About Nike Footsweep Wrestling Shoes

Nike Footsweeps were designed to compete with the Adidas Combat Speeds in the mid 1990s.  They feature a split sole that was only used on a handful of Nike shoes ever released.

These shoes are designed with a lightweight mesh and synthetic upper.  They also feature a non-slip sockliner for enhanced stability.

Colorways of Nike Footsweeps

Nike Footsweeps were released in 2 colorways.  They were:

  • Red, White and Blue
  • Black, White and Blue

If you have a pair that are all black, you likely don't have footsweeps.  Nike released Speedsweeps and Speedsweep Supremes at the same time as footsweep. They feature very similar designs but only came in black and white.

The black version of the Footsweeps has a dark blue sole, differentiating it from other releases by Nike in 1996.

How Much Do Footsweeps Cost

Footsweeps typically cost between $300 and $1200 in good condition.  The red, white and blue, or RWB colorway, typically sells for more than the black and blue.  

In good shape, you can expect to get up to $750 or so for the black, blue and white colorway. For the red, white and blue, you can expect to get up to $1000.  Brand new in the box, I've seen the red, white, and blue colorway go for over $1000.

Fun Fact About These Shoes

In recent years, replicas have been made of the red, white, and blue Footsweeps.  These shoes feature the same sole as replica Nike Inflicts, which I talk about in my blog here.  If you see a pair of Footsweeps in good condition for less than $300 and they have a tan sole, I recommend proceeding with caution because these are likely replicas, which do not hold anywhere near the value of the real thing.  They are also a lot lower in quality and tend to blow out after just a few wears.
