It's Thursday evening, I'm sitting in my room and have just ordered these shoes, i'm excited. I go on about my business and the only downside with the whole experience was it took longer than their 3-5 working days delivery estimation. I understand this is an estimation, however I came home from work everyday only to be disappointed it hadn't arrived. But, finally they arrived. I tore through the packaging like a raging bear through the wilderness chasing it's prey. Then Bam, I hit bedrock. There they were in all their beauty and splender. I instantly strapped them to my feet and air squatted til I couldn't no more. ( Good thing is these shoes just make you want to squat. ) I'm not an expert by any means when it comes to weightlifting shoes, but these puppies were nice, especially for what I want to use them for, which is why I didn't splash out a little more for a more expensive pair. They feel solid, but you can still walk around in them, without looking suspicious. They feel great wearing them, I purchased a size 11, however a friend of mine let me try on his 10's and whilst they felt tighter, I probably couldn't have squeezed into those for my particular sessions. And so for long term use, I thought I would go for 11's just to be comfortable - but that's not saying i'm walking around in a pair of slippers, these puppies still feel good. That leads me into my first workout with them, I decided we'll put them to the test with power cleans. They instantly felt good. I don't know if it was the shoes, or the excitement the shoes brought, but I managed a new PB in both cleans and front squats. I was like you, who I probably imagine are trolling through the comments section because you really want to buy a pair but you're just not sure if you should pay splash out the dolla, so you're looking for someone to convince you. Do it. These shoes are perfect for the keen, enthusiastic gym goer, like myself, who is messing around a lot with power movements and Olympic lifts. In saying that, I'm not throwing around massive numbers, or squatting with big big weight myself. But Put it this way, if you squat, clean, or snatch - get these shoes. Many people will tell you that they aren't necessary, and that it's all about your form, not your gear. Whilst I completely agree with the form statement, doing those particular movements in a pair of running shoes, defeats the whole purpose. Running shoes are designed to absorb impact and absorb pressure. If you're trying to rip a bar to your shoulders you want all of the power you're generating to go straight to a solid surface. And as far as the barefoot argument goes, you'll be able to stay more upright with a bar on your back/shoulders and sit into the squat more if you're heels are risen slightly above your toes, than you would if you're foot is flat. The people who really want to get you down are the people who couldn't justify the purchase and/or have the money, they will tell you well it's false gains etc, help from gear. At this moment you should just leave their company as they talk absolute madness. Just because you put these shoes on doesn't mean you're going to hit serious numbers, let's get that'l straight, but like the title suggests, they promote better form, which in turn will help you hit bigger numbers. As I say, I'm no expert. But if you're toying with the idea, if I was you, ( which I was ) I would give them a go. Happy lifting x
Nice shoe. I have been using them happily for squats, OHP, and deficit DLs. They are comfortable, stable (although I am only 125lb so not squatting massive numbers), light in my gym bag, economical, and even get compliments for their appearance. A note on size for any other gals purchasing this shoe: I'm a woman's size 8 and got men's size 6.5 as recommended on a lifting forum and they fit like a glove. The men's size 7 which I "should" be per the sizing chart would definitely have been too large.
Just as you would expect from Adidas, this shoe is very comfortable. After going from running shoes to these I feel WAY more stable doing squats and deads. The fit is just right and I have somewhat wide feet. I really feel grounded when doing squats now. The heel wedge height feels just right. Since I work out at home on rubber flooring these babies will never leave the house and should last a long time as they feel to be very well constructed. By the way, I bought the red, white, and blue color scheme and they look great! If I did go to a gym I'm sure they'd be noticed :)
For the last 6 months, I've been borrowing a pair of the older Adidas Powerlift shoes from my coach for lifts at the gym (cleans, snatch, front/back squats, presses). It was time to get my own. I went with the Powerlift 2.0 based on the reviews of others and the price was right for my budget. The biggest thing I noticed right away doing squats was the solid footing it gave me. I really liked the feel and felt like I was able to press though the heels effectively. I wear a size 11 in everyday shoes, but ordered a 11 1/2 in the Powerlift shoes and they fit well. I wold definitely recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a good lifting shoe.
