    Ma Strength Fire Horse shoes

    https://www.instagram.com/p/BnImvjQF...=1e6lgj9hhzys7

    Just got these as Ive been meaning to for some time now but stalled, delayed, or forgot to order them until recently.

    So far:

    -Slimmer than my ancient Dowins. I got size 41's and it seemed a gamble to choose which size. With one pair of socks, I could squeeze my index finger behind my heel in the shoe. OTOH, going down to the next size might crush my pinkies. We'll see how this feels tomorrow under some weight.

    Heels are same height as my old Dowins. Soles are just under 1/2" thick.

    Two pairs of socks, a lil more snug.

    That's an interesting color choice!!

    BTW, do you know what the heel height is on those? I went to the website and all it says is that the heel height is set for Chinese weightlifting technique, whatever the heck that means.

    Total heel height is 1.5", just like my ancient Dowins. Soles are just under a half inch thick making effective heel height about 1.1"

    Maybe I can get some chicken nuggets, fries, hash browns or ice cream cones.

    Sell out!

    I have other reasons for those colors.

    Test run seems like my old Dowins. Only had time to work up to a 141 FS and some bar work. May seem a bit big but not sure yet until I do some actual SnCJ.

    I packed them in my bag with my Dowins to weigh them at the market but forgot to and didn't feel walking back after buying ny groceries.

    Thanks!! When I saw that you were comparing them to the older dowins, I figured they were pretty high.

    I used to have a pair of those ancient dowins, in suede blue and really liked them because of that.

    I have them. Heel is too narrow and feel a bit wobbly to me.

    I always meant to weigh mine at the market scale or my buddy's gym meet scale but I will come this week.

    I think they are lighter than my Dowins.
