Nike Romaleos 2

Nike has improved on the already outstanding Romaleos with the Romaleos 2 for 2012. Although the original Romaleos are probably one of the more stable weightlifting shoes out there and fantastic for Olympic lifting and Power lifting, they are a little on the heavy side and are not as flexible in the forefoot as some of the other shoes which could hinder movements like double unders and box jumps. The improvements for 2012 include lightening the shoes by 50 grams and increasing the flexibility of the forefoot, which not only makes them better for non-weightlifting movements, it allows you to generate more force when jumping to create speed and elevation on the bar. What has not changed is the unique heel cup that gives amazing lateral stability in the bottom of a squat.
