Detroit based student designer, Brendan Sall created these, Nike ‘Shootsweep’s’ with a Flywire support system due to a recent rule change in wrestling. Apparantly there’s now a rule which prohibits the use of medical tape being used for support. Seems a little odd to ban that, but i’m sure they have their reasons. Either way, utilizing Flywire could be a brilliant way to get that extra support needed without having to tape the shit out of your ankles (or tear all your leg hairs out when you rip it off after).
“I was challenged to design a new shoe for a sport that I love. I wrestled for 9 years of my life and this is my first wrestling shoe that I have designed.” – Brendan
From initial ideation, through to taped-up samples and clean renderings, we get a quick look at some of the thought process that went into the design of Brendan’s ‘Shootsweep’ concept, below.
