has asics given any updates or additional info on where the gables will be sold or if they will be brought back?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Unfortunately, ASICS has not given any information as to where or if the Gable has been released for sale. Other than the few of these we have in stock, we are not aware of another way to get them at this time.
Are there anymore black and gold Dan Gables.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Unfortunately the only Gables we have left are the ones shown on the site. ASICS has discontinued the line with online retailers and when our current stock is gone we will not have any more.
These are the only sizes remaining?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: ASICS has discontinued selling The Gable through online retailers. All we have left in stock is what we are showing on the web. When these are gone we will not have any more.
The shoes are good quality, fit well and were shipped almost immediately after ordering.
Is it possible that asic will bring back the all white gable wrestling shoe? If so I would be interested in getting them!
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: According to ASICS the Gable is no longer at online sites and is only available at specialty boutique stores. The only Gables we will have are the ones remaining in stock.
Since you guys don't appear to have the all black ones anymore, do you know where i can find a pair of the solid black ones? I realize its an unusual request because that might be "taking" away a sale but I really need to find them because I got a solid black pair of shoes from my dad freshman year and after that season they were too small so we got rid of them, he passed away last month and I want to find a pair of all black shoes to pay tribute to him for my final season,he loved wrestling and supported me, and i need to find an all black pair.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The only information ASICS has provided about where to find these shoes now is that they have decided the Gable will be a specialty boutique shoe. While we have asked, they will not provide exact storefronts that they can be found at. We are very sorry; we wish we had additional information for you.
You're trying to tell me that a popular style is just being dropped for no reason? Asics has offered no specific rationale for this rather odd move?
Would Onitsuka start producing the shoes again?
I just don't get it. This is the only shoe I like. My 2 pairs are holding up just fine, but I was interested in purchasing more. Please explain this confusing turn of events.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We were as surprised as you! We had just completed our online survey to have people pick the new Gable colors, and found out while we were preparing to submit our order to have them made. It was one of our most popular shoes, and no real explanation has been given other than that it was no longer being carried by online retailers, and was becoming a specialty boutique shoe. We wish we had more information to provide.
what happened to size 5.5?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: ASICS has discontinued this shoe with online retailers. All we have left are what is in stock, and as sizes run out they are gone for good.
Awesome shoes! Great fit! Not for a guy who is going to worry about every scuff. They break in fast and feel better than any shoe I have owned (a lot less slip and slide while wrestling). Already won 2 matches in them!
how do these shoes hold up?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The Gable is a very popular and solid shoe. Like anything, it depends on the amount of wear they go through. These shoes are not intended for every day street wear. Use them only on the mat, and they should have a nice, long life. And if you have any problems with them, you can contact our customer service representatives and they will help you out.
How do these shoes run?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We would suggest getting one in the size of your typical gym shoes as they run pretty true. If the size is not correct, call our customer service department to arrange a return for a new size (as long as we have that size in stock).
i have an awesome pair! but they are getting old. online it says these shoes were discontinued for ONLINE retailers, will they be available any other way?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The official word from ASICS was that they were only going to be available through Boutique Fashion Stores, but no chains or names were provided. However, checking ebay for the shoes might not be a bad idea, and a number of people try to sell or trade their shoes using Flickr as well.
This is very classic and I really like it.. I was also wondering when the next color will come out and what color they will choose?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Unfortunately ASICS has discontinued this shoe with online retailers, so we will not be getting any new colors. The remaining stock we have online is all that is left, and when they are gone they are gone!
These are definitely going to be my wrestling shoes! Nice classic shoe!
How many red white and blue do you have in stock?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are getting low in Sizes 6.5 and 12, and are out of 12.5, but have good stock in the other sizes as of August 31st, but that probably won't last long. If you have questions about our products, please contact our customer service reps at 800-756-3555 and they can help you out.
My daughter really love this brand. She wear size 6 youth, will she fit men 5 1/2? or do you have any youth size in stock?
Worldwide Sport Supply Reponse: The Gable is only produced in Adult sizes, no Youth Sizes are available. With your daughter being in a Girls size 6, we would not recommend trying a Men's 5 1/2, as it will be much, much too big. If you have any more questions regarding products, please contact one of our Customer Service Representatives at 800-756-3555. Thanks.
how many more of the royal scarlet white shoes in size 11 do you have?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Currently we have a good amount of the shoe in stock. There is only one of the 6.5 and 12 sizes, and no 12.5, but other than that we currently have good stock. However, there is no way of knowing how long that will last, and this is a limited edition shoe, no more will be ordered when the stock is gone.
