Nike Inflict 3 Youth Description- The Perfect Addition to Your Wrestling Gear Toolbox

The Nike Inflict 3 looks to bring the highest quality wrestling shoes to the smallest sizes of grapplers like never before. Dating all the way back to the late 90s, the Nike Inflict has been the hottest selling wrestling shoe the swoosh brand has ever made, and for good reason; the Inflict always performs. The only problem with these original Inflicts, the OGs if you will, was that they started out in the usual men's size 8. The only shoes for our future champions were the baseline entry level Nike shoes which many steered away from. Today however, the times, they are a changin’, and Nike has stepped it up with the new Inflict 3 running all the way down to a size 3. Never before has it been easier to get a high-performance wrestling shoe for almost any wrestler, no matter how small. Easy to tell from photos, the Inflict is unlike any other shoe available as the upper is made entirely of mesh making them extremely breathable and super comfortable. One of the most widely received reviews of the Inflict 3 is how comfortable they are and how they feel broke in right out of the box (be sure to check out the adult listing for these shoes, we have almost 50 reviews of them!).

So, if your tike is notoriously difficult to find comfortable shoes for, the youth Inflict 3 is most likely the solution to the problem! On the topic of kids, what’s up with not being able to keep their shoes tied? If that sounds like someone you know, the Nike Inflict has one of the simplest and fool-proof lace guards of any youth shoe available. A super comfortable Velcro strap wraps the ankle to keep your laces strapped down for the entire practice or match, while also remaining super stylish. So easy even a kid could do it! Pro tip, on the inside of the strap is a sneakily camouflaged elastic strap to run your laces through and keep them secured. Extra points to Nike for double checking their lace security! Along the bottom of the Inflict 3 is a grippy gum-rubber split sole that has a massive toe pad providing traction in every direction possible. Below that is a Nike Swoosh providing a pop of color that leads into a heel pad that wraps along the back of the foot. With lightweight and flexible grip, you’ll be able to stand your ground, even up to the toughest competition possible. Perfect as a first pair of wrestling shoes, or for the most seasoned peewee champ, the Nike Inflict 3 Youth will let you inflict your championship attitude on your next opponent.

At the end of the day if you’re looking to get into the sport of wrestling, there's only three pieces of gear you need to have: a head gear, a singlet, and a pair of shoes. So, if your shoes make up 33% of your toolbox, you may as well want a shoe that satisfies 100% of the time: the Nike Inflict 3 Youth.
