I've been wrestling for quite some time and like most other wrestlers in the sport you begin to get into obtaining nice gear. You obsess over getting that special pair of shoes that no one else has because there no longer made or sold in America. Well let me tell you I've been there I wanted a pair of Adidas combat speeds for quite some time. I've wanted to kolats, the kendell cross's, everything. You search the internet for hours looking for a sight that has them. You Google every possible word combination in order to try to get a different edge and maybe pull up a sight that has them. Well i'm here to share some of the tricks that i've learned over the years as to, how to find that pair of shoes or those college shoes that only the college wrestlers have.


Everything can be found on google, well just about everything. When your first looking for shoes make sure you check google first, if their not that rare chances are your going to find somebody that still has them in stock. Usually it's a not so popular sports store that can still get you a pair of that shoe because no one really knows about them. If the store you pull up looks kind of shady, than just jump back to google and google the stores name and then scam? That should usually bring up some forums of people that have wondered the same thing and people that are telling them if it's legitimate or not.


Ebay, if your looking for shoes be sure you check ebay! everyone and their mother has an ebay account and if your looking for something that's not really in stores anymore not only are their ebay store but there are also ebay sellers who have them. is the traditional ebay sight but here's a little trick try going on it's the ebay for Europe. Most sellers are more than happy to send to America, just watch out for the shipping that can get kind of pricey.


Yes, is a photo sharing sight. But if you go on a community of wrestlers has been formed. Their from all over and everyone has everything on that sight. I've gotten quite a lot of things from flickr. It's like an online wrestling community, you sign on and post pictures of your cool stuff, if you have something of value to anyone else you'll trade, or sell. Just beware of scammers this is not ebay so your relying on the person your trading with to ship their items as well. To find these wrestlers try a simple search once you log on if Adidas combat speeds, nike kolat speed. Find a picture, click on it and then find the other people that have commented on it and add them as friends. You'll get lots of stuff on flickr, most of the people on their are high school or college wrestlers so you'll be able to buy pretty much anything for the right price.

norm 6 years ago

I can't find any larger sized combat speeds. Ideally 13-14 but I might consider even squeezing into a 12.5 The ones I used in high school and college split through the sole. Got a line on any large ones? Preferably in teal. I'd drop some serious coin if they are in good shape.
