Many of you have asked me about shoes. Specifically weightlifting shoes. Here is a rundown of SOME of the shoes out there. There are more from companies like Nike, Adidas, Position, etc. Most weightlifting shoes are designed for just that, weightlifting. They put your foot and body in a better position during Clean and Jerks, Snatches, Squats. Some are comfortable and light enough to crossover into CrossFit style WODs.
