Tweet from Heidi on December, 24th:

The Nike Romaleos 2 is newly designed for 2012. Nike made this high end weightlifting shoe even better by shaving 50 grams off the weight and increasing the forefoot flex. Exclusive Nike contoured TPU heel wedge cups heel and supports foot to provide unmatched lifting stability. The Integrated lacing and double power straps lock foot firmly in place and they are very supportive, durable upper materials and with solid construction. The upper is constructed from durable synthetic materials that are ultra-supportive with integrated lacing and two large Velcro brand closures that keep the foot locked in place. Inside, elastic has been added to the top of the shoe to flex with the tendons of the foot during the snapping “triple extension” movement of clean and jerk lifting.
The Nike Romaleos comes with two different sockliners: a softer insert for training and a harder version for competition, when athletes benefit most from zero deflection as power is transferred through the foot. They are a bit heavy, but don’t have any give in support. They are a tad high for price at $199.99, but are a great option for any avid weight lifter.

The Black and Volt high top is tied with a toggle system, which is then covered and zipped up with an asymmetrical zipper. The integrated traction on the outsole to eliminate clogging and provide maximum stability, and Lunarlon cushioning to keep you comfortable, even if the weather’s not. Keep your eyes out for these shoes this fall.

“Nike Inc. (NKE) unveiled its new National Football League uniforms today, skipping the duck-wing and lizard-skin prints that it put on some college teams. The world’s largest sporting-goods provider stuck mainly to the 92-year-old NFL’s traditional look as it begins a five-year licensing deal that may add $500 million in annual revenue, according to Chris Svezia, an analyst for Susquehanna Financial Group in New York.”