How long are these going to be out?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response:The Gable is not coming back. ASICS has decided not to continue with the shoe through online retailers. All that we have left is what we have in stock and when those are gone, they are gone. We have no plans to take them off the site until all of our remaining stock is sold.
These are the best wrestling shoes my son has had. How does the Onitsuka Tiger compare to these? He wants black or white so the old schools are not an option unless they can be redyed.
Worldwide Sport Supply Repsonse: The Onitsuka Tiger is exactly the same as The Gable, except for the branding. Wrestling shoes can be re-dyed. This YouTube tutorial series shows how to do it, Click here for Step-by-step Video
im looking for a shoe to buy, and im told these are the best shoes you sell, is this correct?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response:There is no easy answer to that, since each shoe brings different benefits to the table. The Gable is certainly one of our most POPULAR shoes, and wrestlers love the old-school style and say it is the best fit. But it is a simple shoe with no technological features, and at 10.4 ounces, the Gable certainly isn't the lightest shoe. Other wrestlers say that the ASICS Aggressor has more to offer features-wise, and has better ventilation, plus at 8.4 oz, it certainly is lighter. Another popular shoe is the ASICS Split Second which has a two-piece sole for better flexibility. As with most things, it will come down to your personal preference in style and features.
If I am a size 11 and I get an 11 1/2, will it be too big? Does this shoe fit smaller?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We suggest buying the shoe at your actual shoe size, it fits very snug and is meant to be sized accurately.
Does the quantity mean how many you have left?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The Quantity box is for how many you want to order. We do not list the quantity we have left in stock. When you click on a color to select it, the sizes that are out of stock will be grayed out.
How long are the royal/scarlet/white ones going to be out?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We will offer the Royal/Scarlet/White shoes until we run out of stock, but no more will be ordered for a size when we run out. When they are gone they are gone.
When are the other colors like teal going to come in?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Unfortunately ASICS has decided not to move forward with new colors in the Gable shoe for online retailers, so all that is available online are what we show in stock. When they are gone, they are gone... and no new ones will be coming in. We are as disappointed as you.
How much do they weigh? I'm looking for the lightest shoe I can find, no matter the price, color, design, or brand.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: At 10.4 Ounces, the Gable is NOT the lightest shoe due to the full leather construction. The ASICS Omniflex-Pursuit is the lightest at 7.3 oz., and the Combat Speed III and adiZERO London are a close second at 8.0 oz. each.
Why dont you guys have the Onitsuka?? Those are awesome looking shoes!!
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: ASICS policy is only to have those shoes available in brick and mortar boutique and fashion stores. They are not SUPPOSED to be available online. We wish we could offer these and other shoes, but some company policies limit our options.
These are awesome shoes, only problem I have seen is some of the soles don't seem to have enough glue on them and they peel off others seem to last forever maybe they changed the type of glue used? Also see that they are making the white with black stripes again?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Rarely, but every once in a while, we have a shoe that has a manufacturing issue. If any customer experiences such a problem with their shoe, just contact us and we'll take care of it. As for now, there are no plans for us to carry any new colors in this shoe. The remaining stock is all we have left.
Just got 2 pairs of the red/white and blue ones these are awesome shoes I have been wearing this style for 20 years, why would Asics not make them anymore there is almost an endless combination of colors they could use.
I am 12 and my size is 5.5, will they fit me?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We have 5.5 in all but the black version of the shoe, and it should fit you. While the shoe is meant to fit tightly, remember that your feet are still growing fast, and your shoe size will change very quickly. If you are looking to purchase this shoe, I would consider waiting until it is closer to your wrestling season, that way you'll have a better idea of what size you will need at the time.
I've always liked these shoes. I've read on other comments that Asics is "not going forward with the new Gable shoes." Does that mean that this is the last year they will make them altogether or will they make them again in the future?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Unfortunately we don't know what the future of The Gable will be with ASICS. Right now, there are no new shoes coming, and once our stock is gone, there will be no more Gables. If anything changes in the future, we will be sure to get the word out through our Emails, Facebook Page and our Twitter Feed.
I really like these shoes. I've heard that the red, white, and blue would be the last time they would make these.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We love the Gable as much, if not MORE than you guys! Unfortunately, due to circumstances completely out of our control, Asics has decided not to go forward with the new Gable shoes that we have been planning on. The existing inventory is all that is left, and it's almost gone, so if you would like to purchase The Gable shoe, we have all of the remaining styles available online.
