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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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'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 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 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'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 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 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 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.
