In that snapshot of Myron Roderick and Fred Davis I can’t help but wonder if the high top shoes that Roderick is wearing were Keds or PF Flyers because I don’t know if wrestling shoes were invented by then in the mid-1950’s. My guess would be that writer Mark Palmer might be able to answer this question since he once wrote an article on the history of college wrestling uniforms.
