Small sized shoes will bite and be uncomfortable to the point that they might cut the blood supply to the feet and thus drain out the wrestler.

Most of the time. it seemed their size would not be available.

It is easy to deal with a physical body but it is difficult to judge the mind of a person. Brands matter in the sense that they can provide the security required to make a proper decision regarding he shoes and the person can get easy access to feedbacks from other users that would make the decision smoother. We can collect data in two type – Primary data and Secondary data. When we take different opinions and views about a topic.Secondary data is costly and may be outdated or manipulated. We think qustionnaire is the best options to collect the informations from respondents because if there is any doubt created in mind of the respondent. Overpriced shoes will put a dent in the budget. however. it can be cleared at the same time. actually it is a qualitative study where we take different opinions. the views differ from one person to the other. Again we tried to find out the quality and service provided by the sports shoes brand in 7 .
