I had to use men's sizing because I am a large women's size that most don't carry (12). I ordered a 10.5 and an 11. I went with the smaller size, they are a little big but the 10s would have been too small. Quality is excellent. I use these for squats only and they are perfect, my feet don't budge when I squat. Best purchase ever.
I have been looking for a new pair of shoes made specifically for squatting. I have been using flat solved shoes for years and wanted to try the raised heels for high bar and front squats. The Powerlift 3 shoes fit the bill for my needs. I like the slight heel raise and how it affects my squat performance. The shoes are well made and fit well but seem to be a bit narrow in the toes. (I wear size 12d and ordered 12d). I have only used them for one front squat training session thus far, so time will tell as far as shoe longevity is concerned. Still, at this point I am very pleased with the Powerlift 3 shoes. I will likely only use these shoes for high bar squats, front squats and similar exercises.
Good fit, I took the advice and ordered a full size bigger but could have got away with just a half size, no width issues and I'm a very wide 9. Stable and secure on the platform-no slipping or sliding, surprisingly comfortable from the off. Near unbeatable value in the sale @ £52.50. I bought the green ones and they are a lot, lot greener than the photo suggests but personally I love it-nice to get away from the usual "blokey" blacks, reds, and whites. Took a little longer to arrive than expected and not sure of the need for a box within a box-just a lot of extra packaging to dispose of. I would definitely recommend a pair.
This is my second pair of these lifters. Adidas has always fit my foot well and I have never had quality issues. And I love that I was able to get these customized with my name on the heel. Even with the customization they arrived in s week !!
Bought these shoes as new to lifting and didn't want to spend too much incase I didn't get use out of them. Really good value and comfortable. Good quality won't need to buy another pair for a few years
The shoe was a bit tight the first few times I wore them but eventually stretched out. I'm really impressed with the support they give when squatting. My feet feel more connected to the floor and stable. Oh and I get a ton of compliments on the shoe from my gym buddies. Been asked ton of time where I got them LOL. Good purchase!
Product was very high quality and exactly what I was expecting in terms of looks and comfort. Very effective weightlifting shoes and I recommend for any first time or regular Olympic weight lifters or crossfitter.
Great shoes. Noticed much better stability in my squats. Works well for all compounds. Granted my squats are still quite low compared to lots of vets, when I reach much higher weights I may move away from these shoes.
I've always use flat shoes to squat and decided to get these powerlifting shoes since now I'm starting to squat heavier. It's a great investment if you're looking to make gainz. Make sure to buy half a size down then your regular size.
I've only used these a few times since I got but I must say already they've made my squats better. I love the shoes. Definitely a must have. I have to get used to keeping them on longer but for now I only use it for legs workout and deadlifts. Maybe I'll get used to it
First pair of lifting shoes and these are great. A little strange to get used to at first but once you tell yourself they are just for lifting they are true quality. Not ideal for anything else but lifting.
Uncomfortable. Tongue is not padded all the way up and you feel the instep strap pressing against your foot when the ankle is fully flexed. The tongue is made from a plastic mesh and has neoprene padding underneath. The neoprene padding does not extend all the way up the tongue. So there is no padding where the edge of the instep strap meets the top of your foot. The lace system is lousy. Aside from the tongue and laces it does the job but I'm not satisfied with the $$ i spent.
Why you like the product or why not? The fit is perfect and very comfortable, the style is very unique and very different from the every day running shoe. The quality is excellent and it supports my feet very well. I love the shoe so much am planning to buy the white one.
These shoes are a must for beginners and intermediates who squat or do strength/bodybuilding training regularly. Added 10kg to my squat instantly with better form and now my flexibility in my lower body is exponentially better. Highly recommended.
These shoes are everything is hoped for and more. I'd wanted them for ages and just never got round to actually purchasing them. There incredible, straight away when using them, I noticed a massive difference. Adidas's Find Your True Fit I have to say, is incredible and got my true fit for the products I purchased spot on.
