Who are the Nike Romaleos 4 good for?

This is for the competitive power and olympic lifters. These shoes offer the stiffness and heel height that are good for absolutely nothing besides when you are doing heavy lifts. If you are a casual gym goer these are most definitely unnecessary especially at the $200 price point. However, if you are trying to increase your lifts, these are a game changer.
