I bought these on sale for around $55 but would have payed up to $100. I personally don't see the point in buying a $200 or $300 olympic shoe when they are only marginally more stable than the powerlift. I would suggest this shoe to both beginner and experienced lifters.
Big note: They do run tight. I generally wear a 11.5 in cross-trainers. I could have easily gone up to a 12. Given that the range of motion is limited (I mean, if you are walking more than four feet in these you are doing it wrong) I'll live with them.
If you are going to lift heavy (deadlift, squats) these shoes will defiantly help. Just don't try running in them.
I had been looking at lifting shoes for quite some time but just did not want to spend $200 on a pair of shoes just for the gym. I found these and read the reviews and caught them on sale. I tried them out and I can only say that I wish I had gotten them sooner. They are very comfortable and stylish and once you lace them up and tighten the Velcro strap your feet are very secure in them. They are flexible yet do not give out on the sides like regular sneakers do. The best part is the flat hard sole really gives you great stability. It is slightly inclined so it helps you squat lower when your ankles tend to lift off the ground in regular shoes.
I can feel the exercise more in my legs now because I am not working against the shoe and can concentrate on contracting the muscles. A few other reviewers said this and I have to agree, these shoes make you feel anchored to the floor. I use them for squats, deadlifts, overhead press and bent over barbell rows. I was pleasantly surprised how much more comfortable I felt doing the rows in these shoes. They are comfortable enough that you could wear them through your entire workout but I take them off when I am done with the exercises I mentioned because less wear and tear and I hope to have them for a long time.
The fit was exactly what I expected. I take a 10M in all other shoes and these were no different. My feet are slightly wider and I have had trouble with Adidas sneakers in the past being too narrow but these fit perfectly both length and width.
There is only one issue that I ran into and it was completely my fault. I wanted my wife to try them on just so feel how well they anchored your feet to the floor and she jammed her foot in them and stepped on the back of the shoe without untying the laces properly to pull the shoe over her heel and it squashed the back down behind the ankle which took quite a bit of effort to pull it back up into place. I was worried she had damaged the padding in the back but they are fine. I make sure to untie the laces and loosen the shoe up before I put them on and do not see having any issues going forward.
If you are just doing light weights, you might not benefit as much as if you are going heavier. If you are squatting above 100kg, then I would say a powerlift shoe is a must.
