Adidas HVC 2 Wrestling Shoes
The Adidas HVC 2 is the ideal wrestling shoe for beginner and intermediate level wrestlers who want to take their training seriously and need something simple, reliable, and comfortable to hit the ground running. Although the visual design is nearly identical, don’t confuse this with the original Adidas HVC shoe. The new and improved HVC 2 is made with upgraded materials and even slight design changes that make it more comfortable, more durable, and better looking than the previous model. Overall, it’s a very lightweight shoe, featuring a single layer of mesh on either side to provide excellent ventilation and added comfort. The structure and support of the upper is made up of a mix of both synthetic leather and synthetic suede. Both are very durable, and offer the form-fitting shape that will help keep your feet stable during intense training and competition. What really makes the HVC 2 a great shoe for newer wrestlers is the full-length rubber outsole. If you look through all the different shoe options, you’ll notice quite a wide range of different types of outsoles. Some are extremely minimal split soles, and others look like someone slapped a tractor tire on the bottoms. Most wrestlers will lean one way or the other after a few years, but starting out with a basic full-sole that is still very flexible is the best of both worlds for someone who is just starting out. Finally, they come equipped with a convenient elasticized lace strap to keep your laces from coming undone during a match. This eliminates the need to tape your laces, and makes the HVC 2 legal footwear for any folkstyle, freestyle, or Greco wrestling competition.
