    I know people are always looking for a lower heel than the typical 3/4 inch heels on most modern lifting shoes. Check out the Nike Savaleos, they are less expensive than the Nike Romaleos and have a heel height of .59 inches. I've got a pair en route to see how they feel. Linked in case anyone else is interested.

    It includes clips for handstand push-ups, an exercise whose sole benefit is that it doesn’t require equipment. But yeah, the heel height is of interest.

    I don't see any "clips" on the shoe or mentioned anywhere in the description. Not saying they aren't there, I just don't see them. Where are they?

    The heel’s protruding edge minimizes its surface area against the wall. Nike copied it from their Metcon line, since this is a “hybrid” shoe. It may end up being good for lifting, but I’ve been gifted similar shoes and my experiences give me pause.

    I got the shoes and they were more narrow than my other Nike's to the point of crushing my toes together. If you order some, maybe think about ordering a size up. I returned them.

    How do you know the heel height?
    It seems like some shoes have the heel height stated, and others don't. I'm sure its been done to death; I wouldn't dare to start a new thread.
