Okay, I’m switching it up this week. I think I’ve pretty well sorted through every single CrossFit, CrossFit-related, fitness-related item that I own (which honestly is not a lot) and that I love and you should definitely buy. Now that I’ve run through that entire list (and some other random things), I’m making today about something that I am coveting but haven’t bought yet for whatever reason (Why Have I Not Bought This Yet Wednesday).
I do not own a pair of OLY lifting shoes. In fact, in real life I only rotate through 3-4 pairs of shoes (work shoes [which are old CrossFit shoes, I am classy], boots [weather permitting], Merrells for CrossFit, and occasionally running shoes). I’ve heard a lot about lifting shoes and, of course, I see a lot of lifting shoes at the gym. I’m really curious to try them out but not sure if I want to drop a ton of $$$$$ that I’m not sure will make a huge difference for me as an :::ahem::: casual crossfitter. Plus, am I really going to change shoes before a WOD? Is that going to happen? I’m not sure.
So, I’m going to do a little more research. Maybe for my 3 year CrossFit-iversary I’ll take the plunge. In the meantime, anybody have any great comparison website resources or personal testimonials on your fave lifting shoe and why? Send your thoughts my way.
