ASICS Cael V5.0 Wrestling Shoes

words // Brandon Richard

In short, Cael Sanderson is one of the greatest modern American amateur wrestlers. His resume speaks for itself; Olympic Gold in the 2004 Athens games, undefeated in four years of college wrestling at Iowa State and four consecutive NCAA titles between 199 and 2002. Sanderson is the lone Division I NCAA wrestler in history to post an undefeated record in official matches with more than 100 wins. He’s now the head wrestling coach at Penn State University, where he has led his Nittany Lions to two National Championships.

Like Cael set a new standard in the sport, ASICS looks to set a new standard in wrestling shoes with the introduction of Cael’s latest signature boot. An embodiment of Cael’s greatness, the ASICS Cael V5.0 weight in at about 7.4 ounces, a full ounce lighter than the previous version. Air mesh paneling provides breathability during heated competition, while a newly designed outsole offers enhanced mat traction.An integrated lace garage helps wrestlers avoid tripping over their laces and conforms to regulations.

If you’re looking to hit the mat in fresh gear, four colorways of Cael’s newest ASICS wrestling shoes are available now.

Available: ASICS Cael V5.0

ASICS Cael V5.0 Black Silver

ASICS Cael V5.0 Black Red
