I'm eyeing weightlifting shoes from Do-Win because they're affordable. Currently there are two models offered (here) with the material used to raise the heel as the functional difference. One is made from rubber and the other is made from laminated wood. Is there any noticeable difference between the two? Which one do you prefer?
Also, will the wooden one make loud noise when you walk with them? I remember one weightlifter walking while wearing wood bottomed shoes and the sound was like a woman walking with high heels.
