over 12,000,000 views.  And of course be sure to check out all our ASICS wrestling shoes and ASICS wrestling gear on our site.

Retired Nike Wrestling Shoes If you remember the time a few years ago that Nike Freek wrestling shoes were selling for $300 or $400 a pair used, you'll appreciate reading this quick article about what is going to be retired for the 2017-2018 wrestling season.   Expect to see some new shoes from Nike closer to the season, some stuff we can't even talk about just yet.

Rest in Peace Youth Wrestling Shoes

Posted by Jeffrey Pape on


Don't Stall Ordering These Wrestling Shoes This year, expect few options for youth wrestling shoes. Especially, if you are looking at sub $70 price point. There will actually be more options closer to a $100 than ever before, but most youth wrestling shoes at what we consider entry level or a step above that entry level price point will be gone this year.  And with the fewer models, comes few choices of color. Most suppliers seem to play it safe with wrestling shoes this year. Expect to see mostly Grey and Black options for youth. Gone are the crazy colors and bright color options.  Here is a list of the shoes that will be retired this year (or have already been...
