1. Fit/sizing is key on olympic weightlifting shoes. You want them tight and snug but not too restrictive or that your toes are uncomfortably jammed against the front of the toebox. I am a size 9.5 on the Brannock device and wear size 9.5 in most sneakers. The width of my feet is normal or slightly wider than normal. Size 9 would have resulted in a more snug toebox but my toenail scraping against the front of the shoes.
2. The Adipowers come out of the box pretty narrow. This is great because the plastic-coated uppers stretch very easily upon the first couple hours of wearing the shoes and stay tight enough for proper support beyond the midfoot and toebox. The Romaleos were not as narrow out of the box, but the outermost joint on my left foot felt sore because of its restrictive toebox. The Romaleos uppers do not stretch as easily as the Adipowers.
3. I like that the Adipowers are lighter than the Romaleos.
4. The deal breaker for me with the Romaleos was the pain in my foot due to its more restrictive toe box and less forgiving uppers. People say that the Romaleos are better for people with wider feet but this does not take into consideration that the Adipowers toebox widens during a brief break-in period to accommodate wider feet.
5. I like that the Adipowers are easier to lace up when compared to the Romaleos which have more criss-crosses and one additional strap to deal with. The Romaleos midfoot strap is too long as well.
The Adipowers are known for being narrow and when I first put them on I was concerned that they were a bit too snug. However, I didn't feel like spending the extra $40 on the Romaleos, so I decided to keep them and hope for the best. I'm glad I did, because they broke in very quickly (i.e. single lifting session) and are now quite comfortable.
They seem like they'd last me a long time, especially given that you'd only wear them for the lifts.

Note that this is not designed for full-range/atg squats. If you regularly do these, get this kind of sole but one that is flat.Read more