We are looking at several opportunities for a shoe and style that would be similar to the Gable, but right now that is still in discussion. As soon as we hear more from our contacts at Asics and other manufacturers, we will let you know.
Check out our Facebook and Twitter accounts to stay informed of any updates on this story. If you have any feedback for us, we appreciate your thoughts there.
I got these shoes just before my first tournament and I originally was a little leery of the no padding but as the tournament progressed I couldn't believe how comfortable they are. A full season later and these things are still going strong. I love em!
When are the white ones going to be sold again
Love these shoes. Wore them for tournaments only and they lasted the whole season. Great shoe.
What happened to the all white ones?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Once we posted the shoes, we placed our order to ASICS, expecting approval to be a formality as that is how it's been since we started selling Gables back in 2006. However, this year ASICS asked us to wait for an approval. We thought this would have come by now for sure, but we’re still waiting! Thanks for your continued patience!
Do you think that these are going to be a pair of shoes that will only go up in value? Or will they be worthless in 10 years?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: There is no way to be sure that shoes will go up in value over time. This version of The Gable is not designed with the intent of being a collectors item, however if you search through sites like Ebay and even Flickr, you will see there is a market for classic wrestling shoes. Which ones increase in value though are impossible to know beforehand.
I read you can only wear the shoes on the wrestling mat, so if you jog on the gym floors and go walking around on gym floors, that might be why soles come off. Most guys probably aren't going to put on and take off shoes on the wrestling mats though.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Which is exactly why we recommend getting a pair of Cleatskinsfor your shoes to be able to leave them on and still protect them while you are off the mat.
Can someone tell me what the new colors that we voted on are going to be ?
Received these shoes as a gift. They look and feel great. I wear them in practice with no problems. The sole is much more cushy than I was expecting. One problem I've noticed is that the upper material, since it is leather rather than a suede/soft material, likes to grip the mat when doing certain moves. This may go away with time and wear. The only other thing that would make them better is to bring back the white/black combo.
When are we going to know what the new colors for this product are?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We have the results from the poll, but are awaiting final approval of these colors from ASICS. As soon as everything is cleared we will be making an announcement via e-mail and through our Facebook Page.
They look great BUT bought them as a Christmas present for my son and as of 2/1, they entire soles are coming off. At $100, I feel robbed.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: This sounds like a manufacturing defect and you are completely correct to be upset. We can fix this problem for you, so please call our customer service department at 1-800-756-3555 and let them know that your new Gable shoes have a manufacturing defect, we'll take care of you.
When will asics make them white with black stripes again?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Today happens to be the last day to vote in our poll to decide on the next round of colors for the Gable. Unfortunately White with Black stripes was not an option in our current poll, so it won't be one of the colors for next season. There are no plans to make that color scheme in the foreseeable future.
I'm looking for the black and gold in size 8 1/2. When will you guys restock on them? I understand the new colors will be shipped by fall but is it the same for the old colors that are currently out now?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The only Gable shoes being restocked in the spring are the royal/Scarlet/White (USA) color which are estimated to ship in April. All other colors won't restock until next season. Pre-orders will begin sometime in late summer. The Gable is a very popular shoe so we suggest getting a pre-order in as soon as they are available to lock in your pair.
Nobody ever talks about the grip in their reviews! Do they grip well? Is the sole more gummy or rubber like? Anybody know?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The grip feels like the same material as most of ASICS' current shoes. An old-school, simple outsole that is not technical, yet is tried-and-true. If advanced grip is a higher priority, the Cael, Dan Gable Ultimate, or Omniflex may suit you better. Aggressors are also known for outstanding grip, as long as the mat does not get wet.
This shoe makes you look super fly, but the only thing that I personally didn't like about them is that the leather gets wrinkled very fast. If you were to get these you would only really want to wear them on weekends or only certain duals in high school.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: In fact we only suggest wearing these shoes on the mat, not only to protect them but for numerous sanitary reasons as well. Wearing the shoes off the mat can pick up bacteria that you then carry into a match and can cause skin infections and other issues. Use a regular pair of sneakers for when you are not on the mat, or you could always get a pair of Shoe Skins to slip over your Gables to protect them too.
These shoes suck. they are the werst shoes ive ever bought. they only last about a month and theyy are 100 dollar shoes
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The vast majority of customers have loved this shoe. However, like any product, a rare few have experienced manufacturing defects. If your shoes had damage after only one month of regular on-the-mat use then this could be the case and you should contact our customer service department at 1-800-756-3555 so that we can help you.
Sickest shoes I've ever bought!
These shoes are sick. They are the best wrestling shoes out there for good looks and they are super light weight so you are twice as fast as any other wrestling shoe.
