I will say that the only con I have with the shoe is the Velcro strap getting in the way of the shoe laces. Sometimes the laces will get stuck and you'll have to yank em out in order to tie them and over time this may ruin the laces which might not be an issue for some but for me aesthetically it would be a pain seeing the fabric of the laces fall apart
These shoes are for the real lifters. If you just go to the gym to say you go then wear your flimsy running shoes. They have they’re place but for me not in the gym. How can you be serious about squatting, deadlifting, pressing, with that flimsy soled shoe. The only other option is chuck Taylor’s but for me the quality went away. I’d tear them up in a month. My power lifts though I’ve had for 2 years. Wear them 5 days a week in the gym. They improve every lift you can do an why? Because they don’t give . Soles are hard and stable. You feel planted to the floor. You will lift harder, stronger, and feel more confident in the major lifts for strength.
Fitting: I wear anything between a 9 - 9 1/2. I ordered a 9 and it fits perfectly. It’s not loose. I can feel my big toe reach the edge of the shoe just a bit but it’s barely noticeable and it isn’t annoying. I’d rather have it like that so my feet do not slide around (make sure to wear thin socks). The sides fit tight, so it’s wise to select the correct fitting if you have wide feet.
Comfort: they are squatting shoes, so let’s be honest, they are not meant for long walks. During a squat, it feels ten times better than wearing a pair of tennis shoes and you can sense the arch support. Overall, comfortability is great.
Benefits: I hurt my back pretty bad last Fall when doing squats. When I finally recovered, I took it pretty easy and now I’m lifting heavier again. I noticed my knees were compensating because I’ve been afraid to hurt my back again. Well, the first time I wore the shoes, I immediately felt a huge difference in my form. I felt all the muscles in my legs were actually pushing the weight up and my knees weren’t working overtime. I try to keep a straight back, but I noticed how the shoes make it easier to maintain that form (I also wear a belt so I’m sure that helps too).
The strap fits nicely over the laces and there is no discomfort. The strap does get in the way when tying your laces, but leaving it stuck to the Velcro helps keep them out of the way.
Overall, I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get these shoes. The price is good, and I like the quality. I already feel the benefits when squatting, and if you’re debating on whether this will really help you, there is no doubt that these shoes will allow you to progress.

I was worried that for cleans and snatches, they would be clunky and lack flexibility - nope.
I thought, why bother wear special shoes for squatting or deadlifting, it isn't like you are jumping around or have lateral motion. Boy, was I wrong. These just literally 'lock you in' so that your lifts are more stable, leg position better and your feet better supported. The soles have some give, so even for box jumps, powerlifting etc., these hang in like champs.
If I was going to do a ton of box jumps and no other lifting, then I would wear my minimalistic sole or cross trainer shoes. But I've been impressed with these shoes.
The sole is waffley and very flat. That means a lot of contact area with the ground and no 'hot spots'. It also means that since they don't have a heel on the sole, they can slide off something that is smooth or slippery. You'd need to try them to see. Fine for the gym, but wouldn't cross slippery boulders in a creek with them.
An intangible for lifting shoes if you've been on the fence like me. You put them on, strap them snug and you just feel like you want to lift. I don't struggle with motivation, but there is something to be said for the feel of these vs low heel lift or chuck taylors. You know you are going to do some lifting.
Another 'worry' I had with them was the heel wedge. I've been working out in my low heel shoes and thought it would be weird to lift from a wedge. So far, I haven't noticed that at all.
I've worn these for a while now and they are as good (and ugly) as new.
I have taken a size bigger than my other shoes and it fits perfectly.
