So whats a good bet in terms of what brand/model to choose?
I dont mind paying for quality but on the other hand, Im the one whos gonna wear them so no need for "superduperallstarthousandsofdollarshoes that would win the olympics.
Ive been looking at some of the "mainstream" brands like Rogue, Nike, Adidas but frankly have no idea how to "judge the quality" and most reviews seem to have different opinions, as is expected with such a personal item like shoes.
My only preference is a 3/4 heel....
Any general recommendations?
Thanks in advance for leaving my head on!

If you dont like getting the wrong size in the mail I would think that you are restricted to running shoe companies whose sizes are the same as their lifting shoes. That just leaves adidas and nike.

This seems like a pretty honest physical comparison bwn the shoes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1MeJOChuOQ

I just bought myn son a pair of the adidas and he has a wide foot so maybe i bought him the wrong shoe!

cheers
