@Lagrangian:

 

You've heard anything about the Risto Olimpico's? Looking around for shoes and you seem to know a fair bit about different models and makers.

Anyone else heard anything about them, feel free to chime in.

 

Atm, it's basically a toss up between the AdiPower, Romaleo 2 or the Olimpico.

Eason why do you suck so bad at taking pics? Just use a front-facing camera and hold it over your shoulder with a mirror behind you.

I've got enough cheesecake, turkey, mash potatoes, and stew to make it to 220lbs.

I have the Ristos. They are extremely well made (by hand), very stable with a wood heel, and sold by a super nice guy.

I'd want Ristos for sure if I was shopping around for shoes. Paying that much for those Addidas is a big LOL

Guy at my gym today wearing a "do you even lift?" shirt, all belted and chalked up for his... 140lb bench and 230lb squat snork[1].gif

I'd pay money for adidas or the Nikes. Not Ristos, although they make the best straps money can buy.

But since (I think) you're not looking for a weightlifting specific shoe, the powerlift trainers are probably the cheapest option available for you.

Squats up to 255x5. Movin' on up.

Thanks for the input on shoes.

Yeah, only gonna use them for front and back squats. I've looked at the the powerlifts and the similar power perfect 2. While they seem like a decent affordable option, they appear to have some flaws, like the compression of the heel and being unstable, which seems to happen around 400 pounds (incl BW). On the other hand, they have a lower heel which could benefit my low bar squat.

I don't mind paying more for a really good shoe, like the Risto. The only downside i could see with those is the higher heel.

If I can take a back pic anyone can... Too bad I'm def where Eason thought he was at. My back > my twiggy arms. This was when I was chunky at 180... but still frown.gif

I saw a dude do 635 x 5 in powerlifts at my gym. They dont really compress..
