After 15+ years my old broken asics that were worn down on the ball of the foot that I could throw a head kick straight through with no drag are dying. Any suggestions?

Ha! I have a pair of Asics about 12 years old. Good shoes. Why don't you want another pair of Asics?

I haven't ruled out any brand, I'm just looking for opinions.

 A friend of mine uses Sambo shoes and they are really awesome. If I had to go with shoes for BJJ or MMA I'd go Sambo.

ASICS split soles. ASICS are good if u have wide feet as well. Adidas run pretty narrow. Phone Post

I like the Otomix stingrays alot. They are softer and more pliable than wrestling shoes but still have a rubber sole.
