As far as the oly shoes, I've been wanting to try some and the Again Faster shoe has been on my radar for a few weeks. Just not sure now.

Re: Review: Again Faster Lifter vs. Reebok Lifter

Guys, I bought the adidas trainer a couple years ago. it was a nice shoe but half size too small. The problem with ordering without trying on i guess. So i sold them used and bought the AF lifter a few months ago. They are great, functional and the heel height is perfect to me. I agree it seems that the construction may not last as long as some of the other more expensive types but AF is pretty clear on their website..."We engineered the Again Faster Team Oly Shoe to give you a solid lifting platform at a low cost, omitting frills in favor of effectiveness. Itís everything you need to lift heavy, and nothing you donít."

Awesome response Jon.

It's nice to see positive criticism and even better response in a professional and courteous environment!

Kudos Jon...love seeing this type of customer service.

So far, I have only purchased your speed ropes but I will say, I LOVE it and have sold 5 more of them for you based on letting people try mine. Love that rope.

Re: Review: Again Faster Lifter vs. Reebok Lifter

I've got the AF shoes and I love them. No problems yet but have only gotten to use them 3-4 times so far. If the $130 mark is your price range and you are going to wait for V2.0 of the AF's, take a look at Risto. They are supposed to be GREAT and the company is very ethical with how it treats its workers in Ecuador where the shoes are handmade. Worth looking at for sure and where else are you going to get pink badass Oly shoes??! LOL

Re: Review: Again Faster Lifter vs. Reebok Lifter

I just today had a similar experience with AF and the team shoes.. I received a pair for Christmas and only wear them on occasion. the sole started to separate so I emailed in looking for a replacement. I love the feel of the shoes and the price point. I was surprised at how great the CSR was. I would have gladly accepted a replacement pair yet they are modifying the team shoe I guess and are very limited in size. So I was giving a % discount on a different brand. That was not necessary but certainly appreciated they could have told me to wait until my size was available. I have a lot of AF equipment in my garage and my gym bag and customer service like this will keep me coming back!

Sean,

I'm stoked the team took good care of you, Brother. We always will.

Enjoy the new kicks, and definitely give us a shout if you need anything, ever.

Best,

Jon
