I just oedered my shoes 2 days age! It sucks because I would have rather ordered from you! Next pair
ken c 2 | 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.

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

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

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 7 | 2008-03-09
Butch - Send us an email and we'll help you figure out a size.
Megan 8 | 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 9 | 2008-03-10
Megan - Yes.

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 14 | 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 15 | 2008-03-12
