    It's a question of mobility versus stability. A unisole offers greater stability as the sole is cast in one piece. A lot of people prefer this if their favoured techniques are straight shots (singles or doubles etc).

    Others prefer the mobility of a split sole, many who favour high amplitude throws or techniques requiring a lot of pivoting in a circular motion (such as many Greco techniques) prefer the split sole.

    So it depends what you want? A more stable platform with less ability to rotate, or a more flexible platform that lets you perform more dynamic movements but with a little less stability? Either way Asics make great shoes, and it's more a question of preference, I'm sure either one will offer great protection and performance. Hope this helps.:icon_lol:
     
  4. As a wrestler, i never noticed a difference. if youre planning on buying asics, then whichever style you get is more than likely gonna be top quality. i loved the cael v1, but they no longer make those. ='( and those were a single sole. i primarily threw people, so it could just be that i broke in the soles to get used to the way i wrestled.
