RAW DOGS are a Power lifting Team. Some of us hold World, National, and State records. John Self is ranked #1 in RAW Bench press for 2009 in 181 class, and also has a World record bench press and curl. John tells Five Ten® "Your shoes are great for power lifting. They grip great. You do not want your foot to slip when lifting a lot of weight. I get asked all the time about my shoes."
In addition to weight lifting, the team has gotten into racing BMX as of last year. "We get a lot of attention at the tracks. We might not be the fastest at BMX...Yet. But we get seen and get noticed. And hit A LOT of races."
Good luck guys! And thanks for the info.
