About Risto Sports LLC
Risto Sports was founded in 2008 as Botev Sports and in 2010 we changed to Risto Sports. We make Weightlifting shoes and Weightlifting equipment. Elite Weightlifters are involved in the creation of the models and selection of materials. We make all our products in the USA, except our shoes that are made in South America. We make sure that workers are paid fairly and all of them have Health care benefits
We are the only company making shoes with wood heels and leather. All the major brands have switched to Man made leather and plastic or vinyl materials.
We also train Elite weightlifters that have won Olympic and World medals.
As shown in Muscle and Fitness magazine, you can now own the Risto Tiburon II. It is designed with input of Daniel Nunez, 1980 Olympic Gold medalist and owner of 9 senior world records and 11 junior world records. The Olympic Champion notes that the shoe is light weight, has a flexible forefoot, features a wood heel at the ideal heel height for Olympic weightlifting and squats. Hands down the best designed heel and forefoot structural design, so you can crush those PR’s. This product uses natural leather with a more environmentally friendly tanning process. In effect, color of trim will vary. This shoe has been tested and approved by Dmitry Klokov, World Champion and Olympic Medalist.