Will they make more wrestling shoes like this in purple??
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We actually have a poll going on to select our next colors. Go to our Gable Shoe Survey now and you can vote on which colors to include for next season! Unfortunately purple is not one of the choices this time around.
These are awesome and plan to order the new colors that come out but the manufacturer needs to glue the edges of the sole better, they tend to get chunks ripped off in a short amount of time around the edges.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Thank you. We are passing your concern along to ASICS so that they can be aware of any possible manufacturing issues, and we always want to know what experiences are customers are having with their purchases. As always, only wearing the Gable on the mat is the best protection for extending it's life span. We suggest getting some Shoe Skins to protect your shoes if you must wear them when off the mat.
I ordered them for my son and he said they were the best Christmas present ever! They are very good quality and the fit is perfect.
Awesome looking shoe. Very durable. But MUST bring back the black and silver Ultra suede shoes.
I wrestled in these back in the 90's in college, love them. Anyway, I bought the size 9 (black & gold) and when they are on I can put my thumb between my big toe and the end of the shoe (so I think they are an inch too big). My question is will the 8 be too small and should I say with the 9? My foot is a little wide not too bad but if I go with the 8 will it rip apart? I like my shoes to feel like slippers I am apprehensive of the extra inch. Let me know what you think, thanks.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The Gables seem to be running a bit tight on wrestlers with wider feet. We would not recommend going a size smaller as this will likely lead to some damage. It would be best to stick with the pair you have, or exchange them for another style. The closes fit may be our ASICS Aggressors or Omniflex Pursuits.
Will there be a 9.5 for the black and gold in the future?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: No new stock is coming in for these shoes this season. Due to extreme popularity they sell out fast! We are now running our Gable Shoes Color Survey to select next years shoes. Some colors may return, and some will be chosen from this new poll so vote for your favorite. Preorders for the new shoes will begin in February so we suggest ordering early.
i would like to buy these but my size(9) is never in stock. when do you guys restock so I can purchase a pair?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The only shoe getting a new order in will be the special USA Color, due April of 2012. After that we won't be getting more shoes in until next fall. Preorders for the shoes will start this upcoming February after the new colors are chosen from our current poll. We suggest getting your order in as soon as pre-orders are available to ensure you get the size and color you want. These go FAST!
What is the name of the all leather Nike wrestling shoes similar to this style?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We do not carry the Nike Wrestling shoe line, but after we did some looking it appears that there are no current all-leather Nike wrestling shoes available. To locate the vintage shoes you'll need to refer to ebay or even flickr to find people with that brand and style.
I have been looking online, and calling around trying to find a pair of these but in the pink with the black strip, I cant find these anywhere, please help.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We made a mock-up image of the Pink/Black shoe as a possible choice on one of our previous polls, but the shoe didn't get the votes and was never made which is why you can't find it. We will be having a poll of NEW Gable colors up on our site soon. While that exact color combination is not one of the choice, there may be something else there that you would be interested it.
broke in very easily. Very neat looking, original look, unlike others at tournament
Are you gonna sell Dan Gable wrestling shoes in teel again?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are having a poll very soon to decide on the new colors. We will send out e-mails, have banners on the site, and post to our Facebook page notifying everyone when the poll goes up so keep watching.
My son is 11 and he had to have tese to match a couple of singlets he has and he just loves them. We purchased the black/gold ones. Old School is coming back.
I have had these shoes for a month and they were great. I love them but the sole is falling apart and is detaching from the shoe.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The shoe is made of very light material and only meant to be worn on the wrestling mat. Wearing the shoe for everyday use or on the street will wear it down a LOT quicker. If these were only worn on the mat, then it sounds like a possible manufacturing defect. If you contact our customer service department at 1-800-550-6850 they can take care of you.
When can we vote on the colors?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are still in the final stages of finishing up that poll now, expect to see it online soon. We will send out e-mail notifications and post on Facebook when the poll goes live.
Is Worldwide sports supply the only company in the country that has these to sell? Even Eastbay doesn't have these and they are awesome shoes!
My boy has had them for a couple of weeks and they fit well and feel good. Now both shoes are falling apart at the heel and the sole is beginning to come off. I expect a bit longer wear time for cost. Next step is to contact Customer Service.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We will be contacting you directly regarding this shoe. There may have been a manufacturing defect in your pair. While the shoe is made with very light materials and should only be worn on the mat, and never for street wear, they should have a much longer life than what you have experienced. We will also inform ASICS about this issue.
