This is just a nice general shoe, it's gonna give you a lot of wear and tear.
Is it the worst shoe I've ever put on my foot? Absoloutely not. Not even close. Is it the best? No, it's definitely far from the best.
The Fury falls into the affordable price range of wrestling footwear from Nike. It is not meant for high-performance athletes and competitions but ticks all the boxes of a basic wrestling shoe. It offers mid-cut ankle support, a breathable mesh upper, a lace pocket, and a solid unisole rubber.
Those looking for a high-end Nike trainer should check out the Hypersweep. It is a tournament-ready, split-sole piece which commonly used by professional wrestlers.
The Nike Fury employs a full-length rubber outsole, also referred to as unisole. While it doesn’t offer as much flexibility as the split-sole construction, it brings about other benefits.
- Its thicker nature provides extra padding while also making the underside more hard-wearing.
- Because it covers the entire underfoot, the unisole delivers grip from heel-to-toe. Thus, it sacrifices pliability in favor of better stability.
Aeration. The trainer uses mesh as an underlying layer for its upper. The entire length of the tongue is also covered in mesh. The fabric has an open-cell design to keep the foot fresh and ventilated during intense wrestling sessions.
Durability and support. Sturdy suede overlays are strategically added around the forefoot and the rearfoot. Not only do they guard mesh against wear-and-tear, but they also contribute to a supportive fit. The overlays integrate into the lacing system through several pairs of eyelets, which helps in regulating the fit more effectively.
Lace pocket. To make sure laces don’t get in the way during the sparring, a lace pocket is attached at the top of the tongue. Made in compliance with competition regulations, it helps to keep the ends of the laces tucked through a Velcro mechanism.
Sole. Nike fans may have noticed a striking similarity between the two shoes. That’s because they do have the same outsole construction. The Fury inherited its unisole from the SpeedSweep VII.
Upper. While both shoes feature a breathable mesh upper with synthetic overlays, the Fury sports a cleaner and more monochromatic color scheme. The SpeedSweep also employs a rather large Velcro strap at the top of the collar.
