I just oedered my shoes 2 days age! It sucks because I would have rather ordered from you! Next pair
ken c 2008-03-09
I got my vs oly shoes from you guys. they just got here and i can't wait to try them out. got this crossfit total competition out of the way down here in texas this weekend and now its more oly lifting from here on out.
kevin 2008-03-09
i have both a pair of do wins and a set of the vs ones, the do wins are by far a faster shoe but the vs does great for everyday training, you wont be dissapointed with them. only thing i did to alter them a little bit is get a leather punch out to make more airholes in the toe... they kinda skipped on the air conditioning a lil
kevin 2008-03-09
an additional point here, with the double strap you may find that you get a bit of a pinch if you come up on your toes like me instead of staying relatively flat footed. i just cross the strps in an x when i tie down instead, makes them alot more comfortable

Thanks for the info Kevin
Butch 2008-03-09
These will be my first oly lifting shoes. How can I make sure I order the right size so I don't waste time and $ on returning them for another size? Can I trace my feet and send the traces via email
Greg Everett 2008-03-09
Butch - Send us an email and we'll help you figure out a size.
Megan 2008-03-10
Are the sizes listed men's sizes? I just ordered a pair and realized I should have verified that before I did so.
Greg Everett 2008-03-10
Megan - Yes.

ken c 2008-03-10
snatch 155 pr
clean & jerk 210
front squat 275x1 250x2

so used my new VS oly shoes. the heel kinda feels like it's pushing me forward a little bit. may take some getting used to. snatch felt pretty good then when i got to the c&j it felt like i was spent. form was just shot. have never done these two lifts together in a workout. is this common for things to fall apart like that for a beginner? max c&j is 235 just for a reference.

did helen and lynne yesterday so i was all pull uped out.
Greg Everett 2008-03-11
Ken -

You'll get used to the shoes. I don't know if I'd chalk up your exhaustion to snatching and clean & jerking together, or to having done helen and lynne the day before - much more likely the latter. That's why you don't see those kinds of workouts on here.
Eric Jones 2008-03-12
