Olympic Sneakers and Shoes: adiStar Weightlifting

Hope your wallet is ready: 200 Dollars for these.

I’m having a tough time finding out who is wearing what and so forth, but at least I know that somebody is wearing these. For weightlifting shoes, these things look hot. I would get them just to walk around in although I am sure that they are not as cushioned as megabounce.

I have a pair of Nike Shox that I use in the gym when I’m more or less stationary doing lifts and pushes (when I’m running I choose my Air Max 360 Rejuvenation or my adidas Megabounce “Rainbow Brights” (more on that later)). Did I mention that I have not gone to the gym yet even though I paid for the whole year? Did I mention that the year is up and I’m going to pay for the next year and have not planned on when I am going to go?


Here is the low down on the adiStar Wightlifting:

You got to love it. The cost? 200 Dollars!!! That is allot of weight lifting for my wallet (and they aint even Eggplant Foamposites!!! lol) If you have the fashion sense and want the optimum in weight lifting ability, you are gonna get what the Olympians are wearing… and that is the end of my commercial.
