micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
My training has focused on the Big Lifts (Deadlift, Squats) and hope to eventually get into Olympic exercises once skill and strength allow! Picked up these shoes as part of the arsenal and couldn't be happier. During all squat variations (front, split, back) my feet are planted like granite and my confidence and work rate have skyrocketed. Highly recommend for anyone looking to up their Big Lifts!
I was sceptical at first about buying these expensive shows, however these are very well made and hopefully will last a lifetime. Fits perfectly, my feet are wide at the top but it still fits fine with no discomfort. Made a huge difference in terms of flexibility and allowing me to lift without bending back. Holds the ground solid which allows you to lift more weight. Well worth the investment.
Just like all the other reviews these are a solid pair of shoes, I hover between size 8 and 8.5 so I got 8 and they were slightly too small, but it definitely helped my squat regardless, they're well made, etc...
I was advised to order a half size down to get a really snug but comfortable fit. They fit very well. The stability in these shoes is amazing. Hit a new PR on my squats the first leg day that I used these shoes. They look awesome. I really like the velcro strap for metatarsal support. The raised heel makes deadlifting in them a little awkward. Still doable though.
These shoes are of exceptional quality. Very solid, secure grip. They run a little narrow. If you are weightlifting (clean-and-jerk, snatch), these shoes are great. They have just the right amount of lift in the heel. However, for powerlifting, most of us require a flat heel. I implore Adidas to made a powerlifting version of this shoe. Just make the heel flat - no rise. It would easily be the premier powerlifting shoe on the market! And, that's a huge market. There are many more powerlifters than Olympic weightlifters.
I've had the adiPower for a couple months now. They arrived snug and broke-in perfectly within a couple workouts as one would expect. Comfortable. My feet feel planted, solid, and secure on squats, deadlift, powerclean, and press. Good construction, breathable. Reminder: design is for weightlifting during which these excel. I would not want to engage any cross-functional training or running or anything else, not even a long walk home. And with such focused purpose, I am getting a return on my investment in these shoes.
These shoes are incredible. I have no issues hitting depth in flat shoes, but these make a world of difference. I feel insanely stable, and the strap locks me in securely. I love these for front squats especially. I recommend them to everyone I know who lifts weights. I usually float between an 11.5 and a 12, and I opted to go for the smaller size - which was the perfect choice. They feel tight, but not uncomfortable.
I bought these shoes to give me some comfort for squatting. It made a big difference. It takes the strain off your legs and lets you lift for longer. It looks cool and doesn't pinch your feet. Love these shoes!
I've been using these shows for Olympic style weightlifting and they've been great. I wear a woman's size 8.5 to 9 and the men's 7 fit pretty well. The on,y downside is they are narrow so they squeeze a bit. I think once I wear them in, this won't be a problem. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.
I bit the bullet, and got these shoes based on countless awesome reviews. And they have been awesome for my workouts. I don't think I can ever squat without weightlifting shoes again. However, after just a few weeks of use (3x week) I noticed the heel on the left shoe wearing down. This isn't typically a problem I have with any of my shoes and I was under the impression the weightlifting shoes were built tough. I haven't seen this problem mentioned elsewhere but it would e nice if replacement neoprene soles were available.
These are by far the best shoes out there for Olympic lifting. I've used them at least twice a week for a year and they're in the same condition as the day they arrived. The durability and stability is just unreal. Highly recommended.
I think my feet are wider than normal, so this probably won't be a problem for everyone, but for me the front of the foot area is a little tight. I have to make sure the laces are loose in the front so that my feet get as much room as possible to fit in them. Everything fits great though, and if I didn't have wide feet they would probably fit perfect. I'll deal with it. I would still recommend these shoes regardless.
There's nothing really to say about these shoes other than what has been said a million times. The quality is incredible, the sizing is about as true to size as you can imagine (went to an Adidas store and tried regular runners and ordered that size). I'm really blown away by the increase in my performance in the gym. Even my standing curls are better! It's been said the foot is the foundation of any movement. I'm glad to have Adipowers being my foundation.
Only complaint is i wish the toe box was wider, they fit comfortably but the toe is long and narrow. The tip of the shoe is empty even though the width is correct and my smaller toes are very snug against the sides of the shoe.
I've started to transition from Crossfit to Olympic lifting, so I wanted a shoe for the job. I tried a lot of different lifting shoes before settling on these. These were the most solid and stable. I recommend these over the competition. The strap does a good job of really locking you in. I ordered a half size down from my normal running shoe and Crossfit shoe size. You want these to fit pretty snug. I'd say go off your normal size but then go a half size down. They offer free returns here, so there's no risk in trying a size you aren't sure about. The white looks fantastic. It'll get dirty fast, but they are weightlifting shoes--they're meant to get dirty. Overall, highly recommended shoes. I PR'd my snatch / added ten pounds to my snatch in the first week. Awesome.
