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.
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.
Why you like the product or why not? The fit is perfect and very comfortable, the style is very unique and very different from the every day running shoe. The quality is excellent and it supports my feet very well. I love the shoe so much am planning to buy the white one.
Comfy and easy to wear. Worth the money. Not sure if it's purely psychological but my squat has improved no end since I've had these shoes with a substantial increase in the weight I lift, and now that I can get proper placement on the floor with my heels I have discovered "leg drive" and my bench press technique has also improved. Happy customer. Definitely recommend.
First pair of lifters, was worried about the comfort but they feel great. Superbly made and great stability. Would recommend. I'm anything from a uk7-uk8 so sizing is difficult, I went for a 7.5 but probably could have done with an 8 for a little more room length wise.
I thought I'd give these a go after hearing rave reviews from over lifters and as an upgrade from my Power Perfects. I think these look a lot nicer than the other lifting shoes Addidas stock. Also, the good fit means I definitely feel more stable when I lift, and the heel height is just right to maximise my squat potential over flat shoes/bare feet. If you are a oly/powerlifter and can afford these, you must invest!
Very good shoe, have never used weight lifting shoes before and they make a big difference to my squat, would definitely recommend to anyone new to squatting. Only downside is they are slightly tight but bearable, if you are buying and have wide feet go for one size larger. Quality is superb, look and feel very good!!
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.
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 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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
I've been a lifter for years, doing everything from squats to cleans. I had no idea what I had been missing out on until I got these shoes. The stability gives immense confidence in all your lifts and helped improved form issues I never knew I had.