My friend ordered the blue and silver ones and got a free beanie with them. If I ordered mine yesterday do I still get the beanie?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Sorry, that offer was only available while supplies last and we are now out of those Beanies.
Great shoe. I have been reading, and people been saying that they rip easily. Luckily, mine aren't torn or anything only because I don't practice with them. So if you want them to last, don't practice in them. That's when you really wear out your shoes. So use your freshman shoes... Otherwise, great shoe!
great shoe great shoe great shoe great shoe
I was thinking about getting these for christmas just to have another pair of shoes that are awesome! But before I make a commitment I was curious as to how durable they are? I hear some people say they rip pretty quick and others saying they never do, so I was looking for manufacture's advice?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Once in a while there is a legitamite manufacturing defect, in those cases they can be returned for a replacement or a refund. However, these shoes are made to be very minimal for a "barefoot" feel on the mat. Some wrestlers wear these shoes to class, on the street, or outdoors and that rapidly degrades the materials. In such cases, the shoes can't be returned for a replacement or refund. We recommend proper care of shoes to increase durability. This includes finding ways to wear them ONLY on the mat and nowhere else.
I'm looking for black on black wrestling shoes but you are out of the size I need. Will you be getting more or can they be pre-ordered?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The current stock of Black on Black ASICS Gables are sold out in most sizes. However, we will be ordering more for next season. By January, we will be offering them for pre-order so that you can reserve your pair. Also, we will soon be polling wrestlers on new colors of the old-school shoes, so stay tuned!
Awesome shoes! Just got them in blue. And they go really good with the secondary silver laces. Also how do I vote on the poll for colors I want?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The poll for the new colors is not up yet. When we put it on the site we'll be sure to announce it on Facebook, through e-mails and through banners on our site, so you won't miss it.
Do you guys have a 13 1/2 because if I'm going to order these in 14 they're going to be too long.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response The only sizes we have available are shown on the web. Sorry, but we do not offer a 13 1/2 size. Due to the fit of these shoes, a 14 might be a better fit than you think, and you can use our No Hassle Return Policy if the shoe doesn't fit.
How do the sizes on this shoe run? If I wear a size 8, should I order a size 8? Or do they run a little big/small? Also would it be a problem if I have a wide foot?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: If you wear a Size 8 gym shoe, you should order a Size 8.5. Wide feet could be OK. If you size up more, the shoe will be too long. Try them on, and if they don't work, simply return them for an exchange or refund. ASICS Split Second Wide is a go-to option for wide feet.
Great shoes. I just bought a pair of both blue and red. I love the old school look and the leather but it does take a while to break them in. Also great to wear as street shoes!
I ordered the all black shoes and when I got them they came with a magazine showing that the red white and blue shoes will be available in Feb. 2012 but the website says April. Which is correct?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The website is correct, they are scheduled to be available in April. Often we have to print our magazines or flyers in advance and go on the best information at the time from the manufacturer. They can sometimes change their dates after we have printed our materials. Sorry for the confusion.
When will the new colors be coming out? I want to order these shoes but i dont like the colors available right now.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are currently working on the poll for the new colors. That will be up in the next few weeks. After the polling period is over we will evaluate and place the order for the new colors. Pre-orders for those shoes will be available next summer for the 2012 season.
My son loves this product and loves the retro, full leather, all black style. The quality of material is excellent.
I ordered shoes that were too small for my feet, how do I return the shoes for a different size?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: You can start one of our Online Returns or simply contact a customer service representative at 1-800-756-3555 to start the process. Please note that if the shoes are worn, scuffed or show signs of use they cannot be returned.
The most uncomfortable wrestling shoes I ever wore. Shoes are so narrow a size larger still painful. Overpriced.
We weren't too happy with the color it was suppose to be royal blue instead it looks like light blue.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: If you are unhappy with your order and haven't yet worn the shoes, you can return them. We want to always make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. We are also going to review the images on the web and adjust them if needed to make sure they are as accurate as possible.
I am looking for the black on black in size 9.5 for my son. Has your shipment already come in, or can I still order these?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The shipment has come in, and most have gone back out to those who pre-ordered these shoes during the summer. The only sizes available are the ones shown on the site.
Is there any way to still order the all black in size 10? Will you be getting more?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The only sizes we have available in the Black/Black are shown on the site. If a size is out, it is out until next wrestling season. Response to this shoe was gigantic, and pre-orders claimed most of our inventory before it even came in to our warehouse.
need a size 11 in the black on black....HELP
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: These shoes are hot, and the Black/Black went fast. Currently only sizes 5-and-a-half through 7-and-a-half are available. Unfortunately we will not be getting any more shipments of the shoe in this year. The Black/Gold is still available in all sizes.
