Vintage BNIB 80s Adidas Boxing Wrestling Combat US 9.5

When looking up items for the keywords "shoes wrestling", I came upon a lot of athletic equipment that would be good for anyone with an actual interest in wrestling as a sport, as opposed to theatrics, as depicted in the WWE.  With vintage items from the 80s, we get a bit of both.

With a vibrant mix of every neon/fluorescent colour not under the rainbow, this is definitely representative of fashion of the time.  Even though it's more than likely of the highest quality (made long before we outsourced everything to China) and it's never been used, I don't see any serious wrestler (ie: one doing college-level sports) wearing this...unless they did want to make the transition to the WWE.