I would recommend buying those shoes half a size smaller than you usually buy any regular shoe or any adidas running shoe. I had adidas running shoes size 9,5, but for these adipower i have to take size 9, because weightlifting shoes have to be as tight as possible for maximum power to be developped on the weightlifting platform. I have narrow feet so the width was perfect for me.
I had initially bought Romaleos 2, which were heavier than expected and the inner strap was way too long that it use to drag on the floor and annoy me. The Adipowers are lighter and fit more snug, feel as stable as any other. Love them, should have gotten the Adipowers from the start.
These shoes are amazing quality and for anyone who's serious about weightlifting, whether you're a beginner/ intermediate or advanced they'll add something to your lifts/ overall performance, I've always had issues with getting below parallel while squatting or feeling somewhat unstable during certain points of my lifts and with these the difference is substantial, you really feel planted when squatting in these. In regards to sizing they fit the same as all my other training shoes/ Adidas superstars, the only exception is the Powerlift 2 shoes from Adidas which I had to take a half size bigger in. While the price is significantly more than the Powerlift 2 there's quite a bit of difference in regards to quality, I'll upload one or two pictures so you can get an idea of the heel height difference/ see the difference in the strap. These shoes should last you years.
I wear US11 nike free runs, 11 vans and 10 converse. I bought size 11 adipowers but they were half a size to big. They were perfect at the begining but once worn in, they got bigger. Buying a second pair right now, will try to sell the other ones to someone at the gym. Recommend 100%, awesome support, your squat will got up garanteed!
I was a boy before I bought this shoe, I am now a man. People buy me protein shakes after my workout to commemorate on not only lifting alot of weight with great form, but doing so while looking super fly
I have a pair of Adidas weightlifting shoes circa 1985 (leather, wooden heal lifts etc.) and decided to get with the "new era" ... the fit is a comfortable "snug" fit ... just what you want! I am extremely happy with this online purchase. Tip: I sized my weightlifting shoes from my Adizero Boston Boost running shoes and the fit was exactly the same. I highly recommend this product!
Depending on what your goals are should influence your buying decision. If your goal is to lift with more confidence and stability, this is a great product. If your goal is to pick up stuff in the back hard, throw it over your shoulder walk around and dump it somewhere, you may lose your confidence in your "backyard shoes". These shoes are great for Olympic lifting. There are certain parts of my lift where I feel more planted on the ground, primarily at the top. The shoes fit great, they are easy to wear from the locker room to the floor, however they make warming up on the treadmill a little challenging. If you purchase these shoes, you will be very happy
These are absolutely perfect. The stability, fit, lacing system, and elevation are outstanding. I had read reviews that said to order a half size down, however, I used the "Chat with and Expert" option and ordered my regular size. My true shoe size is 9.5 C as measured with a Brannock Device. I ordered a 9.5 and they fit perfectly. Actually, they are now the best fitting shoes I own. Get your foot measured and order that size. If you are thinking of getting weightlifting shoes, GET THESE!
Bottom Line: I haven't been lifting forever but in two weeks I noticed an improvement in strength, form, stability and overall workout effectiveness. Don't opt for the lesser model, I've been told they're less durable, less comfortable, but ok if you're into crossfit. Background: I've only been lifting steadily for about two years now, and finally in the last few months began deadlifting and I figured with heavy squats and deadlifts I should get some lifting shoes. Fit: I've been wearing adidas since I was old enough to make my own purchases and so I'm generally familiar with their sizes. In the past I've bought mostly soccer gear but the sizes seem to be true across different activities. As stated they are somewhat narrow so take that into account. I wear about a 10.5 for comfort sake in adidas so I can just slip my shoes on in the morning but went a full size down on these so I could get a snug fit. The first wear was rough, but they have stretched out a bit to where they feel great. Great support, too. Durability: The laces kind of suck, if they get caught in the velcro they fray kind of bad. (oops) That really isn't a big deal though, especially because that was my fault. If you only wear them for your heavy lifts I imagine they will last you a while. I'm also 25 so my feet aren't growing anymore.
I've been doing CrossFit for about a year now and recently my gym opened a 'Babes & Barbells' class which focuses on different olympic and power lifts instead of the traditional WOD. I use these shoes for that class and I love them! First and foremost, I feel super cool :) Secondly, they are very stable and solid. I CrossFit and run in Vibrams, so the transition is pretty big, but I'm happy to use them for the weightlifting class. I struggle with mobility in my squats, so having these shoes gives me a stronger and deeper squat. I'm generally a 7.5 - 8 ladies and went with a size 6 in these and they were very comfortable. I guess I would say they're a little on the big side...
