How to Customize Wrestling Shoes


From the ring of a professional wrestling match to the mat of an amateur freestyle match, the shoes can help distinguish a wrestler from his opponent, as well as leave a lasting memory with the audience. Of course, professional wrestlers have more options than high school wrestlers due to league rules. But a few simple style adjustments can make a big difference for all wrestlers.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Pen or pencil
  • Paint
  • Needle and thread
  • Colored shoe laces
  • Logo patches
  • Rhinestones or other embellishments

Customizing Team Wrestling Shoes

  • Choose shoes that match your team colors.

  • String bold colored shoe string through your shoes.

  • Paint your shoes with the team name, your number or the mascot name.

  • Stitch a small patch with your team logo onto the side or back of your shoe.

Customizing Pro Wrestling Boots

  • Consider what your wrestler persona is and use that to create your shoes. If you are supposed to be a fireman, make your shoes look like firefighter boots. If you are a flashy wrestler, you could add rhinestones. Match your shoes to your persona.

  • Add your name to your shoes in paint or by sewing. If you have a personal logo, add that too.

  • Draw or sketch a design and have it professionally applied to your boots. There are different companies who can take a design you come up with and put it on your shoes.

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't forget to decorate the bottoms of the shoes. The audience will see them when you are down on the mat.
  • Make sure any customization you want to do to you wrestling shoes is allowed by league rules.