My son is having a fit for the black on black...when will they be available?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The only sizes available are shown on the site. All others are sold out for this year. We will open up pre-orders again next summer for next year's wrestling season. We highly suggest placing pre-orders when they first are made available in the summer. The entire stock of these shoes sells out FAST! There are still most sizes available in the other color options, and Black/Gold is fully available.
When will you guys have the black on black "The Gable" in. Can I pay & place a backorder?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are not getting in any more of the Gable Shoes this season. If a size is out on the site, then it is out until next year. We will open up pre-orders for these shoes next summer for the 2012 wrestling season.
Will the purple and white Gabel be available any time soon? Local high schools colors.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Right now there are no plans to bring back this color scheme in the near future. We are having a poll soon to pick the next colors, and one of the options is a shoe that has some purple in it. Keep your eyes open for the poll and let your opinion be heard!
Love this product. It took a little bit to get used to the high ankle support but once I didn't it wasn't a problem. It is a great shoe that is extremely comfortable, I stopped wearing them for practice after about a week of breaking them in just so they would last longer although they haven't been wearing too bad yet.
I was wondering how much do they weigh?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The shoes have a weight of about 9.6 oz. each.
I just ordered the all blacks, i was just wondering what the alternative lace color is that comes with them?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response:
I have a question. When I click on the red white and blue shoes it says that the estimated ship date is 12/6/11. Is that wrong?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: That is an incorrect date, and thank you for catching it. The shipping date of those shoes won't be until sometime in April next year. We will get that updated as quickly as possible.
I am wanting to order the all black Gables size 8 1/2 or 9 will you guys be getting more shipments for those and if so can i pre-order them now?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The All-Black shoes should be arriving soon. Shipping with ASICS has been the most difficult on this color. Once in, a good chunk are already claimed by pre-orders, but for a short time most sizes should have some availability. Our suggestion is to place your order on the web now, and if the shoes are available they will be sent right out to you on arrival. If they are not available you will be contacted regarding any options available. This is a very popular shoe with a limited stock made, and we are glad there is so much interest.
These shoes look sick. Do you know when the poll will come out about the possible colors and do you know any of the possible colors?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: The poll will be out soon, sometime during the busy shopping holiday season I believe. They are still working on the color options so nothing is locked down yet. Be sure you are signed up for our Facebook page as we will be announcing the poll there as soon as it is available.
My son was very excited to get these wrestling shoes. Season practice has started~matches will start later in November. He really likes the "old school" style and the black/gold color is his high school colors.
Son picked them out and loves them. Order was processed and delivered promptly.
I just ordered my second pair of the Dan Gable all leather Wrestling shoe Black with gold stripes. These are so comfortable I just couldn't resist. I have to admit I am using the second pair to drive my 1967 jaguar E type convertible which is also black. The quality in this shoe is all the way and I must add my sales girl was very polite and fun you guys at WWSS rock. Thank you again for the old school shoe they are perfect.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Glad you love the shoes so much. You should take a photo of you in the Gables in your convertible and post it on our Facebook Wrestling Page.
I am also looking for the black on black shoe but in a size 9 1/2. Do you have those in stock?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are still waiting on our order of the Black/Black shoes. We expect them at any time, but be warned that over 2/3 of our shipment is already claimed by pre-orders, and some size may be out already. These shoes are crazy popular, so our best suggestion is to place a pre-order now and we'll send you out the shoe as soon as possible.
So I want to order the black and gold ones. How long does shipping take and are they in stock. Im just wondering?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We currently have a full order of Black/Gold shoes in stock so if the sizes show on the website go ahead and order them. These shoes are very popular so we do not know how long stock will last.
Will you be restocking on the All blacks, size 11 or 12? I'm fiending for these shoes, and was going to order, but they literally went out of stock overnight. I was hoping maybe you had a few extra banging around in the warehouse or something. I'll pay up to $130 if its the last pair available.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are still waiting on our larger shipment of the all black shoe. However, those who pre-ordered these shoes will be getting their shipments before they go into stock on our website. This is over 2/3 of our entire order, so our best suggestion is to pre-order NOW and we'll get you your shoes as soon as possible. This is an extremely popular shoe, and some sizes may already be completely gone, and won't be refilled until our next order sometime next year.
