micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
This shoe was completely awesome to run in along with working out in the gym. It stayed comfortable all day every day for as long as I had it. I recommend this shoe to everyone who is active most of the day.
I have incorporated squats into my leg workout every week but my technique has always suffered. After having reviewed a tutorial on Youtube, I took the plunge and bought the proper footwear for doing squats and the proper waist belt. I haven't looked back. The proper equipment helps to attain the proper technique. These shoes are a necessity to all who aspire to get the best out of their squat.
So I have been training in running shoes for years. This is my first pair of trainers and I love them. I am a trainer and member at Title Boxing Club and they really help with lateral movement and stability. The boost material is great and the soles are super sticky. I understand the need for the straps on the sides, but after a couple hours of hard training, they did dig the sides of my feet a bit. One to two hour sessions are fine, but if you wear them for more than that or for casual wear you may find a little discomfort. Not sure if they are worth the 40 buck upgrade from the regular ZG trainers but, that being said, they look great, are super bouncy, help with movement and speed. Great job Adidas
I bought these thinking they would be alright for my gym workouts and light running. I bought these thinking the fit would be there, as the usual quality of shoe I've come to expect however what I got was something else. These kick butt! Seriously! I have not taken them off! The fir is snug so if you have wide feet, buyer beware. The side supports are perfectly cinching so I get good movement. No slippage. The neoprene had me nervous but it paid off because it fits my foot perfectly! Well done to the bad boys of Adidas on this one!
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.
I have read it runs narrow, and did notice this a bit in the toe box, but not for long. Once I wore it around and tightened the strap around the back of the foot, it no longer felt tight, but rather secure. I use it primarily for squats and overhead press, and it's fantastic. I can walk around the gym fairly comfortably, it's stable and non-compressible, without being too heavy. I haven't tried the Romaleos, but am very satisfied with this shoe.
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.
Im very happy with this buy they are very comfortable and looks great too. I already got lots of compliment on how nice they look. They are a little narrow so I recommend you buy half a size up. The quality of the materials used looks real durable. I dont hear much hype on about these kicks but it surely is one of the best shoes I have.
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
Awesome shoe, but these run 1/2 size small, this was confirmed by an adidas rep after I bought them so thankfully adidas.com has free returns! Can't wait for my new shoes to arrive! Light, but supportive and they look good!
This is a great shoe at a great price. They are made of good materials that hold up well and don't show a lot of wear. I typically wear a 12, and the 12 in this shoe is a tad bit short. Also, they are narrow, but I LOVE that. I have a slightly below average width, and these shoes fit great. Thinking of buying a 2nd pair!
First pair of lifting shoes. Fit true to size. Very comfortable. Sturdy in heel especially noticeable when squatting, also in military/push press yet enough flex to walk around gym without issue. No real grounds for comparison but very happy overall with shoe.
I have always worn a size 14 in adidas and every other shoe company and these shoes run way to small. I tired purchasing 3 different pairs thinking that it was just the first pair that was a faulty shoe, but then when I received the other two pairs they were crushing my feet. I would have to buy 1 size larger to make them fit.
Overall, the heel adds a great benefit. Pro: - good style -big heal - solid sole and nice strap Con: - laces don't pull tight enough - I have wide feet, went a half size up. Still not wide enough -gel layer on tongue tore within first week; not sure what the purpose of that layer even is
Judging the size of these shoes before lifting in them will only make you paranoid you bought a small shoe. At home I thought I should have gotten a .5 to 1 size larger. However, in the gym and lifting they were extremely secure and confident. Very happy with them.
If you're at all serious about your squatting, these shoes are what you need. Feels amazing, allows for a very smooth movement. Only issue I had is that they're slightly more narrow than they appear in the photos. I expect them to expand a little with time, as with most shoes. If you're on the fence with these, you can feel comfortable taking the plunge.
my buddy has had these shoes for awhile now and recommended them for squating. As someone with low ankle mobility this really helped me get low in my squat while still maintaining control. I bought it for like 93$ with tax so you can't really get a better deal then that.
These shoes are the lightest shoes I've ever owned. I use them at the gym regularly and also do some light jogging in them and my feet feel fantastic. Lots of support and flexibility. However, I don't think they would fare well for regular long distance running. Overall great shoe though!
It's my first pair of lifting shoes. Always lifted with Chuck or barefoot. I am a recreational lifter, performing Starting strength style training in my home gym. Very impressed of the difference these shoes make in stability and support. I first thought these shoes will be overkill for my usage but pull the trigger on the purchase when they got on sale. I should have bought these shoes a while ago! I ordered the same size as my running shoes as other reviews said they were narrow. This size is perfect for me... no real confort but it was expected for these type of shoes and their purpose. These are weight-lifting shoes only. Don't assume you can perform other activities with them. Even walking take a while to get used to them.
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 like these but will have to return as the sizing is too small. I have a pair of the 3G Superstar slides and those are true to size and fit perfect... may just get another pair of those because I know the sizing will be consistent.
Picked up these shoes on sale for $86 from Adidas which is a great price for these shoes! Good quality shoes for the price! They fit quite narrow which is good for my narrow feet. I have to say I still really like my 2008 Adistar lifting shoes best of all! Please bring these back Adidas!
Use these primarily for squats. Coming from lifting bare-foot, I feel the slight raised heel engages the quads more and locks my feet in place. However I get less ankle mobility and can't squat as deep.
