This is simply the best weight-lifting shoe money can buy right now in my opinion. Yes they are pricey but if you are a serious weight-lifter then it's worth the money.
I use it for all exercises apart from deadlifts. It is actually very comfortable to wear and ANY exercise which involves leg drive or standing on a firm foundation will be improved by wearing this shoe. Don't just think of it as a squat shoe, or olympic weight-lifting shoe. The first day bench pressing with these shoes I put 5kg on my max simply down to the superior leg drive I could generate by placing my feet further back but still being able to drive through my heels. For squats and olympic lifts, it feels like my feet are rooted to the ground, there is no wobble whatsoever.
-Rock solid construction
-Lightweight and usable for most exercises
-velcro strap positioned perfectly to lock feet in place
-Proper heel with no compression at all.
-They look really awesome
-Toe box is slightly narrow. You may read people suggesting that you should buy these in a smaller size than normal but I would ignore that because the toe box will be uncomfortably tight. Buy them in your normal size.
