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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by L0uis In love from the first use
I have been weightlifting as part of CrossFit for 4 years and recently starting to focus more on weightlifting and participating in club level competition. This is my fourth pair of lifting shoes and I have to say my favourite! Right from the very first lifting session in them they were extremely comfortable and way more stable - especially receiving position for snatch. My other shoes have wooden heel so I was a bit dubious about moving away from this but I really DO love the AdiPower. I am a female and they still fit great, I am usually a size 8 so ordered the 6.5 and very happy with them, especially this being my first pair of Adidas shoes. Love the new color scheme too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KSUN Fantastic stability
I was looking into purchasing weightlifting shoes, specifically for squatting. Initially, I was hesitant in buying the adiPower shoes because I have relatively wide feet; and I had heard the shoes were quite narrow. However, they fit wonderfully.
The adiPower shoes provide an incredibly firm foundation on which you can lift, and I highly recommend them for serious weightlifters. I noticed that I instantly improved in terms of how much weight I could squat, as well as my depth in the squat. Simply put, these shoes will anchor you to the ground.
NOTE: It is important to realize that these are NOT for exercises like running but rather explicitly constructed for weightlifting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jus Lift These are a rock solid pair of lifting shoes. I am not going to saying thing new that you have not already heard but what i am going to offer is my sizing guide.
I was able to try on the Powerlift 2.0 for sizing before I bought my adipower. In the store they had a size 11 and a 12. The 11 was a bit to tight and the 12 was loose so i knew the 11 1/2 was going to be perfect.
In Converse I am a 10 1/2
and in Jack Purcells I am a size 11

Rated 4 out of 5 by I believe in fitness Different than the red ones
I cannot believe that nobody is pointing the difference between the black and the red Adidas adiPower. Overall the shoes are exactly the same with one exception. The shoe lace on the red pair has an extra hole which gives a better support. Don't get me wrong. I love the shoes and I also did not notice till my friend got the red ones. I felt kind of cheated. I lift for over 20 years and I was pro athlete. I highly recommend the shoes. Just make sure u get the red ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allan395 Definitely a worthwhile investment!
I am 63 years old have been lifting for the last 12 years, and have worn Adipower shoes for this last year. They make a real positive difference in both correct form and weight lifted. I would not hesitate to recommend these shoes to anyone that is serious about weightlifting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jsh3434 so far so good
I have only used these shoes 4 times for about 6 hours total so I cannot speak to how they will hold up. These are also my first pair of lifting shoes so not great for comparison, but they are about as comfortable as I would have expected and only seem to be getting better as I wear them. I do know that are much nicer looking than most weight lifting shoes that I have seen.

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.
