Yes, less grip, so feet get stuck less. Also depends on what wats you are on. On wrestling mats, I really like them. Good traction, I can feel the floor with my feet better (kind of like being bare foot). On tatami, I find sambo shoes more slick...especially old tatami.
Oh, and Mr Miyagi, I ordered a pair from Steve like two years ago, and they're still going strong. I'm on the gold coast (I recall you're with Matt Cooper's gym up in Brissy, yeah?), so I know the postage is very reasonable. It was cheaper to order them from Steve including postage, than it would have been to drive down to Rebel Sports and buy a pair of wrestling shoes over the counter.
Having said that wrestling shoes are ridiculously priced here.
These shoes are better than the ones we used to stock too!
Make sure you post a while before the next batch, as I'm quite likely to order a few pairs for my club mates.
Oh awesome, thanks for the info, matey.

I've noticed how expensive they are here, it's pretty intense! And these seems like an awesome option.
