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!
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 bought 3 pairs of these pants... 2 heather gray and 1 Black With the exception of the Black pants, both the Gray pants started to pill (get fuzzies) after 1 wash. I can't understand how the black pants are perfect and both Gray pants are pilling... Adidas should look into this.
I ordered this product to wear in the Gym. The fit is slightly tight but that is exactly how I expected it to be. The quality is good although quite thin so will be good for the summer. Overall this is a good product and I would recommend it.
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 had my FitSmart for a couple years. I only recently started wearing it all the time. I decided to start tracking my activity. It will just reset it's time to 12:00, losing all my data. I can just be sitting there, walking, doesn't matter. If it decides, my info is gona and I have to sync again to get it to the correct time. Super frustrating when you're trying to track progress. Would recommend this to everyone if it didn't have this issue. Would like to know why this keeps happening and if it is happening to others. If I can't get it to correct, I'll have to switch brands.
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.
Nice urban camo design, tight without being too constricting, clima cool makes them very breathable. Stitching around the crotch means you get less visible 'bulge', which is great for me as I wear them at the gym, I wouldn't recommend wearing no underwear as they can become slightly see through when stretched. Great for squatting and lunges, no bunching material or sagging waistband! I'm 6'2 with fairly muscular legs, I bought a size L and they fit perfectly but I can see how they would be a bit long if you were a shorter guy.
I bought the same shirt, same model and size in black right after Christmas. Loved it. Thought I would buy a different color so I did. So disappointing. The shirt was way too big for a small, I mean big, like large big. The last one was the same size and it was perfect. I don't got it.
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!
Overall perfect sports essential watch. Tells the time, then with one button shows you your Steps, Distance, Calories burned and more. Calories burned calculates the active calories and passive calories as well, so there's no more guessing. Tracking a Gym workout or Run on the street/treadmill is super easy to do, it's accurate, and super user friendly with the miCoach Train & Run app, and it syncs quickly through bluetooth. The app also offers free training and running programs based on your goals, and has an in-ear coach that you can listen to. The Heart Rate monitor is perfect for training, and there is also a progress bar on the side of the display that shows you how close you are to hitting your goal. NOTE: The picture makes the watch look like a hard plastic type of material, however it is really silicone. Very soft against your skin.
Got these in both camo and black. I find these have greater range of motion than other Adidas compression shorts, even Techfit I've had in the past, but aren't quite as substantial as others. For one they lack the little plasticy bands at the bottom, which sort of mimic kinesiology tape and add a bit of extra compression. They also aren't as thick, which is good in the sense that they offer lighter, cooler, more flexible compression. Also, the gusset in the crotch doesn't extend over the butt, so they ride up more easily. They are basically high-grade underwear, which is great, really, but there are better hardcore sport options as well. I have a 29-30 waist and wear small but that is pushing it. If your waist is any bigger, go Medium or larger.
Got a pair of these tights in my standard size (small) and they seemed smaller than most techfit bottoms (pants and shorts) that I've had in the past. They are even smaller than team issue and other various Adidas compression, which I think fit even smaller than techfit. Anyway, maybe I got a defective pair as the waistband ripped off within and hour. The irony about these, though, is that the material of the legging bit is actually incredible. It is super-flexible but still offers compression, great for a complete range of movement to a degree I've never encountered in a compression tight, including past techfit styles. The material here is also lighter and thinner. Not sure what went wrong with mine--whether they were defective, or the material too thin and they really should be folding the waistband over the material before sewing so there isn't just one flimsy seem. II'd even blame myself for buying too small a size but all my other techfit gear still fits in the same size and I bought the exact matching shorts to these and they fit fine.) Maybe Adidas decided to tighten the waist on the tights as a loose waist on tights can lead to tights coming down when a person is running in them, somewhat unlike shorts. At any rate, even if you have a slim waist, as I do, go up a size from your usual is my only advice if you want these.
Overall I like the shirt. Only wish it wouldn't ride up when I run. I have the base tights too and the shirt always rides up so I have to constantly pull it back down during a run. A thin strip of clear rubber around the bottom might solve the problem!
I was a fan - these WERE great workout T-shirts - 85% poly 15% cotton - now - as others have noted they are 100% poly - not as comfortable and not as good a fit. Too bad....should have bought more back in the day :(
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 tried this product on a couple of runs I am a slightly larger gent with no issues, would recomend these for any activity. Bought three more pairs that good. Tiny critisim is that the labels are awkward to get out without pulling stitching picky really.
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.
highly recommended it to everyone. I purchased a XL but it kinda tight for me then i decided to going up to XXL and then the XXL is perfect fit, comfortable except for the back length of the shrit is slightly short so i dont know it suppose to be like that or what but whatever.
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.
