These are my first pair of dedicated powerlifting shoes. If you're considering lifting in normal shoes (or running shoes like I was) or trying lifting shoes, make no mistake. I'm never going back. The Powerlift 3.0s allow me to get into a squat position thats safer and gives me more strength.
Let me begin by saying I love these shoes. I've had them for a week and have used them every day for high bar squats. I have poor ankle mobility due to an old fractured tibia that still has a plate and screws in place, yet the heel lift in the AdiPowers help me keep an upright posture which in turn has eliminated my low back pain. I have gone from a wide hip dominant low bar squat to a narrower stance high bar squat that is more quad dominant. I'm not big on style but they look and fit great! The Velcro strap sets very secure and the tongue doesn't slide down the inside. I wear only for squats so I can't say if they help or are comfortable for other lifts.
These shoes have helped me immensely with my squat depth, which is the primary reason I decided to give them a try. The quality is great, and they're very stable, yet easy to walk around in. I LOVE these shoes.
I got to try these shoes for my lift yesterday and immediately after switching out from my home/running shoes into these I felt the stability of these shoes. Did some cleans and squats and these felt amazing.
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.
I'm not a fan of the aesthetics of the shoe with the triaxle design that looks like the Star of David, or how the BOA system looks. However the BOA is functionally great being able to dial in tightness and fit, as well as being comfortable. The pitch of the heal is bigger than the adipower, so for those with mobility issues it does help. The style grew on me which to me was the only downside, but the performance and comfort overall are great. The BOA lacing system also has a lifetime guarantee from BOA Tech.
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 !!
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.
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.
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.
Nice Shoes. In the beginning I wasn't sure on the sizing. I tried on a pair of Adidas running shoes and ordered off of that. First putting them on it was tight and I did not think they were the right size. After lacing them up and strapping in they felt great. They were comfortable and fit perfct. Lifting: Awesome. During squats I felt like my feet were in conrete and stable. Helped me squat a little deeper, it felt comfortable and stable. Would highly recomend.
I've only had a few work outs in them but so far they are fitting and working great. No issues with manufacture can be found, no loose threads or mis-aligned parts. I wear a US 11D and these fit me very well. As you expect, these are Very Supportive from heal to ball of foot but do allow comfortable flex at the ball of the foot for OLY lifting.
After having worn these for about a year I cannot imagine anything else being better. At the very least the bar has been set pretty high. The stability with these shoes when catching weight is second to none.
My husband really likes these shoes. He was weightlifting with his crossfit sneakers and he says that they make a big, big difference. He definitely recommends them and says that he would buy another pair in a different color
Bought these shoes as my first weightlifting shoe. Thought I had made a good pick considering they felt great when I trained. Problem is literally one month after I started wearing them, the plastic part in the heel of one of the shoes got a crack in it. Overall, had potential to be a great weightlifting shoe, but apparently the quality just isn't there. Disappointed.
I have had two pairs of these shoes (white and black and the red and black) in the past 14 months. With both pairs the torsion system cracked which led me to place a quality claim the first time. I was given a gift card to purchase the red and black ones no questions asked which was nice. I am now in the process of doing the same thing with the red and black ones. These ones lasted a little bit longer than the first pair, but not by much. It doesn't seem like too many people have had this issue but I do advise any avid weightlifter to check there torsion system on a regular basis. I do not do anything out of the ordinary for what these shoes are designed for. I train 4-6 times a week and compete on a regular basis. I understand these may be cheaper to manufacture compared to the 2008 ADISTAR with the wooden sole but those shoes were a far superior product compared to the new style. Even if the wooden sole shoes were a bit more expensive I would pay for them! Trust me when I say the die hard weightlifters would also pay a little more for something close to the old style. Please take this into serious consideration!
I bought the shoes based on the more expensive have to be better but not the case in these. Withing a couple weeks the stitching in the tongue was coming apart and the piping was coming apart. It was probably a bad set of shoes but for the price made me leary of trying another set.
I bought these shoes for squats primarily. Like many reviews have previously stated, these shoes make you feel glued to the ground and really provide a stable base for squats. It's really quite impressive how much better my stance feels. They fit great and provide the support I was after. They are a little uncomfortable to walk it but if you need them for olympic lifts only, they should work great. Definitely the right buy.
I got these shoes to help with performing the Olympic lifts and help place me in the right position when squatting due to lack of mobility. They have tremendously helped in these areas and they also feel great on my feet. I highly recommend these shoes.
As anyone looking at these shoes already knows, they are the gold standard for weightlifting. Use confirms this, more comfortable than other shoes in a similar price range with exceptional grip and stability. No hang ups as far as I am concerned. Will buy again (in ~10 years when these wear out). If you live near an employee store and can get a pass, $100 is an absolute steal for the quality of these shoes.
I was debating getting these or the Romaleos but i'm glad I got these. They were a little tight at first but after a couple of lifts my foot settled in the shoe. It is a snug fit but comfortable. I was using Reebook crossfit Lifters and these are so much better. I don't have a wide foot so these were perfect due to the narrow width. My feet are defiantly nailed to the floor with these.
Like playing soccer on wet grass then discovering there is a thing called cleats. WOW! If you have a bodybuilding powerlifting heart. Please get these. Don't think about it! They can be a bit out of many pls price range but if you skip some chipotle with guac a couple times and cook some more meals, have water instead of that $15 mixed drink you'll make it up in no time. They felt a bit stiff the first two weeks. Then they softened up like your favorite baseball glove. Now these puppies and me are a team! Hahaha I love them. I feel like I'm anchored to the ground. One tip is to make sure your knee alignment is on point when going down because they are not as easy to move with weight on the bar. So you'll just have to practice your lift off. Not so bad right. I mean who doesn't love perfecting their lift. Lol
I upgraded to the adiPower Weightlifting Shoes after USAW cert.. I lift 4 to 5 days a week and they are truly amazing. If you're serious about lifting then make your feet happy. Your ankles,knees, and hips will thank you.
Before this purchase, I heard a LOT of great reviews about this shoe. From fitness youtubers, to fitness forums. So I'm sure that it's a great shoe for some people, but it really isn't the right lifting shoe for me. I've used it for over 2 months now to give myself ample time to fairly rate this shoe. I swear I must have gotten a defective pair or something. I don't know how to describe my problem so I'll post a picture of it. This part of the shoe constantly pops out, no matter if I lace it, tight or lose. It also causes a lot of pinching in my big toe area because it pops out. The material is also too thin for my liking and does not provide enough support for me. The lacing was not very good, and constantly got caught onto the velcro strap. It's snagged a couple of times and the threading has been messed up by this. If I could return and get a refund for this product I would, but sadly, I don't think it still qualifies for Adidas refund policy. It's a decent shoe for lifts and does what it's made for, but just beware. Try before you buy.
