Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing stability First off, I am a female and wear a size 8 (sometimes 7.5) in women's. I ordered a 6.5 as recommended and they fit perfectly! I have been having trouble with my squats since I started lifting one year ago. I have issues with leaning forward and not being able to get deep in the squat. I feel like these shoes have changed my life - after two weeks I hit a PR, my coaches say I have excellent form and I have confidence going up to the rack. I will say that my feet are fairly narrow and these fit like a dream - so wider feet may have some difficulties. I also wish they were lower in price but to me it is worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! I'm really glad I bought these. I am not sure why people are saying they run narrow because I have a wide foot, and they fit me just great. Also, the sizing is true to any adidas shoe so whatever size you wear in any other adidas shoe, will be the same size you buy in these. They are also light enough for indoor, NO RUNNING, crossfit WODs. I can go from OH squats, Oly Lifts, to double unders, burpees, etc. I am glad I chose not to buy the reebok, hybrid shoe, the oly lifter. These are a great investment in the improvement of my weightlifting skills! December 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wide feet For anyone reading this who has wide feet and isn't sure about getting these shoes, just get them! I have pretty wide feet. Generally narrow shoes don't fit me good but these feel fine. You're not going to be walking in them that much anyway. Just putting them on at the gym and choking them tight before a lift. btw I'm also not even an oly lifter. I'm a powerlifter. My lifts have gone up since I started squatting and deadlifting in these shoes. I actually also bench in them. I used to be an up on the toes bencher but I've recently switched to a flat foot and the raised heel improves my leg drive. April 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great lifting shoes! This is my first pair of lifting shoes, so I don't really have anything to compare them too, but the Adipowers are awesome. I got a half size down, so they felt really snug when I first put them on, but after my first day squatting with them they broke in and are extremely comfortable. Definitely helped with my footing/stability on snatches, clean/jerks, and squats. Quite pricey if you are just looking for a squat shoe once a week, but definitely a good investment if you plan on doing any olympic lifting. Just like all adidas shoes, they are a little narrow, so keep that in mind when ordering. All in all a comfortable, well built, badass looking shoe. April 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Subtle but important difference between colorways I own both the core energy and the newer red/light scarlet colorways. It may not seem like a big deal, but the newer colorway is missing the first lace loop, which changes the way the shoe wears and breaks in. You cannot get the laces to lock down as tight on the newer colorway. Whats even more puzzling is, no other design was changed on the shoe. Adidas simply removed lace loops. I have no idea why they would remove something thats important to the shoe - when you could technically lace the older colorways the same way by skipping the first loops. I prefer the black red colorway, but functionally, stick with the core energy for function - which is whats more important with dedicated weightlifting shoes April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big Boy Shoes I have been weightlifting for a little over a year and decided it was time to step up to a boy shoe. I started off in a pair of Adidas Powerlift trainers, and they were nice but I knew there was something more to be had. I told myself that once I hit a 200 pound snatch that I'd treat myself to a new pair of shoes. Thankfully that time came almost at the same time as my Tax return. Enter the Adipower's. They are fantastic, I am currently getting in 370 reps per week of snatches/cleans and jerks/squats/pulls in them and they are super comfortable. They took me a night to break in, and now it feels like I've been wearing them for a year. Highly recommended. April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great shoes These shoes are great. My goals are strength and powerlifting. These are Olympic shoes but no doubt are extremely effective for squats and other lifts. Not only are they great for squats but provide great stability for overhead press and even bench. I wouldn't recommend them for deadlifts because of the elevated heel so it almost feels like you're doing half a deficit deadlift but that's ok, 3 out of 4 lifts they're good for. I wear a size 12 normally and ordered a size 12 and returned them for 11.5 and they're perfect. You want a snug fit, they're lifting shoes, you aren't wearing these for maybe more than an hour at a time. January 11, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice but the loops I just got mine in the mail. Very nice, but one size too big than my normal size. I'm normally a 9, but will exchange it for a 8.5. Also one of the shoes were somewhat warped, I normally wouldn't mind but not for $200. I do not like the new loops on the scarlet, it feels funny where the shoe would break and nowhere near as tight as the core energy. I tried my friend's cores, and much preferred those; unfortunately they don't sell the core energy in 8.5 anymore. Still looking forward to getting my new ones in the mail. Just don't understand why they removed the loops from the black scarlet versions. Wasn't needed, and kinda worse. June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best leg shoes ever I do not do super heavy squats. Max around 315lbs to preserve my back but I will occasionally leg press 800+. Most days I will do 500+ reps on the leg press machine and the bottoms of my feat and ankles just ache. These shoes are amazing. The support is perfect and the pain were gone instantly. The muscle isolation is just superb and allow the muscles being worked to go to complete exhaustion without blowing a hip flexer first. lol I never thought that shoes could make that much of a difference, and this may sound like a lot of money, but if you enjoy working out then this is money well spent and you will notice what I have shared on day one. ENJOY!!! February 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shoes I previously owned a pair of Do-Wins and since I have relatively narrow feet, never really felt as stable as I thought I should be in oly shoes. I received the shoes in exchange for training a client of mine so I wasn't complaining. I tried out the shoes last night for the first time and loved how they felt through the movement! Definitely worth the investment for those who love olympic lifting! The most solid pair of shoes I have tried on thus far though. Fits snugly (which it should) and when you catch the bar only the very talented at being unbalanced will be able to complain about not feeling planted to the ground. Great shoe if you can afford the cost. January 3, 2013
