I too wore those shoes and always thought they were the s**t back then and guess what? They were and as a matter of fact the other day I was thinking about my father who passed away a few years ago and remembered when we were looking for those damn shoes at every store in O.K. because I wanted the royal blue ones. I remember we found them and as a matter of fact I just bought some on the internet. I couldnt find the royal blue ones in my size but I did find some in white I think I can fix the color.I'm gonna include my email and size and if anyone can locate a pair of NEW or DAMN CLOSE TO NEW I will pay generously for them. You can contact me at SIZE 13 or 14 ROYAL BLUE COACHES TURF SHOE

Man those shoes were cool. I begged for a pair. Finally talked grandpa into buying me some white ones cause the blue were sold out. I remember my friends had red,blue, I even saw green. I think I'm gonna get some blue ones and show my kids what cool is all about!

Yes..they were very popular. I've managed to buy my son, who's 15, two pair. One red & white, and one solid white pair. He has started a new "trend" at his highschool. Everyone is asking him where to find them..and I just laugh. The site no longer sells the coach style, I bought his red/white ones on that website just a few weeks before they stopped selling them (July 08). I found his white ones on Ebay (Aug. 08). So, I am also looking for a pair--or two--of the blue/white ones, size 11. Please email me as well if anyone knows where they can be found. Just put "spotbilt shoes" in the subject line of message:

Bought my first pair in 1981 when I headed to college. I have had a pair ever since. Most comfortable shoes I have ever owned and one hell of a deal.

I am looking for these shoes for a friend. He's worn them since the 1970's and can't find them anywhere. They don't make them anymore, I know, but they may be overstocked somewhere. PLEASE HELP STEVE!!!!!!!! I'll check back here for any information. Thank you.

Wore those shoes back in Junior High.... Only reason I found this site today, I was looking for a pair, only because yesterday one of my High School Wrestlers comes walking in the room wearing a pair of the white ones. I asked him where he got them at and he said out of his dad's "OLD" closet. Man those are some sweet shoes!!!!

I currently have 2 pair of the Mens size 9 Spot-Bilt "Strategist" Football Coaching Shoes. They were from the early-mid 90s and have been kept in their original boxes. Never worn, but possibly tried on in our retail store. One of them is listed on ebay and the other is in our inventory. You can contact me by email at or check the ebay item before it sells by searching ebay with item #320076091625

I know what you mean, THANKS FOR THE HEADS-UP. I bought a pair last month (Christmas present to myself-wife doesn't know---ssshhh). These ARE the real deal. Man, they were expensive ($280.00 + shipping & handling - like $319.00 tl). He (or she-seller is loribouza), has like every size and color. I'm saving up for a black pair as we speak. I hope this will get some of your juces flowing-and your money-right out of your bank account!!! Like LUV-UM says-I don't care I got me some baby !!! Oh yeah, don't bother with those "nasty knock-off's" I also bought a pair of nasty knock-off's for $71.00-they are NASTY!!! Sent them back the same day; partial refund only + shipping-I was ticked-off. I LLLLLLLLLLLLUUUUVVVVVV-UUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMM.

I am looking for the white spot bilt that have the tongue that folds over. I wore them in mid to late 80s. I need a size 8 womens. I don't know what size that would be in mens. I have searched the internet and can not find any. If anyone knows where I can get a pair, please email me at Thanks!

I got my first pair in 1987 when I was in college and actually still have them although they are pretty beat up. They saw a lot of concrete.Then I got another pair in 2007 which after they quit making them I don't wear as much to keep them in decent condition.They are very well made and comfortable. The only drawback that I could see with them was that the heels would wear to the outside fairly quickly. I don't know if anyone else noticed this or if it just me.You can check out a couple of videos on youtube of coaching shoes. One shows an old pair vs. a new pair and the differences between the two.

You have to continuously look on EBAY. Every few weeks or so over the past few years I've scanned EBAY and have bought many pairs of white and black in sizes 7.5, 8, 8.5 and 9. I also got a black Champion pair that is very similar. I've paid between $25 and $50 including shipping, never more. I was the only bidder on my last pair, won August 20, 2014:
