    don't purchase any shoes for grappling. unless youre in highschool and competing in regular old collegiate rules wrestling forget shoes altogether, they're just a pain. ;)
  3. The "Split" means Split Sole.
    The Heel and the Toe sole are two separate pieces so your foot is more flexible.
    Not really a better or worse issue but a personal preference.

    Lots of guys at our Gym wear wrestling shoes but we aren't training specifically for MMA competition.
    I had a broken toe that I kept rebreaking so now i wear shoes full time

    Adidas Response...One pair that lasted me 2 years in high school and through my college wrestling as well. You don't wanna wear wrestling shoes for grappling outside of pure wrestling though.
