Re: Black Friday

Ah. Well that stinks a bit. Happy with my current shoes, just got these because they were a heck of a good deal and having a backup never hurt anybody.

Re: Black Friday

I guess I was just heated because I sold my shoes to make room for the new ones, and don't like the fact that I missed any other black Friday shoe deals because of it. Oh well.

That's terrible. Sorry to hear.
Did they offer any consolation deal?

I am also pretty disappointed, I was planning on buying the shoes anyways. At that price I was pumped. Could have picked them up off of adidas's website for $160, but now they don't have my size...shoot! Oh well.

Re: Black Friday

I am now on the hunt for some quality lifting shoes. I liked my Reebok lifters but now I think I'll stick with pure lifting shoes this time. I never came across a time I couldn't either change shoes or just wear my inov-8 for the workout.

I think I'll look into the Adidas Power Perfect 2 and the Pendlay Dowin. If there are any holiday deals coming up still then maybe the Nike romaleos 2 or the Adipower.

Most likely scenario.. As it seems folks that ordered early on got orders shipped out...

I am extremely upset, since I sold my Reebok crossfit lifters as soon as I purchased those, for much less than they cost me of course. Not to mention the fact that we have all just missed out on any other black Friday deals for Weightlifting shoes that their might have been.

I have no idea how a company can advertise such a great black Friday deal that everyone jumped on, onlyto to later be completely be unable to fill any of their orders.

Now I guess I'll have to figure out a way to stretch my budget for some new lifting shoes, since I don't have a pair anymore.
Preeeeetty disappointed. I was so excited that these were going to be my first pair of weightlifting shoes...
