Thanks Glen! (I was told to try shoes before I buy - will be a lot easier not to do so tbh!)

What size are you?

Do-wins are real bowling shoe style squat shoes, I have never had a pair but I love the idea of the wooden sole and how little they care about looking cool, gives them a feel of authenticity.

For dogs rollock's shoes the Nike Romaloes and Addidas power perfect are hard to beat.

The only real way to try them is through the friends and acquaintances, I have had a few people send me squat suits etc over the last few years to see how I get on with them and likewise I try to spread the love.

The other option for trying them is to order something out of the Reebok cross fit range which seem to get good reviews. You can find them online easy enough and can just return them if the fit is not right.

I love my do-wins, the missus thinks they are geeky and golfish but I prefer to call them retro Wink

Well I like to think I can make anything look stylish *insert hair-flick emoji here* so I don't really mind how trendy the shoes are. They will become trendy by affixing themselves to my feet Tongue

I'm a normal shoe size 6 and I guess my feet a little wide if anything.

Hoping to borrow/try a singlet from my training buddy (she's out at the BPU Worlds at the mo and has just set a couple of World records Cheesy) and I can try her belt to see if the type/thickness suits me. I doubt we're the same shoe size though.

Do wins rock. I currently have adipowers which cost three times as much and are great shoes but right now if I was buying a pair Do wins would be what I would choose

I'll admit vanity took over with me and I was put off of do wins by the look of them. I know, terrible attitude.

Mid range have crossfit shoes as Dave said. Still have the heel but more flexible soles and can wear them the whole gym session. Adidas powerlifts and Reeboks would be an example.

Next up is adidas power perfect 2's which I have and love. Quite a traditional oly shoe but with a solid rubber type sole. About 80 quid.

Then top end adidas adipower which are 145-160 new and Nike Romaleos 2 which are 160+ in most places.

My belt is from strength shop and is great.

Singlets are the cheapest bit and are good to own. I think my adidas base lifter was 20-30 quid.

Yeah if I was going to get some more shoes do wins would be the top contender, when I see someone in them my brain goes "that guy is serious, he is putting looking fly right at the back of the pack and by default is even flyer"

Not that I use the word fly.

before we start pointing fingers at who corrupted who first you are the one that turned me sumo!  Shocked Grin

a most heinous crime..I have simply raised the stakes by adding EQ to that sumo.

now the real question is who wants to be the first to go triple ply canvas?

I wouldn't call it corruptipn, merely broadening the old horizons sir.
And as for the triple ply... Are we really gonna go there

A client just paid me extra because they brought their deadline forward.

I spent the money on belt and squat shoes.
