So I haven't bought a new pair of trainers in years (my last pair of Adidas really treated me well), and wasn't sure what to expect with these. I was not disappointed. These are super light, and I love the "meshy" one-piece upper that really fits like a glove. I've really only used these for light training and long-distance walks, but I feel like they'd hold up to the most extreme athlete. Very happy with my purchase.
Just received my pair today! Super comfortable and light weight. Lots of ventilation. Gave an average mark for quality because I just started wearing them. I am a loyal adidas wearer so I'm sure they're great quality
Great colours on the teal. The entry if the shoes is like a sock not a tongue so I sized up to 13 instead of 12. Only in store. Now it's a bit long and too long to maintain the sexiness of smaller sizes. Still nice training and lifting shoes maybe. Btw my feet are normal width.
I have been looking for a new pair of shoes made specifically for squatting. I have been using flat solved shoes for years and wanted to try the raised heels for high bar and front squats. The Powerlift 3 shoes fit the bill for my needs. I like the slight heel raise and how it affects my squat performance. The shoes are well made and fit well but seem to be a bit narrow in the toes. (I wear size 12d and ordered 12d). I have only used them for one front squat training session thus far, so time will tell as far as shoe longevity is concerned. Still, at this point I am very pleased with the Powerlift 3 shoes. I will likely only use these shoes for high bar squats, front squats and similar exercises.
These shoes are very lightweight and extremely comfortable. I have worn them a half dozen times to cross train and so far so good. Time will tell if the quality is good and they hold up over time although I have never has a problem with Adidas shoes before.
Probably the most uncomfortable shoe Ive ever purchased. Yes there is excellent support, but my feet hurt after wearing them the first day. Its almost as if the forgot to add the insole and the cushion. I have added Dr Scholls inserts and they are usable. I know they are for training but they should have some sort cushion added for impact training.
I'm not a fan of the aesthetics of the shoe with the triaxle design that looks like the Star of David, or how the BOA system looks. However the BOA is functionally great being able to dial in tightness and fit, as well as being comfortable. The pitch of the heal is bigger than the adipower, so for those with mobility issues it does help. The style grew on me which to me was the only downside, but the performance and comfort overall are great. The BOA lacing system also has a lifetime guarantee from BOA Tech.
So it's been almost a year I've been doing weightlifting, and since there was a nice 40% off Canada day Sale ($135+tax), I decided to treat myself. Coming from the Adidas Adipower, I didn't know exactly what to expect from a different lacing system AND a bigger heel height. One week in, I've had a good feel of the shoe, but I don't know if it can break in more. So the BOA system is very convenient to put on, and in terms of tightness, it's at least equal to the traditional laces and strap. All in all, it's an upgrade in my opinion. Then there's the heel height. This will vary between people because of their body mechanics, but my lifts definitely saw an improvement, with my squat greatly improving and my pulls staying the same (some people get pulled forward). The one issue I've had here (my hypothesis) was that since the heel height is bigger, the horizontal length of my foot is shorter, but the shoe stays the same size. So if you wear say a 9.5 Adipower, get a 9 of this one. It also explains why the shoe isn't as comfortable, because I have to tighten the shoe too much. All in all, it's a good pair of shoes, but I would never pay the absurd price some sites sell these for.
Great shoes, bouncy and cool design. for narrow feet i suggest stick to your own size. i got mine half size longer which i usualy does when buying a pair but its a bit longer than i expected, shoe lace is too short. overall, Highly recommended training shoes!
For me being light and flexible is a must in a shoe, these fill that criteria totally. Highly breathable, soft and the pure boost soles provide soft and subtle cushioning, especially when you start to run in them. If you want a good training shoe, or whether just for casual to wear with jeans or shorts, these are the perfect match. Highly recommend....
It feels like better construction than many other shoes including more expensive adidas ones. The tongue is seemlessly incorporated into the design. It makes for a better fit. A tad heavier than other shoes, but doesn't feel poorly constructed.
Great pair of shoes. I'm new to the boost soles, but I don't think I'll ever go back. I think they fit pretty much true to size, I bought 1/2 size up just in case but found them to be too big. The one complaint though, I have had to readjust them a few times, I find them slightly too narrow for my feet. Overall, a great purchase and I recommend these shoes to just about anyone.
Product was very high quality and exactly what I was expecting in terms of looks and comfort. Very effective weightlifting shoes and I recommend for any first time or regular Olympic weight lifters or crossfitter.
I'm a woman who fit a size 6 mens. Womens sandals I found ugly and I wanted plain styles. Maybe consider more unisex sandals and I am from Canada and the sizing was only 8 men's available a little frustrating.
Bought these for primarily for gym use, however, I could wear them all the time. Very comfortable and as supportive as a gym shoe needs to be. Fit is great and they look awesome. Not sure on longevity as yet but they appear to have a quality build.
These trainers are really comfortable and feel great for lots of different exercise - running, cross training etc. I use them to train in and also coach in and they are great for both. Only negative is that they are a bit narrower than other brands, which is a regular thing for me with Adidas as I have very wide feet, but my feet still fit in and I can wear them all day without too much discomfort. Just something to be wary of when buying if you have very wide feet.
A few other people mentioned running small, but I felt they were more than 1/2 size too small. I wear a 13, regular in all my other shoes and they fit fine. I got a 14 in the ZG Trainer and it is still a little too small. The length is about right, but with the narrow width I wish I could have ordered a 14.5 or 15. Overall comfort is excellent and shoe quality seems really good. Adidas just needs to figure out sizing and these would be 5 star.
The unusual construction - part-neoprene, part-mesh sock on a lightweight sole, with the laces attached to the sole but not the sock - takes some getting used to. There is also no tongue, so the construction is surprisingly simple. If you have high instep, getting into the shoe takes a bit of tugging, but after a few uses this seems to get easier. This is definitely not a running shoe, but it works well for me as a weight training shoe - lots of feedback through the soles. There is minimal arch support or ankle support which makes bosu ball work more challenging. The sizing is a little wide across the ball of the foot for me, but nice and snug at the heel probably because the stretch neoprene is at this end. It's like having a work-out slipper!
The shoes are great for indoor gym types of workouts, you can still feel the boost technology not as much as the ultra boost but just enough to allow you to move quickly. The only this I wish they had was additional selections of colors.
