OK, I’m still a newb but I was thinking that as I get more serious about lifting, I would buy a pair of weight lifting shoes, as long as they aren’t chucks. I was really looking at the Romaleos, because they are down to $130, my parents will prob by them for me, and well, I’m a whore for pretty Nike products.
I really want to get into olympic lifting, but haven’t been able to find a reliable coach in the columbus area to help me train, so I just do lower weight versions with my (probably terrible) form.
However, I have been squatting/dlifting/pressing/benching/rowing a lot, would these shoes offer any advantage over any other random shoe? Specifically about squatting? I mean, if these shoes were great for oly lifting AND weight training, were reliable and would last me quite a bit of time, and were pretty, I’d pretty much be sold
Any comments on these shoes or any other models that you recommend?
