Awesome. Right now i'm using some kanamas (anyone from Ontario) not very nice but functional or good looking

The heel is .75" on Nike, Chad, and the Adidas are 1.25," the insole is just higher in the Nikes.

I love my Nikes myself, I feel they offer the most stability of any shoe but the insole height makes me feel a little too tall and I feel they would be perfect if they were slightly higher in heel height.

I've wanted a pair of Romaleos since they came out but getting them in Australia has proved virtually impossible.

Does anyone know of a place that stocks them? As best as I can determine Nike made a bunch before the olympics and then discontinued them and all thats left is a few pairs in size 4 and size 17

Hmmm, well that would make sense too. They just "feel" steeper, but I actually seem to squat better in the Nikes.

i think i'm gonna get a pair of these. any objectors or anybody with any advice please tell me now, for this is my first pair of OL shoes.

I'm sorry to bring back up an old thread, but I have just gotten my hands on a set of the Romaleos. I feel pretty comfortable in saying that there is not a half inch difference between the heel height of them and the Adistar shoes. It is tough to quite get the measurement on the Nike, but they claim an effective 3/4 inch. The Adistar have just about the same when you do the heel minus fore foot thickness.
