second old bull's comment, a few lifters down here have found them ok. other options are queensland lifting, or order from the states if you want addidas, though they are expensive.

Cheers

Phillip

I've heard some of the Cross fit gyms around NZ are buying Pendlay Barbell OL shoes (this would be in bulk from the states) I know Crossfit Lowerhutt has some, may pay to enquire with them, as I imagine they would have them for sale to members.

I just called Donna at Crossfit lower hutt and they don't have any "spare" lying around for sale. She did put me onto the following 2 sites to try. Both are US, but they have used them and theysaid they are quick and relaible. prices looked ok? I have asked for a price to ship to NZ to get an idea, but she said it was for about $200 NZ or just under to get a pair from the US?

Awesome feedback, Thanks guys. Any idea for sizing in the shoes, are they close to or about the same as converse chuck taylors? e.g. size 11 coverse would be size 11 in OL shoes?

Cheers,
Daniel

Getstregnth.com (a nz site) has VS athletic Olympic shoes, great shoes to start off with, still a true olympic shoe and a lot more affordable than overseas ones.

Sweet, Thanks guys.

I might start off with the GS ones when I got some money and then later in my years of lifting move onto something more pricey like the Do-wins or pendlays.
