I don’t know why you wouldn’t want a shoe that’s well constructed, though. I’d be nervous squatting any real weight in Chucks with a wide stance.
I’m with Dan on this. The thing that changed my thinking about Chucks was the time I was trying to untie my knotted laces with sore, swollen hands after a workout. I got pissed and just yanked the laces hard. I figured the laces would break. Nope, the whole damn shoe ripped in half. Somehow, I think I remember the Chucks that I skated in in the late 80’s were a lot tougher. [/quote]
Yes thios is why I opted for taking the insoles out etc the closer youy are to the ground less between you and it the less pressure on the actual shoe etc. Leverages. Heck Id love to have had wrestling shoes but man those things used to be cheap now for a bit of fabric they charge and arm and leg. I go wioth these for next to nothing and they seem to work great.
Buit by all means yes I would say wrestling shooes and lace what ever it is Tight so is like not wearing a thing no slip etc.
