To Boot or Not to Boot

Since I'm exploring the thread of wrestling women's outfits, it should come as no surprise that I would consider the wrestling boot (without, it is to be hoped, falling into the "foot fetish" chasm from which no escape appears possible). Of course, a wrestler can go barefoot, but that just gives her opponent another avenue of attack. While the lady in black didn't make that mistake, she did chose to wear some form of wrestling slipper that her opponent was able to remove, with the obvious intention of working over her toes. (You can see the pink slippers off to the left, just below the curtain). To follow up on my prior post on the beauty of the one piece suit (and the thoughtful comment), I note that the lady in black fills out her conservative suit about as alluringly as possible.
I discovered the German Mat Club early in my fascination with women's wrestling, and perhaps that's why I'm particularly partial to ladies wrestling nude or topless while wearing calf-high wrestling boots. The shoes not only protect the ladies' feet and toes, but their attire lends a seriousness of purpose to their efforts. As an aside, you might want to check out a great blog that explores a variety of issues related to our interest, particularly how folks first got interested in this form of competition -- http://femwrestlingfan.blogspot.com/.
By the way, I can only seem to find grainy video transfers of German Mat Club (GMC) matches. If anyone knows where there are better quality photos, please let me know.
Here, we see a lithe Japanese lady using her wrestling boot to assist in her offense. But since I'm focusing just on the style of footwear, I note that it's not really to my taste as it doesn't look like the tradition wrestling boot that I'm used to. It just looks too clunky and almost like she's about to go skiing or something.
But my real complaint is with UltimateSurrender's choice of footwear. While I have to give them kudos for explaining that they changed from barefoot to sneakers because the ladies were suffering too many foot and toe injuries -- and for recognizing that nothing is as important as the wrestlers' health and well being -- the selection of an aerobics sneaker just doesn't doesn't do it for me. Since the ladies need to wear different colored bands (and, in a huge mistake, straps of fabric around their upper arms, but I may deal with that in another post), why not have them wear different colored wrestling boots?

First of all, thanks for the link to the other blog. As soon as I have some time to be contemplative, I'll go backand make a post there too.
I am a major fan of boots. They give the impression of being a professional, even if it's two girls scrabbling around on the mat, half (or better yet fully) naked. If you spent the time and money to get some decent leather or vinyl, calf high or knee high boots, then this must be a little more than a passing fancy.
Of course this has more applicability to the pro matches, but I love a good boot stomp down too. Boots to the head and lower back, stomps to the back. And then the special boot moves, like raking your opponent's eyes with the laces and eyelets, or ripping the sole of your boot across the face of your unfortunate opponent. very NICE!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=http://twitter.com/iuyjopg]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://ojagamu.freehostia.com]Viagra and Analogs[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
