I just ordered a pair from ringside and was wondering if it was a good buy, or if I should have went with the older model of the Adistars

BTW, does anyone know where you can find any other colors than these and the 1/2 black and 1/2 grey ones? DLH and Mosley have both worn all black ones to fights, and Mosley wear white and aqua ones against Mayweather.

Thanks

hi mate, in the first adistars (which are better) u can only get black/blue and black/grey, your probably thinking of adidas champ and champ 2's
i have both and prefer the original blk and silvers, better support just as light and are alot more durable, ull get more out of them then u will the beijings, still love beijings but they dont last half as long imo

Please post pictures or video of the Beijings if possible. I'm thinking about ordering mine from ringside soon. How long did they take to ship?

Believe it or not, it only took 2 days from the time they were shipped

Ok, so I really like these shoes. They are made with mesh and a type of rubber material throughout the shoe which make them very light and breathable. On the inside it has a type of foam padding which makes it pleasant if you're not wearing high top socks and really molds to your feet.

There is a type of molding on the heel that really grips on to your foot, which keeps your feet from slipping out. The bottom has a type of rubber kind of like a wrestling shoe, but not as vulnerable. The speed heel is amazing, VERY comfortable; it plays as a type of shock absorber and makes pivoting very easy.

Bottom line, shoe is great, excellent support and grip. Only problem is that the holes for the laces are small when you first get them, they will widen out once you break em in.

haha, I told you about these shoes on ESB and that I was getting them, but you apparently beat me to it. :sleeping:

Because I live on the border they would be a lot more expensive to have shipped to Canada, but I can make arrangements to be delivered to a friends place on the state side, and will use that code. Quick question before I order..how do they fit in comparison to your normal shoe size? I was telling you how i ordered the machomais one size larger because they are a bit narrow...do you think these would be ok same size or also to step up a size?

thanks.

With pretty much all adidas, I would say order a full size down. So if you wear a 10 in shoes, order a 9

Bretto2, not sure if you were answering my question, the thread starters question (really seemed like a bit of both), but do you have any idea what shoes De La Hoya is wearing http://i.cdn.turner.com/sivault/multimedia/photo_gallery/0911/boxing.megafight.in.waiting.pacquiao.mayweather/images/manny-pacquiao-oscar-de-la-hoya.jpg ?
