Wrestle Boutique LLC is the world's fastest growing designer, marketer, and distributor of authentic wrestling footwear, athletic footwear, apparel, equipment, and accessories for the sport of wrestling.
Wrestle Boutique is widely known throughout the wrestling community for being at the cornerstone of pop-culture/streetwear and wrestling gear. Furthermore, Wrestle Boutique has been featured on a variety of different wrestling news outlets (e.g. Flowrestling) for it’s overall exclusivity. Wrestle Boutique products often sell out within minutes. "Econ 101, when supply is low and demand is high, price rises”. Don't worry, Wrestle Boutique does not raise its price. Wrestle Boutique has built a strong resale market around its name. Once the products sell out, they are often seen on the underground markets for 2-3 times the original price. No other wrestling companies follow this model. It is important to note that with its extremely low quantities, quality is the number one goal. Wrestle Boutique provides the best for the best.
Since opening up in 2016, Wrestle Boutique has shattered through the wrestling gear barrier. A variety of different products have been released, such as: wrestling shoes, street shoes, sandals, singlets, legsleeves, headbands, kneepads, wristbands, socks, backpacks, and other various pieces of wrestling apparel. Most notably, Wrestle Boutique has established itself within the wrestling community as the first ever to provide a wrestling shoe with a dynamic fit-collar integration. The dynamic fit-collar provides a revolutionary fit, while maximizing overall ankle support and flexibility. Furthermore Wrestle Boutique has collaborated with a variety of companies, such as PinCancer and Funky Flickr Boyz, resulting in thousands of dollars being donated to cancer research. Lastly, Wrestle Boutique has been growing rapidly via social media, accumulating a following of over 22,000 wrestlers across the world!
Operating segments for the Wrestle Boutique brand are located in North America. The company was founded by Connor Boike in October of 2016 and is headquartered in Flushing, Michigan.
Meet the Founder/Chief Executive Officer: Connor Boike
It was a brisk, colorful fall when Connor first sparked the idea of Wrestle Boutique. At the time, Connor had just started his first semester of college at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor.
Connor had begun the sport of wrestling at the age of five years old. Little did he know, wrestling was going to take over his life. He ate, slept, and lived wrestling all the way up to his senior year of high school. If you had met Connor growing up, it would be no surprise to you that he is know running one of most sought after wrestling brand in the United States. Growing up, he always had an entrepreneurial spirit. Most notably, Connor became heavily involved within the wrestling shoe community in seventh grade. He continued to buy, sell, and trade wrestling shoes all the way up to his senior year of high school within the Funky Flickr Boyz community.
During his time as a collector, he accumulated over 500 different pairs of wrestling shoes and countless singlets/other wrestling pieces. In his sophomore year of high school, he was diagnosed with a rare form of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. However, through countless hours of extra practice and workouts, Connor was able to secure all-state status. He was the first member from his high school to achieve this in over twenty years. Unfortunately, by the end of his senior year, it was decided that it would be best for him to retire from competing. He sold off all his wrestling shoes and other gear. Several months later, this money was used to set the foundation of Wrestle Boutique.
Not only was Connor a vintage wrestling shoe guru, but he was also an avid sneakerhead throughout high school. A sneakerhead is one who buys, sells, and trades street shoes (Jordan's, Yeezy's, etc.). Through sneakers, Connor developed a strong appreciation for pop-culture and the resale markets. "Wouldn't it be cool if the sport of wrestling had gear which resembled our pop culture?", he thought. "Would it be possible to create a wrestling gear brand which had resale value beyond the initial retail value?", he often wondered. The idea was quite simple to Connor. He seamlessly combined his two passions. His love for wrestling and gear merged with pop-culture and resale attributes to create Wrestle Boutique.
Several years later, Connor is still running Wrestle Boutique. He handles all day-to-day operations. Furthermore, he is responsible for the design of all Wrestle Boutique products. He often says "Wrestle Boutique is not my job, it is my hobby. Nothing makes me happier than being able to watch others enjoy my creations".
