Weightlifting Shoes

Hello all, I'm in the market for a good pair of weightlifting shoes. I'm sold on a new pair of Rogue Do-Wins, the only problem I have is how the shoes are supposed to fit. Should they be snug or feel like an ordinary shoe?

I think they're supposed to be snug for maximum stability. My toes go all the way to the end, but they're not squished. They fit perfect. They're size 11, I wear 11.5 regular shoes.

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

If you haven't ordered the shoes yet, Don't.
I was just looking at rogues site & their shoes are selling for $119 plus shipping.
To my uderstanding you can by the exact same shoe (withiout the rouge logo) from VS Athletics (www.vsathletics.com/).
I just ordered a pair roughly $83 (that's with tax, free shipping) & they said I'll have them by monday.

size wise I agree with Michael

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

is the heel made of rubber, or the rubber just a covering?

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

Just the covering on the bottom is rubber. The actual heel is wooden.

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

But it doesn't mention that the heel is wooden on the vsathletics site.

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

i have a pair of pendlay do-wins, they're like 70's retro and a bit too showy for me. they are also very cheaply made and the materials are a total joke. for over $100 i thought the materials and chinese workmanship was poor.

but with a $25 re-stocking fee i just kept them, they do the job and i only wear them for squats and cleans.

Re: Weightlifting Shoes

I'm pretty sure that the Rouge's (made by Do-Win) and the VS are completely different shoes. Anyone chime in if I am wrong or has any more info on that. I would check out the Risto's or the Talon's from Again Faster. Just remember you usually get what you pay for.

Yeah you're right. The VS. shoe is not the same as the Do-Win.

What makes you say that? I've owned both and would say they appear to be manufactured by the same company.
