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.

Otomix has been making MMA shoes since 1989. Designed by Martial Arts for Martial Artists. Otomix was the Official sponsor of UFC 1. The best shoe for MMA is the Otomix Stingray Escape great for kicking and perfect on the floor or mat!
