Well I got the Merrel Bare Access 2. Really happy with them so far. Extremely light and completely neutral in regards to the heel and toe height. Feels a little funny in the beginning, almost like I am falling backwards, guess I have gotten used to sneakers with a very high heel.

Tried them out at the gym yesterday and set a new PR on the deadlift. Not sure I can give all the credit to the shoes haha, but they felt great.

Apparently the Bare Access have been developed to ease people into bare foot running, so I guess you could call them a hybdrid. Not quite as extreme as Five Fingers but close.

Not bad, but don't have my size. Think I'm going to pick up the ones you ended up returning for the same price

Shoes for lifting

I wouldn't recommend the other ones at all. Just my opinion though. I'm glad I spent the other $60 for the mt10

For the Nike Frees, does anyone notice a difference between the free fun vs the free trainers?

Ended up with a pair of Nike Flex since they were on sale and wasn't feeling the colors on the nike frees the store had. I think a lot of the stock colors would look better with a dark or different colored sole. Not sure why pretty much all the colorways have a white sole. Might exchange one of the Flex for some custom frees.

Ended up returning these reeboks


Thought they looked great, but were too big. On sale for $40 right now if anyone is interested. If they had some 12s I'd probably take them....though the 11.5 might fit as the 13s were huge

Just ordered these bad boys:



Use coupon code EM20662F-298 for 20% off and free shipping at adidas web site. Total $173 after tax. I'm not the most advanced lifter, but hopefully the raised heels on these will help with my ankle flexibility and the butt wink that I'm getting while squatting.

You could have went cheaper. I have the $90 Adidas. My friend has those. He likes them a lot.

I noticed a big difference
I have the free trainer 3.0 and love them
Borrowed a pair of free run 5.0 and didn't like it
Did not feel as supportive and thought even the shoe was shaped a little differently

Here's the way I look at it: I have $200 lifting shoes so I have to reach my goal of cleaning and jerking 225lbs.

Extra motivation is priceless

The Adidas ones weren't an option for me as they're a narrow shoe and I have a wide foot, but lifting shoes are definitely worthwhile if you are pursuing big numbers in Olympic lifts.

I still deadlift either in socks or Vibrams though.

That's a concern for me, too. I have slightly wide feet, and I ordered half a size smaller after reading some reviews. Adidas is offering free returns in addition to free shipping, so I thought I'd give them a try.

If they don't work for you, I can say the Romaleos are very good shoes and are more accommodating to a wide foot (I wear an 11E, for reference.)

For anybody who is doing Olympic lifting though, and especially if going heavy, I can't stress enough that running shoes are not appropriate.

Romaleos is next in my list if these don't work. I hope adidas will fit fine though because I like the fact that they carry less bulk than romaleos.

Another option might be inov-8 335's. They are not an oly shoe, but light and flexible. Maybe I'll do some cf in those too!

The Romaleos are certainly substantial and have heft, but I think it's good if you're looking for a one-trick pony.

What I struggle with is that, if I want to get more competitive at CF, rather than just Oly lifting, I need to transition to a shoe like the 335 or whatever the Reebok is called. Ain't no way I'm doing anything but lifting in the Romaleos.

the Romaleo 2 do not have all the extra bulk/weight as the first model did. They weigh the same as the adidas.

I've tried them all and this is how I rank them:

1.) Adidas
2.) Romaleo
3.) VS Athletics (cheap and heavy, but those things were solid)

I have the Romaleo 2. I didn't realize they were lighter than the original.

As for them versus the Adidas, the Adidas seemed notably lighter, although the only ones I've handled are a size or size and a half smaller than mine.

Isn't the Romaleo the only one with a wood heel or something like that? I'd think that would make them heavier.

I know Froning does a lot in his Reebok Nanos. Heavy cleans and all. Those should be good if you want an all around good Cf shoe.

I was not referring to just weight. Nike is wider/bigger, has a thicker tongue than adidas does, thicker sole on the front, less toe flexibility... Maybe not such a big deal
