    for casual wear, the roshe runs are better. despite what the name suggests, the roshes arent suited for running due to the sole, but very comfy. why not get the roshes from the aforementioned links above if theyre overcharging in nyc?

    Hey,

    would it come to pass that we would go into the discussion of weightlifting gear (and I do hope we can avoid that) we would have to consider function over form. Squat (and in particular the squat done in olympic squat form) benefits from heel. Tried and proven method is to use wooden "heel", there are also plastic editions etc...
    Deadlift should not be done with squat shoes. Chuck tailors work nicely for the deadlift. Way better than frees. Chucks work better for squat (esp low bar) than frees as well. Ofc the ones you linked are about perfect as well... just not as multipurpose as chucks.

    When you're liftng 220pounds and up of course. Lifting 100lbs can be done in zoom vomeros as well.

    I lift in my Free 3.0 v4's, they've got the lowest heel-toe drop, before I got these I'd slip my shoes off for DL and Squat.

    Depends. The mesh ones stretch. Go true. I wear a 9 in everything Nike including Roshes. The woven ones ran narrow.

    How can you homos not handle carrying your phone in the gym/running? I put mine in a 'pocket'. Works well imo.

    Anybody have a pair of Innevas? Wondering if I should stay TTS or size up. I have a wide foot, I wear a 11 in roshes (mesh) but when I tried the woven ones they were all uncomfortable. I remember hearing the Innevas can adjust width but not sure how true that is.

    they run true to size for me. although i feel it wouldn't have hurt me if i sized up a half (and i don't have the widest feet). they definitely feel a little narrow initially, but will loosen up after wear.
