I have ristos and can confirm they're no good.

Sizing is fucking weird. I had to go up a full size because the length is really fucking short, but the width is wide. So the feet don't feel very stable.

Planning on getting adipowers at some stage.

Ditto to Lag and Hendrix; between me and my buddies we've tried a lot and your best bet is to go with the the Adipowers (narrower footed) or the Romaleos (wider footed).

Between them it just comes down to what fits (Adidas samba fits quite close to Adipowers) and then which colour if you go for the Romaleos (the Chinese colourway looks great, when mine are beat up (not for a while) likely next on my list.

Really? Ristos seem to have that supple leather of RO. You guys trying the Olympica? The older models do look like garbage.

good luck buddy getting the china romaleos anywhere notgoingtohappen/10

only shit thing with adidas' weightlifting shoes is they tend to become shittier every olympiad, ie the adipowers < 2008 adistar < 2004 adistar < ironwork

my coach has a shitload of adidas' shoes from different eras starting from circa '85 or so.

the olympica is the one I have.

leather is ok, nothing special. It's probably better than adidas leather but these are weightlifting shoes; I don't need depth of colour or luxurious leather. It's corrected grain anyway so it's not amazing leather or anything.

The problem is in the lack of heel cup.

They're not bad, they're just not good.
