Default Unusual question, but I'm looking for pink WL shoes



I've gotten roped into to doing the ECG meet in October by my two young daughters (7 and 11). They are doing the comp as well. My 11 year old has requested a pair of pink WL shoes. She's been using chucks for now, but she likes my "sexy bowling shoes."

In any event, do any of you wiser than me know if any company makes such a thing? A quick search revealed none, but I thought perhaps someone might know.

Thanks in advance for any answer anyone can give.

All the best,
Arden

The selection of weightlifting shoes in the world is limited, to say the least. Your best bet may be a pair of white shoes and a little pink shoe dye.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate it.

Ironically, my wife and I were watching the Keg Toss at the WSM on Saturday and nearly all the overseas athletes wore WL shoes during the event. For some unknown reason, my wife requested a pair of the shoes as well as "there has to be something to them."

All the best,
Arden

One of our girls - Sam - wears silver and pink adidas WL shoes - I'll ask her where she got those when she comes in.

Thanks Leo.

I'm thinking of getting a plain pair of white do-wins for now as the price is right. My 11 year old daughter wears a 9.5 and my wife wears a 9. So they can share for the time being. When my daughter gets around 13 or 14, and hopefully her feet stop growing, I'll drop the coin on the really sweet adidas's assuming she still has an interest (I think she will).

All the best,
Arden
