    yea. My chucks are size 10 and they were kinda tight when I first got them so I figure 10.5 should be good. Hope they fit :x:

    norms are slightly bigger than my feet so this will give me a good tight fit.

    that's not what it says.

    # Men's sizes: 5-12, 13, 14, 15, 16 - NOTE: RUNS A HALF SIZE SMALL (ORDER HALF SIZE LARGER)


    If they "run small" that means your regular size will be too small for you so you need to order a larger size.

    bump for a good ass deal. Order one size larger than your athletic shoe!
    ex. athletic shoe size = 10
    VS Oly shoe size = 10.5

    I'm tempted to get a pair but I've been doing all my squats, deads, and goodmornings, etc shoeless lately and I love it.

    I have a pair and never use them. Squatting with them kills my knees. And unless you do push pressing/jerks I don't think they do much for overheads and even then I think its dependent on you. Either way they're a good deal so minus whale. Just saying I don't use mine

    I cant wait to squat in these. I'm so tired of balancing on 2.5lb plates when going A2G.

    Whatever your athletic shoe size is? I guess...
    You can always do a return. They are very friendly about returns.

    I do a2g barefoot or in flat shoes no problem... I'm thinking of doing my overhead work with my heels on 5's now just to see if it works though. Don't really feel like buying these shoes just cause I have 11ty pairs of shoes already.

    I bought a set of these, before this sale unfortunately, but I love them. Despite what the site says, the seem to run a half size LARGE.
    My feet feel much more stable squatting, and I have been alot less nervous about handling heavy (for me) weight (405x8) since regular sneakers and chucks were not feeling very stable for me. I still use chucks for deads though. I have noticed some increased knee pain, but i attributed that to the extra weight I was handling, and I slightly increased how low I went.
