The Tawa is a completely original design
Composed of modern materials creating a completely unique experience, the Tawa offers an extremely breathable & lightweight boot.
The upper provides a seamless sock-like fit which Nike attributes to a zonal stretch & lockout system which provides support in every range of motion, Nike also implemented flyknit, exoskeleton-like support & strategically placed ventilation zones, all of which allow the Tawa to be extremely comfortable, flexible, supportive & breathable.
The Tawa is also the first wrestling shoe to ever be implemented with Nike flyknit which has been a staple in Nike’s cleat & running shoe lines.
The high tenacity yarns & engineered structures create possibly the most mobile & cool, both literally & figuratively, wrestling shoe ever, the seamless fitting upper blends into a well-constructed exoskeleton midsole & thick rubber traction pads.
The bottom of the Tawa is a wrapping split-sole design that features two rubber pads that wrap up high on the sides, heel & toes, allowing for maximum traction in extreme angles.
Whether you are driving up from the bottom position, blasting your opponent off your feet, or upside down in some funky shot defense, you’ll have traction in every scenario. Nike added the perfect finishing touch to their new wrestling poster child with a simple lace garage system that effectively holds your laces while not creating any bulky lumps or uncomfortable pressure on the tongue, the garage keeps the laces out of the way & guarantees you won’t be tripping over your laces.
Having produced wrestling shoes for almost 50 years, Nike has had its roots entrenched in wrestling & once again is making history with one of their most anticipated wrestling shoes to date.
The Nike Tawa phenomenon is a wrestling experience that you don’t want to miss out on.