When will you guys be receiving new orders for the All Black-ASICS The Gable™ Wrestling Shoe? I am looking for size 9 which is not in stock at the moment.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We just saw your review and immediately checked stock. We actually have 3 currently available in size 9, so we are sending you a direct response to your e-mail address to let you know. We just wanted everyone to be aware that we do read your reviews, and if you click the little box that includes your e-mail address we will be happy to respond and help out if we can!
yea im soooooooooooooooo aggresive about these shoes right now, i ordered this 5 months ago and the all black still havent come, get back to me. and everytime i try to post something on here it never goes through, this customer service is horrible.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Our review process is annonymous even to us, this lets people feel free to be honest, and we have no way of contacting you unless you click the button in the review section that states you want to be contacted by customer service, (this sends us your e-mail) or unless you contact our customer service at 800-756-3555. Since everyone is aware of the ASICS shipping issues, and since the stock has begun to come in to our warehouse and go out to our customers, we are trying to reserve this space for reviews of the shoe itself and not the unfortunate issues with ASICS delivery. We have been dealing with posts about shipping issues through direct contact with the customer rather than post all of them in this space.
Are you coming out with anymore colors?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We are going to be opening a poll on our site to vote on new potential colors sometime around the beginning of December. We will be sending out an e-mail when this poll goes live, so be sure to sign up for our e-mail notificiations. We will also announce the poll on our Facebook Wrestling Page so LIKE us there and you'll get the updates.
The new colors that just came out are amazing. Why are the shipping out in April? That is my school color and I want them sooner. I will be pre ordering those for sure.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: Glad you like the new USA color option. We created this mockup to coincide with the 2012 Olympics, and they won't be going into production until early next year. But place your preorder and as soon as they come in from ASICS we will ship them off to you!
Worldwide Sport Supply: We are VERY HAPPY to announce that The Gables have shipped from ASICS. We should have the product checked in to our warehouse and out to the preorders by Friday, 10/21. This is for the Black/Metallic Gold, Royal/Silver and Scarlet/Metallic Gold colors. We do not have information yet on the ALL BLACK versions of the shoe, but as soon as we do we will let everyone know!
Are the shoes really shipping out the 21st?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We cannot CONFIRM this shipping date. It is the date ASICS is currently telling us, however previous promised delivery dates have passed with no updates from ASICS. Until we have confirmed tracking information that tells us the shoes are on the way to our warehouse we are calling any shipping dates ESTIMATED.
If I buy these now when will they be at my house?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We cannot currently guarantee any delivery dates on this shoe due to issues with ASICS delivering the item to our warehouse. We contact ASICS daily looking for information regarding this shoe so we can fulfill the numerous pre-orders that have come in to our site. Currently ASICS says October 20th is the delivery date, but since we do not have CONFIRMED tracking information on the shoes we are still saying this is an ESTIMATED date.
I wish I knew when I was going to get my shoes that I ordered a week ago. When are they supposed to be shipped?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We wish we knew an exact date as well, we do not like our customers waiting for information. As you can see by the reviews, questions regarding The Gables shipping date and issues with ASICS providing them have been numerous. We work every day on expiditing the delivery of this product and as soon as we have confirmed information from ASICS we will get it on our site.
Now im really pissed your catolog says October well its almost wrestling and that means November so October is almost over and your catolog was incorrect. Give me the number for the shoe comp. and I'll call them this is just rediculous.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We understand your frustration and are hearing a lot of it! Our catalog is produced months in advance of it actually being mailed, so the information we put in it is based on what the manufacturer is telling us at that time. Months ago ASICS promised the Gables to be delivered by the beginning of October so that is the date we published. Currently they are telling us the shoes are ready to ship, we just do not have CONFIRMATION of it yet so we are putting the ESTIMATED date of October 20th on our site. We call and write ASICS every day regarding these shoes.
This is most likely one of the most popular shoes made and sold. For every one pair someone didn't like or the shoe didn't hold up, there are 100 pair that did and were loved. People only tend to say something when they have a problem so thats why it seems a lot of people are having issues with the shoe. Best shoes I've ever owned since the 80's. I still have every pair I ever purchased and I've had no issues with any of them tearing up. You can't buy a finer shoe.
Do you know that they will be shipped on the twentieth?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: We have changed the estimated shipping date to the 20th based on information ASICS has provided us. They say the shoes are in their warehouse and ready to ship. HOWEVER, with the number of issues we've had from ASICS regarding these shoes, and the fact that we do not have CONFIRMED shipping information, this is still an ESTIMTATED shipping date and cannot be guaranteed. We contact ASICS daily regarding this shoe and are trying to get our stock so that we can fill the orders we have as quickly as possible.
