To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
After spending hours and hours reviewing varying functional fitness shoes I settled with these. At £45 (+ delivery) they were miles cheaper than any others. A few reviews by 'experts' commented on the narrow/too tight fit. Piffle. They're snug round the heel and tight if laced up worng across the mid-foot, but the toe box is so wide! Plenty of room for toe splay in heavier lifts. Now, I'm not one of these CrossFit super-humans. I'm a stronger than average chunky guy. So far I've deadlifted, walked very quickly, lifted too much over my head and squatted in these clogs and I'm impressed. I wouldn't walk too fast/too quickly in them, the near solid heel doesn't lend itself to such an act and ones ankles will suffer as a result. As for lifting, the near flat sole, wide toe-box and mega stable heel give mucha confianza!
Really sturdy trainer. Feel very planted and stable when lifting weights. They give good all round support. Little bit uncomfortable at the cuff of the heel at first (with trainer socks), but after about 10 wears they were fine. Would recommend them for gym wear.
Yes - I would say these shes are as good as Nike's Metcon although I would point out one thing - for the first few wears they are DESPERATELY uncomfortable! Very rigid. I would recommend walking to and from the gym in a pair of well broken in trainers, and slipping these on once you are there or you will have very sore heels!
Please be aware to return these trainers due to been to big .... You the customer !!! pays the return postage in this case £11 . No offer to change trainer for a smaller size ... Will not be ordering anything from this shop again ......
Shoes fit perfectly as a size 11 but they came dirty as if somebody else had them before me. I would have returned them but the fit was so amazing I decided to keep them. Shame about the delivery otherwise 5 stars
