Shoes at the Games

Anybody know what kind of shoes those Yellow Reeboks are that a lot of competitors are wearing?? They are certainly not those Zigtechs that we saw in a lot of the pre-games videos...

Re: Shoes at the Games

I think the competitors were given the new Reebok Crossfit shoes and Weightlifting shoes that are not yet available to the public.

Glad to hear this, thought that maybe they were banned.

Were they really? A bunch of friends were there, I would've told them to pick me up a pair! Rumor has it that they'll be for sale to the public in November.
