Rated 5 out of 5 by Phoenix99 Awesome shoe. Must buy if you're a weightlifter
Bought this shoe for my weightlifting workouts. Used them today for squats and I was very impressed. I can get to parallel with normal shoes. With these I got significantly lower than parallel.
After the workout my quads were extremely sore. This shoe puts a lot more emphasis on them. Previously the only way I could work them that hard was to pre-exhaust with leg extensions and then squat.
Haven't tried on deadlifts yet.. Not sure the raised heel will be as beneficial as with squats.
And while the price is high, the materials are premium grade, so it's worth it.
The shoe is very focused and pure so should only be used for weightlifting.

First lifting shoe so cant compare it with any other out there.
The solid and elevated heal has forced me to lean forward when preforming my lifts making sure that my foot stays solid on the floor without the heel raising up. The support is great and even small things such as the grip on the tough making sure it doesn't slide around is what makes this shoe the best out there in my opinion.
Sizing: I am a size 8.5 running shoes will a little space at the end of the toe and ordered a size 7 because they did not have a 7.5. They are a little to small so only was able to try them once but will be exchanging them right when they get a bigger size so my toe isn't getting crushed. I recommend going half a size down at most or the same size if your shoes are already tight fitting as they are supposed to fit tight especially for powerlifting.
Customer service: Very fast to reply to email all were within 24 hours and shipment was in 3 business days with standard shipping. Overall one of the best online purchases i have done. Return policy is simple best is to call and they will help you though it all over the phone. Gl picking your lifting shoe I am glad i picked this one.
Discount: Sign up with email to receive 15% off your purchases is very quick and simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Slayer87 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JTollz25 AdiPower Review
This is my 1st strictly weightlifting shoe, and, thus far, I am extremely impressed. Growing up as I trained and played high level Ice Hockey, I have always trained in some form of running/cross training shoe. I would always notice my feet sliding, or the shoe causing me to compensate for lack of balance due to sliding when handling heavy weight. With this weightlifting shoe, I now feel that once I plant my feet where I want they will stay there. My feet no longer slide side to side or forward to back on the sole. Great supportive weightlifting shoe for an advanced lifter!

Rated 5 out of 5 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 5 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 5 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 5 by Abutcher An excellent addition to my gym bag
At first I was a bit skeptical about the performance of weightlifting shoes but after some research it became evident to me that Adidas has the best product on the market.
One thing I have always loved about Adidas is that their shoes always fit true to size. These shoes are no exception. They fit perfectly and look so good.
As far as functionality, I absolutely love using them. I feel they have already helped my squats and power cleans tremendously. This product gets a five star because they do exactly what they were designed to do and that's no joke. Go big or go home!

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.
