How much of a price break would a group buy give us?  I'd probably be in for a pair.  I like the looks of the Do-Wins better.  

What do you mean by a pair of O shoes?  If CTs are better why can't we just get those?

I have a pair of the Do-Wins pictured and love them.  I was told that they have a slightly more elevated heel which is beneficial for those of us with inflexible ankles.  They are also the widest shoes available which is important for those of us whose shoe size ends in "EE".  Some weightlifting shoes have a reputation for being very narrow.

Do they really make that big of a difference?

Everything I have heard is that yes, they do make a pretty big difference. Had I not just bought a new pair of running shoes last week I'd totally be in for a pair...

If you are doing squats, deadlifts or any of the Olympic variations they make a big difference.  If you doing an isolation routine (biceps curls, leg extensions, leg curls, etc.. without squats, deadlifts or the olympic lifts) then they wouldn't really be beneficial.

That's all fine until you attempt to snatch a few hundred pounds.  They're not a crutch, they're for people (the now very quiet crossfitters come to mind) executing olympic lifts.


Well, for those that do Crossfit these would be perfect BUT only usable maybe once a month or less because often, the Oly lifts are broken up by 400m or 800m runs (for example one workout that comes to mind is: 5 rounds or 15 95# snatch followed by a 400m run). For workouts like that dedicated weightlifting shoes wouldn't work because of the run, and there is no time to change shoes.

10-20%?  I could be persuaded into the Do-Wins.  I need to move away from the running shoes anyway.
