Which shoes to buy?
I have now decided to buy some real weightlifting shoes, but I am unsure of which I will buy. The choice is basically between these two:
The Do-Win's seems to have a very high heel, which I don't know if will be very benificial (I don't have any flexibility issues regarding any of the lifts). However, I have never heard of "Mirunz" shoes before, so I don't know how they shoes generally are.
Any input on which shoes which I should buy will be greatly appreciated, and of course, any experiences with the shoes (or some similar) is very welcome
It's hard to be certain, but the Mirunz shoes look suspiciously like rebranded Wei-Ruis:
I just got a pair of Wei-Ruis, and I like them. Not the same model, though.
If you're just going to be squatting and power-cleaning, the Do-Win's 1.5 inch heel might be counter-productive. You might be able to get it reduced relatively cheaply. If you're going to be doing full cleans and snatches, maybe the 1.5 inch heel is not such a bad idea.
Oh, and foot width is a factor. The Wei-Ruis are a little shorter and wider than the same-sized Chucks. I hear Do-Wins are wider still, though I've never tried them.
Those are 1.5 inch heels? Anyway, when in doubt, go with the cooler looking shoe, in this case the Mirunz.
That was my guess. Maybe 1.25, on second thought. But apparently they do have Do-Wins with smaller heels:
