Best Weightlifting Shoe Value

I'm planning on buying my first pair of weightlifting shoes. I've been doing a little research on different models, but I still can't decide. Are the Adidas Ironworks worth the extra $40 over the Pendlays? Are the VS good enough quality at $76.

I've looked around the forums but haven't been able to find a direct answer. I appreciate any help. Thanks.

Sean Waxman world class oly lifter and coach, told me to go with the least expensive shoes. He designed the vs dynamo shoes. Hope this helps.

Re: Best Weightlifting Shoe Value

I just got my VS Athletics shoes about 2 weeks ago. I got the white leather ones instead of the black suede. I read the leather ones hold up longer. So far, they are excellent.

A little expensive, but IMO worth every penny.
