Just a heads up. It's funny that no one has encoutered the same problem, but here goes. I had a pair of adidas, but they were too small. I used them for a year, I loved them, but had no room in the toe box and it was effecting my jerks. I saved some money getting a pair of do-wins as replacements, but there is a major difference between the 2 shoes. First of is the amount of heel lift in the asian made shoes. At first I thought this would be a plus, given my relatively tight hamstrings. But in the end, too much forward inclination began to give patella pain in the squat, threw off my positioning during the 2nd pull, and is not helping my torso to stay erect during the dip and drive of the jerk. I have the right size adidas on order, and until then I will either lift in tennis shoes or barefeet.
Apparently asian shoes are designed to emphasize quads during the lifts, something that the buyer should be aware of.
Plus, in the end, I laughed my ass off trying to save 50 bucks on the sport of weightlifting. Why.....my hockey stick alone cost me 250, mtn bike over 1k, climbing gear $$$, snowboarding $$$$, compared to the 150 bucks if I go big with the adidas shoes. Which I will never need to replace again.....unlike my bike, hockey equipment, etc......
my 2 cents,
