Adidas Adizero Varner 2 Women's Wrestling Shoe - Black/Grey
Like version 1, the entire upper is made of a highly breathable, single-layer mesh that is engineered to be both incredibly comfortable and highly durable. The sock-like fit of this mesh layer gives the women's Varner 2 that lovely broken-in feeling right out of the box. They’ve made some slight changes, making it more tightly knit, to be stronger and more rip-resistant. It also comes with more reinforced stitching at the seams along the heel and between the outsole and upper. What looks like a snazzy design element is actually a thin vinyl and synthetic leather overlay that helps provide support and holds the shape of the mesh upper. While it is mostly a functional feature, we must admit, those lines give this shoe an extra “wow” factor that many elite wrestlers look for. One less noticeable, but important update, is the lace pocket at the top of the tongue. Now, you can finally tie up your laces and tuck them away neatly, without having to tape them or worry about them coming untied.
What has changed, you ask? Well, the most significant change that Adidas made to this ladies shoe is the outsole. While many people really loved the previous outsole of the women's Varner, not everyone was a fan. It was similar to the Combat Speed sole, in that it was very minimal with just two small areas for grip, and had a slightly more pointed toe and raised heel. Great for some, but we heard a lot of feedback asking for more grip and a more rounded toe box. Adidas must have heard the same things, because they added a ton of grip, using yet another entirely new outsole. The outsole is kind of a hybrid, has all the flexibility of a classic split-sole, and it comes with a narrow strip of rubber down the center so female wrestlers can maintain traction at all times. The heel is slightly rounded as well, to help you smoothly transition between stances and find grip in more positions. If you look at the way the molded rubber teeth align, you can tell this shoe is made for an aggressive wrestler who is always moving forward. The EVA midsole has a slight wedge shape to it, which will keep your weight a little more over your toes to help you take the action to your opponent!
