Bought these as an upgrade from my Adidas powerlift 4's which served me well for a couple of years. I was not expecting a huge difference but these are far superior. First off they just look cool but functionally everything about them is great. Using both straps and then lacing up as well feels so secure and the wide heel is something I am a big fan of, I think it is more of a heel than my old shoes but I have not struggled to adjust at all. Yes they are heavy but you aren't buying them to go on hikes with and for powerlifting that won't ever be an issue for me. I bought the same size I do with any shoe and they were a little tight at first but after a few wears I have either got used to it or I have broken them in.
Overall yes they are probably the most expensive pair of shoes out there like this but I am 2 months in to using them and I am so glad I spent the money on them, plus they feel like they will last a long time.
