    There are plenty of rubberized patterned sock soles. If these are truly specialized, and do not hinder grappling, I would definitely pick up a pair, mainly to use when visiting gyms.

    I saw them on a guy visiting from Japan a few years ago. I think he called them toe socks and said they were popular over there.

    Don't know about competition but I wear em and doesn"t feel any different then barefeet. I like em because my feet aren't getting torn up anymore on the mats

    Funny!! I used to wear the socks you get in the hospitals with the rubber on the bottom so you dont take a spill. I found while in traveling peolpe were wearing similar fighting socks. I picked up a pair of these socks that are awsome for stand-up and ground-work.
    For the cheap price i dont have to worry about nasty blisters and infections.

    Wtf is wrong with being barefoot? Wash your feet after class, and clean up any of your sissy mat burns.

    Lame.

    i agree-- some people dont have tough feet like you and i

    i would only buy them for grip--- but really i'll stick to my wrestling boots

    i guess theres a big market for this though

    Sorry dude i don't have your 218(????) posts, truth is I have been hittin the mats for 10 years now and banging in the ring for 15. My feet, hands, elbows and knees are all banged out. Saw these socks on a guy and wanted to know if anyone else has tried em. I personally could not care any less if you buy em or not. If you recall I only wanted an opinion on them because i like em, someone else might hate em but i'm at the point where I don't need to prove my worth on the mat by losing ten layers of skin everytime i roll.

    I sweat more than the average person so this seems like a good deal for me.

    From an earlier post of yours...

    "Just an FYI I have a friend who is putting out a new knee sleeve designed exclusively for grappling. It is going to be thin and elastic and have a thin silicon padding on the knee. I have tried the prototype and it is pretty good. He is selling it on the grapplesock.com website soon. No i don't get any commission just an FYI."

    I was right to think you were full of shit.
