Material

One of the nicest things about this option is the simplistic and durable material that they are made of. The majority of these are made from neoprene. Neoprene is exceptionally stretchy and will conform to your feet nicely. It is also fairly durable. This material is also good at making sure that moisture stays away from your feet.

Fit

It has been mentioned several times from customers that the sizing of this product runs a bit small. This can lead to a very tight fit. You'll want to be careful when figuring out which size it is that you need to order. Once you find the correct size, however, you will have an excellent fitting pair of foot grips to help you maintain stability through a variety of activities and practices. The fit will not slide around as you move around during training. It is important to note that even when your feet are sweaty or not going to have to worry about these sliding around. Customers have said several times that they are very impressed with the stay-put fit that these offer. One other thing that is important to mention is that many customers find these to be a bit tight around the ankle. This can be a bit uncomfortable but it does help to ensure that you have a secure fit.

Durability

One of the areas that this item is truly lacking is in durability. There have been a ton of comments from consumers using this product that says they are not very durable. The exceptionally thin and lightweight material has a tendency of deteriorating if you are wearing the same pair of these grips frequently. The stitching along the bottom starts to fray rather quickly when you are working lateral movements. It is a disappointment to customers that they don't get a great term of use when investing in this product. Many of the other aspects are fantastic this one just happens not to be. So, if you're planning on wearing these frequently you may want to order several pairs to ensure that you get better use out of each one. Overall, this brand has a bit of work to do with
the durability of this product.

Support

Due to the fact that this is not an actual shoe, you are not going to be looking at large levels of support.

If this is a problem you may want to invest in some wrestling or boxing shoes to ensure that you have the arch support you need to keep your feet feeling great. The neoprene material does offer some support to the ankle. This is not going to be a high level of support but a very light level.

Overall, this is not that I option you will choose if you're looking for something that is truly supportive.

Value

Consumers feel as if this product is a very good value. The price tag that they carry is quite affordable but you do need to take into consideration that you will only be getting one pair for the cost. With the lack of durability, this actually makes them a little bit pricier then what they originally met scene. If you are wanting to wear them every day you will likely want to purchase more than one pair which in turn increases the investment you will need to make. Taking the other aspects of this product into consideration we can see why people feel as if it is a very good value. What you will be gaining in grip, speed, and agility outweighs the durability issues that people are finding with this product.
