Sneaker Freaker Magazine - New Releases - NIKE ROMALEOS (2008 OLYMPICS)

i've never seen a 300 pound pan cnj 700 pounds
I wonder if they'll sell them.
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 like to beta test it.
those look ugly
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.
I was thinking that it would be better if they were high top...
From a history of weightlifting shoes here.
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
chucks are superior.
Hotter than you
these shoes are sport specific
you will never see a olympic lifter with chucks
what do you know. i do olympic lifts with chucks. should i post a vid so you can see?
so you will post the vid after you competed in Beijing?
