Having never owned lifting specific shoes before I relied heavily on the reviews for these! They were pretty positive so I bit the bullet and got them not really knowing what to expect. I’d previously just been hacksquatting and deadlifting in my squishy runners!! Holy smokes what a difference!!! Not only did I smash out 2 new PB’s of 160kg of plates in the HS and 80kg DL but I had no pain in my knees or lower back AND my knee didn’t roll in like it would before! 10000000/10 would recommend!!
