I recently ordered adidas ironworks III shoes in my Cole Haan dress shoe size (lace ups). They arrived today, but I'm not sure if they're too long (never had a pair of weightlifting shoes before). There's about a 1/2 inch gap between my toes and the front; everywhere else it fits very snug. I read on another forum that there should be hardly any distance between the toes and the front of the shoe; the shoe should basically fit like a glove. Is this correct?
The major problem I foresee is not being able to do a proper split jerk with them. I would take them out for a spin, but I plan on returning them if they're too big.
