The ideal all-around wrestling shoe at an entry level price, the new mat flex 5 provides the excellent comfort and support that fans of this shoe have come to expect. The Matflex is known to run small and narrow, so you may need to order a half size to one size larger than your normal shoe.
A full length gum rubber outsole provides outstanding traction while enhanced breathability is provided where you need it most. Grip is pretty decent on this shoe, so no excuse if you trip on the mat in front of your girlfriend’s parents.
One thing you should look out for is the smell. Since the shoes are thin, they get saturated in foot sweat pretty quickly and can get smelly if you don’t clean them.
The Matflex is a good and reliable wrestling shoe at a low price. Be sure to buy a little bigger since this shoe is known to run small. Also a great shoe for weight lifting and boxing.
