What weightlifting shoes would you recommend? Looking to invest in a new pair and want a good quality pair of shoes for a decent price. Are there any to complete avoid?

I have the Do Wins, on the advice that they're good for wider feet. I like them, very comfortable and durable.

I got my bowling shoes for free from Morecambe superbowl. I traded them for my Primark pumps. The bowling alley were not aware of the trade until after I had left.

I might try lifting in them next week.

To constructively add to the thread, I have had Do-wins and now have addidas and rate my Addidas very highly (over the do-wins) however if they were not free I would never have paid the price for them. Do-wins are great value for money, but as I said, can look like bowling/clown shoes.

StrengthShop mate and I think with delivery they were around 175 but the quality is excellent and they feel they will last for years. They genuinely are the best shoes for lifting I've ever had, feels so planted and so well supported.
Without doubt I would get them again and i'm broke and tight!
