Risto Sports Shoes survive F3 Tornado

At Risto Sports, we received the most incredible email from a customer. Our customer wrote that their Risto weightlifting shoes survived an F3 tornado.  Having no other shoes to wear,  they wore these shoes for what appears to be days for 12 plus hours at a time.

Here it is, unedited:

I just wanted to let you guys know how amazingly built your shoes are.  My wife and i were in Woodward, Oklahoma last week visiting her parents when the tornados hit. We were all in the house when it hit, but we survived.  My Ristos were the only shoes I had left and had to wear them while I sifted through the rubble.  I never thought I would be wearing OLY shoes 12 plus hours a day but they were still comfortable.  I just wanted to let you guys know you definitely make a quality product that can make it through an F-3 tornado, and multiple hours of wear.  Needless to say I’ll be buying me some new OLY shoes, and they will definitely be from you.
Ive also attached a couple pictures.
Thank you for your time.
