I bought these upon the recommendation of various veteran power lifters. Specifically I wanted to start training the wide stance AKA sumo dead lift. When I conventional dead lift I do so with out foot ware but when I tried dead lifting with a wide stance my feet would slide over my socks, this is no good. I've also started to back squat with them and it feels very different than squatting with a raised heel. I've recently seen the same product for sale elsewhere for £50 so I consider the price on Amazon UK a good one. They are built of a high quality and are free from any fault. I have noticed though that they make a noise when I walk, sounds a little like a tennis ball being struck. . . . maybe that's because of the rubber toe cap? It's of no concern to me though because I need not be stealthy :-) I like these and considering that I will only wear them for my squat and dead lift I think they will last a very long time. Recommended value for money product.
Love these shoes and they are comfortable, I feel they may be slightly small I take a 3-4 depending on the style of the shoe and I ordered a 3.5 but I think slightly tighter fitting is better as they feel more secure. Delivery was very quick.
they are shoes - that was primarily the niche i needed them to fill. they do this. they go on feet - like most good shoes they go on you feet and cover them to shield you from cold, sun, and abrasions.
