Discount on VS Weightlifting Shoes
 
These seem to be well thought of and a great price at $72 so I've just ordered a pair each for my hubby and myself. If you order before 14th feb and enter the code 'valentine' you get 5% off.

Yay, my own 'magic' shoes at last :D

If you use a discount Code CF1007 or ask for CF discount when you buy the shoes and you get them for $59.95.

Can anyone with experience with both the VS Athletics and the Adidas adiStar or Ironwork II shoes offer a comparison? Primarily, differences in heel height. Judging by the pictures I've seen, the VS seems to have a higher heel than the Adidas. I've been lifting in these (wfs) http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com/images/IRONWorKb.jpg , but they are the University's so I want to get a pair of my own.

If anybody is interested, I am trying to get rid of a brand new pair of Adistars in their box that a friend left me hangin' with after I bought them for him. Some friend!!! If anybody is interested, I would sell them for some sort of discount as I am trying to recoup most of my loss. They are size 13. Let me know.

First off the heel height is a personal preference so I will give you my opinion. I am no expert in these matters.

You will not be disappointed with the VS versus other footwear but if you are already wearing the Adidas lifting shoes you may or maynot be comfortable with the change.

I have worn both the VS athletic and the Adistar, I own the Adistar now . I prefer the adistar vs. the VS Athletic because of the slightly flatter heel & comfort. I will admit that I wore the Adistar first and therefore I am biased. The adistar is extremely comfortable for my foot, the VS was not as comfortable in my opinion.

I wear "D" width shoes. In some athletic shoes like Adidas Samba's and running shoes I wear a 12 because of width, in dress shoes I wear an 11D, my Adistars are an 11 and could not be more comfortable.

"The adistar and Ironworks II are identical in performance." That is what I have been told by many many people including Todd @ http://www.dynamic-eleiko.com.

Hope this helps...

Leonid, thanks! I only wish I'd known that when I ordered them but they're still a great price compared to what you can get lifting shoes for in the UK, even with international shipping on top.

I've been crossfitting for a year now and been lusting after lifting shoes for about the last 9 months, but I've not quite been able to justify the price of the adidas ones and there haven't been any ebay bargains.

Chris, I've borrowed both the adistar and ironworks to lift in so when the VS arrive I'll let you know how they compare.

George - how much do you want for the adistars?

I'd let them go for $165 plus shipping. Let me know.
