Olympic Shoes

Biting the bullet and buying my first pair of Oly Shoes.
Any reason not to get the Adidas Powerlift 2 for $90 vs the Reebok etc. for $150 or more? I'm fairly experienced at CF but not going to games or anything...
Thoughts?

Re: Olympic Shoes

I guess no one wants to jump in. The heel in those things is shorter/less tall however you want to say it. I'd say just buy Adipower/Romaleo/Asics TOW727 (if you wanna be super rad). You should never be left wondering if you shoulda

Re: Olympic Shoes

I have Adipower weightlifting shoes, and highly recommend them. I also have Nano 4.0s that I lift in from time-to-time, but I goto my Adipowers for any real Olympic Lifting work!
