Thread: Big shoes for big boys

    I ordered a pair of powerlift 3s in 16US. We'll see how they work.

    The largest I could find the Do-wins was 14.

    May be too late now, but go to Amazon UK, search Do-Wins, there is either white/black or green/yellow style, both in size 15. Note: the new model, Gong Lu 3, isn't currently selling size 15s but the Gong Lu II versions are in size 15.

    What about shoes for little boys?

    My 11yo wants lifting shoes like his big brother, but I'm not paying $200 for shoes he's gonna grow out of.

    Is there any reasonable option better than flat sneakers like chucks?

    Powerlift 3s can get pretty cheap. Under $50 on Prime Day last week for an ugly color.

    This is good to know. (I'm in Canada)

    If the Powerlift are subpar I'll try these next. The 2.5 cm heel intimidates me slightly. (1 inch seems like alot... I guess I could pull out a pair of sh*tkickers to see how it feels)

    Those legacy lifters look dank, though. Sigh.

    *Update*

    The Powerlift3's came in. 16US.

    They are a little tight in the toes, we will see how the break in. (pinky toes were sore after first session -- no blisters) Fit well around the heel and the midfoot and are slightly longer than I would prefer.

    They are kinda 'cheap' feeling, but look good and (at least right now) grip the floor strongly. I might swap the laces... the ones that came with them are one of the 'cheaper' feeling components.
