    My feet get really sweaty which makes me slip on a wrestling mat or on the vinyl decals in a cage. I looked into Cage Feet (ankle support with grips on the sole) but it specifically says on the website that they're not meant for everyday training.

    Does anyone make a similar product?

    This is specifically designed for MMA. Never used them, but if they work let me know.

    I've been thinking of trying a pair of these. I heard the Hayabusa ones wear out really quick on the grappling sole but there are supposed to be better.

    I have a few pairs of the Grapplesock Vx2's. They work well. They treat the sole with a friction spray of some sort. Thumbs up.

    I have the Hayabusa grips and they wear out really really really fast.

    That's what I heard too, reason I decided to pass on them. I was hoping the Grapplesock was better.

    Can you just tape you feet? Would that work?

    At that price it seems like a better choice over tape. You're guarunteed non-slip action AND you don't have to wrap it everyday.

    I've been using the Hayabusas for a couple months now and my replacement pair's been holding up really well.

    Really? Mine were very worn out even after the first use, I've only used them maybe 4 times and they're pretty useless now so I don't wear them anymore.

    There was apparently a batch that was faulty and I emailed Hayabusa about it, they sent me a replacement pair and the dots on those were better than the initial pair that I originally got.

    Never knew they made one. Although much more expensive than the Grapplesock it still looks interesting. I wonder how the two compare.

    They are really durable, I have been using mine for about 6 months and not had any issues.

    Thanks. They sound very good and are the cheapest of the 3 available options.
