Weightlifting Shoes

Does anyone know of any sites to order Weightlifting shoes?

the only two sites I can find are :

http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com/products/shoesFR.html

and

http://www.werksanusa.com/products-shoe-shirts.asp

I was just wondering if anyone knew of any other place to buy OL shoes.

I’m looking for one with the wooden heels, so that rules out the VS Athletics one.

If not, I’m probably going to buy the Adidas Ironwork II, as they have my size (10.5, going by dress shoe size, 10’s to small, 11’s to big).

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a pair of Adidas Ironwork II that I ordered through dynamic-eleiko…great shoes! They are worth the money. The customer service was great and I had my shoes quick. I wear a 13 and they had mine in stock which was nice. This was the only site I could find that sold those shoes.

OP,

I second the suggestion for the Do-Win shoes from Witchita Falls. I know a couple of guys at my gym that have them and absolutely love them. The heel is a bit higher than on the Adidas Adistar and Iron Works II, which you may or may not prefer.

Plus, Glenn Pendlay at Witchita Falls is a great guy to deal with. The Do-Wins are also better if you have wide feet, as some people find the Adidas shoes a bit narrow.

Raw Power,

How long have you had your Iron Works? I know a few people with the Adistar shoes from Adidas, and they don’t seem to be wearing very well. In general, it seems that the Iron Works, although slightly cheaper, are the better Adidas shoe.

Soup,

I’ve had mine for 8 months now. I wear them every day that I train and they are holding up very well. I have no complaints with mine. They were better than what I had expected.

I’ve been wearing a pair of Ironworks for about eighteen months now, I believe, and they’re still in excellent condition. I use them at every workout.

I don’t do that much Olympic lifting so the wear is definitely a bit less than if I was shuffling my feet around all the time.

As far as shoes, the main ones I know are:

http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com/
http://store.wfwclub.com/shoes.html
http://www.weightliftingshoes.ca/
http://www.vsathletics.com/product.php?xProd=1301&xSec=1

The ones sold by Pendlay are basically the Werksan shoes, I believe. So, that Werksan link posted up above yields the same product.

yeah, see my feet run narrow, so I’ll probably end up buying the IronWorks.

Thanks guys :-d
