These shoes fit like a glove from the time I put them on. Sizing for me was a full size up from my Romaleos 2’s but they’re plenty wide enough for my fairly wide foot. There’s just enough security and plenty of flexibility. They’re very light, stable and well made. I initially questioned how different it would be but I’m a believer now, the wooden heel is awesome. As a bonus, you can’t beat the sound it makes when it hits the platform.
The show design and feel are great and really helped me. My lack of dorsiflexion has been compensated because of the 1 inch heel. Look forward to more colorways and whatever is there next release.
Really make a bold statement with these 100% stylish shoes. The wooden heels on a wooden platform grab attention with the sheer noise they create. This auditory feedback helps with lifting, I feel.
Really wanted to love this shoe but it was way too narrow for my foot. Quality looked good but can’t really comment on longevity. I was offered to switch to the r1 which is wider in the toe box but only a 1/2” heel which doesn’t work for me since I mainly do Olympic lifting. Why not make the best of both world’s and produce a shoe with a wider toe box and a 1” heel?
The shoe is great to squat in. I was using very crummy flats previously, and these shoes are significantly better. I am very pleased with them. They are custom/hand made so the fit will not be exact and you can see really small differences in the pair. The one problem that I have with this shoe is that my right shoe is just barely tighter than my left and it can be slightly uncomfortable for the first few minutes of wearing them. Full disclosure, my feet are also very wide.
