Perhaps the more experienced members/lifters can respond to this. Are the heals on weightlifting shoes all the same thickness?
I would like to know which ones run thicker and which ones run thinner...unless all the same?

Any info is appreciated.

I don't have much experience, but I'll tell you what I've observed.

The Do-Wins have thicker heels and more slope from front to back in comparison to other shoes.

To me, that would be better for folk that aren't as flexible in the ankle and calves. But I could be wrong.

I'll defer to others.

All the best,
Arden

Old VS very TALL,
