I would highly recommend these lifting shoes 110% - Since my purchase, my squats have being more sturdy. I can squat with better form and heavier weight. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is in to weightlifting as they help with your performance. This has been one great investment.
The feeling on one feet was great while on the other the heel was not tight enough, and the shoe was sliding when I tried to clean and jerk. Tried to change which leg will go forward but that didn't help, the second shoe felt loose in the heel. I do recommend the shoe as it felt very good on the other leg. I ended up keeping the drehkraft, even though I didn't like it at first.
After lots of research on various brands of weightlifting shoes, flat shoes, cross trainers etc. to try find a shoe I could squat, deadlift and overhead press in I opted for the adidas powerlift 2.0. I like the heel height which is great for squats but not too high for deadlifts. These shoes lock you in and keep you anchored, and it's easier to notice when your form is off. I was also able to add 10kg to the bar for squats in my first workout in these - might just be psychological but I don't think it is. After two weeks of use I'm really happy with my choice, this is a great shoe for body builders and powerlifters and deals well with all the big compound movements. I've had loads of guys in the gym ask me about these shoes and whether they really help - yes they do. I ordered my regular trainer size and they fit tight(ish) as they should and perfect for me.
I am a competitive powerlifter & bought these for bench pressing primarily. They are excellent for this purpose and also for front squats. They are light, comfortable and supportive. Absolute bargain. Great service from Adidas too.
By far the best powerlifting shoes I have seen. I am a novice weight lifter, lifting for 1 year. My deadlifts and squats have improved. I can genuinely recommend these lifting shoes. The shoes are comfortable and provide great surface area contact -essential for lifting performance. Stability and quality of lift have improved. I would recommend these to anyone serious about weight-lifting. Note. I usually wear 9.5 UK size however the shoe come up extremely small therefore the size that fits is 11.5/12. Note they are not available instore to try, therefore recommend order two sizes and paying and picking up in store.
Purchased these powerlift 2.0 shoes as they come highly recommended. have used now on a couple of occasions and they provide a sturdy base for you to squat from, comfortable, and fit just right . I usually go for a 9.5 for a snug fit in trainers as this shoe has a narrow front you may need to size up by .5 of a size. ordered online. needed to exchange to size up adidas gave me the same discount as originally given despite that expiring during that period they honoured the original discount. as always excellent customer service from adidas. In the colour ( black\yellow) purchased they were cheaper than the others added to that the discount received a real bargain.
I purchased these for my 12 year old son who has been after a pair for a while. He found them very comfortable and great for weightlifting. The price is very reasonable compared to others on the market.
I caught these shoes on a sale, and love them. Quality construction and provide a great stable platform for lifting weights. Appear to be durable construction also, and I find this is typical of Adidas shoes.
Whether lifting is a hobbie, or your true passion, why not provide yourself with the tools to succeed. Since adding the "powerlifts" to my gym bag I've been able to lift heavier, and with better form. Great for back/ front squats, deadlifts (my main lifts) and all the Olympic lifts as well. I've also convinced two other friends to try them, and they've had positive result as well. I'll be continuing to recommend these to anyone that's looking to up they're lift game. LIFT ON!!!
Was having knee pain from squatting. After buying these knee pain completely gone. I wear a women's size 9 normally and a size 7.5 was perfect for me. Will buy another pair when these wear out for sure. Great for squat and deadlift.
It has been a couple of weeks now and I am enjoying these shoes. I feel much more stable while doing squats,dead lifts,etc. I would definitely recommend these shoes for someone looking to upgrade from regular trainers
A great value for the price and they do the job as described. If you are looking for an affordable squatting shoe, this would be it. My shoe size is a 9.5 US and the 9.5 in these had the correct length but it was a bit loose on the width. If I were to choose again, size 9 would be ideal in these. In the mean time, I will be tightening the laces and I won't be jumping in them. I also have the adiPowers and I prefer these but purely for aesthetic reasons. With the adiPowers, the 9.5 fit perfectly for me.
I bought these shoes for leg workouts and they did not disappoint. Well made and a great fit. They help provide a stable base for squats and other leg exercises. Try them for yourself and you will not regret your purchase.
I have been looking at buying a pair of lifting shoes for quite awhile. These were on sale so I pulled the trigger. After lifting in Five Fingers, these will take getting use to because of the slight heel lift. Have put them through a few workouts and can say I should have purchased these sooner. Made a big difference in the feel on squats and deadlifts. Sizing was just a little big, but a better sock will help that. Overall very satisfied
So pleased with how fast I received these trainers. They are perfect for the lifting element in the crossfit classes that I take. Light on your feet yet supportive in the right places. I will be definatly be recommending them to my clients.
