Re: Reebok Oly Shoes.

I would be interested in seeing how they perform in both Oly lifting and in other movements commonly encountered during WODs. I like the idea of an Oly shoe that allows you to do other things but what is the cost paid when it comes to doing olympic lifts as compared to traditional lifting shoes? If there is much of a difference I would rather have two separate pairs of shoes.

itll probably be proportionate to she size like Nike's or Risto's. At least .75".

I think its pretty funny that Reebok is the official sponsor of crossfit but they dont even have a representative around to answer questions like these but unofficial crossfit venders like Rogue are always around.

So yea, what i am trying to get at is maybe buy from the little guys.

I dont have any reebok shoes to compare, but I normally wear a 10.5 in other brands (Inov 8 230, New Balance MT101)

Re: Reebok Oly Shoes.

I have some coming. My Rips are solid shoes but have not held up.

I was thinking about getting the older Adistars but I figured I'd try these out.

I'll post up a full review when they come. I'm hoping they wear better than the rips.
