Nike 2 Oly

Any information on these? How updated will they be? New color schemes? I'm excited ;D

I'm also excited because if they're coming out with an updated version, that probably means that the current version will decrease in price... Which makes this guy very happy.

Re: Nike 2 Oly

Having got the current Romaleos, I can't wait to get my new lifting shoes for christmas.

Nike have said they have done away with the drawbacks of the Romaleos.

Re: Nike 2 Oly

Shoes are heavy (not what you want for Oly, especially when splitting), forefoot isn't flexible enough (makes split jerking a lot more difficult than it should be) and my heel starts to slip up out of the shoe when I reach end range dorsi-flexion.

Re: Nike 2 Oly

Got a style number yet?

I was told that they were just updating the color. My Nike rep doesn't waste his time with stuff like this, he only works on my company's account so he wouldn't be able to tell me anything.
