New Kicks!

June 14 2015

I ordered Marlaena a new pair of kicks called the Reebok CrossFit Lite TR shoe and they are sweet!! Reebok originally designed their 1st ‘powerlifting’ shoe a couple years ago under the guidance of Mark Bell and Jesse Burdick, who are both very accomplished American powerlifters. Mark Bell is the inventor of the slingshot and various other strength accessories and is also the owner of Super Training Gym in Sacremento, California.

The Reebok CrossFit Lite TR is the second generation of the shoe and are very similar to the 1st, which were called the Reebok Power Lite. The Lite TR look like they're a bit better made and are offered in a wider variety of colour schemes. The shoes got their inspiration in part from old school Chuck Taylor’s and they have a flat sole, wide toe and good ankle support.

These aren’t shoes Marlaena will be wearing every day. She’ll be using them mostly for her bigger lifts; squats, deadlifts, presses and kettlebell work.

I ordered a pair for myself as well but I’m still waiting on Mr. Snail Mail to deliver them. I’m super excited to try them out though, a training partner of mine, Ryan Fisher has an original pair and he absolutely loves them!
