    Are these shoes suitable for all of our SS lifts?

    I love Ripís shoes, but a bit spendy for me at the moment.

    I don't have any shoes. So these will have to do.

    I have shoes, but my 9 year old DoWins are coming apart some inside the shoe. Iíd like to order your new shoes, and some day likely will, but these seem less expensive but not cheap. Just seeing if anyone has any experience with them.

    Ah, I see, maybe that is your answer: If one has no shoes, these are better than nothing? But as I mentioned I have what were good shoes, but am no longer very informed.

    I used those for three or four years and they are still good to go. For Christmas I upgraded to the leather ones and put the old ones on the shelf for backup. I'm a big fan of the Do-Wins.

    You said you liked Rip's shoes.

    He doesn't have any.

    So these are a good substitute, until Adidas gets their head out of their ass and finally agrees to start manufacturing RippeToe 500s.

    Ah, I see. I was not up to date on the delayed rollout. Thank you.

    In 2023, the American industrial base can't sustain a limited-production, prepaid run of shoes for the world's foremost strength coach. Kind of like how the biggest American tool company can't make a wrench onshore, despite years of trying. When historians discuss the hollowing of the economy, I hope they cite this.
