Not to encourage frivolous Slickdeals purchasing - but my girlfriend literally couldn't squat without these. It was hard to watch. The raised heel helps compensate for her lack of ankle mobility.

tldr: technical mastery of strength training isn't the only factor in injury occurrence despite perfect form, is the message that's being left out. Obviously strength training equipment are just tools and not the solution.

It's obvious to strength athletes that injuries can occur independent of training technique, e.g. inadequate recovery, nutritional deficiencies, or over-training. What readers are likely to interpret from your post is that injuries will occur spontaneously despite technical mastery. But the greater truth and what's not communicated is that injuries are also significantly influenced externally from the training environment as I've mentioned. You're giving an incomplete message about the limitations of lifting equipment and technical mastery related to long term injury prevention and occurrence and what to be wary of. Your message gives off an intimidating picture of weightlifting rather than explanations of why things happen (injuries despite good form).

You may see the benefits of these shoes at any level of squating. 1 for those who have poor ankle mobility it makes it easier to hit depth and 2. having a sole that doesn't deform like traditional athletic shoes do really helps with stability. That being said training hard and using proper form will do more for you than any shoes can.

I also really like these shoes for benching, raised heel made it easier for me to transition into a flat footed IPF style bench and the stability helps for leg drive

It's worth the investment no matter what level you're currently at. Or you can just put some 2.5 lb plates underneath your heels when you squat to simulate the same effect the raised heel on these shoes have.

$98 is a steal on these.

These things aren't comfortable to walk around in so you would probably be looking at buying these strictly for Olympic lifts.

6pm.com had last year's colors for $80 but only in select sizes (typically don't have 9-11). Otherwise, this is the cheapest they get.

I wish I had bought mine years ago before I ruptured a disc in my back.

Chucks are good for deadlifts and okay for squatting. These are A+ for squats and olympics lifts

Been looking to get these. I use to just squat and deadlift with socks on (no shoes). Would these make a difference going from shoeless?

Is this better than Reebok's weightlifting shoes?
