How To Fit Lifting Shoes

I just recently got two pairs of olympic lifting shoes from power firm per C.T.'s recommendations but I’m having trouble figuring out which size to take. Does anyone have any tips on how olympic shoes should fit? Am I looking for something roomy like runners, or locked tight like hockey skates?

Any help will be much appreciated.



Go for a pair that fits fairly tightly.
The leather will soften over time. They might even be a bit uncomfortable the first few weeks you wear them.
