    Hey guys,

    I just purchased some new wrestling shoes. I was wondering exactly how tight wrestling shoes should be while wearing them. As of now, they fit like I would wear a normal pair of shoes. Comfortable, tight to foot, but they have some breathing room. I feel as if it feels a bit loose sometimes. They feel fine for walking around in, but while practicing a shot it feels like there is too much ankle space. Should I return these shoes and get a new size?

    It's personal preference, but I like mine snug to tight. And they'll loosen up over time.
