Olympic Weightlifting Shoes...

Where do you get yours???

I’m looking into getting a pair since I’m doing 2 oly competitions this summer, and want to buy a pair, but I’m not looking to spend too much since they will be my first pair.

Any recommendations? Also, is sizing any different?

Sizing is a little different. Try www.dynamic-eleiko.com and call them. They helped me alot.

I have Adistar Weightlifting - they are great but are a little narrow. They were the only ones I could get in Australia hwere I could give em back if they didnt fit.

I have heard good things about these ones

Dowin is another brand

These would have to be the cheapest

I have their throwing shoes and they are really good equal to every throwing shoe except the high endmodels from Adidas and Nike.

forgot to add werksan

I bought some Do-Wins. I wanted either the AdiStar or the Werksan ones, but they turned out to be really nice.

I got them at www.werksanusa.com.

I typically wear a 14 and the 13 fits just fine. I don’t know if that will help, but the sizing is a little different.

Same thing. Hopefully I’ll see you back here in Roch for the empires. However, I have to qualify in the Hudson Valley.