When are they really coming out? I really want to get them.....besides the red and gold ones i want the pink and black ones too.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response:< >We are as frustrated as everyone else about this shoe and are waiting just like you for shipping info from ASICS, the manufacturer of the Gable. The original date promised to us was 10/1, but that date passed and we have no firm date from ASICS. We are contacting the manufacturer multiple times each day looking for updates, and as soon as we have information we will be updating this product. AS for color, only the shown options are currently planned at this time.
I ordered them 2 weeks ago and its getting close to wrestling season I need them now tell me when they are shipping otherwise I will recall my money and write a bad report and tell all my wrestling buddies not to look at your website.
Worldwide Sport Supply Response:We completely understand your frustration! We are waiting to hear about shipping from ASICS just like everyone else. ASICS manufactures the shoe, and we have no control over their delivery schedule. We are checking on this every day and as soon as we have information we will get posted here immediately. If you have any concerns about your order, please call our customer service at 1-800-756-3555 and they will take care of you!
When are they going to be shipped, like the exact date?
Worldwide Sport Supply Response: There is a great amount of interest in these shoes, as well as the shipping dates. As soon as we have the exact shipping information from the manufacturer will have that posted immediately! We promise.
They look great! But I was wondering when they ship?
good but tear easily
These shoes were tight against the side of my arch, I went back to my old pair.
Agree...I would probably buy another pair if they would ADD A LACE COVER. Bought a pair of these last year. Agree with the reviews below. Great looking shoes but scuff up very easily. Only wore to 2 practices and they look as if I wore them all season. Obviously I'm on here looking at the them again so if they added a lace cover would probably buy another pair.
ADD A LACE COVER!!!
otherwise an awesome shoe and im getting another pair anyway. I dont know about other states but you cant wrestle without your laces secured in mine. To do this I had to tape them up every time. Not a big deal but lace covers would be awesome
These are very comfortable and stylish shoes. They have a great grip on the bottom and a good sliding surface on the top. Unfortunately, they rip very easily or at least they did for me so I recommend that you only wear them for matches.
These shoes are awesome I let a friend borrow them and they got stolen/lost??? But I only want the all white version wish they would bring it back. "If its not broken don't fix it"
I have an all white version (the Asics symbol was black) of these I got three years ago. I love the fit, grip, durability and overall performance. Mine are, unfortunately too small now and it would be great to get a new pair of these classics. If only the price was lower
dude, my wrestling coach has the origional
"asics Tiger" shoes these were based off
Does anybody know when metallic gold and black shoes will arrive in the fall?
Answer: We're expecting to be able to ship the new Gable wrestling shoes in mid-October. Make sure to place your pre-order with us before the fall since we always sell out of popular sizes and colors quickly!
Bought the all black pair. they're still in the box. bought the red, black and white pair as well. Great once the leather gets broken in, but already wore a hole in one of the toes.
Great shoes, Soft leather, And they get softer the more you sweat in them. No problems with any of the pairs I ordered. I love them, great colors. glad to see some old school come back
The leather on the shoes are really soft, they fit to your feet very well. They do scuff up easy but other than that, they're great!
I had a YELLOW pair of these same shows, release several years ago. These are GREAT looking shoes, but they do not hold up. They look great, but do not perform great. The leather will chip like paint, and the sole will peel and fall apart. BEWARE.
Note from Worldwide Sport Supply: We're very sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with your Gable shoes.

It's our policy to replace any products that are deffective and we would be happy to bring up the issue with ASICS, if the situation warrants.
A great retro classic..I wish they would of made all ten color combos
i got the shoes, they held up pretty good for a few days. once the season started the soul was tearing and the leather started to dis color. i have red and white shoes instead of red. they are comfy though. i would not recomend these because they arent as durable as other shoes i have had.
The shoe at first was very comfortable. I got them because i thought the leather would not rip and tear like paper like those other crappy shoes. On the first day of practice about an hour through, BOTH of the trims around the heel were torn. not just coming off a bit, i mean two inches of trim completley torn off. If it was just one shoe ide say i got a lemon, but both? Does not seem like 90 dollar wrestling shoe quality to me.

My shoes just came in a few days ago, and i already love it! fit you nice an snug.. just a great shoe. good looking shoe as well.. only complain is the ugly colors. to be simple, i just got blck/blck. added some white shoe laces... looks nice:)
At first very tough and stiff. But once you get some sweat in that leather and stretch it out a bit, it becomes the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. This is a great shoe.
Very comfortable, fits like a glove. Great looking and great for gym workouts. I like the solid sole.
