Yep, that’s what your little one is going to be hearing from all his teammates as soon as they walk into the wrestling room with their brand-new Youth version of the Adidas Mat Wizard. Why? Because this is one of the highest quality wrestling shoes available to youth wrestlers – not to mention good-lookin’. The Mat Wizard’s unique design was originally created with the input of David “Magicman” Taylor to ensure that it would keep up with the demands of one of the world’s greatest wrestlers.
The first thing you’ll notice about this shoe is the outsole - there’s nothing else like it. Well… except for other models from Adidas that came out after they realized how amazing this new, revolutionary outsole was. The full-length outsole is made up of many small, flowing, molded rubber teeth that are overlaid on top of a very flexible fabric base layer. This means you get amazing grip all around, without sacrificing anything in the way of flexibility. The grip also wraps up on the inner side of the shoes to prevent any slipping from a staggered stance. In the past, wrestlers had to choose between having enough grip, and having enough flex in the shoes to move with ease through positions. Now you can have both.
The upper was designed with high performance, style, and durability in mind. The unmistakable three Adidas stripes double as TPU supports that help make the shoes last longer and keep their shape while providing a sturdy fit. Under those stripes is a layer of breathable mesh that wraps along either side of the upper and allows your little wrestler’s feet to ventilate while they’re out there laying the SmackDown on their opponents. The “base” areas of the upper are made of synthetic leather and synthetic fabric made for performance, offering a comfy, sock-like fit. The laces and ankle support come up fairly high to provide a secure fit, but not so high that it feels immobilizing. It’s the perfect balance.
On the inside, the Mat Wizard youth is reinforced with super comfy foam around the heel, and lined with a soft yet durable fabric that is made to hold up to intense training, sweat and the abuse shoes take from the daily grind. The die-cut EVA midsole offers stability, and a slightly raised heel, which helps you stay on your forefoot and ready to attack!
The Adidas Mat Wizard Youth wrestling shoe is unisex and is available in sizes 1.5-6. There is a little bit of overlap with the sizing between youth and adult. Adult sizes of this shoe ranges from size 4 to size 16. Unfortunately, it does not come in the smaller kids sizes like some other youth wrestling shoes; that is because this shoe is really meant for more experienced youth wrestlers that have outgrown the entry level pair that they started out with. Snag a pair of Youth Mat Wizards today and step into a whole new level on your journey to greatness!
Disclaimer: this description refers often to kids/youth wrestlers, but we are aware that there are plenty of adults and female wrestlers with smaller feet who also shop this size range. If this is you, we know that you are not a child. And you’re awesome.