I've been back and forth on getting WL/PL shoes for a couple years and never pulled the trigger because of cost. I found these for about 50% off and scooped them up immediately. They feel great, are solid, and I haven't noticed any shin-angle changes in my squat, dead, snatch, etc. from my previous lifting shoes. Get 'em if you're looking for a great shoe solely for lifting.
Bought these shoes at my normal size of 8uk and when I put them on I could not wear them for more than 10 minutes at a time,they were squashing my toes and way too narrow,sent them back free of charge and ordered an 8 1/2 and they fit perfectly,good sturdy shoes,they should greatly improve my squat stubility.
I've had these shoes for two weeks and have used them 5 times since I'm on a three day split. First off, the fitting(everyone's concern). There are so many people stating "too tight" or "small", and I almost thought the same when I received them. Most shoes you slip on and go, but with these you have to cup your ankle, make sure your heel is completely back in the shoe then tie and strap. I wear a 10.5 in all shoes, with exception to running shoes, usually an 11. That said these are not running shoes, so I ordered 10.5 and perfect! My main issue was footing with shoes and slipping to front during hack squats and leg press. Foot moves in shoe on rep 5 or 6 and have to reset to finish set. Kills the momentum and vibe of the set. With these bad boys, no more! So that knocks out fitting and reason I wanted them. For the price these are a must anyone serious about their leg days. Secondly and overall, placement, depth, comfort, and peace of mind knowing these are going to be with you until you either upgrade to Adipower's, stop going to the gym, or some random disaster. Great buy, don't doubt size, and most of all TRAIN HARD!! And like CJ would say, "BUY 30!"
I am usually a 9.5 UK so I ordered 10.5 and they were a perfect fit. Very pleased - super comfortable but solid. Wish I had got these earlier rather than using regular training for weight training..... Recommended
I squat medium width, and low-bar and these helped me sink my depth better than the running shoes I was wearing before. The heel is the perfect height. They also help with stability a lot, especially if you walk out the weight rather than use a monolift.
Went up on my olympic lifts immediately. Not like 100 lbs or something crazy, but I had a lot more security down in the bottom when I caught snatches overhead. My squats are better too. Can't speak to deadlifts, but if you want more security in squats and snatches, get some lifting shoes. I bought these for the price, but I'm happy with the quality. Adidas has some goofy looking shoes with fire and wings, and I don't know what's up with that, but they've been in the business of providing quality gear to serious athletes for a long long time, and these shoes are great.
After suffering from a bad ankle sprain at the beginning of the year, I have been dealing with ankle flexibility issues. This negatively impacted my form and balance while squatting and I was compensating with plates under my heels. These shoes provide a similar benefit while providing additional stability. Quite happy with them. Docked a star due to uniformity. The sole of my right shoe is positioned further toward the toe than the sole of my left shoe. It doesn't seem to affect stability in squat but there is a noticeable difference. And note for other females - drop a size from your normal tennis shoe and these will fit just right.
Having purchased these for my son, they arrived just in time for his second competition where he managed to achieve a PB in "clean & jerk". He's convinced that the new specialist footwear played a part in lifting that day, all I know is he had a smile on his face and quality shoes on his feet. There were a mix of men and ladies at the competition and at least 95% of them were wearing Powerlift 2 shoes so they must be worth it. Well done Adidas.
I measured my foot according to the size guide. I stepped on a piece of paper and measured the foot. My foot is 27.2 cm with socks on. I ordered size 44 2/3 (27.6 cm) and fits prefect to me. Almost to small on my toes, but still perfect to me. The shoe is good and stable to use and there is a big difference compared with ordinary gymnasitk shoes. Good quality and I like theam :)
Firstly this review is being without actually using the shoes to squat or dead lift etc it's just that trying them on I felt the need to write one...so to the point. These shoes are insanely narrow and shallow!!! I know Adidas run narrow in 90% of their trainers but this is ridiculous. I bought my size and the length is perfect but they CRUSH my toes flat because they're so shallow at the front and very narrow on the front half of the foot. I've noticed some reviewers mentioning to go half a size or a full size up, which I will try but I cannot see that making a difference considering just how narrow and shallow they are. Also, very slow delivery for a company of this size.
