Jordan Burroughs and Asics team up to create the latest in wrestling shoes. Burroughs is an American world and Olympic champion in freestyle wrestling who recently took Gold in the 2012 Olympics. As a dominant athlete on the mat, Asics issued a custom shoe to help him get the job done, the JB Elite.
The JB Elite is made with a single-layer mesh and skin-suede upper in a neo-retro style enhance durability. Seamless TPU overlays with a ventilated quarter-panel give the shoe superior breathability and comfort. Based on the specifications of the champion, the wrestling shoe features a Split Sole design which helps flexibility, traction and great direction control. A low-bulk integrated lace garage provides easy stow space so you’ll meet tournament regulations.
Jordan Burroughs recently went to the wrestling world championships in Budapest, where he brought his 60-match winning streak with him. He looks to continue wrestling in top form and even looking forward to be wrestling as far as the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. His match in the men’s freestyle competition in Budapest will take place today where he looks to continue his win streak.
You can grab these shoes today in sporting goods stores and on the Asics website for $85.
