Same here! Great sale prices on Romaleos and Adipowers - the red Adidas are $99 before coupon!

Now my 5.5 year old VS Athletics can finally retire. :p

Great! These are rarely discounted. I purchased these a few months ago for ~185 after tax...

i live in cali and these come out to about 138 after tax.

I recommend buying 1/2 size bigger than you normally wear otherwise they might be too snug.

Thank again op. repped.

In for a pair.

I've been stuck at about 225 on my squats. I was wearing tennis shoes. Hopefully these will help me leap my plateau.

I've been told that the soles of the shoes should be as flat as possible, especially for squats and deadlifts. These shoes are elevated at the heels. Is there a reason why?

You probably don't want to wear these for deadlifts (flat is usually better there).

Depending on your biomechanics and hip flexibility, additional heel height can help you with deep squats especially with a narrow stance and high bar.

Olympic weightlifting shoes also provide some support for heavy cleans, snatches, presses, and other exotic movements. They are also built to be extremely durable and sturdy to the point that they are uncomfortable and unsuitable for use outside of the gym.

Minimal/no heel height works well for low-bar/wide-stance squats if those are comfortable for you.

DELETED. I was wrong, these are for squats.

had the adidas but I got the Reebok power lift 2.0 which is the flatter one...takes a while to get used to it but I have been doing really good after some mobility work I squat 3 plates narrow/low bar squat raw and pull almost 4 plates no belt.

only thing I can say is that addressing motor inefficiency with mechanical corrections isn't the best idea as personally I have been down that path to get the deeper squat. although mobility work takes a while before the workout, it feels great!

coming from injuries using the mechanical advantages provided by the increased heel height and belt I'd have to say that the progress isn't that great but it's well worth the time investment as most of my pain in the joints is gone

I actually recommend sizing 1/2 down. You want these snug. It's not good if the heel of your foot is slipping out the shoe.

That being said, I own a pair and these are the BEST weight lifting shoe available.
