anybody have these? i didn't find anything with the search. they are on sale in the local mall for 39.99 and look similar to the adidas samba. there's lots of pics of them online.
i think these are the ones at the mall:

work/family safe

should i just get the sambas? right now i have some adidas climacool running shoes that i crossfit in. i also have some adidas superstars, but they are not crossfit friendly from what i've been reading about footwear.

Benji,
It looks like there are little holes in the heel structure, that's going to provide some cushioning. Fine for running, not so hot for heavy lifting. Really check out the sole of the shoes you want to buy for CrossFit. If you want them for lifting you want them with as little give as possible. I got my Samba's at Academy Sports for $39.99, alot of guys really like old school Chuck Taylors as well. Other than that those shoes look pimp!:stirthepot:
