Try adidas gazelles. They're perfectly flat on the bottom. Weight lifting shoes are similar
You need a hard sole and they are very different.
There is nothing local. Well- you may be able to buy a used pair from the Semi Weightlifting club.
Are you weightlifting (not too be confused with bodybuilding/powerlifting)? And why have you settled on the adidas ones in particular? Which model do you want as well?
Absolute must if you are weightlifting. You can get away wich Chucks for strict deadlifting.
I have the adidas adistars as well as the ironworks. You will lift just as well with the powerfirms which are Canadian and much cheaper. The Do-Wins are another popular choice.
dynamic-eleiko and pendlay. In fact, I believe last years adistars are on sale for $120 which is a steal.
This thread has pics of most models and where to buy them from. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=113028901
Hope that helps.
