Let nothing stand in the way of elite fitness. This lifting shoe weighs only 13.4 ounces (380gms) and has injected TPU in the heel wedge for the lightest weight stability platform. U-form technology gives you a super custom fit.

Great first Oly shoe
Been doing CrossFit regularly for seven months, and only recently did I feel like my footwear might make a difference in my lifting. After one session with these, I discovered just how big a difference, and how perfectly these Lifters meet the needs of a beginning-to-intermediate CrossFitter.
I waited to get these shoes because I wanted to make sure I was committed, but if you think for a moment that you'd benefit for these: you're right, get them now. They provide an immense amount of stability in the heel while being just versatile enough to handle the metcon aspects of WODs. I unexpectedly felt the benefits in kettlebell swings, box jumps, and even rowing. Looking forward to more WODs and further improvement with these shoes.

Great CrossFit intro
Very glad I picked these up, only wish I had done it sooner. Great stability while being light, ideal for beginning CrossFitters. The toe box is wide, but that allows for good movement during lifts. Got scuffed a little easily by a rope climb, but I'll give that a pass since the shoe is so comfortable.

Instant favorite
I can't wear this thing enough. Perfect for wearing on the way to a workout, a good extra layer for a workout, or a great post-workout top. And, basically anything else, as it's the perfect shirt for "in-between weather:" too cool for shorts/tshirt but too warm for jeans/sweater. I'm extremely impressed with the comfort and quality of the fabric, and will definitely be buying other PLAYDRY gear because of it.

Great CrossFit intro
I got used to running with barefoot shoes (Vibram Trek) and needed to get something to transition into CrossFit. These are a great balance of light shoes with enough drop in the heel to support the key movements and lifts in WODs. I highly recommend these as a first CrossFit shoe.
