Inov-8 fastlift shoes

#1 Postby AndiMorris » Fri Oct 18, 2013 7:59 am

Hi,
has anyone got any experience of these Inov-8 olympic lifting shoes? Inov-8 are a good vegan brand with a good company ethic and if these are any good I think they'll fill the gap in my olympic lifting shoes hole.

If not, does anyone have any recommendations for vegan lifting shoes?

Wait, those shoes are made from PU Leather (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicast_leather) PolyUrathane Coated leather...am I missing something? (Not the chucks, the ones listed, I always lift in chucks.)

I emailed the shop to check and they said that the materials are vegan but they can't guarantee that glue is.
Chucks are vegan then?

Nike Romaleos 2 are synthetic Olympic shoes and well worth their price.
