I use my wrestling shoes from HS. i don't know if they're different. if they are, its probably in the ankle support. but boxing shoes range widely from the ankle area. some shoes are like boots, and makes the ankle rigid. some are like shoes, almost exactly like wrestling shoes.

Wrestling shoes are almost identical, just without alot of ankle support. They will work fine, But if you really ever need some, I know Everlast has real nice shoes. I know you're not looking to order but, just a tip :)

From what I see, boxing shoes aren't even mandatory.
Can't you just wear sneakers like some Nikes or something..

true that especially training u want padded shoes or else u get shin splints a lot easir so get something with a good sole. then when u are sparring get some shoes that have light soles to resemble your feet as much as possible so u move easier

These are the best boxing gym shoes, just a simple pair of Nike cortez(buy Nylon not leather). there the perfect weight, grip, etc.

I have worn wrestling shoes and there isnt much difference, i think there heavier in general.

that is the good thing about boxing, u can pretty much wear any type of shoe. Depends how much u wanna spend, i know some fighters who have fought for national and state titles, who still borrow shoes or wear there sneakers. also, some fighters can't afford a good boxing shoe.

wrestling shoes are very good, they still have ankle support but are much more convenient

now i have come to the conclusion that wrestling shoes are no different from boxing shoes

East bay only carry wrestling shoes right
how come in their wrestling section they have shoes
thats at titleboxing catalog and website
the same style

Eastbay style (http://www.eastbay.com/catalog/productdetail.cfm?TID=5555-53060501370153010264174-0&supercat=sports&model_nbr=44696&sku=3029093&module=sports&action=viewMVPicks_Wrestling%20Shoes&zone=1&grid=12)

Boxingshoes.com style (http://store.boxingshoes.com/boxing-shoes-asics-aslt-2.html)

same shoes right

now ive also went to models and they only carrie wrestling shoes right

well in their wrestling section they had these

NIKE SHOES (http://store.boxingshoes.com/boxingshoes-nike-lo-pro-boxing-shoes.html)

which are they boxing or wrestling

not only i btu a few guys at my gym have them
whats the real difference
between boxing and wrestling sneaks

or is there one in the first place

if different stores are advertising them for different sports

whats up with that

heres one more

boxingshoes.com shoe (http://store.boxingshoes.com/boxingshoes-adidas-combat-speed-boxing-shoes.html)

modells advertised wrestling shoe (http://www.modells.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1280684&cp=711660.693844&parentPage=family)

is one store lying or are they both telling the truth

thats a bad idea especially if your flat footed like me you will get shin splints real easy
