Shoes worn by Chinese weightlifting team

Came across this picture of a Chinese lifter (Zhang Guozheng?) and after daydreaming about what it must feel like to nail a lift with that kind of weight on it I noticed his shoes. Pretty cool...I read Nike is only making them for similar teams as of now though. Maybe some competition from another well known athletic shoe maker could force Adidas to lower prices...although most here seem to be doing fine with the VS and Do-Wins.

Wow, those look really sweet. My family lives in HK, I'll get someone to ask around about them.

Adidas lost the Olympic contract to Nike - hence Nike getting interested in specific kit for minority sports. They've been developing a fencing shoe too, which looks very cool.
