    I like the idea of each sport having its corresponding line of footwear (that's what Nike has just done). That's the way it should be.

    That said a rationale behind making a shoe designed for archery must be pretty damn weird (though I can imagine archers saying that about shoes for lifting).

    If so I'd be up for trying them out. Probably run around $150?

    I'd guess more. Adidas' top of the line weightlifting shoe usually sells for ~$200.

    I'll stick with my Chucks, but cool to see companies like Nike making shoes specifically for lifting

    Why are people always comparing weightlifting shoes to Chucks? Apples and oranges.

    Chucks are great for powerlifting, not so much for olympic lifts.

    if they ever release it of course nike are probably going to be lamers and have it only in normal width. id be happy if they made it for us with he-man sized girth.... its probably made in a sweatshop though
