Default Wrestling Shoes

Can somebody give me a list of NOT online stores that sell wrestling shoes?

I'd like to get a pair for my martial arts classes so that I don't twist my ankle (always had that problem :( ). The reason why I'm requesting a non-online store is because I need to find my size as all shoes fit a little differently.

So far, I know:
- Dick's Sporting Goods
- Academy Sports

and I think:
- Foot Locker

Hell, good wrestling shoes had to be ordered way before the internet... You may find em at some sporting goods stores or Foot Locker, but your best bet would definitely be online. If they ain't Asics, it ain't even worth the money IMO.

Do not know if you have these where you live but hibbet sports, Sports authority both carry them and they carry Asics and adidas. I used them for pro wreslting workouts because show boots are a pain to get on and off.

Thanks for the responses guys. I was able to find a comfortable, sturdy pair of Asics for $40 at Academy Sports.

Yeah, Academy is where I got mine years ago. Don't use them anymore, but the place I was training at the time used carpeted cheerleading mats, and I was constantly getting rug burns on the tops of my toes & feet (I favor side control, so I was in that position a lot). Thank goodness for smooth mats!
