ASICS Split Second 9 LE

words // Brandon Richard

ASICS brings style to the mat by introducing their Split Second 9 wrestling boots in several eye-catching colorways. For those that favor camouflage prints, there’s a traditional Khaki/Black/Olive Green make-up that doesn’t find its way into the sport very often, as well as an unconventional Black/Silver/Red style with camo trim throughout. Perhaps even more likely to turn heads are the boots in Electric Purple and Neon Pink, each featuring tonal details and branding.

While the designs for these limited edition colorways certainly targeted aesthetic, the Split Second 9 is a packed with top-notch performance elements and is described as one of the best wrestling shoe values out there.

The Split Second 9 utilizes an open mesh build that is almost a full ounce lighter than last year’s model, tipping the scales at just 8.3 ounces. Once again characterizing the boot is the classic split sole design, which features two separate components that operate independently, allowing for improved flexibility and natural foot movement on the mat. An asymmetrical lacing design enhances comfort by reducing irritation, while an integrated lace garage provides additional security and conforms to regulations.

If you’re looking to stand out while grappling and still want a boot that ranks amongst the best in performance, pick up one of our four limited edition Split Second 9 colorways. Once they’re gone, they won’t be back!