Excellent weight distribution through the foot when olympic lifting, lighter than the previous model. Extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend for anyone who wants to improve their lifting capabilities.
Bit of a delay in delivery but delighted when they arrived. Fit perfectly and very comfortable. Provided great stability when squating and feel they gave me a solid base in everything I do at the gym.
Comfy and easy to wear. Worth the money. Not sure if it's purely psychological but my squat has improved no end since I've had these shoes with a substantial increase in the weight I lift, and now that I can get proper placement on the floor with my heels I have discovered "leg drive" and my bench press technique has also improved. Happy customer. Definitely recommend.
I'm originally a UK size 8. I bought a size 8 but it was too small and tight. I bought a size 8.5 but it was still too small and tight. I'm now waiting on a size 9 to be delivered. Hopefully they will fit. I do have broad feet so perhaps that may be the reason to the discomfort, however I do have size 8 adidas gazelles which fit perfectly.
I pondered what shoes I wanted to buy for a fairly long time. these seemed to be a god middle ground between price/performance and I liked how they looked. Pros: -comfy nice and tight along the outer/upper side of your foot making feel really secure. -really solid grip on the floor -I personally really liked how they looked cons: the ONLY issue and this was the deal breaker with these shoes is when I was doing some 270lb+ squats (200lb body weight) they were squishing under my feet. my girlfriend thought my heels were coming off the floor it was bending so much. if you're lifting lighter these are really nice shoes and I like them. but If I can't squat in them what's the point.
First pair of lifters, was worried about the comfort but they feel great. Superbly made and great stability. Would recommend. I'm anything from a uk7-uk8 so sizing is difficult, I went for a 7.5 but probably could have done with an 8 for a little more room length wise.
I thought I'd give these a go after hearing rave reviews from over lifters and as an upgrade from my Power Perfects. I think these look a lot nicer than the other lifting shoes Addidas stock. Also, the good fit means I definitely feel more stable when I lift, and the heel height is just right to maximise my squat potential over flat shoes/bare feet. If you are a oly/powerlifter and can afford these, you must invest!
Very good shoe, have never used weight lifting shoes before and they make a big difference to my squat, would definitely recommend to anyone new to squatting. Only downside is they are slightly tight but bearable, if you are buying and have wide feet go for one size larger. Quality is superb, look and feel very good!!
First ever weightlifting shoe and it definitely makes a difference. Great all-round shoe, expect it to last a while. I take womens size 7 in a normal shoe so I bought mens size 5 and that was spot on - people say to go 1 to 1.5 sizes smaller but that would've been too big for me.
I'm 5'9" tall, 185 lbs, medium build, and I wear size 10.5 for normal shoes, so I decided to buy 10.5 in these Adipowers. Weightlifting shoes are not meant to provide the cushioning and comfort at the level of flip-flops, Nike Roshes, and whatever other shoes are out there today. These are weightlifting shoes. These fit snug around all sides of my feet, which is better than having a weightlifting shoe that is not snug or leaves too much room. I have slightly wide feet, so sometimes I require the wider version of some shoes if they are available. In terms of width, the 10.5 sized Adipowers fit me just right. Had I gone up a size, to 11, it would definitely be more comfortable, but I would have been left with too much room on all sides to spare, which would not be beneficial for stability and safety reasons. However, tightening the straps and laces excessively sometimes causes me some discomfort during lengthy workouts. This may be because I have to wear in the shoe some more since I've only had them for a month. Then again, tightening any shoe too much cuts of circulation to the foot. Anyway, lengthwise, these Adipowers leave me with about an inch of space in the toe box, which is optimal for the splaying of the feet during movement. Quality-wise, I think the quality of these weightlifting shoes are worth the price you pay for them. They will last years if you don't abuse them, but I've known many friends that have the old red ones and the Adistars, and they've held up nicely over the years. Overall, I would highly recommend this product!
