    I'm about 5'2'' tall, and my shoe size is 3 US and 35 EU. (Yes, I buy children's shoes the majority of the time. )The heel-toe length ranges from 21.5cm to 22cm in the evening. I'm looking for a pair of lifting shoes that fit my feet, have a low heel height, and can be shipped to Europe. Asics lifting shoes have the lowest heel (0.5''), but I don't know how to get them. They are also beyond my budget (about 150 euros). I'd appreciate any suggestions.
    Try Sabo shoes, they are Russian and should have a Euro dealer.

I've been lifting in Do Wins now for 5 years and have been happy. The only reason I upgrade to the classics was to treat myself for keeping on my lifting schedule. Sounds silly but it a way to reinforce new habits, hahaha.

    The only thing I've done after three years of use was replace the sole that was getting warn down year the wood structure and changed the laces to 45" kevlar version. The originals were way to long for my taste.

    I recommend them, so plan on possibly sending a pair back to get a different size. Make sure you get a size that works for you.

    PS: I wear 9E dress shoes and boots.
    I hear ya. I do the same. I just picked up a set of High Temp bumpers so I can do my deads and powercleans outdoors. My house is on pier and beam. I think I am going to grab that Buddy Capps All American bar for my next upgrade. I have the B&R 2.0 bar and love it. Then hopefully a full set of strength co plates if uncle same doesn't completely steal all of my wealth this year.

    Thanks I think I am going to buy a pair if I can find em in 12.

    Thanks. I will check these two. They both look great. Anta and Sabo shoes have heel heights of 0.787 inches and 0.77 inches respectively.
