We love hearing new things and original ideas about CrossFit. Unfortunately we been seeing a decent amount of spam coming through. Rembedding youtube videos on a blog and posting a link to it will result in a warning followed by a ban. If you want to show the video, post it to the subreddit!I tried them on at the crossfit gym I workout at. They fit true to size and are comfortable. Now considering I do more weightlifting than crossfit, I wouldn get them. I do not feel planted into the floor like my nikes. The romaleos feel like magnets to the platform. The heel also didn feel as stable as my nikes. The only other only shoe I tried is the Adidas top of the line shoe and I would prefer that over reeboks. But the heel cup on the nikes feels so much better (MY opinion, not fact of course) and the tubes used for support are much stiffer than the reebok heel support. I know a few people at the crossfit gym I go to switch out their shoes for oly lifts if they can. Keep that in mind if you want to get the nikes because there is damn near no flexibility in the forefoot. I wouldn dream of doing box jumps in them so you could imagine what running would be like. I have never had an athletic shoe that gives me such strong support and the feel of being magnetized to the ground. I figure if the Chinese olympic weightlifting team uses them than my super novice self could get some benefit from it. They also make sure that the heel height matches the person since a taller person with longer tibias would benefit from a higher heel, from my understanding. Best bet is the VS Athletics for $85. Good reviews, work exactly as you expect for OLY shoes, just not quite as flashy or nice looking as others. I read some things about durability of them not being the best, but unless you using them 4 5 days a week for heavy training I don think it be much of an issue.
You could try looking through /r/weightlifting for their thoughts on shoes as well, thats dedicated to lifts only and I sure people there know all the shoes around to look for.
