Does anyone know where I can buy wide cut boxing shoes?

Almost everything that I saw on1ine are narrow cut.

Also, It'd be great if you could point me to a site where I can buy boxing shoes on1ine.

my suggestion to u...go to a shoe store that sells matt shoes aka wrestling shoes.

adidas and asics tend to be wider than the normal boxing shoes. u won't always be able to find the brand/style u want that fits the way u want it....but function is more important. ringside, everlast and all the others will let u order and if it doesn't fit proper u can always send them back (usually free shipping.)

That's another option I'm thinking of.

So, in terms of function, wrestling shoes are the as boxing shoes?

I'm thinking of ordering them on1ine and have them shipped to my country by Johnny Air.

I guess, I'll go with Asics wrestling shoes then. Or, if someone could point me to a direction where I can buy an Asics or Adidas boxing shoes on1ine that'd be great.

Thanks a lot, man.

I've read on most reviews that Asics shoes runs narrow even though they are supposed to be wide.

What can you say about Everlast shoes? Are they narrow as well?

I tend to twist my ankle (although I'm able to recover from it before falling) sometimes whenever I'm cutting someone, so I guess I'll go for shoes that have ankle support.

I don't think Asics wrestling shoes are narrow.  I always preferred Adidas though.

u can probably find them locally for a lot cheaper. i'd go directly to asics or mizuno to see if u can't cut out the middle man.

I might try that. I'm also contacting a friend based in Japan.

One more thing,

I asked a boxer/friend about wrestling shoes, and he said that they have more grip on the mat which prevents a boxer to effectively pivot.

On another hand, boxing shoes sometimes doesn't have more mat grip for pivotting.

Any thoughts?

Dang, I'm still torn between getting a wrestling shoes or a boxing shoes.  :lol:

break them in...

if u are wearing them day to day in the gym....you'll find that it will get easier to pivot as time goes on. when they're brand new...it's a little more difficult.

I see, thanks for the advice. I guess I'll try them both.  :)

I have wide feet and my Adidas Tygun boots were always comfortable, just lace 3/4th.
