Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mia 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!

I seriously do not know how did I lift before I had these shoes and why in the world did I wait such a long time before I bought proper weight lifting shoes?!?!?
Well, it must be the price. These shoes aren't cheap but they worth every penny.
That being said, I do not recommend these to beginners which needs to spend time learning proper form before they use advanced equipment. Also, these are solely made for weightlifting, NO CrossFit WODs, NO general training at the gym, NO running, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball...you get it...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Edgewalker Amazing O-Lifting shoes
I have a great pair of O-Lifting shoes and didn't need these, however, when I saw them on the Rogue Fitness website, I couldn't resist. I am so glad I got them. They are impeccably made. The materials are great and they are solid. The neoprene under the tongue keeps the foot in place and the power strap locks the foot in tight. The sole maintains contact with the ground and the heel plate is rock solid. Everyone at Aspen CrossFit loves them when they see them. I recommend them to all our athletes. Get them before they sell out!!! You won't be disappointed...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hogieman 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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BigBearMeat 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hoover42 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jmillertrain 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Suabluag Adipower in Powerlifting
I am a power lifter (not the same as oly lifting)
I manly use these for squats and I would like to say that these are some of the most stable shoes I have ever worn for this lift. Once I am set for my lift, I feel as my feet are stuck to the ground.
I wore some heeled shoes before that cost roughly around 115$, but I would consider the adipowers a few levels above those, so the money is well worth the quality of these shoes.
I like to wear a size 8.5 so my feet has a little bit to breathe, but I know that a size 7.5-8 would fit my feet perfectly, so I went with the 7.5 for a snugger fit. There is a toe socket for this shoe, so going with a half size or one size smaller than your regular shoe would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wthunt11 Great shoe, but had a KNOT
They are great shoes and fit just fine, loved the shoe. However, after careful inspection, I saw that the left shoe had a huge knot on the bottom of the shoe that could be felt when wearing it.. It was extremely obvious on the outside of the shoe as well. I really couldn't believe that Adidas would send out a product like that, which was OBVIOUSLY defective...
Regardless, the shoe felt AMAZING so i will be returning them and ordering another pair, will just have to wait about a month for them to ever get here due to the return process...
Would I recommend? Yeah, just make sure you really inspect the product.

a little tight in the width with anything but the thinnest sock. otherwise, a bomber shoe--was looking for a little more support for the olympic lifts.
