Wow. Hands down best deadlifting shoes I've tried for sumo. I don't like raised ankle support because it feels restrictive and normal slippers don't feel stable enough at heavier weights while converse and vans are too slim for me to spread my toes. These are perfect. The metatarsal straps make them super snug and the toe box is big enough for me to spread my toes for balance. Super soft interior if you don't want to wear socks. The quality is amazing as well. If you lift sumo and want to take footwear to the next level I would 100% recommend these shoes. Superior grip compared to sabos, converse, and slippers designed for conventional.
