IT'S REAL, IT'S DAMN REAL
WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle celebrates the 25th anniversary of winning a gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics with— how could we forget?— “a broken freakin' neck".
During the 1996 Olympic Trials, Angle fractured 2 of his cervical vertebrae, which ultimately resulted in 2 herniated discs and 4 pulled muscles. Despite the serious injury, Angle won the trials before going on to win the gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the Summer Olympics.
To commemorate this feat, we've partnered with Kurt Angle to design and develop his signature sneaker: The Angle.

It's true! Let these woven tongue tags serve as proof that these sneakers were designed and approved by Kurt Angle himself.
The sublimated insoles feature one of Kurt Angle's infamous catchphrases while wrestling for TNA.
What began as an insult ended up becoming iconic with Kurt Angle's theme music. The molded rubber heel sits atop a Vibram Sphike sole.
