Flex your strength and style on the mat when you’re wearing the Matflex 6. This pair of Asics wrestling trainers feels light on the feet that you’ll have no problem moving at top speed. It is also flexible, thanks to the mesh upper and the segmented outsole layout. And when you need to push forward, it’s high-top silhouette will keep your ankle supported.
If the style of the Matflex 6 seems too tame for you, check out the Asics Aggressor 4. Just by looking at this pair, you can already surmise how powerful it is on the mat. The audacious design of the outsole delivers exceptional grip and flexibility on the mat. Meanwhile, the almost-one-piece Ecsaine upper provides superior containment.
A full-length rubber compound lines the underside of the Asics Matflex 6. It delivers excellent traction on the mat, which is enhanced by the tread pattern. The discs allow for smooth turns on the mat, while the grooves aid with adherence and flexibility.
It features a segmented layout, similar to those wrestling shoes with split outsoles like the Asics Split Second 9. However, the Matflex 6 doesn’t have suede in the middle. This design promotes the flexibility of the sole unit for smoother transitions.
Inside the Matflex 6 is the ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) sockliner. This thin foam adds a comfort-giving element, so you don’t hurt your feet as you topple your opponent. The entire sole unit must be kept compact so that the foot can move like it does when it is bare.
An open mesh fabric wraps the top of the Matflex 6. It is soft and breathable, providing comfortable protection to the athlete. Synthetic overlays reinforce the heel, quarters, and eyestay against abrasion. They also add to the structural integrity of the upper.
As for keeping the fit snug, the tongue and the collar both feature a foam lining. The plushness locks the foot in place and prevents chafing. Meanwhile, the traditional lacing system allows wearers to customize the fit.
On the tongue is the integrated lace garage. This little pocket tucks the shoestrings so they won’t get in the way. It also prevents the aglet, the plastic or metal part at the end of the laces, from causing discomfort.
