Rated 5 out of 5 by LF Good squatting shoe
I'm still getting used to these shoes but I think they will become my go to squatting shoe. A lot of people like the raised heal and I get that but I think the best part is the stiff no give sole-- it cups your heel and is super solid. I have never had a shoe this rigid and it feels good for lifting. It may sound funny but the shoe seems to stick to the ground (figuratively) during a squat setup. As to the sizing, I wear a 10.5 Nike sneaker and the 10.5 Romaleo 2 size did seem perfect for me.
On the negative they are a specialty shoe that will set you back around $200. I will only wear these at the gym. I do like the 2 velcro straps on each shoe but the top strap is a little long (so far it has not gotten in the way but I wouldn't be surprised if that changed over time)

Best pair if workout shoes I have ever bought. Keeps your feet planted to the floor for every workout. The run true to size for athletic shoes. Nice and snug.. The only problem I have had is that they don't breathe very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick M. Romaleos 2
I am very pleased with my recent purchase of Nike Romaleos 2 weight lifting shoes. I have a wide foot- I wear a 10.5 EE in a dress shoe- and have difficulty fitting into shoes that are standard width. I purchased a size 11 Romaleos 2 and the fit is great. Additionally, the toe box is roomy enough for comfortable wear yet the heal is snug enough to prevent sliding. The heal platform is exactly what I had expected, I lose nothing on each lift due to compression of the heal. The construction is excellent and I would definitely buy them again if I had to do it all over again.
