Rated 5 out of 5 by Jay33 Soooo sickk.
So I've been "eye balling" these shoes ever since I seen them at the weightlifting competition at the Olympics. Reading nothing but good reviews. One fine day, my gf surprised me with these bad boys, and I've been obsessed ever since. They fit like my casual adidas, but a little narrower at the toe. But its not really a bad thing, cause the shoe locks you in. squats are cleaner, deadlifts feel amazing, and even casual workouts where your standing feel alot nicer. Little stiff to walk in, but that's the whole point, balance. Not a running shoe. Very solid, very stable, no wiggles on heavy weight, feel like rockstar.

Rated 5 out of 5 Female review of the mens adiPower
This shoe fits perfectly. I wear a 9.5 in women's footwear, and was hesitant to go down an entire 1.5 in size (thought I may be better off just going down one size), but I listened to the recommendation and I am so glad I did. Ordered a size 8 - perfect fit, very comfortable. Allowed for a super stable squat, let me go deeper too. A solid shoe so far, quality appears to be there too. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by abulphysio Well worth the money
I've been dealing with patella-femoral issues in my right knee for the past 2 years. I am able to squat almost 300 lbs without these shoes so doing basic physio exercises to rehab my knee were just not cutting it. From the 2 leg workouts I've done using these shoes I can already feel the difference in my VMO's contracting in both of my quads. Amazing product. I feel like I can finally get over this issue and get back to playing whatever sports I want.

First lifting shoe so cant compare it with any other out there.
The solid and elevated heal has forced me to lean forward when preforming my lifts making sure that my foot stays solid on the floor without the heel raising up. The support is great and even small things such as the grip on the tough making sure it doesn't slide around is what makes this shoe the best out there in my opinion.
Sizing: I am a size 8.5 running shoes will a little space at the end of the toe and ordered a size 7 because they did not have a 7.5. They are a little to small so only was able to try them once but will be exchanging them right when they get a bigger size so my toe isn't getting crushed. I recommend going half a size down at most or the same size if your shoes are already tight fitting as they are supposed to fit tight especially for powerlifting.
Customer service: Very fast to reply to email all were within 24 hours and shipment was in 3 business days with standard shipping. Overall one of the best online purchases i have done. Return policy is simple best is to call and they will help you though it all over the phone. Gl picking your lifting shoe I am glad i picked this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ManletOfAdiAppreciation Easily worth money if they last :D
After seeing countless reviews on sizing I went with a size 9. (I range between(8.5 in chuck taylor) 9-9.5(in rare cases even 10)).The fit you want with a shoe like this is very snug, but not so snug that it cramps your foot. I would recommend that if you're like me and already wear shoes that are snug fitting, go half a size up from your chuck taylor(they run big) and half a size down from your regular street shoe.
High bar squats feel like a more natural movement pattern with the shoes and so far they appear to be good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeanM Great next step!
I have been weightlifting since I was in grade 5 and am now in grade 11. I used normal running shoes up until about 1.5 months ago, when I purchased the Adidas Weightlifting shoes.
Just 9 months ago I had surgery to get a fully reconstructed ACL from a rugby injury. I am now at the point where I have got back into leg exercises like front and back squats, and also exercises such as cleans, jump shrugs, and other olympic lifts. The last two months or so I have been progressing the weight I use a lot more. These shoes not only allow you to get WAY more power into these exercises (especially the squat) than any pair of normal shoes, but I find they also help prevent "knock knee" for me (knees forced inward when doing exercises).
I am very pleased with the shoes and am now squatting more weight than I ever have in my life, even before my ACL reconstruction surgery. These shoes are very beneficial and I strongly recommend them to anyone looking for the next step forward in their weightlifting training.

I have owned these shoes for four months and could not say anything negative about it. Well maybe the color could be less flashy but besides that, these shoes are perfect for weight lifting. The soles are flared, which is an upgrade from the older Adistars. This gives the lifter greater stability and thus results in less missed lifts. They are very robust and will probably last at least five years of abuse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigTony adiPower is amazing!
The best shoe that I have ever squatted in. They instantly helped me sit back farther in my squat, while becoming more upright, placing less stress on my lower back. Moreover, they provide great stability throughout the whole movement.
The shoes run true to size, so ignore the reviews that recommend ordering a half size smaller; they would be too small, if I ordered a smaller size. I am a size 13 in normal Adidas and am also a size 13 in the adiPower. True, they fit snug, but they are supposed to.
I highly recommend this shoe and do not squat in anything else.

I bought these shoes for my boyfriend as his Christmas present. He was so happy with them. He has noticed a dramatic difference in his squats/lifting with them on,compared to the flat wrestling shoes he was wearing before.
I tried them on and noticed a difference in my squats right away as well, I can't wait to order my own pair!
One thing you should know for ordering though, I ordered a size up because I read they were a bit tight fitting. I am glad I made that choice because they fit him perfect. So just be sure to order a size up if you have wider feet!

Honestly. I never do reviews. They're a waste of time. But I will for these babies. If you wanna SKWAAT some heavy weight (I would like to swear here but I'm kinda mature now) then these are the shoes for you. Leave your Nike frees in your gym bag, whip out these bad boys and hit some ATG. (Solid base. Metatarsal strap is nice. Great looking shoe. Etc). Spend the coin. Wait for UPS. Receive package. Unbox. Skwaat. Go home. Eat. Sleep. Gains.