Received a pair many years ago as a gift. At first, they stung my feet like no other! But i was determined to wear these since the gift was from a dear loved one... after a week or two they increasingly felt better until they felt GREAT! Wearing basic sandals won't cut it anymore. I continue to buy these exclusively and wear them often! If your feet hurt at first, that means they are working! The bottom of your feet are in worse shape than you thought! They NEED to be constantly massaged! Keep wearing them and soon they will feel amazing, take my word for it! A++ 5-STAR Sandals!
I've bought several Ultimate and Clima Ultimate T shirts over the past several years. The Size Large Ultimate T shirts produced a few years ago fit perfectly. All of the Clima Ultimate T shirts in size Large, while long enough, are tight across my shoulders and chest. Although finding that mildly annoying, I kept the Clima Ultimate T shirts while attributing the difference in fit to their being a slightly different style from the Ultimate T shirts. Ultimate T shirts I bought a few months ago fit well, however, those I purchased just a few weeks ago run small like the Clima Ultimate shirts. Why is there such inconsistency in the sizing of these shirts?
I bought these for my fiance as a Christmas present. I took a chance & ordered these ones as they were half the price of others online. My fiancé is a bodybuilder & considering how cheap they are compared to others online - he absuloutly loves these shoes! They're not suitable to walk in (not even to the gym) unless you want to wear down the heel. The heel is a great advantage (so he tells me) as it gives you stability & firmness when deadlifting. By far the best present I could've ever got him. Great quality, very comfy, red/black looks great, excellent customer services & fast delivery. Very good value for money & NOT a cheap quality product.
I had been lifting with my chucks until I tried these on. Felt very solid and stable unracking from the squat rack. 3/4" heel is perfect for me in terms of not pushing my knee too forward. Good ROM throughout. Heel does not compress at all when I push down on it with my thumb. Overall a good purchase. Would recommend them.
Was skeptical at first but undoubtedly an awesome shoe for squatting. The flat sole and hard cuff on the shoe provide much appreciated stabilization for the knees under heavier loads. The grip is awesome, theres no moving them after you plant your feet. All around great shoe. My only complaint is that the picture shown doesn't accurately portray the shoe. The picture shows them having a solid red strap (I got the blk/red ones) but they actually have a pattern like the blue model.
adidas are by far the best slides you can buy. the nike slides will rip after time, and slip off your feet. Adidas slides are tight, comfortable and will very much message your feet :) . i wear them after soccer games when my feet are just killing me. (i play diffrent clubs all the time so i am always playing soccer). And within fifteen-twenty minutes my feet feel amazing! i have had mine for about a year and they still look great. You can honostly wear them anywhere and they look GREAT WITH ANY OUTFIT. i hope my review will help you buy them if you are still second guessing them. If i ever make it to premier league. i will be advertising these for sure.
You guys out did yourselves. By far the best footwear that I have purchased. Can't say enough of these sandals. My feet feel great after wearing these sandals. Thanks people. I'm thinking of buying a second pair.
I think this is a good shoe, but I continue to form a more solid opinion on it as I workout in these. I have a video review of it with me working out in them on my channel as I form a better opinion of the shoe over other exercises.
I purchased this short and first was skeptical. When I got the short and worn it for running for the first time with it, I was surprised. Very comfortable to run in and wasn't as short as I thought. Perfect fitting. I actually ordered 2 of these shorts.
I was looking for good Oly lifting shoes. These are a good starters for the price. I like the fact that they stabilize my feet a lot when I squat and then I can focus more on the power. I have tried doing Oly lifting in them and it helps there too. Gives me great stability. However I haven't been very confident about doing the split jerk in them. Its just that Im used to doing that in very flexible shoes. Also, I got one size smaller and they were too tight but then I was too excited and worked out in them anyways. Now that they've been broken into, This size feels perfect very snug and sturdy. I don't feel that its too tight anymore.
The shoes feel and look great, they're of very high quality and should last for years. As someone who struggles with mobility/ being able to hit depth consistently while squatting these have helped for sure, my form improved and I felt stable throughout all lifts. Like a lot of other reviews the issue with size arose for me, I'm usually a size 10 but I ordered a size 10 1/2 with these, they were still a little too tight on one of my feet, I'd recommend either going up 1 whole size or chancing the 1/2 size up like I did. I would consider picking up the power perfect 2 over these if you're struggling with mobility but for the price you really can't go wrong on these and adidas have a great return policy that's very easy to go through. I've uploaded a few pics of these in another colour from adidas speciality + one picture with my thumb by the elevated heel to give you some size reference in regards to how much of an elevated heel these have.
