    Wow, that MMA shoe looks interesting. I wonder what the price of that will be by the time it hits the US!?

    Haha... I'd love for someone to wear those... it'd be like saying "hey, why don't you grab my ankle?"

    They aren't for MMA. They are developed for TKD but they reckon if NIKE do sponsor Rampage they'll adapt this design to suit MMA.

    "Fedor who?" asks the UK, American and Multinational consumer rep.

    I have only heard positive comments regarding the Nike Inflicts though (plus the discontinued Footsweeps).

    Have you actually owned a pair of Nike wrestling shoes?

    *Edit*
    Also heard good things about the Kolats.

    I see absolutely no reason for an MMA shoe even if they do custom make one. If i was rampage i wouldn't wear it lol. Cant see it being legal in the UFC either regardless of how they change it around.

    cause rampage is black and has a loud personality.

    and I'm VERY opposed to an mma shoe. Soon an 80 dollar mma shoe is gonna be a necessity and it's just one more thing I have to fucking buy to hang in the cage.

    UFC has nothing to do with 'allowing' it.

    The Athletic commissions are in control of that.

    as for the last image, apart from stopping matburn, I don't see how those things would really help in MMA :S
